[Your Library] Bring back 'hold to preview song' button

A few years ago Spotify had a feature that allowed you to hold down on a song and it would give a 10-15 second sample of the song.

 

I used to discover so many new/different artists as it gave me a chance to preview a song before committing to listening to the full thing.

 

It was later removed (I think in 2016?) and I enquired at the time and they said it was so they could implement another feature in the app using the hold down feature.

 

We're in 2021 now, five years later and no such feature has been introduced.

 

Can we please have the hold to preview feature back? It was such a good niche feature, and it gave a one up on apple music.
