[Music] Custom Start & Ending Times for a Track



I'm a big electronic music lover and there is only one feature i would like added to spotify. The option to choose a part of the track i would like to play and have the settings saved.


In the world of electronic music there is almost allways 2-3 minute build ups, and not many radio mixes of each track.


This can be a problem when having a party and a track lasts for 7 minutes with 3 of them is a buildup that not everyone would like to listen to.


It would be nice to have a feature like this that i can change on each track, just drag 2 buttons to a start and end point. and maybe have a 3-5 second fade on where i choose to set them.

Hey folks,


Thanks for coming to the Community, and adding your vote to this idea!


We're keeping this idea as 'Not Right Now', as this isn't something we have any immediate plans to implement. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts.


If we do have any new info to share, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status.




This gets my vote!  I'm a cycling/spinning instructor  and like others have mentioned, there are songs that have intro (or endings) that are too long. My students would lose focus on the boring parts


GREAT IDEA!! I think a lot of people would find this useful.


would love to see this become a reality!


This really should happen, one of the reasons I sporadically still use iTunes. Shouldn't be too hard to implement, right?


I like this idea! Please Spotify! Give the man what WE want


Wud really like this feature too!

This is a brilliant idea and exactly what I need too...What's the update on this guys?


I requested this feature several years ago.  Streaming has replaced downloading and this wasnt a problem back then as there were all sorts of music editors you could simply purchase and download.  Some were even free.  I still use my dbPoweramp today to handle my local files that are tied into my Spotify playlists but stored on my devices memory instead.  I also suggested Spotify let you connect your account to Dropbox or something like that as using your devices memory can be a problem.  There are untrue rumors that this exists, but years of searching has proved otherwise and even Spotify mentioned to me that they know nothing about this.


"Not right now" lol okay. What the **bleep** does the spotify staff actually do? 


"**bleep**" I can't even swear. Cool.
