“Your Library” Change

I’m not sure who’s idea it was to take away our library but I don’t like it at all. I cannot navigate my saved music, only by the albums. I thoroughly enjoyed the old set up, I will 100% be canceling if it doesn’t change back. I’m in love with Spotify but I can’t navigate through my most recent music and artists. 2 thumbs down

I agree!!!!

The new Library in Spotify's Android Update to 8.4.95.785 navigation is awful!

The Artists page stopped showing me the downloaded music for the artists, but it now shows the main Artists page. And I can't access the Artist's music already downloaded on my phone.

On the Albums tab, it is showing approx. 20% of the music I have downloaded.

The rest is not accessible.

I have to do a search for every song I know I have, and then the Delete option is available on the menu, meaning that the song is downloaded, but I cannot access it directly.

Very poor testing on this release!!!!!

Where is the Songs list?? with all the music I have downloaded or liked.

I agree this update is awful. I have no idea why they would change it so we only see followed artists and not the artists of songs we've downloaded but unless this change is reverted or fixed soon my family and I will be switching to Apple music.

I agree completely. I have been using Spotify heavily for years now and have come to rely on the Artists view in the Library, but that view is pretty much useless now that I can't browse my saved albums from it anymore. Browsing for an album via the Albums list takes way longer than it used to from the Artists list. I hope they make the right move and revert this terrible decision

Disaster

This update is horrible,they are trying to forcing us to use playlists or using the album section,the thing is PLAYLIST is for people who didnt decide what to listen and NOBODY uses the album section.If until the end of the month they don’t FIX this mess I will go to Deezer

Totally agree. Spotify! keep it up and you'll lose a subscriber. I love the new music exposure Spotify provides.  This new "follow artist to see on my artist list" is a huge reduction in functionality for me.  I don't wnat to follow every artist just to see them in my library.  Very stupid idea.

I am in complete agreement. These recent changes are completely pointless. The Artist library isn't even in alphabetical order. Are Spotify making it deliberately difficult to find the music I love and have downloaded

There was nothing wrong with the old user interface, so please revert back to that version.

Pairedd with the fact the you are not even offering a FLAC/lossless option, this is just another reason now to change service provider. I'll be sad to leave but if I can't find the music I want then I see no option.

Hey there @fabiozilberman,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the Community!

 

From now, following an Artist should make them appear in the Artists tab. Tapping on an artist should now link directly to their Artist page.

 

Further, any albums you heart/like will appear in Albums. However, the individual tracks will not appear in your Liked Songs collection unless you save them individually. You can find all your saved songs in a playlist called Liked Songs. 

 

If you'd like to view only the songs in Liked Songs that you've downloaded, you can tap Liked Songs > tap on the three dot menu on the top right corner > Select Filter downloaded songs.

 

Hope this helps clarify things! If there's anything else we can lend a hand with, don't hesitate to give us a shout.

 

Have a lovely day :)
