How can i see what my friends are listening to?

Newbie

Since the latest update im not able to see what my friends are listening to.. This is one of the features i really liked about spotify, because you did get a lot of suggestions on new music through that.

So is there a way to get the friends activity show up in the "activity tab" ?

Can you not see what they're listening to on the sidebar in the new client?

 

I can at least.

Hi,

I'm also disapointed. This was one of the coolest features and I really miss it.

I also lost most (all?) of my Spotify friends (not linked to Facebook) which is also anoying.

Hey guys 🙂 

 

If you are using the most recent version of Spotify (v0.8.8) then you should be aware there have been some changes to the social system. 

 

Now instead of getting activity from all of your Facebook friends in the feed, you only get the activity of the people, artists or playlists which you Follow. You can manage who you follow from the new Follow tab on the left side of the client, or by using the corresponding buttons on any supported page. At current there is not way to show all of your Facebook friend activity in the new client without following them all. The "Favourites" functionality has also been removed.

 

You might be interested in adding your kudos to these three ideas topics:

Go back to the old activity feed

Favourite functionality in the activity feed

Allow greater control over content displayed

You can still search for your friends who don't use Facebook using the spotify:user:<username> syntax in the main search box to find their profile. Once you find it, you can follow them by pressing the follow button.

Yes, but the Spotify usernames are not always easy to guess and the main problem is if you had many friends.

You have to remember which ones you had and contact them for their exact usernames again.

I do not understand the underlaying reasons from the Spotify developers to remove them in the new version.

I reverted back to the old version and will keep it until these things are solved.
