Where is the Spotify Running option for playlist based on personal taste / library?

This summer I tried Spotify running and was able to select an option that picked tracks that matched my BPM based on my Library. It was great.

 

I was going to get back into Spotify Running today and can't find that option. Has it been eliminated (oooooooooof) or moved / renamed?

Hey @ACAx1985xx

 

You mean you cannot find the running feature?

 

Running can now be found under Browse > Genres & Moods, along with Spotify's new Party feature.

This is so annoying. They just decided to remove the running feature with no announcements. Why would you do that?

IMHO a bit confusing that they moved this option. I guess I would never have found it when it was there from the beginning ^^

I can find "Running", but I can't find the option to create my own Running Mix based on my personal taste as defined by my music library.

Hey @ACAx1985xx

 

If you go to Running > Running Playlists > Recommended For You, you'll find suggestions based on your listening history.

 

There, Spotify will match your tempo with your favorite music. However, it adds new music from the Spotify catalog if your saved music doesn’t match your tempo OR if it's fairly small there wouldn’t be enough tracks there to make a playlist.

Same exact issue for me too! I used it just last week for running and now it's not showing up under Genres and Moods. Android 8.1 on a Google Pixel 2.

The Running option had disappeared on my iPhone this morning. Workout has a number of running mixes but you can’t match tonyour tempo.   Can’t find anything about this change.

Ditto.

I can see running playlists under the 'workout' tile, but the BPM tracking running option is gone. 

I used it on Sunday morning, but as of Tuesday morning, gone.
