Repeat track mode is now available




Matt Suda will forever be known as the guy who pushed Spotify to add repeat track mode and his legacy will live on for music lovers forever...

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


Repeat one is Daniel Ek's 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:

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!

Agreed. It's dumb Spotify can't do this already.

So agreed.  This should have already been included.  Since it is not, make it happen!!!!

Help spread this idea around!

+1, this IS needed. A music player should have this, a 3-way repeat button like Winamp! ;) :D

Thanks for the help everyone!

I actually can't see the need for this. I've been using Spotify since 2008, and I haven't once wanted to repeat a track or playlist... If I wanted to hear a  track again, I would just play it again!
