What happened to the description of the history of a song

dmuller104
When I played songs on the spotify app on PS4 there would sometimes be a description of the history of the song (like when the song was written, where it placed on top song boards, etc...). I really liked it, it greatly added to the experience of the app. I haven't seen it in a while so I want to know what happened to it.

Hi @dmuller104, welcome to the Spotify Community!

We're sorry to hear that a feature you liked is no longer available for you. Spotify is always exploring new ways to deliver the best possible listening experience for our users. Sometimes, this means retiring certain features, like Behind the Lyrics, to make way for new innovations and features. We can confirm this feature isn't available anymore as it was replaced with our Lyrics feature which was a popular request among Spotify users. More info here.

We value your feedback and will make sure to pass it along to the right folks. 

If you ever need us again, the Community will be here for you. Have a great day!

Julian,

 

 I know many others who LOVED the Behind the Lyrics feature. Why retiring such a great feature? Spotify could easily allow both that feature and the new one (the Lyrics) to exist on the system in parallel. 

People may choose the feature they like, without compromising on the other group of people who like the second feature.
