Same issue here on 10/23/19; I’m also a yoga & meditation professional and this is very frustrating. Also noticed yesterday that when I try to change volume from my watch the track either stops completely or I have to control volume from my phone which is super tacky and inconvenient in a fitness environment. Please fix. 🙏🏻
SAME!! This is happening for me too and also teach fitness classes that need this function for. Please switch this back ASAP!!!!!!!!!! Bringbackthecountdown #Bringbackthecountdown Or please tell us how to fix this!!
The best thing you all can do at this point is click the "Me Too" button on OP raysonyam's post. I see that a lot of you use it for fitness and coaching purposes, which is wonderful. It's crazy how much we rely on such a small feature. Spotify really needs to listen to their community more, especially since there is no apparent reason for removing the countdown.
"We can confirm that this is now the expected behaviour of the app. If you'd like to see this changed back, feel free to head over to the Idea Exchange here, create a new idea for it, and add your vote to it. "
In other words, no, go suck an egg. Has ANY thing ever come back from the idea exchange once removed?
