[Desktop] Lost Features, no friend tab, etc.

Since a few days i lost a few features which i would like to have back.

Device

Lenovo Laptop

Operating System

My Question or Issue

My Desktop Version got updated all of a sudden and now i got a completely different look. I don't have the friend activity bar on the right side, i can't change my playlists covers or description. I can't even see my own profile like before on the top right. It is like the phone version because i honestly can't customize anything anymore.

Same on the Web player. I downloaded an older version already, which helps, but it updates itself automatically and gets back to the new(?) design. Is there anyone with the same issues or with a solution?

Thanks.

Hey @mcoutlook 

 

Just to get a better picture, I'd like to know what version you're currently running and what was the version of the older client you tried installing? 🙂

You can see the version in menu dots - Help - About Spotify.

 

The Friend Activity should be enabled by clicking on the menu dots - View.

 

Let me know 🙂

Hi @Sebasty,

thanks for reaching out.

 

I'm currently on the version 1.1.28.721.g5b5ee660.

The earlier version i downloaded was 1.1.24.9.

As you can see in the screenshot i don't have any options under 'view'.

Thank you for helping!

I was able to before- but now for some reason it isn't working. I own a mac and I have the desktop app. I've tried left and right clicking everything but nothing seems to work! I've tried restarting my laptop, closing out of the app, and even downloading the app again but it doesn't work. Please help me edit my playlist cover. I'm just tryna make a cute playlist for my bf.

The screenshot looks like it’s taken from the web player.

Hey @spoonies_, welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!

As @AeroZ mentioned you are using the web player, not the desktop app of Spotify.

Currently you can only use the desktop apps to change a playlists cover and descriptions.

Thanks and take care 🙂

I have the exact same problem, it seems like windows automatically changes the win32 spotify version to the windows store app version (which sucks). any comment on how to prevent this would be very much appreciated.
