[Radio] Create New Station button missing

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.

Hey folks,

 

We just wanted to let you know that this is expected behaviour since we rolled out our new Radio feature to all platforms.

 

To find out how the new Radio works, just head over to this thread.

 

Thanks!

I'm having a hard time creating my own radio stations. When I click 'Radio' I cannot find CREATE NEW STATION. Am I missing something?

I'm having the same issue.  I cannot create a new station on my mobile app.  What gives?

Weirdly enough Earthword_Tim I can create a station on mobile (Android) - but not desktop. Are you Mac all the way?

No, I am on Android.  I have a Google Pixel 2 and an Asus Zenbook on which I CAN create a playlist.

I'm having the same problem! Have they taken this function away? I normally use this very regularly and this is the first time I haven't been able to create a new station. This is on both my mobile and laptop and has been for 24 hours now.

I'm having the same issue too. When I choose Artist or Song radio I'm taken to a playlist with no ability to thumbs up or down tracks. I'm really hoping this wasn't an intended change.

yup, me too - have the option on android, not on desktop. Tried on two separate pcs/desktops. 

 

not been with Spotify for long but the speed with which features change/appear/disappear is really annoying

I've found out how to create a radio station again! They've changed it so now you have to search for an artist, then when you're on the artist page there's an option to play their radio station. I have no idea why they've made it more difficult to do this!

the option to play from an artist/album is still there, yup, but vanished from playlists.

 

I've kind of built up my whole Spotify usage based on the ability to listen to playlist Radio stations, so that I can find new tracks that fit in with that mix of music. If this feature is gone it kind of massively devalues Spotify for me :-/

 

It's super frustrating - I moved from Google Play Music as I hoped the social and recommendation aspects were better, but so far it's been a real mixed bag. I still don't fully understand/engage with the difference between 'my songs', my thumbs upped tracks, and the ones I <3 from the auto generated mixes. It's really hard to know how best to use the service, and it's made harder when the features randomly change every other week with no warning.
