Hey there @mcoutlook and folks,

 

Thanks for getting back in touch!

 

The best way to leave your feedback regarding a feature we're testing in the app is by sharing it in our Ideas Exchange as suggested in the Spotify Answer @Loxer shared above.

 

You can find more info on how to get started in this Spotify Answer.

 

As a tip, if you submit an idea, we'd recommend making sure that there's one change request per idea so other users can more easily add their support for the change they'd like to see in the app. 

 

You can also share the links to the ideas here in a post, so that other users seeing something similar can find them more easily.

 

Let us know how you get on! We'll be right here if you need more help.

 

Have a lovely day 🙂

I agree with @mcoutlook and don't really see what would be the "new feature". It rather feels like the windows spotify client was downgraded towards the win 10 store version / web app player version with less features. 

 

I would very much appreciate any feedback on how to change back to the proper win32 version.

Hello Katerina,
i have no idea how to submit an idea (even after looking at the article) but i honestly think that this would be useless because while scrolling through other ideas and topics i don't see anyone else having this issue. Also i think if the version that i have right now is really going to be the new update there is going to be a lot of complaints.
I mean i can't really make an idea exchange for an update, or a new look or whatever this is, which nearly no one else has. I don't even know how to write it. 'Please don't make the update ??? which is currently testing on <5% or whatever of the users reality'? If no one else is having this test version then nobody will care about it for now.
In comparison to the older version this is just a big downgrade with basically no features.
And as sschueler says, any information on how or if we can get back to the older version would be appreciated.

Thanks

Was that intended?

If yes then thank you very much!

i am also missing the friend activity column in my spotify client (version 1.1.29.592.gf0779179) on windows 10.

yesterday a restart brought the friend activity column back, but now is gone again and a restart of the client doesn't help anymore.

zooming out and resetting the zoom isn't helping either.

Hello,

normally you should have the option freind activity by clicking the dots in the top left under view where you can also change the zoom.

But with the version i had earlier discussed that option was not there either and if that is the case then i can't help you sorry.

My Question or Issue

I was able to sort music by title, BPM, Artist, Etc. a couple of days ago but now I can't. Why did you remove that feature from the web player? Now, when using the web player, when I click on a playlist I can't sort using columns anymore. This feature isn't on the Desktop App either. This makes it impossible to create a playlist for BPM for training.
