Yes this is broken today. Every day something else is broken. Can you people not write a single test for your software to ensure things aren't constantly constantly CONSTANTLY broken?

I only really use the radio function on Spotify. Been thinking about cancelling premium as I can just get the same thing at Last FM for free anyway. Thinking a lot more seriously about it now Spotify seem to be making it harder than ever to use the radio function. Also you seem to get a tiny amount of songs on Spotify radio before they start to repeat, unlike Last FM.

As someone who is new to Spotify this is disappointing. Sorry to hear this :-( And there I was thinking I was missing something!

Yeah it's gone for me too. The "Artist Radio" is also taking me to a playlist. I've lost the ability on mobile too. I'm on a Windows PC, Samsung Galaxy S9+ for mobile.

That function has been removed. I have chatted with the technical support and they have answered this (in Spanish, it´s my language):

"Actualmente la función de Radio ha sido removida, por lo que al reproducir la opción de Ir a radio del artista, se crea automáticamente una playlists de aproximadamente 50 canciones de artistas similares. Sin embargo, podrás encontrar algunas estaciones de radio que has usado anteriormente en el panel izquierdo de la app en tu computadora, en la función Radio (justo bajo Inicio y Explorar)."

Also missing for me on PC and Android apps. 

THIS IS A DISGRACE! 

I've been a premium subscriber for years and the Radio - particularly Playlist Radio - features are the most useful things about Spotify.

Yesterday I talked to chat with Spotify technical support, and they told me this:

 

Actualmente la función de Radio ha sido removida, por lo que al reproducir la opción de Ir a radio del artista, se crea automáticamente una playlists de aproximadamente 50 canciones de artistas similares. Sin embargo, podrás encontrar algunas estaciones de radio que has usado anteriormente en el panel izquierdo de la app en tu computadora, en la función Radio (justo bajo Inicio y Explorar).

 ---------------------

Currently the Radio function has been removed, so when playing the option Go to radio of the artist, a playlist of approximately 50 songs by similar artists is automatically created. However, you can find some radio stations that you have previously used in the left panel of the app on your computer, in the Radio function (just under Start and Explore).

 

Spotify, are you playing with your users? I am a premium user, and I don’t like Spotify to play with me.

Seriously? "The Radio function has been removed"?  Since Spotify is a service I pay for, and the radio function is the primary way I use it, I think the next thing to be removed will be my Spotify subscription.  Logged into Pandora yesterday for the first time in years to start a Premium trial; the current Windows desktop app for Pandora is terrible, but at least the radio features still work...
