[iOS][Discover] Restore Touch Preview on iOS App

Touch preview removal on last iOS vers. update looks like it hasn't been a great idea. You are on time to restore it, one of the best Spotify features.

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


This feature was originally removed from the app due to low engagement. There was a statement at the time which you can check out at


We're keeping this idea as 'Not Right Now', as it's not something we have any immediate plans to add back onto the app.


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



It's disappointing to see Touch Preview removed from iOS, especially after the promise of its expansion to Android and other platforms. It's true that its low usage might have been due to inadequate promotion and incomplete implementation across major mobile apps. Had it been rolled out to Android as planned, more users could have discovered and appreciated its unique capabilities. Touch Preview was a standout feature that set Spotify apart, and its removal feels like a step backward. Reinstating it would be greatly appreciated by many users.

Thank you for your comment on a very very old post. I don’t use free I pay. But thank you anyhow
You’re a few years out on this one, there used to be a feature where you
could hold done on a song and it would preview play it, amazing feature but
Spotify removed it. I’ve been premium for years and years ##- Please type
