Your Library changed to Your Playlists test

user-removed
Not applicable

In the iOS app, the bottm right tab/menu shows 'Your Playlists' instead of 'Your Library'.

 

I have 2 accounts. One which was made 2 years ago and when I log in, everything is fine. And one which I made today and when I log in, it doesn't show 'Your Librabry', it shows 'Your Playlists' instead. 

 

I have read in other posts people say this is spotify testing a new 'feature'. This is incredibly frustrating. I am a UX designer myself. Having artists, albums, podscasts etc is the BASE OF A MUSIC APP. Users can't be expected to go througha giant playlist to find an bits and pieces of an album they want to play OR expected to search to find an albumn they ALREADY saved. 

 

How can we get 'Your Library' menu back?

We're sorry to hear you're unhappy with the changes in the recent Spotify update.

 

Spotify is always testing things by adding or removing features to make the service better overall. We’re sorry that this means you’re not able to use the app like you could before.

 

We can't say if or when any specific features will be back. But as soon as they've got anything to announce, they'll let everyone know via the Spotify Community.

If this is some sort of a/b testing i also would like to be on the other side. As a lazy listener all of my songs was in "my songs" tab but now i cant reach them..

My library isn't there

I've had three spotify accounts and only recently did i start using premium. The first two accounts, which were free, had 'Your Library' to organize everything. However, when i made my third account (this one is subscribed to premium), the library is no longer there but is now replaced with 'Your Playlists.' WHY IS THAT? I absolutely despise this new format. Everything is all over the place and unorganized! I can't view individual albums anymore unlike when i had the library format. The first playlist i had was named 'Saved Songs' but I renamed it to Negative Space, yet when i add new songs, spotify created another playlist called 'Saved Songs'. Because of that, i now have to add each songs individually to 'Negative Space', and all the previous songs I've saved before i renamed the playlist arent saved anymore. Please fix this and bring back the library.

Album save button has disappeared

I recently got a new Spotify account. After transferring my playlists across from my old account to the new one, I decided to start saving some albums as well. However, when I went to do that, I found that the "save" and "download" buttons had both disappeared. As well as this, the "your music" tab had been renamed "your playlists". I tried deleting and reinstalling, but nothing changed. I also tried clicking the "..." in the top right to see if any useful options were there, but there were none.

I'm running version 8.4.16.483, if that is any help.

This testing is making customer unhappy and making your service unreliable.

Do you guys even read 2% of the communities messages.
