Queue Button moved

Visitor

Spotify has moved the queue Button from the bottom right of the now playing screen. Now it's a two step process to get to my queue, which I use constantly. Is this from a new update? Why is Spotify making the user interface less user friendly? How can I change this back?

It wouldn't be Spotify if they didn't make their users go "nobody asked for this" at every update... I think the developers are bored, and instead of looking at the community here for ideas THAT PEOPLE WANT, they just go with what they want instead.

It's super simple: sharing a song from Spotify brings more of your friends to Spotify, which leads to more revenue for Spotify. So even though users might use the queue feature 20 times a day and share perhaps 1 song a week, it makes more sense for Spotify to prioritize the share feature.

 

As an app developer, I'm can guarantee you Spotify has access to these metrics. And they can see the ratio of sharing versus viewing the queue is totally disproportionate. But what they are testing is whether placing the share button more prominently would lead to a decent enough increase in number of shares as well as uptake in premium subscriptions to warrant the massive sacrifice in usability.

 

I've always hoped that Spotify, being a non-USA company, would not deteriorate to this. But capitalism always wins. The market, not the users.

This is the correct link to vote for the Re-enable queue on now-playing screen. The one posted by the Spotify agent did not work for me

Hey @soeni77,

 

It depends. If you are listening to a playlist then select the 3 dots in the corner and it will expand showing the queue.

 

However, they have removed the queue feature altogether for the 'Song Radio' and 'Radio' listening options. Stupid I know. If you want to see what song(s) are next you will need to:

  1. Open the now-playing-screen
  2. Open the 'Radio'/'Song Radio' you are listening to by clicking the name of your Radio station at the top
  3. Scroll down to the song currently playing
  4. Then look at the order

Stupid... just stupid
