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. 🙏🏻

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.

In other words, no, go suck an egg. Has ANY thing ever come back from the idea exchange once removed?

I just don't get WHY they would remove this aspect. Many people use it and no one certainly complains about it. Makes absolutely no sense.
