March 2017 Ideas Review


Every month the Community Team reviews our Ideas Board and present the ones we’ve updated in the past 31 days.

 

We're here to take a look at the ideas we updated for you all in March. Curious what we implemented last year? Well check out our Yearly Ideas Review: 2016 here. 

 

IMPLEMENTED:

 

1. Option to Disable 'Behind the Lyrics'.

GOOD IDEA:

3. Bring back "Year in Music" on demand.

 

4. Sleep Timer.

 

5. [Amazon Echo] Alexa controls via Spotify Connect.

NOT RIGHT NOW

11. Allow recommedations to be removed from Discover.

 

12. Rearrange playlists on the mobile app

CASE CLOSED: 

 

24. Spotify Connect for Windows Phone.

 

25. Add Local Files Syncing to Windows Phone App.

 

26. Windows Phone - Support for Cortana.

 

27. Last.fm Scrobbling for Windows Phone.

 

28. Spotify Connect for Windows Phone.

 

Spotify for Windows Phone has been placed into maintenance mode. Thus, we will only be making critical security updates to the current Spotify app and not releasing any new features nor improving support for old devices going forward. Users can continue to use Spotify on previously supported Windows Phones and Spotify will remain on the Windows Store.

 

We will continue to work closely with Microsoft to ensure the best experience on Windows platforms and are constantly evaluating the most effective path going forward.

Easy Walk Gospel Band is played by quite a few folks from Norway and Dallas Tx. Y'all seem to like the same gospel music style. What makes Easy Walk Gospel Band appeal to these two very different regions?

I dont like the new version of the web player!

I miss the artist radio stations.

And I really miss being able to add songs to the play queue.

just pull the broken beyond repair windows phone app from the store. 

"maintenance mode" ROFL

 

"We will continue to work closely with Microsoft to ensure the best experience on Windows platforms and are constantly evaluating the most effective path going forward." Double ROFL.

 

The app is broken since the release of windows 10. 

the new creators update won't make the situation better.
