[Android] Swipe to Queue a Track

Firstly let me say I have been using Spotify since it launched here in the US and have seen a lot of great improvements over the years. Great job!

I am a music listener who likes to let the current track play out before starting a new one.
I love what you have done on the iOS side with swipe to queue.

Can you show Android some love and put this story in your backlog? 🙂

Thanks for listening!

Hi everyone.

This has been discussed internally and while we would like to look into this, it's not currently on our radar.

That doesn't mean the door is completely closed, though. Even in a Closed state we'll still be tracking this idea and its votes.

If anything changes we'll be sure to check back in.

Marked as new idea and edited it to let it focus on 1 request.
Your other request about a larger options button has been suggested here. 😉

This is an epic idea!

That would increase the user experience enormously! 😛

Integrated gestures - Awesome!




This would be really wonderful!  Using the triple-dot button menu to add to a queue can result in an accidental play if the tap misses the button, and both that and the hold-tap menu require two actions to queue a song.

It's insane this has not yet been implemented into Android devices yet. I've had it on my iPhone for.. ages.

Spotify - get your thumb out your bum! 🙂


Please add this feature! For real, it's like a simple thing to have.

Why isn't there anyone from Spotify actually reading this? 

It seems like such an easy implementation, and it actually was one of the reasons why I went back to iPhone, since I am such an avid Spotify user.

What are the technical difficulties to have this solved? I mean, if it was easy it should probably already be done. I think this is a necessary feature. The three-dot-menu is too small, I almost always start a song or touch the scrollbar. I know I can press and hold, but swipe left is essential. I would love to know the reason to why this have not yet been implemented, Spotify.
