[Desktop][Social] Enable Group Session on Desktop

Group Session was recently added to Spotify and it seems like a wonderful feature so far. Unfortunately, it is only available on mobile and tablet so those of us who primarily use the desktop app cannot use it. Please include desktop users in the party!

I greatly prefer the experience and UI on the desktop app and I believe it is better suited for adding songs to a queue (as you do in group session).

Discord has this. the API supports it, and they're doing it other places. This is just Spotify being lame

Three years later and we can't suggest this anymore because this already has the necessary votes needed, BUT still nothing has happend to the desktop version... RELEASE IT ALREADY OR ATLEAST IN BETA

So uhh, whats happening?

That fact that this rather massive feature is still after all these years disabled on the desktop app is behond horrible..

If you're supporting it on one platform make sure it works on all of them.

 

Having to go on my phone, create a sessions, invite friends through my phone and than swap to desktop is a horrible UX.

Lucky for us, they develop their software using the Spotify model with small teams of vertically integrated experts allowing in situ component upgrades of new features, so we probably had this 2 years ago, in a timeline where they gave a f$ck... 

It is one of these things where, they must have some reason for not implementing this on desktop, but they are not communicating and we are all left feeling baffled and outraged that they would fail to do this obvious thing for years now, when having it on mobile app. 

So staff, speak up or fix this... Or accept that you are sub par at software development.
