Horrible update [0.8.8]

[ Edited ]

 

Spotify took many steps backward with the update to the Windows version released about a week ago and I have gone from from very happy to considering canceling my subscription.  To the best of my memory, here are the problems I've found:

 

1.  The track count in a playlist only updates after going to a different playlist and coming back to that playlist.

2.  The artwork in the header of a playlist only updates after closing and reopening Spotify.  This may be intentional and not a bug per se, but after getting used to the artwork updating automatically as the playlist changed, it definitely feels like it's not working properly to me.

3. You cannot drag a song from an album to a playlist while on the artist page - only while on a playlist, when viewing an album, or in search results.  I'm pretty sure this has already been reported, but I wanted to mention it again.

4. I would like to see the playlist play time brought back.  Enhancement suggestion: when the play time reaches over a day, continue to show the hours and minutes in addition to days.

5. The album release year no longer shows on an album page.  Even though it's not always correct, it's nice to be able to see this without having to view the entire artist page.

6. The albums on artist pages are no longer sorted by year and sometimes seem fairly randomly sorted.

7. Filtering no longer is an option on artist pages.  If an artist has dozens of albums available, it's nice to be able to filter to one specific album.  Another example is filtering for a certain song to see what/how many albums it is on.  I know both of these can mostly be accomplished via a normal search, but it is often more efficient to filter on the artist page.

8.  On searches, the results are no longer grouped by song if the song is on multiple albums by the same artist.  This was a nice feature since it somewhat decluttered the results list.  Also, now if you want a certain version of a song you have to do a bit more work to find the album you want.

9.  This isn't a bug, and this has also been mentioned by a couple other users, but the white on white/grey on artist pages and searches is very hard on the eyes and it should be a user preference option to go back to the old color scheme.

10.  The boxes containing albums on artist or album pages are a bit too small and often song titles are cut off.  Since there is no ability to resize the width nor is there tiptext, you can't see the the full title of some songs unless you put the song(s) into a playlist.

11. The blank space in the now playing box at the bottom left corner no longer does anything when clicked.  It would previously return you to the currently playing playlist/album.  This feature only works now when clicking the artwork, but if your artwork is always the minimized version, you have a very narrow area in which to click since you have to avoid clicking the maximize button.

12. Spotify is very sluggish when first launching.  At the point when it seems like it has finished loading, if I start clicking on things, it locks up for a few seconds.  If I wait about 15 seconds after it seems to have finished loading, it is not a problem.  I can't recall how long it took to be usable when opening the program before this update, but it was not nearly this long.


That's all I can think of at the moment, but I'll add more if I remember/find any additional problems.  The one positive thing I can say about the update is that the ability to follow artists is something I have wanted for a while, so good work there.  However, I might have stuck with the "subscribe" naming, because Grooveshark uses Follow/Followers for the same concept.  I do have an enhancement suggestion regarding following: the ability to differentiate artists or users that you are following/being followed by (i.e. sorting or different tabs for each).  As the list of following/followers grows, it will be increasingly difficult to find your friends in a sea of bands.

 

I hope to see many if not all of these issues fixed in the near future, or at the very least user preferences for the major functionality changes.  If not, while my actual listening experience may not have changed, my usability experience will be very much diminished.

 

Moderator Update 1:

We've posted an update with some of the changes that we're making, based on your feedback: http://community.spotify.com/t5/Help-Desktop-Linux-Mac-and/Horrible-update-0-8-8/m-p/316082#M34646

List of flaws in the new update

[ Edited ]

Agree with every point you've mentioned.

To be honest, this update didn't feel like an upgrade for me either.

 

Here's an updated version of everything that could be better in the new version:

(Some issues are fixed in the newest version 0.8.8.459 - you can get it here)

 

I. Design & Layout

 

     1. White background in Artist/Album/Search view

         Too bright for the eyes – Inconsistent to old grey elements – Harder to read

          Ideas: Customizing of skins - Change the white interface.

          The idea's status is now "Under Consideration".

     2. New pages are web-based

          Longer time to display (slower navigation) for most users – loading errors for some users

          Idea: Revert to native app, or at least provide an option for one

          If the artist pages are slower for you - press the "Me too" button in this topic.

          Version 0.8.8.454 seems to be faster/uses less memory. So far no crashes. (unconfirmed)

     3. Star albums at Artist view is no longer possible

          Idea: [0.8.8] Starring an album on artist page
     4. No different versions for an album on Artist view anymore

         You can only show them in Album view.

     5. The release date of an album is no longer shown in Album view next to the album

          The year is only shown really small next to the label under the songs.

          Idea: Make album year more prominent

     6. The title section on album/artist page is too small

          Long titles are often cut off and there’s not even a tooltip to show the whole title.

          Version 0.8.8.450 has bigger title fields again

     7. Local files that are missing on Spotify are no longer displayed in artist view

         You have to search for this specific, missing album to view it.

     8. Playing tracks from top tracks in artist view don’t give you the little speaker symbol next to the song anymore

          Fixed in version 0.8.8.450
     9. Top tracks in Artist page don’t have a star icon/popularity bar anymore

          Idea: Top title list has no more stars

          Version 0.8.8.450 has a star icon at top tracks again

   10. Playlists in profile are no longer sorted by public/private but just displayed as 1 long list

          Idea: Secret, public & subscribed Playlists toggle view in 'profile'

   11. Album artwork is bigger on artist page which results in less space for the song title

          Idea: [0.8.8] Album artwork on Artist pages is too Large

          Version 0.8.8.450 has more space for the title field

          If you use Spotify not maximized/on a small screen, the artwork will automatically become smaller on version 0.8.8.450

   12. Small album covers in local tracks/library/playlists are no longer available (since version 0.9.0)

 

II. Basic functionality

 

     1. Total playlist time is gone

         Idea: Bring back total playlist length

         The idea's status is now under "Watch this space".

     2. From artist page you can’t drag a song to a playlist anymore

         This got acknowledged as bug here.

         Fixed in version 0.8.8.450

     3. Filter on artist page is no longer possible

         Idea: Bring back the filter option on album / artist pages

         A developer said they will bring it back here and the status got changed to "Watch this space".

     4. Blank space in the “Now playing” box no longer directs to the current song position

         Only a click on the album cover works now.

        Ideas: Click Artist/Song-Title bar to go to song

     5. Clicking on the album art directs you to your scroll position on the album page but not the song position

         Idea: Pressing song's artwork should direct you to the song.

         This got acknowledged as bug here.

         Fixed in version 0.9.0

     6. You can no longer shuffle/repeat the whole catalogue on artist page

         It just repeats/shuffle in the album/top list you are currently in.

         Idea: Bring back play all songs by artist

         The idea's status is now "Under Consideration".

         Fixed in version 0.9.0

     7. Playing an album on album view will not stop after the last song but go to the first song of the next album

         Related idea: [0.8.8] Stop playing when album ends

         Fixed in version 0.8.8.450

     8. Ctrl/Cmd + A doesn't work anymore on Artist page to easily mark all songs

     9. Clicking on an artist in the related artist view and afterwards clicking on "back" returns you to the original artist page
         After clicking "back" you should return again to the position you scrolled to in the related artist page like in 0.8.5.

         Idea: Put 'Related Artists' page back into navigation history

 

III. Social

 

     1. Friends don’t get displayed on the friends list automatically anymore

         You have to follow the friends that you want to see there.

         Idea: Allow Greater Control Over Content Displayed in the Activity Feed

     2. Friends don’t get displayed in a compact list anymore at the people list

         Makes it harder to share music. - You don't see the exact time when a friend has listened to a song anymore.

         The possibility to mark a friend as "favorite" is gone. - The profile picture got replaced with album art of the song.

         Ideas: Go back to the old activity feed - Favorite Functionality in the Activity Feed - Activity Feed Timestamp (Recency)

     3. You can no longer see all your friends in the Follow tab

         Idea: Ability to View All Facebook Friends in Follow Tab

     4. You no longer have an overview of your playlist subscribers

         You are presented with just 3 pictures of subscribers, no way to show a list of them.

         Idea: Ability to View All playlist followers

     5. The "Who to follow" recommendations seem pretty random and don't fit to the own music taste

         Idea: Personalised Who to Follow notifications

 

IV. Others

 

     1. Track count and playlist picture don’t update automatically in playlist anymore

     2. Not playable tracks are still counting for the number of tracks in the playlist
         Artists of those tracks will also show up in description of the playlist ("Including artists: ...")

     3. Some users report albums are no longer in the right order (unconfirmed)

     4. Some users report playlist sorting options are not saved

         This got acknowledged as bug here.

     5. Some users report album covers don't show properly, often there's just a replacer (unconfirmed)

         When you actually play the song with the missing album cover, the cover will be displayed immediately.

     6. Delete playlist confirmation window is gone

         With 1 click your playlist can be deleted now if you press the wrong button.

         Fixed in the version 0.8.8.450

     7. Idea to roll back to the old version 0.8.5: here.

         The idea's status got changed to "Not right now"

     8. Some users report that the playlist filter doesn't work properly anymore

         After you press Ctrl/Cmd + F in playlist, the filter bar shows up but no field to type in

         This got acknowledged as bug here.

     9. Screenreaders (used by blind people) don't work anymore on the web-based artist/album/search pages (topic)

Re: Horrible update

Another big issue for me is that we no longer see the entire contents of an album that spotify does not have available.  For instance - before the update, I have several songs from "The Amps" in my local library.  Before the update I could see the entire album pacer, but the songs that I (and spotify) did not have available were listed, but grayed out.  Now those are completely andi t appears as if the album only has 3 songs.  

 

So many steps backwards with this update.  Agree with op on almost every one of his points.

Ease of development does matter though, even though that wasn't the main point I was trying to make.

I don't know all the ins and outs of spotify development, but surely a client which can be standardised across mutliple platforms would allow features to be added more easily and bugs to be fixed quicker, at the sacrifice of performance of a native application.  Those are both issues that affect community support inmy eyes.

 

Peter


IMHO, I don't think it'll be easier to add features or possible for bugs to be fixed quicker unless the overall functionality of the Spotify client is way dumbed down. This may make sense if Spotify plans to make the free/basic client into a web client, but it does not make sense for the current native client, especially for Premium customers.

 

As others have said, of Spotify ends up getting rid of their native cients, they are basically shooting themselves in the head. They will have zero competitive differentiation and people will have no reason to stick with them. I certainly won't pay $120/yr for some lame web client.

Brilliant guys. Thanks for all your input in keeping the rubbish, user unfriendly Spotify update at bay.

It all seems to work just fine so far. I'm not very computer savvy but managed to work it out. I feel like i've been in a battle of wills. I guess the battle is won but not the war. Hopefully all the messages will have some positive effect.


Glad to hear you got the old version working! Cheers on getting back to the dark side of Spotify :)

 

It took some really good teamwork to win this battle. Hopefully with some continued teamwork, we can win some more battles :)

 

I think the next test will be finding how to reach the CEO directly or someone who is in charge of product management. That is one thing that is great about Apple. The CEO has a well known email address and cares enough to answer some messages, especially when things are not going well and customers need reassurance things will get better.

Although i managed to get no response from anybody in twitter i did manage to get some response from Support. I directed them to this thread and was assured that my concerns would be passed along. Whether or not that will lead to any action we shall have to wait and see. Other limited dealings i have had as a customer with other company client developers has usually led to a zero reaction as developers seem to think they know what is best for their company's cusomers. I guess that is okay until the company and their jobs are gone. Thanks for your support and advice :) 


Hmm.

 

We shall see - TBH I don't mind the new client, it's just the colours contrast too much. I really think there should be an option for multiple styles.

Re: Feedback on the new update [0.8.8]

[ Edited ]

Hey all,

 

Thanks once again for all the feedback you're giving us on the new version of Spotify. We really are listening to each and every one of you. And to that end, we've prepared an update of the some of the issues that we're already addressing.

 

Changes that we're making, based on your feedback:

1. Bringing back the total playlist length

2. Fixing the drag and drop on artist pages [fixed in 0.8.8.450!]

3. Restoring the filter option on artist page

4. Show release year on the album page as well as...

5. Sort albums on the artist page by year

 

The design team are also considering various options surrounding the new white interface that a lot of you have mentioned. 

 

I can't give you a firm date on when these changes will come into place. Some features may take longer to implement than others but don't worry, we'll be back with more updates just as soon as we get them.

 

Please continue to show your support for other changes in the threads Premify has kindly linked to here.

 

We hear you!

It's bugging the hell out of me too. I HATE the new update. And I mean REALLY HATE IT.

 

Now there's a saying that says if you don't like, don't use it. In my case, I've reinstalled the 8.5 update several times for the past couple of days but the darn thing keeps going back to the 8.8 update BY ITS darn SELF.

 

I WANT THE 8.5 VERSION, DON'T AUTO UPDATE IT YOU WORTHLESS MF.

 

So my question is, is there any way I can prevent having the 8.8 update make its way into my computer without me asking for it? It's really annoying and I DON'T WANT IT.


The key is to disable the auto-update. And this is a little tricky. On Windows, follow the instructions BigKev57 wrote up. Well over a month ago... They are earlier in this thread, but I've put them below for clarity. If you are running on Mac, try these instructions (kudos to fgmart, evelinder, peter).

 

----

 

Step 0. Uninstall Spotify v0.8.8 and make sure it is deleted from your system (do a search for spotify.exe). Then follow the below instructions.

 

Then download an old version from here. Version 0.8.5.133 works fine.

 http://www.filehorse.com/download-spotify/11842/  

 (thanks to AbsolutelyNoFB)

 

Next go to this directory (it may be hidden in Windows Explorer, so if you can't see it, type %appdata% into the directory box and press Enter.

 

Go to C:/Users/<put in your user name>/Appdata/Roaming/Spotify

 

0. If there are existing Spotify_new.* files here and they are not the zero length files you created before, delete them.

 

1. Make a new empy text file (right click, New | Text Document works fine)

2. Name it Spotify_new.exe

3. Right click the file and make the file read only

 

1. Make a new empty text file

2. Name it Spotify_new.exe.sig

3. Right click the file and make the file read only

 

Spotify will not be able to update because it can't delete the files, because they are read only, all future upgrades will fail.

 

This method is easy to use and permanent.

(Many thanks to skomes)

 

It all seems to work just fine so far. I'm not very computer savvy but managed to work it out. I feel like i've been in a battle of wills. I guess the battle is won but not the war. Hopefully all the messages will have some positive effect.

Re: Horrible update

Well of course the sorting seems to work now.  I can't find an example where it's broken now, but for the last week I noticed that several artist pages had the albums in approximately the right order but one random album that wasn't the most recent would be at the top.  I thought it might have been the most popular one or something like that.  But again, I can't find a broken one right now.

Yes and you can't search from album page or artist page.

Re: Horrible update

Also just noticed: The local files are no longer displayed in the artist view.

So even if you have the album that's missing in the discography, it isn't shown there.

You have to search it and can view it at the album page though... or at the local files/library.

Re: Horrible update

I agree with every point. The Spotify client took an enormous step backwards with this latest update. The new version is dysfunctional, abhorrent and ugly. I'd like to be able to use the previous version of the client. Would someone from Spotify tell their *paying customers* how to do this.

 

And I would add that this sort of disrespectful behavior on the part of Spotify is sure to alienate paying customers. When Apple gets their streaming music solution together, it's just more reason to leave. Why does it seem so hard for Spotify management to be nice to their paying customers? From automatically creating Facebook accounts without the customer's knowledge or approval to making the client unenjoyable to use... why? Offering good value and getting paid for it is so simple, so easy. Why do all this dumb stuff instead? It's a continuous stream of "WTF" instead of "here's more good stuff for our loyal customers".

David:

 

Can you please tell me and the rest of the community members that abhor the new client how to download the last version so we can use it instead of this terrible new downgrade?

 

I don't want to use it. I pay you guys $120/yr for a working client. This new client is hardly that.

@AbsolutelyNoFB

The problem is, once Spotify upgraded to the newest version - you can't go back.

Even if you get the installer of the last version, Spotify would just auto-update after each new start.

 

There is an idea here to disable the auto-update.
