Still no Touch preview.... Better to start searching for alternative platform guys. I can imagine this stupid decision was certainly made by some smart*ss wannabe manager, not by developers, who spend huge amount of time creating and implementing this useful feature.
I honestly don't get it. if all that was about licensing then why are previews still available on embedded playlists. On playlists.net for example...
And if you guys really removed this feature because of low engagement: Did you take a closer look at the user group that DID use it? They might have something in common. They are probably creating a lot of own playlists (in contrast to the majority who uses Spotify like a radio). And I'm pretty sure that your recommendation algorithms do get their AI right out of those lists.
Well Spotify, are you insane? You're about to destroy your business model!
