[Android][Other] Maybe a widget?

Here's a weird idea, it's august 2019 and Android has been around for 12 years. Apps and come and gone, some apps have this thing called a widget, something you can place on your homescreen and control the app from. It works really well and you as a company, who state over and over again how you value your users and that you want to be in the forefront of user experience, should really look into developing one...

This widget got daily use on my primary phone screen.  Super annoying to go into the app or pull down the notifications bar which always causes me to accidentally bump something... especially since I use this when driving via an aux cable or bluetooth.

I'm extremely upset the widget is gone.

 

Good news is every other app I have looked into switching to has one. 

 

They have until the end of the month to return my widget or I will never be customer of spotify again.

 

I will cancel my paid membership and delete the app. Once I'm gone I won't be back. 

 

I suggest everyone else do the same. If spotify doesn't want your money I'm sure every other company does.

Okay, after a very frustrating chat with a customer "service" rep, I'm quitting premium and I suggest others do the same. I don't know why Spotify would alienate so many people when there are other ways to get what we want. Shortsighted and foolish, Spotify! Goodbye!
