Spotify widget gone?

  • I just noticed that the Spotify widget has disappeared from my homescreen.  I thought I had removed it by accident, but when I checked the widgets, I noticed that it has disappeared there as well. Does anyone else have the same problem or is it just me?

I'm experiencing the same thing. I'd really like to get some more info on what's going on. Hopefully it's not gone for good!

This happened with the Starbucks widget a few months ago... If you put the Spotify icon on the home screen you can long press it to get more options. I am really upset if they are doing this with all the widgets! Especially with Spotify. The widget was VERY useful.

Argh. Terrible idea! Originally switched fram Tidal to Spotify because Tidal removed the widget. Now I don't know what service to change to 😡

  1. Personally I think removing the widget is really a bad idea because it just came out of the blue and we haven't been notified on beforehand. There should at least have been a good, working alternative before removal and thus it's really user-unfriendly. Why removing something that worked perfectly and probably satisfied most users? I'm about to leave Spotify soon if there's no satisfying alternative coming soon...
