Thanks to everyone for your support helping me get Spotify to add this! 😃

Daniel Ek told me in person that Repeat One is his favorite Spotify feature.

Why isn't there an option to just repeat a track? I hate having to place a song in a playlist of its own, and then put it on repeat which just repeats the playlist. People have been suggesting you add this feature for years now!

 

EVERY music app should have this feature! This feature should be on all the Spotify apps across all platforms.

 

Add it to the same button as now with a 3-step repeat mode:

1. Repeat ALL/PLAYLIST 
2. Repeat TRACK

3. Repeat OFF

 

My mockup of what this would look like in the iPad app (similar for desktop and other mobile devices):

 

 

My Comments:

 

If Spotify wants to compete with the competition, they need to add this basic feature!

 

It worries me that Spotify hasn't implemented this popular simple idea from 4 years ago, but instead they implement more complex newer ideas.

 

If you ask some people -- this has been a request since the launch of Spotify.

 

I love Spotify, but it hurts that a simple feature like this gets passed up every time new features are rolled out.

 

I feel like I'm living in the 1990s with no repeat track mode anywhere to be found within Spotify.

 

This is a basic feature and it's being looked at like a grain of salt. 

 

I comb through Twitter search every day and a lot of people are very confused on how the repeat mode works so I link them to this idea.

 

I've referred 50+ people now to the link... some didn't know that it only repeated the playlist.

 

This is very confusing for a lot of people, especially newcomers.

  

Oh and look at all of these confused people:

This has just been implemented for everyone using Spotify (0.9.7 and up) on their desktop. Thanks to Matt for the suggestion and so many others who gave this idea their kudos!

Cool, I use this feature a lot, but I had to come to this forum to find out it has been implemented. Clicking many times a button for a function is not exactly "intuitive".

Me too @chinchilla !

 

@spotify it's great that you've done this finally but people we asking for years! I hardly think a light hearted, credit-claiming 'you asked and we listened!...' comment on the release note is appropriate given the amount of effort people put in to pushing you to get the platform up to basic standards!!S, i am very happy!!

 

How do we sign up for feature releases so we don't miss others like this one? (sadly i am expecting no response to this question unless i am in the wrong place to be asking it)
