[Playlists] Official Statement on why spotify doesn't show us the followers on our playlists

[Playlists] Official Statement on why spotify doesn't show us the followers on our playlists

I would like an explicit statement from spotify on why it's not possible or too complicated right now to work on an update that shows us who follows our playlists.

The original idea for that has been shelved since 2013 on "not right now". Yet it is something that a lot of people would like to have, as it has been resubmitted for many more times since then.

Additionaly it would improve and further user interaction. Something i thought spotify would absolutely be in favour of. Seeing who follows our playlists is a great indicator for a similiar taste in music and especially on the specific genre of music in the playlist. This would give us a better way to find more similiar music.

Your algorithm does good work in that regard but it isn't perfect and i think it could profit from that update.

I'm pretty sure this won't meet your requirements for new ideas but i would like to use this opportunity to implore you to reconsider your stance on this subject or atleast give us a statement on why it isn't possible right now. It is something I and many others feel very strongly about.


Thank you
