[All Platforms] Announce Song Name and Artist

Sometimes am listening to Spotify and I want to know what I am listening to, but I cannot check what it is. There should be a setting that when you enable it, the computer reads the artist, album, and song name to you.

That's great news! Problem is I've got an iPhone. Anyway I hope it goes
well for you. It sounds great.

It's been a long time since this feature has poped but still nothing from Spotify... Please do something about it. It would be so nice to have it. For everybody !!!! Please ! It has already be done by someone so it's not that hard to be done.


I miss this feature so much. Especially when I'm discovering new music, I'm constantly looking at my phone which is terrible if I'm doing something else. Also for an app this big you should have voice feedback to make it accessible to blind folk. 


Yeah would be great when listening on Bluetooth speaker/headphones and not near my phone. Would also be nice to enable just when specific devices are connected.


I would prefer to be able to say "Song" and have it tell me the title and the artist. Then if i say "More" it tells me the album and the songwriter.  I often listen to playlists while on my long bike rides.  


Can you please provide an update on the above? I believe it has reached the necessary amount of kudos to be considered. 


I have been looking for this feature for years. It would be the number 1 feature that I would be using while discovering new music, which I do ALL THE TIME.
I remember seeing this post... around  2 years ago.
There are 10 thousands of your subscribers like me with the same question. 
And still nothing? Not even a message saying we're out for coffee for the foreseeable future? 
Spotifiy, This is absolutely ridiculous.
It seems to me that you simply don't give a bat's upside down ass about your community.
Prove me wrong!


This is certainly getting ridiculous. There is not a single update. At least they could say that they won't implement it, but not a peep. Some one else, several years ago, posted a similar suggestion to Spotify, and they turned it down because it didn't get over 100 likes per year. This one certainly is over the threshold, so I imagine it is relatively popular among the community.




Will be kind of oldies radio experiencia of getting to know a new artist
