Let me make this clear to spotify management in clear terms, im almost certain this feature was specifically designed to boost artist following numbers, at the expense of user experience, u have essentially made the offline music feature (virtually the whole reason people get a premium account) useless, thus I hope the amount of money u may be getting from whatever shady deal u made with some major labels possibly, is worth loosing thousands of premium subscribers! unless this was just one of the most serious moronic oversights, allow for users to choose between old layout and the new one, that would be the most comically simple fix
Just had this come up last night. All my saved artists are now gone from my Android's library and the only way to view things is through either "following" the artist(I listen to lots of 20th-century rock, so a lot of these artists are only putting out remasters and rereleasing every single live bootleg that was ever recorded - I have very little interest in either of these) or scrolling through every single album I have in alphabetical order(standing at 7291 songs and counting). Just trying to help support the artists I listen to with my $12 CAD/month, and would definitely appreciate things being left the way they are when I'm paying for the service, instead of obfuscating my library so I have to use a skewed playlist algorithm that puts instrumental interlude tracks from concept albums into artist radio without context and can't figure out I don't want WASP in my jazz-rock playlist after four years of consistent downvoting...hahaha.
This update is truely shocking. How do we search our library? Where are my offiline albums? Why can't I select an album that I have saved to my phone when I am offiline? Imagfine this normal use case, on a plane and I want to listen to an album saved to my phone. I can't. Who serioulsly thought that was a good idea. You need very rapidly to turn this around.
Same here, i used to to listen albums instead of songs individually, i hate that i have hasave entire album just to listen as a album, and i have a lot of songs i don't want make a playlist for each album
The ability to search at artist, as was possible before by having seperate artist buttons, is gone. Why? I can't just scroll through artists from downloaded songs, and pick what I'm in the mood for. I have to scroll through all the songs I ever downloaded / liked / saved.
The overview of what you already have and what not is gone.
Everyone please upvote this idea to bring back the old UI.
If this is not reversed anytime soon, I'm off to greener pastures.
After years as premium user I have messy kinda unsorted library, but find my way to listening with album tab. Even if I saved one track from artist I do not follow I still use album tab and find it there quite easily.. Now it's somewhere in the middle of 3500+ song playlist and nowhere else. Absolutly terrible..
I just rerolled to older version and will wait for a bit.
