[Android][Other] Custom functions for long press and more

Dear Spotify team and community,

 

I've found a little error, before i get to the ideas: the plural form of "Album" in german is "Alben", not "Albums" ;)

 

I guess you can apply the ideas on all platforms but i dont know it because i just use spotify on android and rarely on windows.

 

1)

I'd like to suggest an option to set custom reactions for certain actions. For example i can choose the action "long press" and choose the function "sound preview" for this action. Or for "double-touch" i would choose "add to queue".

 

Examples of actions:

-double touch

-tripple touch

-long press

-swipe right

-/left

You guys are the experts, i'm sure you have some more ideas

 

Examples of reactions:

-sound preview

-add to queue

-add to playlist

-multiple selection

-don't ever show me this track/album/whatever again and dont even play it when its in a playlist (blacklist)

 

 

I know that the long press preview was removed because of the low engagement. But i think most people didnt even know about that. Like this everyone could choose his prefered actions and reactions. Maybe in advanced settings so the heavy users can profit. I mean they deserved it the most, right? :D

 

2)

Maybe you could make a popup like for new albums and stuff if you have new functions or generally to inform your clients what they can actually do. Maybe as a video or something, i dont know. But dont exaggerate it, you know what i mean :)

 

3)

I would like to have some advanced search options like when i like a track i'd like to find playlists where this specific track is on. This could be implemented in the menu that opens when you press the 3 dots on the side of a track. Btw these 3 dots would seem to 2-dimensional as the only option to open this menu if you decide to implement my 1st idea because the long press wouldnt work anymore (except if its chosen of course ;-)

 

A similar thing would be good for playlists or albums. If i like an album or a playlist i would like to see playlists that have similar tracks as these albums or playlists i like. A mentioning of same tracks in this specific search would be great.

 

If you like my ideas i will figure out some more.

 

Best regards
