My Question or Issue

 I like to use the playlist radio feature to find new songs for my playlist, but recently I can't find the option anymore on my computer. I used to just press the ellipses to the right of the 'play/pause' button on the playlist, then I would press the 'go to playlist radio' button. But now I don't see that option, while I do still it on my android phone. Where is it?

Hey folks,

 

We just wanted to let you know that we have rolled out a new Radio experience to all users. 

 

To find out more about how the new Radio works, head on over to this thread, where we've given a breakdown of the feature, as well as including a link for leaving any feedback that you might have about the feature.

 

Thanks!

My Question or Issue

 Since two days I'm not able to create an album radio out of my album list. I used to right-click the album name and choose "Gehe zu Album-Radio" ("go to album-radio") and it worked fine for me! But since monday this option doesn't create a real radio, it just gives me a playlist called Radio without the possibilites provided by a real radio stream (thumbs up/down for songs, hearing music without time limit). Now I have to manually create the radio I want, which is very uncomfortable!

Is this a general Spotify-Problem at the moment or am I able to do anything to solve it? Would be great if this "go to"-option would be work again as it's meant to do.

I even made a screenshot to visualize what I mean.

Same here. What bothers me more is the missing "go to playlist radio" entry in the contextmenu when clicking on a playlist.

Same here, the option to 'go to playlist radio' has disappeared.

Seriously Spotify, I'm getting **bleep** off by these unanouced changes. When will you consider to respect your customers (premium user here) and stop removing feature that are used ?
Care to explain ?

How do I create a station based on a playlist now?

Hey @PelleChevelle

 

What version of Spotify are you on? I'm on 1.0.95 and I'm able to go to playlist radios.

You can see the version in Spotify: menu dots - Help - About Spotify.

 

I suggest reinstalling your Spotify client, follow this article for guidance. Maybe it's just a hiccup. :)

 

Let me know how you get on!

My desktop version is 1.0.95.289.g342899da. This option is gone for me in both the PC desktop app and the Android app. 

 

This is really strange as I can still access the artist and song radios through their relevant menus. I found a workaround for now: if you go to Stations in the menu, unfollow any Stations that you follow, then a button will appear, 'Create a new station', that will allow you to do a search for a playlist.

 

I hope this is just a bug because this is one of my most used features!

I took a look into the Stations menu as well. The 'Create new station' appears when every followed station is unfollowed.

However, you can create a new station in the Radio menu too, without having to unfollow things:

playlistradios.PNGIn the Radio menu you'll see this 'Create New Station' button which opens the search tab on the right.

Are you on Free or Premium?

 

Let me know how you get on :)
