Since some week i experience some trouble scrobbling from spotify web player (Chrome) to Last FM. Can someone help me understand why it does not work? I've tried to disconnect and reconnect my account multiple times. No results.

EARTH TO SPOTIFY!

PLEASE ADD LAST.FM FUNCTIONALITY BACK TO YOUR WEB APPLICATION! YOUR USERS CLEARLY CARE ABOUT IT AND IT'S AN INCREDIBLY SIMPLE THING TO DO!!!

 

How can something so basic be such a challenge for the biggest music streaming service out there!?

Can we get any formal response from you guys or are you going to completely ignore us?!

So, they closed all the loopholes as of today. I was able to change the network settings to fool Chrome (not really, it's a possibility in developer tools) that I'm using IE11 and open Play.spotify.com (the one with the settings and scrobbling) but yesterday it switched back to open.spotify.com, I changed it to IE10 and it worked, but today nothing works. Everything is whether not supported or switches to "open". At work I cannot instal even a chrome addon so don't lead me that way. The only possible way is if there's a webplayer that can login to Spotify and scrobble too. Please let me know if you know any.

P.S. I hate you both, Spotify and Last.fm.

Yep, nothing is working for me, either. None of the addons are working (from the Chrome Web Store). Irritating...guess I will listen on my phone, that works (sometimes).

For what it's worth, this issue is affecting me. The only reason I use Spotify is because of it's Last.fm support.

 

I doubt that Spotify cares, but this is grounds for me to cancel my subscription.

 

I will begin looking today and if I can find another streaming service that offers support for Last.fm, I'm dropping Spotify because the turn around time for major issues like this is pathetic.

 

Web player is garbage now, and it didn't use to be. Additionally, it's harder to search for Music. The font is WAY too big and the details for artists become increasingly inaccurate. 

 

 If Spotify can at least give me a timeline for getting this repaired, I'd consider staying, but I suspect they'll never fix this. Which is a shame, I hate being driven away from products that have good core functionality. The streaming was never a problem for me, it was always the UX.

I have been scrobbling my music on a variety of platform streaming services since 2009. Eight years of scrobbles. Twenty Seven Thousand plus songs and more. If spotify cannot work together with Last.fm to provide scrobble support, then I have to agree, its time to move to a different online streaming service for music that DOES support scrobbles. My scrobbles stopped being tracked by spotify in April 2017. No info from Spotify. The prior page explaining how to connect spotify to last fm suggests options that are *no longer present*. There is no "setting" option. Just "Account". There is no "social" option. The instruction page from Spotify still exists, but the UX has been redesigned and does not provide this step. If Spotify's arrangement with Niland Music means no to Last FM scrobbles, then cya later spotify.

Do not dispair guys, just use the webplayer on chrome and use this plugin. Scrobbles from every music site you can think of.

Switching to Deezer was a great decision for me. Solved this problem and more. Seriously. I can Scrobble, AND I can order my playlists. Stop wasting time on a music app that removed fundamental functionality.

Please let us know if you find other music streaming service as spotify.

 

This issue is also important for me. I am a musician and i need what I have listened to be shared on last.fm so i can find back the tracks.

 

My problem is that I am not admin on my pc so I can not install add-ons or desktop version of spotify. Web version was working fine but with this scrobbling thing not working, I am even considering using youtube..

Temporarty solution if you're using chrome, also a great plugin in general, allows scrobbling from pretty much any music site you can imagine. Great for when I'm checking out new video releases on youtube.

 

When built in scrobbling is working you can disable scrobbling site by site basis on the plugin setting so you don't get duplicate scrobbles.

So first I don't get my Year in Review at all and now Spotify remove Last.FM support on the web player. This is getting ridiculous. I'm a premium user and more and more features are being removed  - what are we actually getting out of it? Nothing.

 

Hurry up and bring it back or revert the player.

Please, just revert the Web App. Sorted.

 

How can it be good idea to remove 70% of the functionality, no reason it can't look 'next gen' and still have a ********** settings menu (or a play queue, or partial albums, or radio, or playlist rearranging...........

 

please

I was switched over to the new version of the web player over the weekend, and lost last.fm support, like most everyone else here, as a result.  Please get this sorted, thanks.  It is incredibly frustrating!

It appears that I also got switched over in Chrome. No last.fm support. Guess I'm stuck using the desktop app for as long as *that* supports last.fm.

Anyone know when this will get fixed?  Also on the web player on chrome and all the settings have been removed....

@SpotifyCares on twitter says, "The option to scrobble isn't on the new web player. Scrobbling is available on the desktop and mobile app."

When pressed for an ETA on when the scrobbling feature will be implemented, they said, "We don't have an exact date yet."  And then, "We're still testing and improving the new web player, so we'll pass this onto the team," which it what like half their tweets say because everyone hates the new webplayer. LOL
