Hi there, 

 

With release 1.4.0 the "Your Music" has been improved much! (It was seriously lacking functionality) I am still missing one essential feature. The ability to save an entire album in "Your Music", but only have one or a few tracks saved offline, e.a. to be able to choose which songs are available offline.  (iOs/Android). 

 

Example: 

 

I want to save one or maybe even all albums of an antist to "Your Music" to build my collection, but i only want to have a few tracks (of each album) made available offline. 

 

I'd like to see an easy and fast way to make single songs available offline throughout  "Your Music".  

 

Suggestion 1: Douple tap a song to maken it offline available / remove it from offline 

Suggestion 2: Create a "slide for options". Slide over a song to view options like "make/remove available offline", "delete" 

 

Cheers

Hi Per. You refer, on " Important note" , that Spotify is looking for Ipad rotation. I have an Ipad and the last Spotify version. I don't see any bug on it. But one thing is strange: each time I open the App Spotify the screnn opens always in Vertical mode even if I leave it one minute ago in Horizontal mode. Is this that you refer is going to be fix? Thank you.

Hello,

 

Definitely happy to see Spotify giving their iOS (iPhone) customers a little love with the rollout of Your Music Sorting to this platform.  Maybe next time, iOS can rate higher up on your Android-Priority delivery roadmap.  We can always dream...

 

Overall the sorting works well, but the app. has crashed on me at least 4 times in the last day.  This has occurred primarily when adding a number of albums (7-10 at a time) to Your Music, and after an average time period of 10-15 minutes.  I have also noticed while accessing the app. running in background, it will open and then go back to background mode (still running).  I have also seen a few Off Line screens which require a app. reload to correct.

 

The other thing I noticed is Spotify needs to add some better way of scrolling through a large number of albums in Your Music (when sorted by Last Added).  If there was a date index on the right side of screen, or maybe provide a fast scroll option (just a thought).

 

And we finally have access to the Play Queue, but not really sure how much help it is in the current implementation.  The Spotify Play Queue has always been a mystery to many, and I can see the same questions popping up all over again (why does it work that way....lol, don't need to respond).  It would be help to move ALL tracks in the queue, and not just the ones you add after the fact.  So for example, when play an album and then view the play queue, I can see all the album tracks (but cannot move them around).  If you then queue a track or two, you can move those up and down but only within the recently queue tracks.  And the BIG question is, Why can't I queue an album?????  The Play Queue function is NOT album friendly....

 

Spotify, any plans to add Album reviews to any of your platforms?  You must be the only music service not providing this feature.  And while you're at it, can you please increase the Artist Bio font size on iOS so it's readable by human eyes?

 

Thanks, Phil

Minor little issue I noticed, when playing a track from the Albums tab in Your Music, the artist and album seem to be swapped around so the "playing from" description sounds a bit strange:

Should be "Immersion by Pendulum", not "Pendulum by Immersion" 😉

 

Pendulum is the artist and Immersion is the album. Only occurs when you navigate to the track from Albums, as the description just mentions the artist when you navigate from Artists, and it says "Playing from Your Music: Songs" when navigating from Songs.

 

Seems to occur with any other tracks I've tried as well when playing from Albums.

 

Hopefully it's a quick enough fix that it can be fixed in the next update!

The developers should be aware of the title swapping bug. Hopefully it'll be fixed in the next update.

I still haven't had the filtering update 😞 What is the time scale for it being rolled out?

Hello,

 

You may not have it yet as they are doing a phased rollout.  When you have the sorting option, you should be able to pull down on the screen in Album and Artist view, and see an indicator on top right to display the sorting options.

 

Regards, Phil
