[All Platforms] Party Mode: Only Queue, Password, etc.

How about a function that when turned on, only allows the queing of music (i.e instead of dubblevclicking to play the next song, it will just be que'd)? This would be great if u have a party and don't peolple changing midtrack all the time. 

 

 

 

Edit:

 

[Wow! Great to see that my idea has gained support, seems like I wasn't the only one that thought that this would be a great idea. As requested; I'll edit my post to better explain the idea]

 


Spotify Partymode

# Main Goal #
The main purpose of this feature is to be able to set Spotify in a partymode preventing people
from randomly changing tracks in the middle of a song.
Partymode will be easy to customize with several options making it suitable for all types of parties.
This feature will only be accessible with Spotify Premium.

 

Partymode will also decrease the number of fist fights dramaticly and therefore lead to a much better party-experience.

 

# Options #

* Enable/Disable partymode. (If partymode is enabled when logging out, it will be enabled on logon).

* Password protection. (If you want to set a partymode password. Default is Spotify password.)
* Allow skipping to next song? (Yes/no).
* Volume lock. (Prevent volume from being changed).

 

# Queuing #
* Queuing:
    - Only allow queuing new tracks. (Prevents people from changing tracks in the middle of a song).
    - Only allow queuing X songs within Y second (Spam protection).
    - Only allow queuing X songs from same artist. (Spam protection).
    - If no songs in queue, play music from this playlist: <playlist>.
    - Time limit (Not allowed to queue songs longer that X minutes).
* Exclude genres, artists and songs.
* Store partymode to playlist: <playlist> (prevents clearing the queue on logout/login).

 

# Admin mode #
    - Unlock partymode.
    - Delete from queue.
    - Re-order queue.
    - Change track instantly.
    - Set/change partymode password.
    - Enable partymode.

 

# Defaults #
* Lock existing playlists so that they can't be modified or deleted.
* Partymode will not scrobble to last.fm.
* Partymode will prevent access to social networks.
* Purchases will not be allowed in partymode.
* Disable access to Inbox and other personal information.

 

[]Though I must say the way to controll the volume while you'r having a party is to use a spotify remote app instead. Way too easy to just crank up the speaker volume even if you have a volume lock.]

Hi everyone.

 

As our previous update mentions, when one idea includes (many) smaller parts it is virtually impossible to ever set it to Implemented. One part is implemented, another isn't, what do you do?

For all intents and purposes I'm treating this idea as one simple suggestion:

"Let my fellow party people somehow connect to my session and add their tracks."

This has now been implemented on both iOS and Android in Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain and Sweden.

To that end I've set this to Implemented.

 

If the original author of this idea, or anyone else for that matter, would like to request additional features, please do a quick search of our Idea Exchange and either vote on an existing idea, or make a new suggestion.

And, please keep in mind to keep suggestions as separate as possible; it'll make it easier for us to update a status in future. (And save all of us from more walls of text :))

 

Party on!

Hi all,

my idea is very similar to the one posted here: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/Partify-Spotify-Party-Mode/idi-p/42115 . We all know the problem that everyone wants their songs to be played at a party. Some just change the song even if it's still playing. My idea is quite simple and would have a lot of completly new features that would have to be implementet:

 

In the Spotify menu, there's somewhere a DJ/Party Mode. When clicked on it, a QR Scanner opens. One just has to scan the QR Code that was created and printed out before by the hosts of the party. The QR Code can hang on the wall, can be fixed on some tables or similar if someone scans it, he/she is able to add (let's say a maximum of 3) songs to the playlist.

 

I think that would be a great feature for small parties!

What do you think?

 

Greetings,

Niklas

Spotify is pretty much pointless without a queue by default setting. Even my 20 year old cd player can queue a track by default instead of stopping.

That's a fantastic idea, the social aspect of Spotify definitely needs a refresh.

This should be available for non-premium members. That way if I have a friend who doesn’t have Spotify premium they can share their music when they come over without that annoying ad break.

Heads up that this was asked for in 2012.  It is now 2018 and as a subscriber and managerial aspect, this is kind of ridiculous you have something like this sitting this long without being addressed even slightly (no one is asking for all of these features at once).

There are some alternative apps which are compatible with Spotify and do this sort of thing well, such as Jukestar (on Android, not sure about iPhone)

Surprised this has yet to be worked on. It's a fair comment from spotify that there are a lot of comments with different people wanting multiple different approaches.

 

However the app really is crying out for some kind of implementation of this that allows one user host a party mode, which allows other spotify users to add songs to a central queue. Any implementation of this which allows users to collobrate in a party setting would be unniversally welcomed I think, regardless of which specific approach may be chosen.
