[Mobile] See all Songs on Artist Page

Dear spotify,

 

First of all, thanks for your awesome service! I really enjoy my premium account on my desktop and iPhone version and use it at home and wherever I go. However there's something that bothers me often while searching for a song, especially on the iPhone version.

  

I often search for a song of a specific artist. So I use the search function and reach the artist's page. Once there, the app only shows the 5 most popular songs of the artist. But often the song I'm looking for is not listed there (maybe nr 6 on the list or lower). Now I have the option of searching through the albums, which can be quite time consuming, or try to use the search function again and hope to find it with a more specific combination of words (provided that I know anything more than the artist's name).

 

Now every time I get to this I'm thinking why can't I tap a button ('see all songs') which allows me to see all the artist's songs in a list? That is something I'm looking for intuitively. On the desktop version, the list of 5 can be extended to 10 most popular, but also here I'm thinking: why only 10?! Actually, the list I'm looking for can be brought up by the app already by playing the first song (while not in shuffle mode) and tapping the playlist icon. This brings up the kind of list I would like to see: all the artists songs I can just browse through. Only now I'm playing the first song, which I didn't want to hear at all.

 

Preferably, I would want to be albe to sort the list in order of popularity or alphabet.

 

 

Cheers!

Just wait couple more years for this to be implemented 👌

ARG! I was just prohibited from using the downloaded Spotify Desktop App at work - not even allowed the web-based lite app - so I am stuck with either listening on my mobile or the webplayer and both of these platforms SUCK compared to the desktop app. 

Top Gripes:

1) Cannot shuffle all tracks within playlist folders;

2) Cannot view all of an artist's tracks from the artist page. Forced to look through all their albums to find the track I'm looking for and cannot shuffle all artist tracks (without dumping them all into a new playlist, which is STUPID).

If a feature is available for desktop, PLEASE make it available on the web, mobile and lite apps, too. 

Your database can handle it. I AM A VERY DISGRUNTLED PREMIUM USER RIGHT NOW.

How the heck is it possible that this SIMPLE and kinda important feature hasn't been developed yet???

It really is a shame!

Shame on you Spotify, shame on you!

"Now I have the option of searching through the albums, which can be quite time consuming..." 

Guess what, they just took the functionality of going through an artist's songs as list from the desktop version!

Now we have to go album by album to find a song in the desktop app. Unbelievable.

 

So, don't expect it happen on the mobile version.

What t f is going on. This is the worst update ever. This makes it a challange rather than an enjoyment to discover artists and find tracks.

The reason I liked spotify was the ability to see all the songs in the albums when I went to the artist page. With the new format, I have to go into each album individually to see the songs. This is way too time consuming and is making me less interested in using spotify. Go back to the old format where you could scroll and see the songs. Making users dig for information only creates frustration.

When we go to an artist's page, I would like to see all their songs and not just the 5 most popular. Sometimes I'm looking for a specific song that isn't "popular" and it's inconvenient on the app to look for it because i can't see all the artist's songs. I remember this feature used to be available years ago and they removed it. 

 

I know this option is available in the search criteria but it's a hassle to do it when you're already on the artist's page.

If I can't view all songs by an artist on a single page by the end of 2021, I'm 100% unsubscribing.  You were fools to remove this.

I'm amazed this doesn't exist yet - It's such a basic feature request & can't possibly be that difficult to implement!
