Missing features in Pakistan

safisaleem

Just got Spotify Premium in Pakistan and here is a list of the features that are missing in the app (Android):

 

1. No podcasts: The podcast section is simply missing in the app.

2. No lyrics: You can not swipe up on a playing song at all, so there is no lyrics card or artist message card.

3. No Artist feeds: On the home page, right next to the settings icon, the thunderbolt icon which takes you to the artist feed page is missing.

 

Would really appreciate if Spotify Pakistan could provide a timeline on the missing features. Great to have you here!

Unfortunately right now podcasts and lyrics are not available in Pakistan. However, Spotify is always working to improve the app.

 

Lyrics are currently available in a few countries and is not a global feature at this time.

 

Artist feed may be a feature in testing. It is not a standard feature that has been released. You can find more info about feature testing here:

Hi there!

I'm not exactly sure, but in this Community Blog, it shows all the new countries Spotify will be on- and Pakistan is on the list. I'm guessing this means new features are still in the process of being added. 

 

The only thing I can recommend at the moment is to wait a bit, until Spotify sorts out a few things.

 

Of course, I could be wrong, and there could be other reasons, but I thought thi was the most reasonable theory (I have a very vivid imagination)

 

Hope this helps!
