My Question or Issue

I just got the new update for today, and the scrolling on the left now is made more annoying and rather inconvenient, as Home, Browse, and Radio aren't part of one scroll and there seems to be a invisible black bar the top covering the playlists further up, as a design choice this seems rather bad. I do not like it nor appreciate it in the slightest. I don't like complaining on you guys, but of all the update changes, this is my only gripe. Please fix it if you could, at least the invisible black bar. Thanks.

Same here, it's extremely annoying. Before we already had that huge "New Playlist" button that was taking up lots of space, but OK..

And now the Home/Browse/Radio part is sticky, which leaves less then a third of the sidebar space for the playlists.

I mean, why introduce such a change? Are the users too stupid to scroll to the top to reach Home or Browse?

Please revert this change. Seriously.

I just got the new update, too, and this is really annoying. It minimizes the available space of the sidebar and one's playlists for no reason.

My Question or Issue

the left sidebar including my songs, playlists/other is now not mounted with the home, browse and radio bars, this means i cannot have the album art a desirable size at all anymore, without it meaning i cannot now scroll, as the whole thing doesn't move up, it's only in the last week i have noticed this. this is completely unnacceptable.
wanna know something? i just got my four year badge on spotify and i'm willing to flush that away for a good, easy to use service. fix this by the end of the week. or i swear to god, every song iv'e even thought about in the last four years, will be transferred to apple music. and i will leave you. forever. FIX. THIS. NOW.

Hi @izreor !

 

I can understand that this is a problem that causes a lot of trouble. However, I would like to remind you that almost everyone in this community is a fellow Spotify user who is just trying to help out other people like you. There is no reason to get upset.

 

With regards to your problem, this is a solution that is often overlooked. Have you tried to restart your computer? And if that doesn't work, try to delete the Spotify app from your Mac, restart the computer and install it again.

 

Hope this works out!

I've deleted and reinstalled this app 5 times and nothing has happened. Spotify really needs to go into retrograde because these new changes to UI are not great whatsoever. I had to download an APK on mobile because it was so bad.

I've deleted and reinstalled Spotify from my computer and the same issue is still there. The scrolling bar on the left is not working as it should. It separated Home, Browse, and Radio from Recently Played, Albums, etc., so now the scroll window is so small I can only read one title at a time.

Hi @americawentz ! 🙂

I had this issue too, but you can resize the menu on the left so that it's easier to scroll through. Just hover your cursor over the side margin and it allows you to click and drag the box until it's at a comfortable enough view.

I hope this helped and have an amazing day! 🙂

This isn´t an error. It's another brilliant idea from the development team. They have put it this way from the last update. They don´t get tired of touching things that work, and spoil them.

I'm seeing this on windows desktop app as well. It's almost unusable at this point because if I make the album art smaller to give more breathing room it also provides less width and I can no longer read my playlist names.

At this point the only workable solution I can find is to minizmie the album art so it is on the bottom bar with the controls. This somewhat defeats the purpose for me though since I would rather be able to see the album art in a larger picture.

I have attached a screenshot showing this in practice as well.
