[All Platforms] Change playback speed when listening to music

Ok before i start i want to tell you of the history of the requests for this issue. the oldest request i can find had 573 upvotes and was a generally good idea (Link to OP). 


spotify's response:

Hey folks. We're marking this idea as Case Closed today as it's "Not Right Now" status hasn't changed in over 3 years. We're working hard to update the ideas you're voting on that have a chance at getting built at Spotify--we're trying to be fully transparent here. Please continue to leave your feedback here in the Idea Exchange so we can bring it to our product owners, thanks!


Now this response is basically saying: "since we dont have the time to implement this right now, we are going to close this case and never come back to it."

Another user had the same issue i had (post here) AND HE GOT CASED CLOSED FOR TRYING TO BRING BACK THE DISCUSSION.


Ok, now i think spotify should allow you to change the playback speed of tracks. Youtube has that abillity and honestly this makes me want to cancell my spotify premium plan and switch to a youtube red plan. Spotidy could even use it to get more premium users if it was a premium only feature. A lot of users like to listen to music at faster or slower speeds (especially slow orchestral music) and for us Youtube would be a better option.


Thank you for listening to my rant - Gacko

Hello and thanks for bringing your feedback to the Idea Exchange. We've marked this as a new idea--we've also updated the title to clarify what you're requesting for other users.

Spotify Staff will look into this idea once it reaches the necessary amount of votes. More information about how the Spotify Idea Exchange works can be found: here


Spotify have been ridiculous on this.  This functionality has been requested a few times in different cases but ultimately closed by the Spotify team.  Claims that they're too busy - yet they're implementing almost no new features lol.  Crazy.


As an alternate solution, just make the OS X version of Spotify compatable with the Amazing SlowDowner-- this is a feature which is *already present* in the iOS and Android versions.

100% agree. Speed control is essential to those of us who learn music by ear and want to use Spotify.


Need this feature desperately for practicing dancing. Have been happy with DJAY in the past - I dont want to leave Spotify behind me....
Please show us, that you do a great job!
