Yeah it’s like Spotify is like “hey so we lied to you to make you sign up with us and now we’re gonna throw you all under the bus... psych! That was the real lie! Hahahahaha haha you’ll never know what to expect with us here at Spotify MWA HA HA HA HA!”
Well I’m glad that we have more time with this experience. It’s been great to enjoy music this way and the sunset hasn’t finished yet. So might as well appreciate what we all have still. The best of all worlds.
I think it would be a good idea for Spotify to purchase Serato’s Pyro. At least for the automixing capabilities, along with Spotify’s Group Session mode I think it would be a wonderful synergy to the session experience. The interface / gestures of bubbling songs up to the top of a queue is great too especially when you have a drink in one hand and your phone in the other.
DJay really enhances the Spotify experience bur that would be a bit of a stretch to replicate. I hope they consider all the feedback from this forum.
The problem there is a, that turntable and djay are very very different apps resulting in very different end products for your mixing. And b, the ceo of turntable has also released statements saying their very disappointed with this Spotify decision.
“ Of Spotify's change in policy regarding DJing apps, Pacemaker CEO Jonas Norberg says in a new blog post: “Spotify has been a great partner and we're saddened by the news, but we of course respect their business decision”.May 14, 2020”
I don’t respect their “business decision” personally. It’s kinda like when the **bleep** moved to gas instead of bullets because it would cost less. Great business decision guys.
I have no idea why it’s still working after all this build up.. it’s almost like they didn't realise how many **bleep** off people there are hoping they get sued if they do drop support for so many people that were giving them money for premium subs..
I have moved to tidal. I tried moving to soundcloud go, and although soundcloud is great for new, underground, unsigned or u heard of music, it was a really bad user interface and lacks a **bleep** of a lot of normal music. Tidal has all of my music Spotify has (give or take a few tracks which don’t exist) and as a music streaming service, it is geared up around current mainstream music (if you search for say a funk playlist it brings up a load of west coast rap artists for example)
The downside to tidal is djay pro and serato can’t analyse your library, and will only do so on a track by track basis as you play them. There’s a workaround with auto mix however
I’ve used the tidal 3 month free trial algoriddim give and I am binning Spotify off by the end of the month as it’s completely worthless to me now. I feel sorry for algoriddim because Spotify integration was a huge selling point, but great they teamed up with tidal to get a 3 month trial for Djay pro users!
In all honesty, I’m not missing Spotify at all, tidal is great and you can tell it’s going to only get better. I took advantage of the 3 month offer but I can tell you right now Spotify will never receive another penny from me. I’ll still stick around on here to read all the hate sent Spotify’s way though😂
