@melodynelson - Unfortunately non-Facebook sharing isn't possible in the mobile apps at the minute as far as I am aware.

...no mention of future Chromecast support?

 

There is unprecedented interest - http://community.spotify.com/t5/ideas/v2/ideapage/blog-id/ideaexchange/article-id/30095/page/57#comm...

Search history is still missing. Ugh.

Fictitious: Spotify actually listens to customer demands and now supports Chromecast.

I think Chromecast support is a must-do, especially considering the demand. 

 

But how about just reaching feature parity with iOS? Or giving back features that disappeared without any acknowledgment, like search? http://community.spotify.com/t5/Help-Android/Search-history-on-Andriod/td-p/575104

 

A lot of people are quitting because the dev team either takes away features or can't add them in a timely manner (Chromecast was released in July?!). The support team seems hilariously misnamed, as they offer zero feedback on even vague timeframes these might be released, or whether the dev team is even aware that they took out features like search (after seven months of investigation, the report is: well, maybe. Or maybe not. It's still unclear).  

 

But let's commend Spotify on all the new features for free customers. Hope those work out for you! You'll probably see a higher percentage of premium users switching to free (or quitting) than ever before, at least Spotify seems interested in updating features for them.

Dear Dev Team,

 

It seems, that with the new Update Spotify for Android (0.7.8.566) the behaviour of Spotify Connect  was changed:

 

Now it is only possible to switch the playback to another device when this device is active and unlocked. Until the update it was possible to just switch without having to touch the other device. The controlling device shows the message "Can't play" or "Kann nicht abgespielt werden" for the DE version. 

 

Could you please confirm & explain this change? 

 

Kind regards,

 

 

P.S. For me this has rendered the Connect feature useless between Android devices.

This may have been changed because of the many complaints about music playing from the wrong device and not being able to disable connect. Maybe we'll get some more control via additional options in the future.

It brings it in line with Connect on iOS for me, since on iOS the app has to be open for it to be possible to control it via Connect.

Spotify developers, are you actively trying to make the service worse with each update?

 

The "Popular tracks" no longer go bold when you play them from the main artist page (Razr Maxx HD). WHY WOULD YOU TAKE THIS OUT? Is this happening to everyone?

 

Am I going to have to wait eight months to MAYBE hear an update of whether this was intentional or a bug like with search history?

http://community.spotify.com/t5/Help-Android/Search-history-on-Andriod/td-p/575104

 

Honestly. Do you guys even test this software? How do you even have jobs?

 

Also, you messed up search (see above), now we finally get an update: the enter bar is now dark, with white text. YOU'VE MADE IT EVEN MORE DIFFICULT TO READ THE TEXT QUICKLY! And I have to enter the words properly so autocorrect doesn't kick in. It's like waking from a nightmare and realizing you're on fire with this app.

 

I feel like a Neanderthal typing in all caps online. But Spotify may actually be the most incompent company that considers itself a billion dollar property. Not only can't you actually provide the features users desire, you mess up and take away features frequently. 

 

I'm a nice person in real life, I swear, but I have no problem calling Spotify, as a whole, an incompetent company with utterly useless customer support and talentless developers. I have no problem saying that, because none of the employees will read this! I'm sure it will get ESCALATED by an unpaid minion, which will surely rocket it right to the top of your priorities!
