December 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. Explicit Filter

It's now possible to use the Explicit content filter on mobile and tablet devices (more devices coming soon!). Right now, the setting is only for the individual account and device. If you do apply the setting on your phone, it doesn't filter explicit content for the same account on the desktop app.


2. Your Top Songs 2018 Playlist

3. Scrobble to with Spotify Connect



4. Find similar Playlists to your own Playlist

We're keeping this as a 'Good Idea' for now. Please know your feedback is reaching the internal teams at Spotify, and they're aware of the votes around this idea. We'll continue to check out the comments here too.


Just as a heads up, be sure to check out the 'Create Similar Playlist' option on the Desktop and Mobile apps. You can find it by clicking the three dots on most playlists.




5.  Parental Controls

Thanks for adding your feeback about bringing parental controls to Spotify. We also think it's a great idea and we're looking into it further. We've changed this idea to 'Under Consideration' and soon as we have any further updates we'll keep you posted. 







6. Siri Integration


We typically don't announce integrations with third parties in advance. The best place to keep an eye on is our blog for news updates about any such partnerships.


7. Master Quality Authenticated Lossless Streaming (MQA)

8. Play multiple Amazon Echo Speakers at the same Time

9. Siri Shortcut Support


We thrive on Ideas


We're actively bringing your comments and feedback to the teams here so they know which features are important to you.

I tend to listen to music as full albums, rather than individual songs or playlists. (This is the most sensible way to listen to most classical music and jazz.) It would be great to be able to bookmark my place in any particular album so that I can return to that spot after going to listen to something else on Spotify.

What happened to the radio stations on phones (at least android for me)? I updated the other day and now the radio stations are no longer radio stations. 


For instance, I click on a "radio" station I want to listen to at the moment and it takes me to a playlist I can download, but I can not like or dislike songs or anything like the radio stations on a computer.


Quisiera que se eliminara las canciones recomendadas de cantantes que no sigo, y solo se merecomiende canciones y albumes nuevos de cantantes que si sigo. 

que se me elimine los Daily Mix. y solo se pueda poner a traves de una opcion


Yo estoy pagando un premiun, no quiero publicida camuflada, ni escuchar lo que no me gusta. Si alguien tiene la misma situacion por favor comentar.

How about fixing the problems with Samsung watches.  Everytime you deny or end a phone call on your phone or watch, spotify opens and begins playing through the watch speaker.  Very inconvenient and disrupting.  Been an issue for months



It would be nice if you could shuffle all songs by artists you follow, not create a playlist, just listen to all followed.

Hi Tom,


Since 2015, Android users have been requesting Swipe to Queue, an elementary feature that has been native to the iOS experience since launch. It remains listed as "Not Right Now". With thousands of likes on the original post, and follow up posts asking for the same thing, what further justification does Spotify need for their Android users, with 100 Million+ downloads from the Play Store? Thanks.
