[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.


Made a quick illustration on what i mean. Spotify proposition.jpg

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 feature would basically make the whole dance industry switch from ballroom beats to your platform. Ballroom beats has a huge market segment and charges $15 for simple ballroom dance themed playlists. basically the songs are just clipped versions of common songs. The studios will actually use spotify for teaching as well. highly suggest this for a market segment penetration



Start coding NOW! 


F this voting system. This won’t go viral. 


- must be shareable with friends (the edited playlists)

- skip intros is just as important as FULL EDITS 

- I’m selling my “DJ” decks when this feature drops 


Carn developers!


Get to werk 


Spotify needs to do this. Playing songs at an athletic event means I need to know which part of every song is the part for the 30 second timeout! IT WOULD BE AMAZING TO DO THIS AHEAD IF TIME. iTunes used to do this!



This would enable me to use spotify when creating music quizes for my friends! Put this to the top of your backlog! 


Is there any new info for this request since October? This feature seems to exist for developers but not end users. The Tiki Torch playlist by Spotify uses custom start and end times on nearly every song in the playlist. Would love to have this feature for my playlists.


How are there 31 pages of comments and other pages requesting this, yet it hasn't been made an added feature yet? It's such a deterrent for so many users from so many songs. 


I wish they could at least be transparent about this feature. 

 Spotify, what does it  take to get access to this feature? 


this needs to be done
