Hi Everyone

Dan here again from the Desktop team.  The latest version of the Desktop client (1.1.51) is rolling out now and contains a lot of changes, improvements and fixes.  Here’s a short highlight of some of the changes you may notice in the new version.

 

Playlist changes

  • The ‘duplicate tracks’ dialog now correctly shows when multiple duplicate tracks are added to a playlist
  • It is now possible to select multiple tracks and drag to library or add to library from the context menu
  • Added keyboard interactions to playlist menu in the left sidebar
  • Added sorting dropdown to all playlist pages
  • Improved drag and drop performance on playlists
  • Fix playlist not being played in the sorted or filtered order when playing from the header play button

Others

  • Improved display of shortcuts on the Home page
  • Added listening history stats to user profile page
  • Improved restoration of correct scroll locations when moving back/forth
  • Added ability to select offline storage location from settings
  • Added ability to navigate to followers and following pages from the profile header

One  additional setting that I've seen some feedback on but unfortunately didn't make it in time for this release was the ability to change proxy settings.  This should be ready for 1.1.52.As always, please do ensure you’re fully updated and are running the latest version. We again thank you for the feedback provided.

 

Thanks,

Dan

Hey! Thank you for keeping improving the Desktop app!

The new UI is so much better, clean, and easy to use!
The old one sucks. It's slow and ugly compared to the new one.

I'm looking forward to getting the Group Session feature on Desktop too. 👀

Thank you and keep up the good work.

How do you have access to the new UI?

Found a new issue.

 

If you play a podcast from the desktop app, it does not go to the next episode in the order but will instead skip to a different episode. However, if I start it playing the podcast from my phone and send it to my pc, it will play in the proper order.

 

Not only did y'all take away sorting from podcasts on desktop (I'm still not sure what you were thinking on that one and why some people on this forum are acting like it was never there and needs to be suggested to add it back) but they don't even have the capability to play properly now. But I guess that makes sense given the issue currently ongoing with albums playing in the album order in playlists instead of the playlist order.

Yo, that's really weird...

 

Spotify is just testing some things out ... On a small group of users...

 

But it is really stupid that there is no communication before things are going to happen! They just doing things and that is really annoying...

 

They have a beta or Alpha testing group on Android and iOS, so why on earth doesn't exist that for Windows (PC) users... That doesn't make any sense at all!

My old large playlists don't have the duplicate song pop-up after the UI update.

The duplicate song pop-up should be fixed soon on the desktop, cause the web version is already fixed.

Thanks for fast response. It has been tough times to search every song I add to playlists in case of duplicate songs. Hopefully this comes asap.

Well, I just had a reply of mine with an issue get marked as spam for some reason. Guess I'll repost it with just the issue to see if my extra commentary on it was the problem. (aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand now my reply that had been removed is back)
