this is all well and good, but when is blocking users finally going to be prioritized? it's absolutely baffling to believe that this basic social media function has been tabled for almost three years now, meanwhile we've been begging for -- again -- a BASIC function for nearly a decade. this isn't just a small thing to ignore, and I refuse to believe it's so difficult to implement that it's taken this long just to figure out how to make it happen & roll it out.

 

this is a matter of user safety, as can be well enough seen in the hundreds of comments on the idea submission page (which has received over 12k votes since being submitted in 2013, and last saw any sort of status update in 2018. I mean, seriously, it's being treated as some fun addition to consider rather than what it actually is). there isn't any reason that this feature has been missing since making it possible to follow other users, and it's flat-out disgraceful that it's been put on the backburner for so long. truly unconscionable.

SIMPLE THINGS WILL MAKE SPOTIFY EXPERIENCE (ANDROID) WHOLEEE LOT BETTER

 

- SWIPE SONG TO ADD TO QUEUE.

- SWIPE DOWN ON PLAYLISTS FOR SEARCH SONG BAR.

-SWIPE UP/DOWN ON PLAYER TO OPEN/HIDE.

 

ALL THIS IDEAS ARE SIMPLE SWIPE COMMAND AND FEATURES F**KI*G APPLE IOS HAVE AND ANDROID USERS DONT!

 

JUST ASKING FOR THE SAME FEATURES IOS ALREADY HAVE ON ANDROID, NOT A BIG DEAL!

Want an idea?

Bring back the liked songs by artist. Why did you even remove that????? It sucks

Hello Guys,

One thing that might be worth considering - provide users with the ability to customize their Spotify look and feel (especially for the Desktop version). I see that it has been recently updated, but some of the UX is not as good as it was in the previous version.

After all, design, coloring, styling, all of those are mostly up to personal taste and habits, so I think this should be included as a potential idea - customizing Spotify UX per profile/device.

Shoot me an email if you need any additional details, feedback or whatever helps making this possible.

Much appreciated,

Hristo

Please give us back the ability to view an artists discography page by song?

It was taken away on this last update to desktop and it seriously hinders the time spent switching songs while I am working on things. It was such a great feature, now I just have to click through albums trying to find the song I want to hear. I do like the look of the new layout though. Maybe you can have it show songs inside Artist/Discography/Albums or put another page inside that displays all songs.

Just some suggestions, please add some which way to look at all songs again, I hope I am not the only one that feels this way.

Would be fantastic if spotify develops a "Guess the lyrics" or "Guess the song from lyrics" or "Guess the song from the music" etc. for different music genres. Best if it has a party mode

image.pngWho the **bleep** thought it would be nice if we just make the Cover as small as possible and take the back panel picture as background. Please let me switch to the old design or adjust it or whatever but I cant live with such**bleep**.

The title bar in the new UX is massive compared to the older version. 'Liked Songs' now takes up a quarter of the page header. This is ugly and unnecessary, the older version felt far more compacted. 

 

The new UX looks like it was designed for children, massive text everywhere as if we can't see/read.

 

Bring back Artist column and be able to remove album artwork beside songs. It needs to feel far more compact than it currently does. I've reverted to the older version for now.

Please let us block songs and let this be cross platform

Pls bring back the old version.. for me at least. i don't like the new looks. it looks too simple and it takes away the premium appearance when im on spotify. i love the idea of trying to make the app simpler for people with lower-end device, but when the app doesnt look as good and overall feels like a worse version as previous, nah..

Please fix the recently added function for playlists on the new desktop UI. Many of my playlists are out of order because of the latest update.

 

When 'recently added' is implemented, the order of entire albums that were added to a playlists are now descending from the end of the album to the beginning. Previously it didn't do that, it had the album descend from the top of the tracklist to the bottom. This function is working correctly on mobile, but not with the new desktop UI. Please fix it ASAP.  Thanks

Please show all artists and albums with any liked songs. It was long time ago why did you remove that? You always say that you want to make spotify useful and you care but it seems you don't. Present way makes those two tabs comepletly useless

PLEASE LET ALL THE ALBUM TRACKLISTS BE SHOWN ON THE ARTIST PAGE THATS ALL I ASK OF YOU take anything else away from me just bring that back. also having genius lyrics on desktop would be nice too

Make the search field global. In the new design you have to go to the search "tab" to search. Search should be a first-class UI element and always easily available. Put it in the header and make it available no matter what screen is visible.

Heres a freebee for you; Alot of people find new music from user created playlists or genre searches, enable us to sort a list by "popularity" or play-count. Easier that way to find new music youre more likely to like.

I mean, are we really surprised that the features we want/want added back aren't making it in? Come on. Like, blocking users? We've only been asking for that for something like a freaking DECADE.
