[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!

There could be revisions and advancements towards this. Allow users to queue from their own mobile devices! This will make things vastly more efficient.

Reset your forgotten Spotify password and restore access to your account:

Enter your Spotify username, or the email address that you used to register. 

We'll send you an email with your username and a link to reset your password.

 

If you use a fa.ce-bo.ok login, reset your password here. If you login with a spotify username then

 

1. Got to spotify password reset page

2. If you get redirected to "Edit your Profile", click on your name at the top of the page and select log out.

3. Go back to link and you would be able to reset your password

 

Make sure that you are logged out of Spotify first. Then, go to  here. Hope this helped!!

Spotify Forgot Password ? Step to Reset/ Change Password

 

Changing your passwords regularly is a good idea, so we’ve made it easy to do. Or maybe you’ve forgotten your password... Don’t worry, it’s easy to reset, too!

Note: If you have a Fa.ce-bo.ok-created account, you should now be able to reset your Spotify password without changing your Fa.ce-bo.ok one.

Spotify NEEDS to implement at least the queue lock, ASAP. accidentally clicking a track while searching loses the whole queue, no matter how long you've been creating it. So frustrating.

Hello, I recently submitted an idea and they told me it was the same as your idea. However, after reading yours I see many key differences but I want to know what you think? Primarily yours seems to focus on a queue on a singular device where as mine focuses on people on different devices having the ability to add to the same queue.

As far as I know, this feature was never added.  In fact, this topic has existed for years and Spotify never implemented it.  Don't think they care to listen to users.

No the power is in connecting multiple devices for easy access and fast adding of songs.
