Remove the annoying BEEP sound effect when controlling Spotify with external controls

Problem:

Spotify makes a wildly annoying BEEPING sound every time tracks are skipped using a bluetooth remote or iPhone remote control.

 

Possible Solution(s):

 

  1. Remove the beep!  No one will complain.
  2. Make it not annoying (quieter, cuter, maybe make it sound more pleasant than a microwave or alarm clock beeping??)
  3. Add a feature in the menu to allow us to mute it
  4. Add an "advanced user" toggle in the menu of Spotify that reveals a larger menu which provides more control over the interface, including this annoying sound
  5. Add a feature, similar to the menu on Roku, where the system doesn't BEEP every time you press a button.  I believe Roku has an intelligent alogrithm that only beeps when buttons are pressed in quick sucession (the reasoning is likely that this is the only time that people need to be explicitly aware of how many presses were registered).

There has been a series of 68+ posts in a separate thread where people are pleading for this to be solved.  It's really, really insane that a program which is explictly designed for delivering pleasant sounds is intentionally doing otherwise.  We're all here because we love Spotify, otherwise we would've long switched to any one of the other BEEP-less programs.  But, please, we beg you, fix this one glaring flaw of yours and we'll be quiet and continue giving you our $9.99/month.

 

Thank you,

The ears and sanity of many

UPDATE: This feature is added in the new iOS version 1.0. rolling out today!

 

 

To turn off the beeps go into the settings and under playback you can turn off "feedback sounds".

The beeps aren't even an option on android. I miss them from the iOS app and want to see them added as a feature in an update ASAP. The lack of these beep codes is annoying and causes me a lot of confusion with the app and its controls, especially when using headphone buttons.

Is there any reason you implemented turning off "feedback sounds" in iOS and not Android? It's been more than half a year since you fixed it in iOS but nothing similar in Android yet. And as a general question, why are there different implementations of the platform in iOS vs Android?
