Monthly 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!


We're a tad late this month, but let's take a look at what's changed recently..



1.  Return repeat and queue buttons to Now Playing View

The Repeat and Queue buttons have returned to the Now Playing View on the mobile app. The repeat button has moved to the left and you Queue can be found just below. 


2. Mark Podcasts as Played

3. Modifiable Hearts/Dislikes



4. Spotify in Serbia

Spotify is launching regularly in countries around the world. Please keep an eye on the Spotify blog or signup here to be first to hear if we reach Serbia.

5. Spotify in Croatia 



6. Landscape mode on iPhone


We're keeping this idea to 'Not Right Now', as this isn't something we have any immediate plans to implement.


7.  Friends Feed on Mobile

Casual Listener

Have been using Spotify Premium for ages, but starting to really dislike the service. Spotify removes so many songs it's ridiculous. And now you removed one of my favourite songs... Work me slow by The Grizzled Mighty. Probably going to quit the service. I know there's a form to request songs. Used it a lot, but no song has become available again, just a waste of afford.

Spotify needs a way for artists to submit their music to playlists directly. Playlist owners who make their playlists public should have the ability to toggle on/off "Accept Submissions." Artists can then submit directly to submission enabled public playlists. Perhaps this could be a premium feature; I would upgrade for that.
spotify needs to add a last song feature where you can select a song in the queue or the current song as the ‘last song’ so you can listen to the rest of that song, say, before bed and you don’t have to search it up individually to listen to the song as the last song without pausing it or whatnot

Hey Guys and Gals,


Long time spotify user and supporter here, I have made roughly 100 playlists through my music timeline with spotify as my main source for listening, here are my feedback ideas:

  1. Allow more in-depth playlist modifications
    1. Right-clicking a playlist should allow:
      1. Merging playlists
      2. Removing duplicates from a playlist
      3. Remix Playlists (similar tracks but none of the current ones)

My reasoning for this idea is that alot of people probably struggle and accidently add duplicates, merge playlists or want similar tracks but do not want to spend time building out a playlist or relying on discover weekly as it is usually genre specific.


I have some other ideas but that should do for now, let me know if you think this would be worth the development, ux, and implementation time and ROI investment.

I know this is the wrong place to ask this but I signed up for the community board and am unable to find any link on the website for posting my first question.  Can somebody tell me how we can post a question please?


Hi I'm from Indonesia

I'm very satisfied and like to recommend this apps to friend's and collage. Because this use small amount of storage and data. Just play and go. But, will be great again to add

  • Swipe to foward or backward playlist
  • Play similar playlist/songs when playlist or songs done.
  • Shuffle playlist
  • Custom equaliser

best regards,



Greetings SPOTIFY, I love your music service however I was really hoping that you would add an 80’s band that is not among your music selections. The band is, “Stabilizers” and here they are on YouTube below please! I am wanting you to get the songs “One Simple Thing” and “You Pull Me Down” please! The whole album would be better!


Thank you!

Dear Spotify,

I am currently a United States Navy service member and music is thoroughly used througout my day, especially when we're out at sea. It's very possible for us to be out at sea for up to 30-100 days without wifi/phone service. I know a lot of people that use spotify in the military but switch to Apple music once they find out about the "30 day expiration". Spotify is the best music app out there with way more to offer than other apps. Our idea is to have a seperate "Deployment plan" that gets rid of the 30 day expiration period, maybe a "military exclusive" plan so military days become extended, or extend everyones (military/civilian) 30 day expiration.

Thank you for your time,



how do i delete a comment 😄

Come ooooon! We want HiFi!

I see you forgot the Old UI post despite it peaking at #2 on top ideas and getting more than 1,000 votes.

Dear Spotify Office/Management,
Please see the following link for context on what I’m about to say:
I wish to complain on behalf of the MANY subscribing listeners about the new UI your developers have formed. It has ripped the heart out of what it means to be able to listen to artists we like or discover new artists because the UI no longer has the ‘Artist’ category. Instead, all downloaded songs are treated as ‘liked’ songs on one giant playlist which we would then have to separate, or simply by ‘album’.
At one point everything randomly wiped itself from my device at once and I had to leave it by my WiFi for hours to recover all those ‘liked’ songs but that’s probably just me.
Why is it that developers feel the need to change something just for change-something-sake!? There is no logical reason for taking the artist category away. Do you not think like music fans yourselves anymore?? Since when did you conclude that nobody wants to listen to songs by one artist at a time but prefers having to rifle through a whole albums list to find only one album??? It’s not good enough for paying subscribers who expected the earlier interface they are likely to have had before updating.
Complaint after complaint has clearly fallen on deaf ears and Spotify do not appear to be in tune anymore with what listeners want (no pun intended). Believe me, many like me are this close👌🏻to ditching subscription to you in favour of competitors.
I implore your developers to bring back the Artist category in an updated UI and/or at least explain in simple terms to me and others here how you thought removing this was such a great idea in the first place.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Many thanks.
Kind regards,
David + Other Spotify subscribers.

Bring back the song list and artist tab. You keep telling me all my saved songs go into a playlist called "liked songs". This is not the case since i have over 2000 saved and only 28 in the Liked playlist. Even if i unlike and relike something, it still wont show up there.


Quiero recomendarles algo para mejorar la app ya que para muchos ya tiene un diseño obsoleto 


- Tema blanco pero que esto sea a desición personal , es decir un interruptor 


- Que todas las canciones tengan su letra disponible y canciones en ingles haga la traducción y también la letra en modo offline así como en Apple música pero mejor 😉 


- Modo fiesta que para que vallas cantando de acuerdo a la canción 


- Agregar canciones locales desde un dispositivo móvil


Espero respuesta y espero que sí agreguen mis recomendaciones yo quiero con todo cariño que Spotify siga con millones de usuarios activos

Antes fui suscriptor de Apple Music, lo que me hace quedarme con ustedes es su ecualizador, soy usuario de iOs y me ha encantado.

Pero les quería sugerir que desde la app móvil, se pueda cambiar la imagen de una playlist, así como editar su descripción, no entiendo porqué no está habilitada. 


Otra cosa es que al estar en una playlist, que se puedan descargar canciones seleccionadas y no toda la playlist. 


Me encanta su plataforma, sigan así. 




Spotify connect option disappeared from my paid account. Updated & reinstalled Spotify, but no Spotify connect option.


Now listening through Chromecast built in.



Please let me know how to get back Spotify connect option


Dear Spotify,


Please let us know when we can expect to have hi-res music files. I heard tidal stream hi res music.




Please introduce a way to organize playlists by either manually editing their order or preferably by name.
