Playlist Radio is the remaining feature I pay for. Without it I'm not going to use Spotify. 90% of my Spotify listening is shuffled offline playlists on mobile or playlist radio on wifi.
I'm a premium user and have been for years. Almost since launch in my country
Spotify was great but now it's desparately trying to steer my listening for me.
I don't want "recommended for me", "Daily Mix", "Discover Weekly" or "Release Radar"
I don't use any of the categories in Browse or Home.
I pick the artists to follow, I hear about their new releases. Great. Don't guess for me. Except that feature doesn't work reliably.
I can't interface spotify with my own music collection because it still can't read local flac files. We were told that "feature" was coming nearly a decade ago.
The send feature has gone along with my inbox, there are now gems I was sent and can't find again. As well as songs I've sent to other people neither of us can remember.
I'm paying £5 a month through NUS for convinience and without playlist radio. I have no reason to pay for Spotify at all.
