I'm considering discontinuing my premium subscription if all my playlists are just full of these now without an option to not play vids.

I'll just pay for YT Red if my playlists have videos. Better selection if I'm just gonna be annoyed anyways.

My problem is the Audio quality suffers greatly.

 

The main reason I pay for spotify is to play The HQ audio.

This is poorly conceived.

 

1. I wonder how much more data you're wasting to send me unsolicited content.

2. I can't turn it off, or opt-out of this "experience".

3. The experience is only on mobile, a 5 inch screen.  As compared to a desktop implementation, which makes at least some practical sense.

4. I'm not watching TV.  I'm listenting to music.  Why are you introducting a visual element to this experience?
5. Seriously.... How much more of my mobile data plan are you burning through for this nonsense???

I would really like an option to turn off videos when listening to a playlist. I find it quite annoying when I notice a video playing. Lot of the times the video is about an artist describing their work, which I really don't care much to listen to. I more interested in just listening to music. Please Spotify add an option to not play videos in playlists. Thanks.

Wow. 

 

Spotify, you better add a *don't show me any video's* option real soon because this is just dumb. Like all other say, if I wanted to play video's, random video's I might add, I'd go to youtube or something. 


How annoying. Why would I pay for this?!

Completely agree with sentiments here, the videos in Spotify paylists such as Rock This is a terrible idea. I don't use Spotify to watch music videos. I use it to LISTEN to music. I could care less about a music video.

 

Add an option to skip these videos or I'll be switching to another service. Premium user here.

It would be a lot better if the videos ACTUALLY PLAYED. I pay for premium and I'm using the service in the same country I am paying for it and i always get the message 'Video Unavailable. We're not able to play this video in your current location.' This totally breaks up my work-flow and is distracting and annoying. Not only does it not play but I have to click away the pop up alert telling me it won't play. The video should at least auto-continue to the next playable song and not require intervention. It's a PLAYLIST after all. It's meant to be played without active management. 

Stop this experiment if you're not going to do it correctly. 

I am in the UK and my subscription is based there as well. I pay for premium. If these videos only play in the US don't test it outside of the US. C'mon!

Funny you think that...I don’t have that issue with Apple Music or Pandora’s new plus service. I’m not sure where you are getting your information.
