For me it seems like every time I update the app, some basic features are missing or not working as before. Thats why I want to collect all my major points in this post, so that maybe those features will come back in the future:
- The menu bar at the bottom of the app no longer features the Radio function, from where you can easily access all your played radio stations, whether from a specific song, a playlist or whatever. Please bring it back! The current way is not as easy as it was before.
- If you want to search for a song within any playlist, regardless if its your own or not, this is no longer possible the way we know. Currently we have to click on the three dots in the top right corner to open a new menu, select there "Search in Playlist" and after that, start typing in what we want to search. This is as bad as it can get! Please bring back the old search function where you just have to scroll at the top and select "Search"!
- If Spotify developers/managers want to change/delete basic features of the app, which were there since the beginning of it, there should be an option to say: NO, I want the old system/feature back. For example create an option in the settings to switch between new feature/design and old one.
- If you navigate to any playlist and search for an artist who has some songs in it, you should be able to play just the displayed songs. No matter if you use shuffle or not. Only the songs which are displayed with this search/filter should be played. At the moment this is not working because every time the whole playlist will be played.
