[Desktop][Other] Desktop client clean and improved!

Hey Rorey and the ''team'', i have a suggestion for you! Since you want to make the client ''cleaner'' and make ''improvements'' (Like notifications and lyrics gone) i suggest you do the following:

1-remove the play button

2-remove playlists

3-Remove the album artwork

4-Remove the volume control

5-Remove the music

Voila!

The client will be so ''clean'' and ''improved'', right?

It sometimes seems like they're on the way there 😃

It's a bit sad, I used to be curious about the changes when a new client update was installed, to see whether there was anything new and nice. Now, every time there's an update, I'm concerned whether another feature that I liked has been removed.

 

Here is a little list I made of client features that I used a lot, and which have been removed in the time since I've been a Premium member:

 

  • Favourites/Starred tracks
  • Search on artist pages
  • Global playlist search
  • Aggregate playlist folder view
  • Playlist update markers
  • List of followers
  • Sharing with non-Facebook friends
  • Setting custom cache location
  • Limiting cache size
  • Desktop client apps
  • Copying track titles to clipboard
  • Adjustable column widths
  • New release notifications
  • Playlist update notifications
  • Private messaging
  • Lyrics

I can really start seeing other people's point that all together, these should almost warrant a reduction in the subscription fee, because the options offered to users are not at all what they used to be when I signed up.

 

Edit (2016-12-14): Updated the list with more recently removed features.
Edit (2017-03-16): Updated to reflect that messaging is gone. Volume control, skip track button, and playlists next, guys! =D

Hehe. And then they can make all music playback based on one of their holy algorithms that knows better than the user.

 

1. Open Spotify

2. Wait for algorithm based music selection to start playing

3. Convince yourself "this music is really good, it has been selected especially for me by the allmighty algorithm"
