Lost feature: URI link with timestamp

Windows 10, Spotify desktop app version 1.1.59.714.g7e040462-a

 

My Question or Issue

Prior to this most recent version update, I used to be able to copy a song's URI link and add a # timestamp (e.g., spotify:track:7iqS4pS1eVQbsJGbJKVwQb#0:39) in order to share the song so that it would start playing at that specified time in its duration.

 

This feature now seems to be lost. I've figured out that it is still possible to copy a song's URI link (not only the Song Link or embed code) by pressing the ALT key, but now the # timestamp addition is ineffective - any linked song will simply start playing from the beginning.

 

Is a new timestamp specification format required, or is this a bug that one can hope will be resolved in the next update?
