Spotify Android queue

The queue in the android app isn't a queue! It's stack...

I don't know if you have made it that way knowingly or if it's a bug. But I think it should be a real queue, acting the same way as other queues and the windows app.

Yeah, I've always wondered why this is the case, particularly when the desktop version of Spotify uses a FIFO queue. It is a source of irritation for me, and it always throws people for a loop when they're trying to queue songs up on my phone at a party or something.

 

I'm sure there's probably a reason behind why a LIFO stack has been used, as it's been in there for as long as I remember using the app, but it still doesn't make any sense from an end-user perspective.

Ideally, I'd want to see some consistency between the desktop and mobile apps, with the Android 'queue' being implemented properly as FIFO, but at the same time I can't see why both can't be implemented, giving the user the option to 'queue' or 'stack' a track. 

If the Spotify team aren't going to change the feature to be FIFO, then at least call it what it is - a *stack*, not a queue. The two data-types are distinctly different, and using the wrong name is just misleading, and, as I've said, leads to confusion.

Re the queue/stack: I hate this part. So playing anything adding automatically to the queue/stack? And I can't add albums to the queue without clearing it? Can I clear it without adding to it? From what I read on other threads, I'm supposed to use a blank playlist to clear it, but that doesn't work on the Android player.

 

I'm switching from Rhapsody so I can use my external SD card for offline (which works great, screw you Rhapsody) and this is one of the most frustrating features. I like to make a big cue from albums and then shuffle it.

This really, really annoys me. If im listening to a song and queue a few more songs from that album, then move on to other albums to create a longer queue I don't want to have the artists all mixed up! It's jarring and irks me every single time. Surely everyone clicks the song they want to hear most - first? Give us a proper queue please.

When you come from Windows/OS X/Linux  to Android/iOS the experience should be equal, but it's not. I can't listen to music like I do on my desktop computer,  because the same functions/alternatives aren't there!

 

I have to admitt I was dissapointed of the Android app. And I can't control the syncronisation/download. When I connect so that it is online it starts to download a tons of music that I don't have space for. I need that for other things! But I still want to be able to stream from Spotify servers.

 

Also, when I want to listen to music I have to go through hundreds of songs that are not available (I haven't been able to make more than 7 % offline). So listen to music on Spotify Android app is not ideal...

Should be better queue options and an alternative to hide unavailable/not downloaded songs.

Spotify needs a queue for its mobile apps.  Everything else is awesome.

I switched from Google Play Music (which has great in-app playlist control where you can slide away tracks and drag a left handle to re-order them) to Spotify.

 

No slide to delete. A long-press for every **** song.

No re-arrangement.

Songs aren't added to the end, they're added right after the current one.

 

How do I even "Album 1 then Album 2" without screwing up the order?

Even if I add Album 2 first, Album 1 will be wedged right inside of Album 2.
