We thrive on Ideas

Bring back the old functionality for desktop! 


First, the good stuff in your new desktop version.  The "Liked Songs" section is great.  Home, Search, and Your Library are a better organization than that of the previous version.


However, ...

Your update seems to be harder to navigate in one aspect than the previous version.  The previous version had tabs at the top of the window of an artist's homepage, i.e. Overview, Fans Also Like, and About.  It is easier to go to one of those three topics than scrolling through the entire page of an artist's page to arrive at that topic.




There has been a request to bring back the dislike button to Spotify since 2019. It's had more than 3000 votes for months and has been marked a "good idea" for at least a year and yet despite regular comments on the idea and likes for the idea it has been ignored. It doesn't even show up on the popular ideas part of the forum despite being within the top 3 in terms of votes. There are ideas with 200 or less votes on that page and yet this is not. Spotify really doesn't listen to users and people should start leaving if they want Spotify to care about user feedback. Bring back the dislike button.
