Hey everyone. Spotify here.
We are currently in the process of deprecating the Inbox/Messages feature within the Spotify app.
Extensive data analysis has shown that this feature has very low engagement. The huge disparity between the use of the feature and the manpower required to maintain it doesn’t merit keeping it running, so we've taken the difficult decision to remove it.
In turn, this will allow us to focus our efforts on improving the features we know you do use a lot, as well as work on exciting integrations with all the awesome third-party messaging apps out there.
It’s still very easy to share and chat about music from Spotify. You can check out this support article to discover other ways for getting social.
We’re always trying out innovative ways to use the app, so stay tuned for new sharing features in the future.
If you’re interested to learn more about how the Spotify app evolves, have a look at our article about testing and why features change.
Lastly, we would love it if you could share your feedback about how you share Spotify music with your friends right now, and what social integrations you’d like to see added to the Spotify app, in this thread.
Thanks in advance for bringing your feedback to the Community.
