Mac OS Mojave
Seems like Spotify keeps pushing this issue aside because not enough people are complaining about it. I've actually seen a good amount of posts on the community boards about it but none of them seem to have gained traction with the powers that be, claiming its a non-issue and the post gets closed. I disagree, wholeheartedly.
Please bring this option back! I don't use the web player... ever. And, I don't want to now have to start copying and pasting the link into spotify app. Call me lazy. The advanced settings used to have the option to have links open in the desktop app. But that option has recently disappeared. Seems like a very obvious and useful feature, and just strange to suddenly remove that functionality.
My friends and I are always trading spotify links via text and emails and it's incredibly frustrating that it now doesn't automatically open in the desktop app like it used to. If I say pretty please, with a link to cherry on top, would you consider this a legitimate issue?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for reaching out to us about this.
This seems to now be the expected behaviour of the app.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the Community!
Just to clarify, users can still share their favorite Spotify tunes in such a way that the recipient has the option to choose whether or not to open them in the app. This is done when content is shared via the Spotify URI. This page explains how to find and share the URI.
If you'd like to have this option also for Spotify links, it's a good idea to +VOTE this idea and subscribe to it, if you haven't already. We'll inform on any developments there, as soon as there are any.
Hope this helps. Keep us posted if you have any questions.
