[Mobile][Other] Like in Lock Mode

Hey ! As we're often listening to Spotify with our phones locked, it would be great to have the possibility to "like" a song directly in the lock screen widget, without having to first unlock the phone, navigate to the Spotify app, go to the current song and finally hit the like button. Essentially this would require adding a little "Like" button to the Spotify Widget that appears on your phone's lock screen.

 

I think this would be a great feature that would make it so convenient to quickly add songs to our "Liked" playlists whenever we're listening to Spotify on the go or while working or in any situation really ! 🙂

If you're a Spotify user on iPhone/iPad, you might have noticed that it doesn't let you like (heart) songs directly from the lockscreen.

 

You have to unlock your iOS device and open the app to like a song. This can get annoying, especially if you come across multiple good songs within a single playlist. The feature is already available on Android application. 

 

If you want Spotify to implement it on iOS as well, please do vote and be a part of the conversation.

This may involve collaboration with Apple, but adding the ability to like songs directly from the Lock Screen would greatly minimize the effort to unlock the phone, Pull up the Spotify app, Click the song ribbon to pull up the Now Playing, and finally click the heart icon to add it to my liked songs. Adding a like option to the Lock Screen music widget could let the listener achieve the task in a fraction of the time, greatly enhancing user experience.

Either to the left or the right of the right and left skip buttons, a heart icon should be added for an accessible and easy way to add a song to your liked

playlist.

The Lock Screen for release radar or any similar playlist that focuses on music that the listener hasn’t heard should have the menu button to add to library or share the song. I’ve noticed that daily mixes have the button but consist of almost entirely songs that have either been liked before or listened to. It would make it more convenient to add new music to my library by not having to unlock my phone to do so.

Hello! Please add the "Add to Favorite Tracks" button in the mini-player, on the lock screen or in the notification center of iOS devices. Many thanks! You are best!

I really need a button Like or Add to favorites on the locked screen of your phone. The last thread on this forum was blocked
