It's been quite some time since you removed this function and to be honest I still miss it pretty much. I often what to check a playlist etc if it fits my current music moot without leaving the list I'm currently listing to. 

So far you didn't release a new feature, so please bring back this function. BTW it is one of the reasons why I choose Spotify before other services and if users don't know the function you should probably tell them about 😊

I agree with about everyone here—this was a great feature and, if possible, it should absolutely be pushed back into the app.

Spotify obviously never had any intention of bringing the touch preview back and this was just to get a reaction.

 

This is thread has been going on for months if they genuinely wanted to see what their users thought, why not listen to them and do something about it earlier on!

 

Still don’t get the reasoning behind “not many users used this feature” ... So! Market it better then, make more people aware that there is this cool feature that helps you preview songs rather than having to play it and scroll halfway to see if you like the song! :@

That's correct, after updating the app I noticed right away that the feature didn't work because like the rest of us here, I used it a lot! So luckily I was able to backup from icloud quickly before another backup would have earased the version I wanted on my iphone. It was worth the headache to revert! Eventually I expect the feature won't work at all after an OS update on my phone. Once that happens then I'm back to Apple Music. I'm 'shocked' Apple doesn't apply a feature similar to this with their Force Touch... These tech companies are so smart that they their brains are completely fried. Take a vacation and rethink your strategies... hint: think common sense, think user freindly... You get paid enough, maybe too much, maybe that's the problem?

I don’t understand why they have left the “Behind the lyrics” feature (who even uses that?) but taken touch preview away. 

 

There’s no way this was due to low user engagement - more like song licensing or royalties I recon. 

 

Even though there’s been plenty of votes to have the feature put back in is there actually much chance it will happen? Spotify don’t seem to have much to say about it.

Touch preview hasn't returned, but since today's update, where the Spotify app has been given a serious overhaul, you can now hear a sample of tracks by pressing the thumbnail next to the listing. Better than nothing I suppose, at least you can preview tracks. Not sure I'm 100% happy, as looking in "my music" the artists and albums options are not there.
