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.

6. Fullscreen Artwork

 Can you please make it so that we can see who follows our own public playlists? I can only see the number of people who follow me. It would make social interaction much greater if we could see who follows our playlists.

Actually its not a question, but more-alike a suggestion, what if Shazam integrated as a service (sure as a free) with Spotify or trying out similar engine to search for audio source based on samples taken :D

I think that you should consider giving high schooler the student discount also! I know tons of people would use it. And what if people aren't going to college right when they turn 18 but they are going into the military and can't go to college right away shouldn't they get a discount also?

I got an idea which I've envisioned as a kid. This Idea is revolutionary and have gotten distinctions on my assignment in entreprenuial innovation subject. Had trouble getting in touch with you'll and have tried numerous ways, this is one of them. I think we can bring massive change the music app industry. Just get in touch with me and hear me out. That's all.

TOUCH PREVIEW PLEASE. Please bring it back, I have no desire to even attempt to sort through new music now, I found so much great music through touch preview that I would've never found otherwise.

I have many many playlists with many tracks in each one. Often I can't remember which playlist I put a song in.  I would like to be able to search for songs across all my playlists.

 

Does anyone know how to do this?

I would really like a way to disable the Genius lyric facts but KEEP THE ACTUAL LYRICS. If I'm learning the lyrics to a rap song you don't see more than half the lyrics. Same goes for any music genre really.

It would be fun to be able to "rename" songs within My Music or a playlist, with the new title denoted in some way (different color font maybe?). You could use it for organizing (rename a song in a wedding playlist to "Processional" or "Recessional") or just for fun (rename "24K Magic" to "TURNUP IN THE DORM").

 

Note: this would not change the actual name of the song file-wise; there would be some way to show the actual name, like if you right-click on it or something.

Hopefully this idea is simple enough to actually implement. I really like the folders feature but I find myself with many different playlists and it becomes a lot to navigate through. What I'm suggesting is a way to create a custom filter within a playlist: to either play certain songs you've selected or omit certain songs you've selected.

Thanks a lot for sharing this status, this a great way to include the users into the development process. It is your right and duty to take decisions what to do and what not. If you would share your reasoning for a NO decision, those who liked it could even be more understanding.
