Please note: Discover is only in the rollout phase, so if you don't have it yet don't panic! It will come your way at some point in the future. For anyone who doesn't know, Discover is the replacement for the current What's New Tab.
Rorey (Community Manager) has already confirmed on another ideas topic here (copied below) that there is currently no plans to return the "What's New" page.
While we don't plan to bring back the "What's New" page, we've heard a lot of the feedback regarding the Discover page. We hope to improve the type of content displayed in Discover to provide handpicked recommendations that we think you'll love.
Discover should also give an explanation regarding "why" the content is displayed. For example, if you've listened to Drake, Spotify will explain that you've listened to Lloyd. Alternatively, if you've been recommended a track, it may be because you're following someone who also listened to that track. The goal is to recommend tracks the way a friend would.
Formerly, the "What's New" page recommended just that: What's New. If the content in the "What's New" page wasn't relevant to you, you were out of luck. However, with Discover, you'll be recommended content based on who you "follow", what you've added to your Collection, and new releases from artists you "follow".
For now, we're going to mark this idea as "case closed" as we don't have plans to bring back the "What's New" page. However, if you feel you'd like content which already appears in your Collection to not appear in Discover, please head over here and create a new topic. We're eagerly awaiting feedback on this topic.
This post is going to serve as a holder for all of the other ideas and feedback about the discover tab (don't worry, kudos from this idea are noted!).
Please add your kudos and comments to the linked topics below (if you agree), if you have anymore suggestions for improvements, make a new topic with [Discover] in the title and I will add it here.
Current Suggestions for Improvement:
Apparently if you have been pushed to Discover you can still access What's New in client (this is most likely unsupported!):
Alternatively, if you haven't yet been pushed to Discover, you can manually load the page:
Searching for "Tag:new" in the desktop client will also give you new albums.
Spotify have announced they are looking at a way of showing new releases in the client - stay tuned for updates!
I do not work for Spotify
I guess it's alright to close this idea, since it hasn't been updated in a while and most links lead to a dead end (access denied) or to inactive/implemented ideas. If you have further feedback about the Discover feature, feel free to post a new idea in the ideas submission (after using the search). Thanks! 🙂
