I had this problem today, but whats strange is I was able to play any song I wanted when I first got the app to give it a try a couple of months ago. But after not being able to select songs I got so frustrated I threw my phone and broke it as a rersult. Good thing my contract was up anyway. It was an old iPhone so it wasnt much of as loss to me. If it's a restriction on a free account I'd rather have the once and a while adds as opposed to not being able to select a song. This tactic is going to steer coustomers away from upgrading & not help gain a hole lot of coustomers. I say we should boycot this tactic. Now I'm going back to itunes and youtube for my music needs. Screw spotify.
This is ridiculous. I know the solution is "yeah that's just how it works for a free use on an iphone" but the question is, as a free user, that isn't how it works on a desktop, so why restrict us here?? what's the **bleep**ing point? on my desktop computer without a paid account, i can play all my playlists, skip as many songs as i want, and click on individual songs. if we can' do that on our computers why not keep it consistant?? makes me want to stop using spotify all together.
Completely agree. There is no consistency, so it's confusing to a user. It's never simple so as I get more music with Apple music I stopped using Spotify. They will only change if they notice a drop in users.
This is total BS by Spotify, it's merley a tatic to make you buy a premium account out of frustration by limiting you control inside the app. But when I use Spotify on my home PC I have full control with the occasional ad in between songs. Hulu uses the same BS ploy by limiting there content to free users, basically they make it suck so bad you buy a premium account. However Spotify doesn't run ads on a premium account Hulu does! PEOPLE DON'T BE SUCKED IN BY THIS BUSINESS MODEL! Don't by premium under these circumstances with any company, they already make money from ads! The content shouldn't be limited especially when you can pull up any song you want on youtube!
I agree and that's why I'm using Apple music for the same £9.99 I get more music. Spotify shot themselves in their wallet by not listening. They sent me an offer for 3 months Spotify Premium for £9.99. They can get lost!!! They don't make it easy to get in touch and they don't listen.
