[All Platforms][Your Library] Increase maximum Songs allowed in Your Music

Status: Implemented

I feel like the maximum amount of songs allowed in one playlist, and subsequently in "Songs" playlist under the new "Collections" feature, should be more than 10,000.

 

Quite frankly it should be unlimited. 

 

We are paying for a service but limited on how many songs we are able to save? That is absurd to me.

 

I recently started saving all of my albums into "Collections" and got stuck at about 1/4 of the way through - 10,000 songs has been reached and I am no longer able to save any more albums.

 

PLEASE INCREASE MAX NUMBER OF SONGS IN COLLECTION FEATURE!!!

WHAT IS A COLLECTION IF YOU HAVE TO LIMIT YOUR TASTE???

Updated on 2020-05-26

Hey,

Thanks for coming to the Idea Exchange.

We're excited to be marking this idea as implemented!
We've now removed the limit on saved items in Your Library, making it possible to save songs, and albums on Spotify to your heart's content.

As the app has changed quite a bit since this idea was submitted, please be aware that some functionality is now different. This change does not impact the limit on the number of songs in a playlist other than your Liked Songs.

For more info, check out this blog post.

True!

 

But if you pay Premium nicely, you buy the privilege of programming your own fixes for these bugs in the player.

 

And for free after you do the programming yourself outside the Spotify player, Spotify throws in a complete sortable and filterable collection of over 150,000 tracks of your choice, with zero duplicates even . . . .

What are you talking about? Paying for the privilege to write code for the
client? Spotify throwing in filterable sortable collections of another
arbitrarily finite size? This makes zero sense to me.

rednblu has repeatedly posted about his "solution" (which is a workaround
he created because Spotify is being non-responsive on the actual issue of
having a library of more than 10K songs - in the sense of "Your Music" -
which is what this issue is about), which doesn't solve the problem of
saved songs (which is needed if you want to listen to songs offline).

It addresses part of the issue - if streaming is all you care about. While
this topic isn't about the download limit specifically (which is capped at
3,333 tracks for each of up to 3 devices, IIRC), it does impact one's
ability to expand their music library in order to download new songs.

Kudos to him for coming up with a workaround - but at the same time,
continuing to bring it up does dilute the issue here, and actually gives
Spotify a reason to not address the underlying limitation/problem. That
said, it works for some people because of how they want to use "Your
Music". It works around one particular use case.

I pay Premium to get to hear the music that I want to hear.

And I complain that Spotify leaves it to me to figure out how to debug the Spotify players.

Luckily, my friends showed me how to do it-- And all I had to do was configure my friends' programming fixes to filter and sort exactly the music that only I want to hear-- I also made variations on programming fixes to get my family the very different music streams that only They want to hear.

I have experienced no finite limitation on the size-- up to 150,000 tracks-- Has anybody experienced a finite limitation somewhere above 150K?

I want you to get the 100K track collection that you want and deserve-- But I see no way to get Spotify to do it for me-- or for you-- or for anybody.  Is there any hope?

That is not the business model here-- The users have to make the programming fixes for the bugs-- And we all complain about it here in different ways.

Complain, complain, mumble, (mumble), . . . . .

Sure, but as you know (from several points in this discussion), the 10K
limit that this particular issue is about affects other functionality in
Spotify. You may be a streaming-only user, and this workaround works for
you.

But I cache files offline on my phone. When I'm at the 10K limit and I
discover something new, I can't actually cache the music on my phone unless
I remove stuff from "Your Music" - because the limit impacts the user's
ability to "Save" a track or album.

And no amount of end-user custom programming solves that problem without
removing things from the "Your Music" library.

So I'm glad you have a solution that works for you, as a streaming user, to
shuffle 150K songs. It doesn't work around other issues that people have
as a result of this absurdly low limit. I think we're all agreed on that.

As well as being agreed that it's stupid that end users should have to
resort to doing *any* custom programming on their own to work around this
ridiculous limitation.

Completely unacceptable to limit songs and albuns for premium customers. I reached the epic collection and no way to delete my library built in years and love. If just 1% reaches this level, we aare still talking about half a million of users. It is completely outrageous ask to delete albuns and songs. There is no limit on music during our lifetime, everyday we are learning new songs, albuns and new artists, it is something that is part of our daily llife learning and listening. Music is not and would never be limited in time and space!!! I'm Very annoyed

Yo pago por el servicio

Y si el 99% no escuchan mas de 3333 no es mi problema 

Como cliente exigo un incremento ya que en otros servicios de streaming si se pueden descargar mas de 3333 tracks

Y tan solo por la preferencia que le tenemos a Spotify deberían de hacer lo mas pronto posible el incremento
