Recent app changes


I am not sure if this a bug or by design, but I have noticed that radio stations have moved or changed?


the artist stations I have been following and personalizing have been converted into short playlists, and when I go back to the artist page to start a station it is brand new and doesn’t let me follow the station anymore. Is this by design?


i also notice the thumbs up and down has been removed. Can you no longer personalize stations?


i hope this is a bug as these seem like awful features to remove.

I have Version 8.4.85 (newest version), at the top right of an artist screen there are 3 dot at the top right. Select them and a screen should slide up with a "Go to radio" option. The thumbs up has been replaced with a heart and the thumbs down has been replaced with a cancel sign. These are just cosmetic changes from what I can tell.

Just updated my android app and I am having the same problem. No more actual stations just weird short playlists that I can't thumb up or down. I don't have the option to heart or dislike (cancel sign) either like the other comment said we should have access to. Either I am doing something wrong or they just had one of the worst updates possible.

theres also still no scroll bar on iOS when android has had one for like over 4 years. the app is complete garbage on iOS and the developers dont seem to give a **bleep** whatsoever. horrible customer service, extremely disappointed with how shitty they treat their users on iOS. I wish i could switch to a different music streaming app without losing all my saved songs, spotify is absolutely horrible on iOS

I have the exact same issue.  It seems intermittent or at least inconsistent enough that it must be a bug.  I am getting the wierd radio playlists instead of actual stations (including a lack of thumbs up/heart or down buttons)...but today I innitiated a station via my macbook controling the app on my iphone, and the exact same list began functioning like a radio station again (like/dislike options returned).
