Problem scrobbling to last f,

I too am unable to scrobble now using the Spotify Web Player. The option for last.fm authentication seems to be missing from the new settings interface as well, and the official Spotify help document for last.fm integration is not up to date with the new UI.

Also having the same issue with Firefox since the update to the web player-- doesn't look like scrobbling is an option anymore. I was still successfully scrobbling up until the day the web player updated.

I have been having this issue for well over a month. I've tried tweeting for the Spotify help staff, but they don't seem to understand what scrobbling is, let alone the fact there's no option to enable it on the new webplayer UI.

 

Very frustrating. Why was scrobbling removed?

I've seen a bunch of people say this. I still have the "Scrobble to Last.fm" option available under the settings for my account. Are you using free Spotify?  I wonder if that could be the difference...

The difference is this relates to the web player. There is no 'settings' menu there, and scrobbles just don't happen.

I understand that. I'm using the web-player, myself. In my instance of the web-player, there is a "gear" icon in the lower left corner of the page that if you click on it takes you to the settings. Under there is a "Scrobble to Last.fm" option. 

 

As for scrobbles not happening, I ended up switching to Firefox for the time being and scrobbling seems to be fine there. I might try using Chromium again today and see if they ever fixed this issue.

How peculiar. The cog icon disappeared when the web player moved to its current version. Its absence explains most of the people in this thread!

 

Then again as a Chromebook user I'm unable to test using other browsers, so can't comment on whether it's a Chrome-only issue.

Oh weird... I wonder why I'm not seeing the same version of the web player. I'm using Chromium and Firefox on Debian Linux. I wonder if it could be a regional thing? I'm in the USA and have not seen my web-player change.

 

Edit: From a bit more research, it sounds like I might not yet be switched to the new web player (thank goodness?). I'm going to be pretty upset when I get switched over and there is no last.fm support.

I have Spotify premium and after the webplayer update I'm not able to see scrobbles anymore. Everything seems to be working fine when listening using the desktop/mobile app.

This problem is happening in Chrome under Arch Linux and there is no option related to last.fm in the new interface...

😞

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
