My Question or Issue

I hear rumours that Spotify will no longer be integrated with Algoriddim djay from 1st July 2020 onwards, is this true?  What are you able to tell me about this?  Do you have plans to integrate with any other DJ software (e.g. Serato, Rekordbox etc.) in the future?

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for reaching out and voicing your concerns.

We can confirm that throughout 2020 Spotify will cease to be playable through 3rd party DJ apps. It's possible that for some users the service remains active a while longer, however it's not officially supported and we can't guarantee that it'll function properly. We always take retiring features in Spotify very seriously and we’re pouring our energy into new ways of creating the best experience for our users. We'll share any news on the matter on this page, as soon as there are any. 

 

In the meantime, you can post an idea on our board that requests that the integration with 3rd party DJ apps gets reintroduced. You can learn how do to this here. The Idea Exchange is a great way for us to see how popular a certain idea is with our users and helps us constantly improve the app. You can learn more about it here.

 

Hope you find this useful. Keep us posted if you have any questions.

Hello again from France, Tidal in test mode :

Interactions with Djay

- Switching all my playlists with Tunemymusic (14725 songs) took a while but the result is impressive : 98%

- Tidal integration is perfect, songs are loading fast, sound quality is very good

- All my CUE that i made with Spotify are here (and I make a lot...), that's a very good news.

 

Tidal :

+ It's almost the same, very similar as Spotify. Music discovery is a bit different, I will get used to it but I found a lot of tracks with the suggestions a the end a a playlist, it's very useful and less redondant than in Spotify.

- No more playlist of the week and access to many playlists that i used too, +I'll adapt.

After transferring music from Spotify, play your music from either Tidal or Soundcloud, whichever you transferred to. I find that some particular mixes and versions of songs I chose are not the same! Also, I created many playlists from spotify in Djay’s program. Will these tracks be automatically recognized from Soundcloud or Tidal after Spotify is gone??? That is a MUST for Algoriddim... to make sure that these songs are not just greyed out or disappear totally.

Spotify is now in the process of creating their own DJ app.

Thanks for this. Seamless transfer and 99% transfer. See ya Spotify and thanks for making me change as opposed to making it easier for us to stay. Opening the door for competition is a crazy option regardless of future plans. 

The alternative is take your customer on a journey and give them insights or teasers of the bold future. Inspire them to keep loving. Don't pull the rug out without a thanks or bye your leave. So sad 😭

Go to tunemymusic and transfer all your playlists to anywhere else. 

I did mine to Tidal yesterday. 17k songs moved and better sound quality. 

 

Such a shame that Spotfy and forgotten about it's dj peeps.

This a good example for a bad business decision. I moved 7 years ago from iTunes to Spotify exactly for the reason to get the support of add on apps like DJ Pro; now Spotify becomes as arrogant as iTunes and probably looses a lot of supporters and wouldn‘t get as much new customers as it could. If it stops the support for those app without „any“ solution for its customers, very bad... could get worse in the future. I‘ll check out other solutions as many others of the community who posted here their frustration, and certainly not recommending Spotify anymore as I always did in the past. Stupid mistake by management...

Since Spotify could not buy DJAY, they apparently decided to cut ties and create their own DJ program... to come.
That is my guess!

Spotify, please sit down and make a deal with Djay and don't do this silly thing. Or at least build your own DJ app.

How can we vote so that this integration continues with DJay software?

As you can see, a lot of users of spotify and DJAY software will be affected, as we rely a lot on Spotify.

When you switch to Tidal, you lose the Echo Nest and the hundreds and hundreds of unique genres that Spotify has.
