August 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 August. Curious what we implemented last year? Well check out our Yearly Ideas Review: 2016 here. 

 

IMPLEMENTED:

1. Spotify XBOX One App

In August we implemented the Community's #2 request: XBOX One support. Spotify is now available on Xbox One in 34 markets* around the world. The new integration means that millions of Xbox One gamers can now choose the perfect music from Spotify to provide a fresh soundtrack for every gaming session.

5. All Offline Tracks in Main Menu

 

6. Fullscreen Artwork

 

7. Desktop Full screen playback info and visuals

1. bring back instant messaging

2. allow to users to edit some album data (and you should supervise them with the community)

3. introduce some kind of tagging (visible or non visible) an example: if I want to listen a spotify radio based on the Saving Private Ryan (composer: John Williams) soundtrack maybe I want to listen more soundtracks about war topic not about anything else (where the only common point is John Williams and other similar composers)
Other example:  if I want to listen a spotify radio based on 'Hurt' by Johnny Cash maybe I want to listen more cover songs and not country/blues/americana by John Campbell and Dolly Parton.

I'd really like a "folder feature" where I can sort my playlists into categories, e.g. "party", "workout", "studying" etc!

It will  be good to have a notification sent out when your actor or artist releases a new album or new song on Spotify.

 Things I do not like about spotify:
- Unable to see who follows my playlists
- What good playlist of users are hard to find. They are only visible
   those of spotify.
- Not being able to see the lyrics of the songs as before with musixmatch.
- Not being able to share songs that you like on your wall, only in playlists.

I think Spotify should care about making available the original versions of songs. I am making a list of songs from the 80's and some songs are not the original ones, many of them being cut or remixed. Honestly it ruins my experience, because it's hard to believe that a platform like Spotify could not have different versions of a song, specially the original one that made/makes a huge success on the media.

Concerning wrapped 2017, I would like to be able to view wolrdwide statistics. What is the worldwide average number of artists a spotify user listens to in a year? National?  On average, how many different music genres does the average spotify user listen to in a year?  How many different songs? Are these data dets avaiable somewhere?

Guys! You seriously need to implement an option to remove videos and songs from the playlist. I am not talking about self-made playlists like ones like RapCaviar. I know you guys curate the best musics but not evey artists is liked by us right? So you should give users their option.

Anyone else really want a good quality Spotify Visualizer? Casting a visualizer to PS4 or TV would look nice at party etc

Could a form of user page personalisation be implemented?

Wondering if there are currently analytics/algorithm included when ranking favorites by whether or not the volume was turned up or down during play? If not, has this been brought up before or is that a possibility?

i find that the ads are louder than the music. I don't know if there is a way to change this on the free accounts, but its kind of a nuiscance.

1. I would like to see my history on my phone. So I can look back and see what i've been listening to

2. I think it would be a great idea that if i am listening to a playlist or an album and i click on a song outside said album/playlist that the app then asks me if i want to continue listening to the playlist or not

3. Brining the touch preview back!!
