Spotify said when Touch Preview & other swipe gestures were announced back in January of 2015 that the features would "soon be rolled out across other platforms." We're sitting here over TWO years later, we still don't have the features and won't get them. This is absolutely unacceptable. These features vastly improved the Spotify experience on iOS. Android users deserve the same treatment. Spotify needs to stop treating us like second-class users and consistently prioritizing us below iOS ... Get this done!
Hey everyone, we're going to close this idea today as we've announcedwe’re in the process of removing Track Preview, the feature on the iOS app that gives you a sneak peek of a playlist, song, album, or artist before you hit play.
We’ve taken this decision as it currently has a very low engagement rate. We’re committed to offering the best experience on each platform, and we’re actively looking into new possibilities for the long press feature.The change will take effect with app version 8.4.15.
Thanks for your continued feedback. We work hard to be as transparent as we can with these idea updates. Keep an eye on these boards for further announcements on what we'll be implementing.
