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

Status: Not Right Now

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.

Updated on 2019-03-19

Hey!

 

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 https://community.spotify.com/t5/iOS-iPhone-iPad/Touch-Preview-on-iOS-removal/td-p/1857905.

 

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.

Cheers!

Please bring it back!!! It’s so hard to make playlists now when I have so many songs to rifle through, and it honestly makes the add songs feature entirely pointless now because you can’t even listen to the songs it suggests! It’s definitely been a turning point for some people in deciding to stop using Spotify, and it may become one for me as well.

Awful update. Bring back the preview feature. Im switching to youtube music.

Years later and I still miss this feature. It made it really easy when I'm looking for a specific song and can't remember the name or if I just want to quickly zoom through a playlist to see which songs are worth doubling back for, etc. No other music app ever replicated this feature. What a bummer.

Echoing those before me. Literally just logged in to Spotify after years with Apple Music. I switched specifically because this feature was removed.
