Give us the choice to remove recently played. There was no reason t remove it and its an excellent feature 

 

Like if you agree

Spotify got publically shamed by someone with enough clout to get the block function filed "under consideration"? Finally!

No update on bringing back the artist column despite the idea having over one thousand votes…

Aand...swipe to queue still isn’t planned to be implemented on android!

The obvious negligence for Android users is astounding, QoL changes matter to many of us.

It's been an honor being a beta tester for quite a while, always hoping for this feature to be finally implemented.

— IDEA, ALL PLATFORMS—

It would be great that the spotify advertisements don't show up songs that you may not like, would be great like get a song from the current playlist and play a part of the song.

Everyone wants personal usage statistics and there doesn't seem to be a reason for Spotify to give it a hard no..... why is it Case Closed?

Please fix your queue system when rolling out HIFI. Even just include a play now, play next and play later. Competitor queuing up system is way better than Spotify IMO.
