If you're so "committed to offering the best experience on each platform" then why would you remove a feature from an app that was moderately used and annoy everyone who did use it for no good reason that you'll reveal? Apparently you removed it due to low Engagement rate, there was no reason for this, you had nothing to gain(from the users perspective) by doing such a thing and now you've frustrated a portion of your customer base congratulations.
Horrible. I just spent 10 minutes trying to figure out why literally the feature I mention the most when bragging about Spotify wasn't working. Please please bring it back, I'm already considering jumping to Pandora and this really pushed my buttons. I am 100% against this bs, BRING IT BACK!!!!
Um, no, just no. Now you can't figure out if a certain song is the song you're looking for, or the song you like. There could be different versions or remixes of the songs, and now we can't preview them, and now we don't know what we're putting on our playlist. Unless of course you take the time to shuffle play through an artists entire album until you come across it (which also may not be possible now that free users may not be able to listen to new music from certain artists for a while after release). Also, when you decide to just browse around and look for new music (which I and many others love to do), GUESS WHAT, you can't anymore because this feature that they just totally threw out the window was the only way to do that. Stupid call guys. I used this feature every day, and now it's gone. Kinda defeats the purpose of this app to me, and ruins it. Isn't that what the apps all about, finding new music and being able to listen to the music you love? Now you don't know what you're putting on your **bleep** playlist. Thanks for that. Cunts
Ok, so after a full day without touch preview, I've got to admit that I REALLY hate the way Spotify is now. I absolutely HATE the fact that in order for me to even try a new song it completely disrupts what I'm currently tuned into. Then, after trying out a different track, I have to navigate all the way back to whatever I was originally listening to.
Dumb. Dumb dumb dumb. I'm usually not one to gripe about the multitude of features that seem to just come and go, but removing this feature is ridiculous. A slight to the users. It seems like y'all just make the worst decisions when it comes to feature changes. The radio is trash, queueing works differently darn near every update (still can't clear it in one go on mobile) and what I assume must be some funky cache issues has rendered the random mode useless. Get it together, jeez. And now I feel like a piece of **bleep** getting all worked up about a **bleep**ing music streaming service feature.
What long press feature do I want back? **bleep**, TOUCH PREVIEW
