[Desktop][Your Library] Remove library lazy loading and cache a users library

Casual Listener

IMO the lazy loading has significantly degraded the spotify desktop experience.


I understand the appeal on Spotify's end due to the enormous amount of traffic spotify receives, however I'd suggest implementing a cache to store the users library and just load that if possible.


I typically just listen to albums/artists, and my library has hundreds of them. Scrolling through all of the albums and waiting for them to load is unfortunately, a horrible experience and after 7 years on Spotify is making me think of jumping ship 😞 It was much nicer when you could just grab the scroll bar and jump all the way to the end

Hey @tomkeyte,


Sorry to hear that you're having such an experience with the app.


We'd recommend running a clean reinstall of the app. Please follow the steps from this Spotify Guide exactly, as this will assure that all app data is cleared completely, before reinstalling. This might seem simple, but often helps in such situations.


Keep us posted on how you get on with this.
