Here's an idea...tell me why I should stay with Spotify.

Here's an idea...tell me why I should stay with Spotify.

I've been a premium user for years and I have seen this platform slowly, surely and unapologetically stripped of all functions that made this an enjoyable music service to use.

 

I pay $120 a year and can no longer share a song with my friend

I pay $120 a year and can no longer have a conversation with other users about the things you make your $$ off of,...us and music.

I pay $120 a year and can no longer see who follows me or who follows my playlists.

I pay $120 a year and can no longer rely on any notification system within the app.
I pay $120 a year and can no longer search through third-party apps for great music.

I pay $120 a year and can no longer rate songs or see other people's opinions of songs.

I pay $120 a year and can no longer see lyrics

I pay $120 a year and can no longer search for my friends in the search bar. I have to type in some code to get it to work.

I pay $120 a year and can no longer believe your business model of creating "personalized ways of finding great music."

I used to feel that some of the changes were removed also, however i found that some features were just moved, hopefully, some of this can add value to your membership. 

Sharing songs: 

- Click the "more" button at the end of the track on your selected device

  1. Start playing music.
  2. Tap the Now Playing bar at the bottom of the screen.
  3. See the song’s lyrics and their story!

    Tip: If you don’t see it, the lyrics/story aren’t available for that song.
  4. Tap the lyrics view to switch to the cover art view.

No, it hasn't solved the issue of being able to "share" songs with friends. There's a whole message chain devoted to how this is a pain to do now. Spotify hasn't responded to the continuous requests to explain why they got rid of the inbox feature either - no one is buying the money-saving argument.

So, in a nutshell, if you don't wish to link your Spotify to twitter, facebook, etc., then you're stuck with copying a link, then going to your email or inbox and typing there. It's not efficient and not user-friendly.

At least you can see who follows you now, but still, if you go to a playlist and want to see who is following that list, you can't. That's the important information. I want to know who is following what lists.

 

Community chat - finding message boards is confusing on your website. Period. They're all over the place and hidden at time.

 

Are lyrics available on computer? I don't see it.
