I really hate to be repeating what everyone else in this thread is saying but I feel like I have to after my emotions tonight. My baby sister and I end our day by reading and playing around on Spotify listening to her movie soundtracks and my goofier EDM music that she seems to enjoy. The preview feature has been central to that ever since I discovered it by accident ~a year ago and early this evening when I pressed on the Trolls album and nothing happen I was so disappointed. It's weird having such a little thing make such a big feeling for a day, but I just don't see why this had to be removed. I'm not so much mad as just honestly sad to see it go because I've had such good memories with it. I'd love to have it back, and see better support for it, but from what I've read on other threads I'm not sure if that'll happen anytime soon.
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.
Please don't remove touch preview! Why would you do that ?!? I used to use it all day every day. It's the thing that made me switch from Deezer to Spotify. Might go back since there's nothing unique to other music streaming apps anymore.
My friend had no idea this feature existed and was genuinely excited when I showed them they could preview songs the other day. Imagine my disappointment to have lost it in an update the next day. Personally, I used it almost every day. Maybe the lack of use stemmed from a lack of advertisement? It's been so long but I can't even remember if I saw instructions or just stumbled across it...
I'm extremely disappointed by this change, I regret upgrading my app, would not have if it had been listed in the update notes. Also was one of many who thought my app was broken, you could have done a better job communicating the change. I have discovered so much of the music I listen to via touch preview, please bring it back!
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.
