[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!

Well when will it be available everywhere?

Am I incorrect in observing this request took more than seven years to implement? Is that the usual lifecycle for ideas on this forum?

I think, after all these years, and the lukewarm interest from Spotify, it
is safe to assume that the few of us enthusiasts in the non-implemented
countries represent too small a group to develop for. I'm certain Spotify's
backlog of implementations is lengthy and they need to prioritize based on
perceived value. I wish they'd roll it out so I can use it as well, but ...
it's ok. I get it.

Yep.  More than 7 years to complete a request that was asked for by tons.

 

And many of the "non-implemented" countries represent a LARGE group, so not sure what the person above is trying to explain.  Am I wrong, in the fact that US doesn't even have this feature?

 

Spotify lately has gotten me rather peeved.  Time to start researching other options.

Newbie

Why the **bleep** is it not avialable in all the other countries?

Newbie

Sorry I’m confused - this is marked as implemented,but is there now a mode that ONLY adds to the queue as the OP said ie at a party, people keep trying to add to queue but tap the song and it plays immediately, so a mode that blocks this? As I thought that was the point of this thread but I’m in the UK and can’t see this functionality...

Newbie

OP's request is detailed and the settings would all be nice. Functionality stated in the "Status Update" the simplified version of this would be better than nothing. I'm not sure what's been implemented outside of the largest spotify market (U.S.) as obviously something has been implemented for some countries.

To give an idea of a use case, I would like to have a tablet in the entertainment area that people could add things to queue only. Not remove from queue, not skip tracks... Like a jukebox. If you want a fancy marketing title for it, call it JukeBox mode.

This isn't something that would be difficult to implement. From a development perspective you are simply putting in restrictions based upon a switch... I get how that could be difficult if you start allowing multiple devices to interact with the JukeBox, but that would just be icing on the cake, not fundamental to the desire.

Hey Spotify staff!

 

Can you add an update on availability in other countries?

 

Thanks!
