This is probably posted already but I don't feel like searching it, the same as Spotify doesn't feel like listening to people and actually putting the effort in making them unhappy.
Bring the widget back, there is nothing that is filling the functionality that it provided and we got no reason for why it's being removed. As a matter of fact removing actually took effort so we could say that Spotify is investing time in going against their client's feedback.
I hope this is not as bothersome as the unwanted reggaeton recommendations that I get every day.
Thanks and have a good day. And yes, I am very salty right now, for now, I am downgrading the app and never updating it again.
