[Desktop] Notify Spotify of incorrect metadata or broken tracks from Desktop App

There should be a link on every track/album to easily notify Spotify of incorrect metadata such as incorrect artist, track name, album art etc.

Hey folks! We're excited to confirm that Line-In can now be used by any Spotify user. 


Line-In is a tool that allows our most trusted fans and music lovers (like you) to suggest edits to the information we have about artists, albums, and songs on Spotify. This will help improve, extend, and confirm the data describing music - which will in turn help us improve experiences for Spotify Users and the Artists creating the music on Spotify.


You can find the tool by clicking in the three dots next to an Artist, Album, or Song and selecting Suggest an Edit.

By the way, you can still report broken tracks with the contact support form, now that Line-In has been disabled. See this thread:


I agree this! Meta-data reporting system will be good.


I like this. Are you thinking of a similar system to reporting broken content?

Yes. Report bad song or metadata option.


I was just about to post this!  There are SO many errors in the Spotify library.  It it far too complicated to report them as it is.  I should be able to click on a link beside each song and album as suggested and report it quickly and easily.  The Spotify team would have a flood of reports and the library would be far more accurate.


100% behind this suggestion. Spotify should utilise it's vast user-base - not many errors would remain unreported.

Status changed to: Under Consideration

It is my main problem with the otherwize amazing Spotify. The Library has to be accurate, and if this is the way to do it  then so be it. I just want a way to get over the problem of albums being displayed wrongly in the library, often random tracks are orphaned from the rest of the album and given their own album beneath. I'm assuming this is due to innaccuracies in metadata somewhere. At least in iTunes I could work it out and fix it. In Spotify it seems to be not as easy or as effective.


Lets hope this gets better soon!


Maybe a bit off topic, but I'd like to use this notification tool to report popping/glitching in tracks.


In terms of albums being listed under the wrong artist, we are request reports of that here.

The album may be by a different artist that has a similar name, or it may simply by attributed to the wrong artist.


However, in terms other busted metadata (wrong track names, albums with the tracklisting in the wrong order) or broken tracks, the best way to report that would be to send it over to us via our contact form.


Yes yes yes! 


I've been getting really fed up with Spotify's response to wrong artists and what not. There are MANY threads describing several corrections, and yet nothing has been done the last year. Another thing, why do they have artists that have none of their songs?


PLEASE spotify, fix this!
