[Running] Bring back Running

Or at least give us a good reason for retiring it! It's my number one go to.

Hey everyone, thank you for bringing your feedback to the Spotify Idea Exchange. 

As we mentioned in our Community post, we always take retiring features in Spotify very seriously. Please be assured we’re pouring our energy into new ways of creating the best experience for our users.

 

Also know you can still workout with Spotify as your Running companion. You can find Running playlists in the Workout section of Browse section. You can also connect your Spotify running music with an exercise app. Check out our support articles on Nike+ Run Club and Runkeeper for more information.

 

If you’re interested to learn more about how the app evolves, check out our article about testing and why features change.

 

Of course if there are any updates around this we will let you all know here. Thanks!

Spotify, so you want me to download additional apps so I can have the feature you previously offered in one package? I see regression not progression. I'm about to drop you.

The lack of transparency as to why is just salt in the wounds. Your explanation is no explanation at all.

@Meredith, this is the same non-answer I got from your support staff and we saw in the 'Running Retirement' announcement. Give us a real answer!

What other apps are out there for runners that compared. I’m ready to quite paying premium with Spotify since they don’t have that feature anymore. Who wants my money? Running this morning with the 150-160 tempo option was a killer...my pace is way slower than normal.

I have started using Rock my Run app. It allows me to adjust the bpm of
some of the playlists. Definitely do not have all the features figured out
yet.

This is very dissapointing especially for long term customer like me. Will look for alternatives.

Thats really a desaster. The remaining so called "running"-playlists are so wide-ranged in pace that they are not useable. No chance to fast-switch between paces when doing interval-training. "Running" was the main reason I choose Spotify, so I just subscribed to my test-phase at Apple Music.
