I would love to have more optional social interactions on Spotify. The anonymity is still quit big. For example you can't see who follows your playlist etc. Would love to have more interaction with (new)friends based on sharing music and playlist like a group chat. A  interactive platform bases around (sharing)music.


We need offline listening on Apple Watch. More than 9.200 requests, no answer from Spotify. "We are listening..." Just kidding not really. We just care about podcasts now. Get working on it Spotify.
