[Radio] Create New Station button missing

Plan

Premium

Country

USA

Platform

Windows 10

 

On the Radio screen, I used to be able to create a new station by clicking the Create New Station button, as described here in the documentation.  But that button has disappeared from the page, and there does not appear to be any other way to create a new station.

Also missing for me on PC and Android apps. 

THIS IS A DISGRACE! 

I've been a premium subscriber for years and the Radio - particularly Playlist Radio - features are the most useful things about Spotify.

Yesterday I talked to chat with Spotify technical support, and they told me this:

 

Actualmente la función de Radio ha sido removida, por lo que al reproducir la opción de Ir a radio del artista, se crea automáticamente una playlists de aproximadamente 50 canciones de artistas similares. Sin embargo, podrás encontrar algunas estaciones de radio que has usado anteriormente en el panel izquierdo de la app en tu computadora, en la función Radio (justo bajo Inicio y Explorar).

Currently the Radio function has been removed, so when playing the option Go to radio of the artist, a playlist of approximately 50 songs by similar artists is automatically created. However, you can find some radio stations that you have previously used in the left panel of the app on your computer, in the Radio function (just under Start and Explore).

 

Spotify, are you playing with your users? I am a premium user, and I don’t like Spotify to play with me.

Seriously? "The Radio function has been removed"?  Since Spotify is a service I pay for, and the radio function is the primary way I use it, I think the next thing to be removed will be my Spotify subscription.  Logged into Pandora yesterday for the first time in years to start a Premium trial; the current Windows desktop app for Pandora is terrible, but at least the radio features still work...

I have the same problem with the removal of the search bar option in stations. I have even tried to go to an artist and create a station from the artist page to add to my stations list but this doesn’t seem to work either. Reiterating what has already been stated, this was the best feature of Spotify and with the removal has made this unusable.

It would be great to get some clarity about what is going on with radio functionality, as its behavior seems to have changed for lots of users on lots of platforms.

  • The "Create New Station" option has disappeared from the Radio screen.
  • The "Go to [Artist/Album/Song]" menu option now directs to a 50 song public playlist, instead of to a radio station.

Is this a bug? Is this a temporary change while some technical changes are in the works? Is this Spotify's way of phasing out the radio functionality? We would love to get some clarity on how and why this functionality is changing.

Om using Androids version premium. I also can't add station either. I can create new radio base on album song or artist but then I can only follow those radio. And they will only show in the playlist I'm the library, not in the station section... So confusing. I remember I used to able to create radio and add it in the station.

I have chatted with the support and they have confirmed that "Radio" and "Stations" will be deleted. Only artists will be able to create stations, users will not be able to do so. But the "stations" will only be a playlist with songs. A normal playlist of 50 songs. The "artists" and "stations" menu is temporary and will be deleted.

Another functionality that Spotify eliminates.

This problem is occurring in Desktop and Mobile on mac OS and iOS as well.
