I would never come here usually but if I do it's to moan about updates spotify does again.

 

I am here to address the updated web player spotify did before few days. The player was perfectly alright before I was listening my music enjoy myself every single day but oh wait spotify had to do some changes !!! OF COURSE THEY HAD TO !!!! Now my web player is all bugged refuses to play tracks i have to refresh the page few times sometimes so that it is fixed, I started getting those motherfn' adds every single 5 tracks I play which I was not getting that before few days. I installed adblock on my browser for a darn reason. AND don't tell me the problem is from me. Simply fix your web players or bring back the old version while ur getting the new one fixed.

I agree 100% 

99% of the time I try to listen to a song, I can't. I am furious of this problem.

Hey guys!
While I can't offer you a solution, I can tell you what's going on at least.

The "old" Web Player that you mention was an A/B test of Spotify to bring a more Desktop-like experience to the Web Player. It was tested among a small percentage of users. This test is done now and all those users have been reverted to the "standard" Web Player that everyone else has currently.

There are no infos yet if the test was successful or if it will ever totally replace the standard Web Player. Personally, I agree with you and hope it will come back, since I prefer the UI to the normal Web Player. ;)

I don't care whether this player is, an update OR NOT. The thing is it's causing people problems and we want either to not be bugged or bring us back to the old version. PERIOD!

Just notices also that i cant sort playlists by date added anymore!

WTF - that plus the inability to loop tracks anymore makes me think its time to move services...

I was also recently reverted back to the "old" web player, and I'm not surprised at how shoddy the product is that they are offering to the majority of their users. The player is a joke. Aside from being stripped of any of it's useful features, it barely opens, and when it does, it can't even load playlists or play music. It is a shining example of Spotify's complete design and engineering incompetence. For those hoping Spotify will hear your feedback and actually make improvements, you're kidding yourself. Move on.

I can no longer add songs to playlists and while it was buggy before at least I had the option.
