Sad when I saw this feature removed today. The limited filter and sorting features on Spotify have been quite frustrating. This feature was definitely a step in the right direction. It did not always work perfectly (playing from the genre-filteted tracks wouldn't always fill the queue with songs from that filtered list but rather all liked songs and the lists themselves were not perfectly consistent with the true genres), but overall it was awesome to finally have a fairly accurate genre filter. I hope these filters are brought back and improved upon (additional filters such as release dates, etc would also be very nice).
Hi! I’m an avid spotify music listener, and I absolutely loved having my liked songs filterable by genre. I’m not the best playlist maker, and often just play my liked songs on shuffle, adjusting the queue by deleting whatever songs didn’t fit my mood at the time. Adding the filters allowed me to instantly create my own playlist out of all my liked songs based on the mood I was in, and each genre was already downloaded so I could listen to it anywhere I went! I used the filtered genres so much that I’m struggling to adjust not having it anymore. Spotify please make the filtered liked songs permanent, I miss it already!
Loved this feature. Realized it was a test for the feature only after it disappeared because I wondered where it went. I constantly wished a feature like this existed so I could listen to my music depending on my mood (or the moods of others since people live in the house with me). And then it magically appeared one day!
It makes it easy to better tailor my liked songs which has so many different artists and tastes that I find myself constantly skipping songs to get to ones I’m in the mood for.
This feature let me skip the skipping and allowed more time for listening to preferred tunes on short drives. I’d definitely vouch for this becoming a permanent feature and don’t really see a downside to it since you can choose not to have any genre filters selected at any time.
Spotify is often testing and launching improvements and new features. This means that you might see something on the app that your friend doesn’t, or you could get a new feature to try out temporarily.
It’s great to hear that you liked using the Moods & Genre Filter in this test; I recommend voting for this Live Idea regarding being able to sort music in Your Library by Genre, as @osornioshas suggested. You can also read about how feedback on Ideas reaches Spotify here.
Thank you all for your feedback and comments regarding this test!
