Ideas Review


Hey Folks!

 

Sorry for the silence over the past couple with the Ideas Review - we've had a busy few months having our annual Rock Star Jam where we flew out our top Community Rock Stars to check out the office in New York. 

 

Interested in what it takes to be a Rock Star? Just click here.

 

Now let's check out the latest updates...

 

IMPLEMENTED:

1. Android Widget

We’re excited to let you know the Android Widget is back. To get listening, make sure you’re on the latest version of the app and Spotify will show in the widget menu on your device.

 

The widget is now resizable and some stability issues have been fixed. 

 

2. Screen always on Option when driving

3. Compatibility with Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music

4. Folders for playlists in the Web Player

5. Share Spotify on Snapchat

6 . Adding indivdual Podcasts to Playlists

 

GOOD IDEA:

7. Friendship Playlists

 

Thanks for adding your vote to this idea. We're marking this as a 'Good Idea'!

 

As a heads up, Family Mix is available to users on the Premium Family. It's a playlist that combines the music you and other members on your plan listen to. 

 

8. Voice Control

9. Bring Back Mobile Playlist Sorting/Searching

10. Music Videos

 

CASE CLOSED:

11. Remove specific Artists from Discover Page

 

Whilst it's not possible to remove an artist directly from your Home page, there are several ways to give feedback to the app that you don't like certain Songs or Artists. 

 

- In your Discover Weekly, Release Radar and Daily Mix playlists you can click the 'Hide' button and select either 'Don't play this song' or 'Don't play this artist'.

 

- You can head direct to an Artist Page, click the three dots and select 'Don't Play This'.

 

12. Music sharing with people nearby

 

 

 

 

NOT RIGHT
NOW:

13. Alphabet scroll bar

 

The A-Z scroll bar is back on iOS, under the Artist tab on Your Library. 

 

We can see that there are users requesting this feature on Android too. We'll keep the status as 'Not Right Now', so you can keep adding your votes. 

 

14. Show own Cover Art of shared Playlist

15. View & Shuffle all Tracks in Playlist Folders

16. Remove individual track from saved album

17. Songs changes in OSX Notifications

18. Spotify for KaiOS

19. Support Crossfade on Spotify Connect

20. Personal Song Counter

21. Ability to search within all playlists

22. TV Shows & Movies

 

 

We thrive on Ideas

Buenas noches, 

Porque no implementan el poder enumerar las canciones dentro de una lista musical. 

Es decir, tengo mi lista y dentro 10 canciones,  a esas canciones deseo darle un orden especificado para que se escuche en ese orden. Algo así como cuando creadas tu lista en papel y uno mismo colocaba enumeraba las canciones en el orden que quería que sea grabado en un cassette o CD. De esta manera cuando compartes tu lista a otro usuario le puedes dar la opción de elegir este orden por defecto hecho por su creador. 

Cualquier duda estoy para apoyar.  

Gracias.

Adding Songs To Playlists - recent playlists are not at the top of the list

Stop messing with something that already works! The problem here is when you want to add a song to a playlist you've recently created it's not at the top of the list. Instead it's randomly placed among hundreds of playlists. So you have to scroll down for ages to find it. It's so infuriating, I'm considering moving to Napster.

Hi @ssanmiguelh,

 

You can order the songs in the playlist the way you want. Just choose order playlist in the playlist options  You can change the order by choosing edit playlist.

René

Hi @Deckard6,

 

Which platform are you using? I use android and I can sort playlists by different criteria like name or recently played. This order is applied also when you add a song to a playlist.

Buenas noches;

no me han entendido! eso que mencionan que se puede ordenar solo se hace por los titulos de la cabecera, pero no se puede enumerarlos y luego ordenar por esa numeracion.

por eso digo que debería crearse una nueva cebecera NUMERO_PISTA y esta columna debe ser editable por su creador y luego poder ordenarlo como el resto de columnas.  

Ejemplo:

* SE CREA ESTA LISTA ENUMERANDOLA COMO SU CREADOR DESEE.

NUMERO_PISTA   TITULO  

         5                      I Wouldn't Want To Be Like You

         1                       Hard times

         4                      Heartbreaker

         2                      Feeling blue

         3                      More than a woman

* LUEGO SE ORDENA POR EL CAMPO NUMERO_PISTA 

NUMERO_PISTA   TITULO  

         1                       Hard times

         2                      Feeling blue       

         3                      More than a woman

         4                      Heartbreaker

         5                      I Wouldn't Want To Be Like You

 

Informen si esto es posible. GRACIAS.

Hi @ssanmiguelh,

 

Do you mean the order of an album or playlist? You can change the order of the songs of a playlist.

APPLE TV, please.

Many people use apple devices and apple tv as central home music hub.

 

We need to CONNECT music to Apple TV. 

 

Too many years of waiting... :-)

Ive been using Spotify for around 10 years and your app has gone way down hill. Ads are many music is few. Premium is almost a must if you want to stream music. App crashes regularly due to ads. Crashes even more when I have my phone linked to my lap top. Thanks for selling out and ruining a good thing.

 

Update 10-2-2019: I re-installed Windows 10 and started over on my lap top. I re-installed spotify and to no avail I still have the same problem. Spotify plays 1 song maybe 1 and a half before it decides to freeze on the Ad. Here is an idea. Let's tell big advertising companies to cram it and let us listen to music for free. The car radio plays less commercials than spotify now thats sad. The company suffers losses every year yet the executives running the show take home Millions. No I will not pay for Ad free music so some other person can live the high life because they sold out to "big advertising company name here". Spotify thanks for selling out Pe@ce may you executives live forever.

Retomando mi consulta, entonces creería que esto de ordenar de forma personalizada no existe??

me refiero ordenar personalizadamente las listas creadas por uno mismo.

deberían tomarlo en cuenta.

Hi @ssanmiguelh,

 

You can order playlists, just choose edit and hold a song and drag it to the place you want. The order of the playlist should be set to custom.

 

If it is somebody else's playlist, you first can copy the playlist and then change the order.

 

Regards,

René

Where did the dislike button go? I like the daily mixes, but there are certain songs I don't want to hear. I used to be able to hit dislike, or not play the song anymore, OR not play the artist anymore. I no longer have those options. I read that there is a "hide" option, but I don't see that. I have this issue on the iPhone app and on the desktop app.

Please please please make it possible for Spotify users to see who follows their playlists! And/or other people’s playlists. As of now we can only see the number of followers on a playlist, but not who they are. This is a feature I have been dying for since I got the app, and I would really love to see it implemented.

Hi @Arleyn26, @macypage,

 

Can you please submit your question into one of the help forums? Otherwise this page will get a bit messy and no one knows which questions and answers are related.

 

Thanks,

René

Will spotify make use of the streaming API for WatchOS 6 so we can use spotify without being near an iphone?

Can we please bring back the option to remove songs from an album we save in our library? I really don't understand the idea/purpose/motivation behind restricting our listening opportunities like this. If we would like to listen to the whole album we would just save every individual song of it. However we are forced to go through songs we do not like (hence we would not save in our library if we had the chance) and even have to get my phone to skip the song. I really don't know why this changed as the option back then (when we could remove individual songs from an album we saved in our library) would work wonderfully. Can you at least explain the purpose behind this? I think bringing that option back would make the platform so much easier and entertaining to use again

Hi, i think spotify should have its own DJing software/app.. that would allow any DJ to easily select song from the catalog, and also musicians would easily get royalties when someone Djs their songs..

 

Make it compatible with every DJ Controller and watch your numer of users grow!

Hi @blasferrari,

 

Please submit a new idea in the idea section. Users can vote for your idea and the more votes, the more likely it will be implemented.
