Hey folks, Spotify here!
Just a quick post to let you know we’re in the process of removing Touch Preview, the feature on the iOS app that gives you a sneak peek of a playlist, song, album, or artist before you hit play.
We’ve taken this decision as it currently has a very low engagement rate. We’re committed to offering the best experience on each platform, and we’re actively looking into new possibilities for the long press feature.
The change will take effect with app version 8.4.15, which goes live in the App Store today.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on what long press feature you’d like to see added. Thanks in advance for sharing your feedback!
If you would like to see Touch Preview come back, you can add your vote to this idea:
So I have another phone with the version just before this update, with the Touch Preview. I know this is a long shot and most likely is not possible. But is there anyway to transfer that version of the app to my current phone?
such a valid point made
**bleep**, only reason I use spotify.... go to **bleep**.... seriously.
Maybe the problem about the engagement is that the marketing of this new feature is really bad! I discovered it like 2 weeks ago by myself (nobody in Spotify ever told me inside the app).
And I loved it........ darn..... I came to this forum to ask why the touch preview didn't work and I'm sad to see it is deleted. I loved it and I know many more people will LOVE it aslong as you let them know!!
Please bring this feature back! It was one of the most useful features which i discovered by chance (maybe thats the point it was used relatively less by the users).
I don't want a new long press feature. Just bring touch preview back! I'm using it every day and at first I thought it's just a bug that it is not working anymore.
First you replaced the great iPad layout and turned it into a huge iPhone and now this.. which feature do you want to remove next? The gestures to quickly add a song to my library and the playing queue because it's not available on Android either?.. This sucks.
I recommend to just promote the feature better if it has a "very low engagement rate" instead of removing it entirely.
Want to add yet another angry voice. This decision is incredibly disappointing. Was attempting to showcase this to a friend today only to find it'd been removed from the app. A bonkers decision that really needs to be reconsidered.
Hey there you, Yeah, you! 😁 Welcome - we're glad you joined the Spotify Community! While you here, let's have a fun game…
