August 2018 Ideas Review 

Every month the Community Team reviews our Ideas Board. In this blog we'll present some of the ones we’ve updated in the past month!


Want to know what's been going on in the Ideas Board in the last 30 days? Let's take a look...


1. [Playlists] Statistics and Analytics for Playlists


Right now, we don't have plans to make statistics like this available so we're keeping this as 'Not Right Now'.

We'll continue to pass your feedback on to teams here, and will keep you posted if we have any updates.


2. [Playlists] Sort by Release Date


3. [Playlists] Merge / Add a Playlist to another Playlist


4. [Your Music] Add LOCAL FILES to Your Music

5. [Playlists] Smart Playlists


Good idea, vote for it:


 6. [Connect] Doesn’t automatically sync what I am playing across devices

7. [Discover Weekly] View previous Discover Weekly Playlists

8. [Playlists] Only selected Playlist Authors for Collaborative Playlist


While we don't have plans to introduce 'Only selected Playlist Authors for a Collaborative Playlist' right now, we're marking this as a 'Good Idea'.


Please know your feedback is reaching the internal teams at Spotify, and they're aware of the votes around this idea.

apparently rumors are going around that the Record Labels are paying Spotify to keep stat #s low on non main stream artists. Is this true??


Need a NEW roku idea. Tired of not being able to play this wonderful app on my roku TV without having to buy extra hardware (Chromecast). I'm not doing it, I won't give in. Let me know if you need ideas or suggestions about this. As an avid user of the app, I'd love to get this collab back in business.


And what about block followers? It's been years in a promess of resolution. To block followers is a simple thing in EVERY app that has a kind of social relationship. It's absurd that Spotify doesn't implemented this yet.


It would be awesome if we were able to mark tracks on the podcasts as "played" so we are aware of the ones we've listened to. At the moment as soon as I finish listening to one and it moves onto the next one, if I've already listened to that already, it resets the played time back to the start. It gets very frustrating to keep track of things I've listened to. Plex has this down packed, something similar would be fantastic.


Hey.  How about putting lyrics back.  Your competitors have it, why don't you?  Premium accounts should have it.  Disappointed that it doesn't.

Either release a new Roku app, or bring back the previous version.
