This is the only reason I use Spotify and accept the premium subscription price. There's no reason for me to keep using this app without it. Your current "running" playlists are trash, to put it bluntly. Bring the running feature back or I'm out.
But why? And without any notice? I restarted my phone, deleted and redownloaded the app, and lost 20 minutes of working time. And then had to run to one of your playlists, which was full of... well, music that was decidedly not empowering for me to run to.
Your reasons why do not give any reasons, other than sometimes you delete features. That is not a reason.
I'll echo the others: no warning was quite rude, and this is the only reason I pay for a Spotify account.
If you cannot keep the full running feature, PLEASE at least give us the running originals with a few BPM options, like you have with the other crappy playlists.
This is the only reason I signed up for Spotify premium and use it All. The. Time. Once it’s on the platform, why would you remove it?? How does that benefit SpotIfy at all?? This decision simply sucks.
Plain and simple this was the most stupid decision ever made.
I don't need or want any new apps to "help me do" my running. I've got Spotify and got my HRmonitor+GPS clock. That should be enough as it was earlier. Actually it was PERFECT. Untill you decided to ruin it.
Nor do I want those playlists you offer, they don't serve our needs and the tracks are awfull. Variation between 160-170 is too much, especially if you need 155.
