Can't find settings for private mode on new web player

Hi!

 

I can't find the settings for Private Session on the new Spotify Web player! Please help!

 

Hey there @Jaelan!

Thanks for reaching out to us on the Spotify Community.
We hope you're well 🙂

There's recently been an update, and a few changes have been made to the web player.
The team here are still working hard on things, so we appreciate your feedback on this. We'll pass this directly on.

You can still use this feature on the app in the meantime, just check out: https://support.spotify.com/using_spotify/search_play/how-to-enable-private-listening/.

Let us know if there's any other questions 🙂

Best,


/M

It's awkward when people knows what you are listening right now.

It's still not done if the team were "still working hard on" it, it is taking surprisingly long...

It's been almost a year, any update?

This needs to be added back to the web app. Like, ASAP. I know you guys base idea importance on votes, but I just discovered the Spotify Community feature and I've been a longtime listener (pretty much since it became available in the U.S.). So I wouldn't have known to go vote for an idea like that. I guarantee that every single person that uses the web app (people like me that aren't permitted to download apps to their work computers) would be in favor of this.

@Vilkki Yep, I know! The good thing is I have the desktop app and I turned off the "Publish my activity on Spotify" and "Show my current Top Artists". So with private mode on, it's a plus. 

 

@gabe2012  A very long time... It seems like they forgot about it.

 

@gabe2012 No update. It's the same and Spotify has been updated several times...

 

@twwasson I agree. I use the app more on my old computer because the desktop app crashes my PC.

Will this be fixed anytime soon? My daughter playing children's music all day is slowly ruining my 'Algorithm' that has adapted perfectly to my sophisticated taste in music over the years =P

I'm considering canceling my spotify subscription because of this. The fact that this was changed to non-issue, and then fed us **bleep**, is absolutely despicable. The app gets worse and worse, the browser has no support, and now I'm starting to get ads even though I pay specifically not to have them. Finding it really hard to justify spending the money each month, time to start looking elsewhere for music apps I guess.

Its frustrating because this used to be a feature the web player supported, but now they are making people beg for it on the idea exchange, it gets less than 100 votes, so they close it and make people re-post it. Pathetic PR from Spotify, I really don't understand why companies do **bleep** like removing quality features and then telling their paying customers to STFU.
