[Web Player] Friend Activity on web player

Bring the Friend Activity feature where you can see what your Spotify friends have been listening to the past couple of hours from the desktop app to the web player.

Also put it in a reserved area or button so that I don't have to make the window suuuuuuper wider just to see the feed on the side.


This has been requested before but I still think there is enough interest for this to get more than 100 kudos.


That's how the Friend Activity pane looks on the desktop client:

The web client does miss this Friend Activity view:

I'm someone who rarely uses the desktop app, but I like to see what my friends are currently listening to. I use Spotify almost exclusively through the mobile app and web player, but friend activity is not currently supported on either platform. Due to limitations on software installation, I can only use the web player while at work and it's very disappointing that the web player has such limited features, despite me being a premium member.

Your idea was submitted a while ago and unfortunately didn't receive the amount of kudos needed to stay active in the ideas board (100 Kudos per year). 

In order to keep the Ideas Exchange clearer I'll close this idea for now, but this doesn't mean Spotify rejected this idea.

If you think this is an idea which needs to be implemented, you're welcome to post it in a slightly different form 🙂


Have a nice day!

I think this is a great idea because the friend activity has been a big part of how I use the app. However the spotify app keeps crashing and not connecting to wifi (this is a common issue there are blog articles and forums about it). I have reinstalled and checked my firewall. Even had a new laptop. It seems webplayer is the new base of operations ://.


I much prefer the web player but sadly cannot see friend activity there. +1 from me for this idea.


@Katerina sorry for my late response.

My idea is regarding to the web player.


I have added screenshots to make it more clear what I am talking about.

Do you need more information?


Please let me know how I can drive this idea further.
