This has been very frustrating. I understand that you have different markets and age groups that use your servive. I also understand that you cannot make everyone happy with request, however, my request fits a need of the vast majority of paying subs that do more than listen to singles or create playlists. I submitted a post on the community forum earlier this year that i felt would help people who pay for the premium service. I looked back and saw several similiar requests that were ignored. I waited patiently and received the proper amount of likes for Spotify to consider this concern, submitted pictures to help articulate the subject, and have been told to wait for the new update. The new update came out, and is worse than before. I was told by Spotify after the last update to follow another request similiar to my own. Yet, Im still getting likes by paying subs who want this change. At least be honest and tell us that there are no plans to make the necessary changes we are asking or do something about it. This forum will continue to get likes while our requests are ignored. Feel free to look at all of my post, its insulting to us as the posts suggest above
I have just written a post which was removed only minutes ago by the moderators. Nothing in the post was rude or offensive. It was removed because they didn't like the content. The content reflects virtually every person's feelings in this thread.
NO ONE IS LISTENING. The forum is a pretence that enables them to check the 'we supply customer service' box.
Previous moderators, Peter, Katerina etc deliberately move complaints from pillar to post and DO NOT address the question of albums showing with any intention or information concerning implementation.
We, the PAYING CUSTOMERS do not matter to this company.
I will continue to post this message every time it is removed, as it is a legitimate concern, backed up by proof of long standing inaction on behalf of those that represent Spotify.
I urge anyone reading to take note of my username, as I assume that the nanny-state corporate silencing will simply move to block me from the forum.
The **bleep**? How is this not a thing? I was trying spotify because of the music discovery aspect, but I can't believe this BASIC organization isn't in the app. Artist -> Album -> Songs has been the standard of music navigation since the first digital music players. How does this not make sense to spotify?
Every time I have a problem with spotify I look on the forums and topics and see automated or scripted replies that essentially say "Yup, we hear you and aren't going to do anything about it! Have a great day!" This is like the 10th problem I've had where this is the result of my googling. I'm out. Going back to Apple Music. At least that is a functional service with a UI that makes sense, and the ability to submit feedback that actually results in changes.
Ok, so I’m in my first month of 3 month free Premium, and I’ve got to say I’m not impressed so far. No feature to select Artist > Album > Song is frankly ridiculous. Seems the only even vaguely usable workaround is to follow an artist, but never “like” any of their songs or albums. As soon as you “like” an album, the artist view is subsequently hobbled to an ugly list of all the liked songs - no album list and no ability to see other work by that artist. Madness.
I imagine that workaround is broken as soon as you download anything, but I’ve not tried that yet.
I get the impression Spotify just want users to mindlessly consume endless rolling playlists of shuffled songs. The album is dead! Anyone know whether Apple Music has a decently sized catalogue?
