[iOS][Other] Stop taking away features. Simpler is not always better for serious music listeners.

The new update is awful. The artists tab should include saved artists, not just those we follow. The albums tab should show albums that just have a few songs saved again. And the recently played should be more prominent. Give us the option to view the whole album art on screen and only that. Stop removing features!

 

The more complicated options we have as users to organize and view our library, the better. I signed up for spotify because it felt designed for people who are serious about listening to and organizing music. The most recent update, along with smaller changes over the last year, are ruining the experience.

 

PLEASE undo the changes to this last update, particularly how artists and albums are grouped. I have never considered Apple Music previously but I am looking into it after this. There are so many benefits to Spotify but it feels like they are slowly being lost to dumb “silicon valley” type trends in app design. 

 

Feels like Spotify is waging a war on the idea of keeping a music library at all. Please stop.

I completely agree. I understand why some people would want it this way, but I personally HATE this new update. All I ask is that we get the OPTION to display songs/albums/artists the way we want... Why not make it a preference? I agree, stop taking away features and start ADDING them. I like updates, but not at the cost of features I actually like and use. When I save an entire album, I want all of the songs from that album to show up in the "songs" section. I don't want to have to save an album twice for it to appear in both places. This is a really frustrating and annoying update, because I recently saved a bunch of albums thinking that they were going into my songs as well, but they weren't.
