Make the "download" buttons optional

I have no desire to download MP3s through Spotify, and I never will. Can I have the option to hide the "Get" buttons, please? I accidentally click them sometimes, and they clutter up what was once a really lovely, bare-bones desktop client.

 

We've added a "Hide Purchase Buttons" option in the newest version of Spotify (Premium users only).  You can find the option in the Purchases area of your Preferences.

I agree this. Also we need option to hide all Share buttons.

Thank you! Really good option.

 

I don't buy songs, because i have those songs all in my PC Spotify and Mobile Spotify! All in Windows platform.

 

Thank you for this!

Can this thread now be locked pleased? A zillion thanks isn't much use and each reply just sticks older threads further down the list.

 

Thanks for the update btw. I'd rather a working Android app and tablet support but this is nice to have I guess. I tend to just ignore them. I'm on Premium too.

We prefer to give implemented threads some time before archiving to give people a place to direct feedback and questions, should they arise.  In due time, we'll lock the threads.

Another note of thanks for this. Makes a surprising difference to the program with less visual clutter.

Shouldn't this be an easy thing to implement in the Linux version?

I can't seem to find this option. I also have never seen any download options. Does this mean that spotify is in the business of selling music now? I am a premium user, and I'm running the mac version 0.8.2.567.g655da453

A simple mixing app: play a song, pick another: choose starting point, and mix.

A bit of beat synchronization/adjustment for the first 5-15 seconds would be great, then number fades to normal speed again. 

 

I can't wait...!
