What does that mean?

The way I see it, it is a binary system:

* You will bring back

* You won't bring back

 

Seems you keep trying a third option "you don't bring back, but don't want to tell us you won't bring back".. and that, as far as I am concerned, is the worst option as it gives the impression that you are not only ignoring your users, but acting disingenuous.

 

So, can we please get a straight answer?  (yes / no)  the feature will (be / not be) brought back

Removing this feature makes absolutely no sense! Some of the songs Spotify has put on my Daily Mix are so annoying - if Daily Mix is supposed to be tailored to your preferences, why would you remove a feature that allows you to continue doing this?

Hi,

 

I'm a new user (opened a FREE account just yesterday).

I am generally a fan of having (owning) my music, exactly in order to have control of what I listen to (i.e. listen to what I like/not listen to what I dislike - life's too short for anything else), so I was always wary of Spotify.

 

But never did I think a DISLIKE feature would be missing (let alone be purposefully removed).

Let alone that Spotify would be doing its best to sugar coat it/ outright hide this fact: no DISLIKE button (on DAILY MIX playlists at least - already got that...).

 

Moreover, since 2016 (TWENTY SIXETEEN!!!), cust.serv.reps. have been deliberately confusing (when they were supposed to help them) users about it by serving them all sorts of half-truths ("we are testing new things") + fake concern + outright lies ("it will come back", "the buttons ARE there!", etc.)

 

Finally,  I found some "official" confirmation about it: "Spotify Staff will look into this idea once it reaches the necessary amount of votes".

Well, tell you what Spotify:

"1. I will look into the idea of migrating to Spotify when you reach the necessary amount of consideration & professionalism towards your users!
2. I will look into the idea of buying a membership when the necessary amount of pigs fly!
3. You should look into the idea of changing your headquarters & staff (to totalitarian China, or some third world dictatorship). As it is, you bring shame on Sweden, Swedes & the fabulous Swedish customer care, famous worldwide. And yes, I do know what I am talking about - I live in Norway, and interact with Swedish products & firms everyday!"

Until then, it's back to iTunes, Google Play, Tidal & 7digital.
