13. [iOS][Other] Add an app widget for iOS 14

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


You can check each thread for more info or a workaround that can help you out. And if anyone reading this hasn't voted already - go ahead! The more votes, the higher the chance an idea will be considered for implementation.


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. If you've got a good idea, you can submit it here.







At a collaborative playlist it would be great to have the option to select who can add songs to it. This playlist can be see and use for everyone but only the one that has create it can give access to people to add songs to it


What about bringing back lyrics? It's been a "good idea, vote for it" for a year now.


You mentioned “see all songs on artist page” twice: as “implemented” and “not right now”. As I can see that feature is still not implemented, so there is a mistake in “implemented” section. 


Hey @SergioPono

Thanks for the heads-up! This has now been edited 🙂

I think it would be cool if you could drop a pin into a song as a marker to jump to so people sharing songs could show a specific part. It would also make posting to social media from where you want/prefer way easier. Also there are songs I only like one verse by one artist and if you could jump to the marker automatically would be awesome too. This would lead into mixing songs by linking markers very easy too.


I love this article

Music Fan Gå gärna in och följ mig på Spotify och lyssna gärna på mina låtar och här har du länken så att du kan se mina senaste låtar 


We want 2FA! How long has that "idea" been around? 5 years? And under consideration since 2018? Come on... You store our credit card info but you can't offer modern security?

There are great ideas on this board already.  Take them into consideration, or lose the fanbase that respects you the most you filthy capitalists.


O que aconteceu com spotify TV não aparece mais as capas dos artistas uma do lado da outro voltem por favor era tão legal dava pra saber qual cantor iria rodar na próxima música


                                        screen-2.jpg                                         Minha pergunta ou problema


Olá, gostaria de enviar feedback sobre o redesenho da tela 'Reproduzindo Agora' no aplicativo sportify TV, que foi atualizado em algum momento na semana passada.

Anteriormente, o aplicativo exibia uma tela minimalista que mostrava uma versão quase em tela inteira da capa do álbum para a música que estava tocando, sobre um fundo gradiente (com base nas cores da capa do álbum). Em cada lado da capa do álbum principal havia capas de álbum menores para as 2 músicas que acabaram de tocar (à esquerda) e as próximas 2 músicas da fila (à direita).

O nome do artista e o título da música estavam abaixo da capa do álbum principal, juntamente com os controles (reproduzir, pausar, linha do tempo, etc.).

Era um design simples e elegante. Os gradientes em mudança eram incrivelmente bonitos, assim como a versão 'carrossel' de mostrar a fila. Um exemplo de imagem está anexado.

Agora, o fundo parece ter sido substituído por uma versão muito granulada e muito escura de uma foto do artista (às vezes você nem consegue saber o que é a foto, porque é uma versão escurecida de uma foto que estava escura para começar !) que é visualmente desagradável. A capa do álbum permanece, mas foi reduzida para cerca de 25% do tamanho anterior e foi relegada para o canto esquerdo inferior. As capas dos álbuns são projetadas para serem visualmente atraentes, portanto, devem ter o máximo destaque. Olhar para os dentes ruins de um cantor não é uma substituição justificável.

As informações sobre as próximas músicas foram retiradas, exceto por alguns segundos no final da música atual por meio de uma pequena caixa no canto superior direito, que exibe informações sobre uma única música.

Este novo design tira o apelo visual e * remove * informações úteis da IU.

Se houvesse a opção de alternar entre esta nova visualização e a anterior (a bela)



Bring back the option to change cache files directory from C to another drive. Or add option to change installation directory instead disk C to another drive.


I use IOS Spotify on mobile- and I do not use Spotify premium, and whenever I listen to my playlist my oldest added songs show first rather than my recently added songs and this is really fustrating, can u add a feature where my recently added songs show first on my playlist on IOS Mobile, cuz this feature is on my laptop but NOT my phone 


Thanks a lot


Please consider other options for organizing user's albums by grouping them, such as "Album Collections" which is currently highly voted but still not considered.


Just want to give a shout out to a new podcast. I don't see anyway to rate it with Spotify.....  The Anti-Racism Daily Podcast with Nicole Cardoza.  It offers concise information on todays issues followed by real 'action items!' A true masterpiece!


The volume control in the Spotify GUI is separate from the (Spotify-specific) one in the Windows mixer; if either one is turned down, the effective volume for Spotify will be low, while all other programs will be at full volume. It would be great if instead of Spotify doing its own mixing, it synced its volume control with the one assigned to it by Windows.


Can we have a choice to toggle between Romanji lyrics and Kanji lyrics for Japanese songs? As a non-japanese I would love to sing along however its troublesome to online to search for the Romanji lyrics of the song I'm listening to. 
Or maybe add a feature where we can edit the lyrics in? Like how we can add our own songs imported from local files.


Hi I'm a Spotify artist, I have a few suggestions on how to pay artists more.

I think the 10 dollar monthly subscription should be for access to the library of music on Spotify; music at least 6 months old. Music newer than 6 months should be supported more meaningfully. I suggest an activator button on new and newer albums, an in-app support of as little as one dollar that goes directly to the artist. New albums could be available to stream on day of or week of release as a preview, then the listener would need to hit that activator button to continue streaming during the 6 month new album period. 


Hey a great thing to add to Spotify would be checking who has liked your playlists. This seems like a very small task and would be very easy to implement. Take your time though its not as important as the others ones.
