new running feature not showing up

user-removed
Not applicable

Hi. I recently updated my spotify app in order to take advantage of the new update, specifically the running feature. However, I am not seeing the new updates. I even deleted and reinstalled the app. I am in the US, and I believe this feature was rolled out yesterday? Shouldn't I be able to view this by now?

New version of Spotify out, 3.4.0, and I'm happy to say that I now have the running feature with my premium account! Check it out...

I finally got it after this update, but I had to shut down Spotify and restart it before it showed up.

I only got this app because a colleague showed me how the running feature works (theoretically awesome), but after logging out, then logging in, and when that didn't work, uninstalling, and reinstalling...still no changes. I have an android (ver. 5), and the app requires 4.3 if i read the requirements correctly. What's going on?!

 

PS. I realize this is an iOS thread...but I can't find an android thread, and the requirements do say that running is available for android users

I just found a threat saying it's been moved.. You can find it under Browse > Genres & Moods 🙂

Hey @user-removed

 

The feature is still rolling out so not everyone has it yet. Hopefully you'll have it soon!

Thanks for the update! Is there any info on when the rollout will be complete? Or how I will know when it's available? I've been dreaming of this feature for sooo long! I can't wait to try it out!

Hopefully within the next few weeks.

 

You will see a new "Running" section in the sidebar of the iOS app

Am I the only person who thinks it's kind of crap the way that Spotify chose to do this? My friend sitting right next to me has the running feature and I do not... he is a trial user and I have been a loyal user for two years. So Spotify arbitrarily rolls out a new feature that I want to random individuals and I don't have the opportunity to partake or beta? Crap.

You are definitely not alone. We're on a family plan. My account is the primary. I still do not have the Running feature but the secondary account does. It's rather infuriating.

I'm still waiting too, Premium users for 5 years, and recently family too. Why don’t they roll it out to lotyal users first!

I've had Spotify Premium pretty much since the beginning and I don't have the Running App yet. What the hell was Spotify thinking when they came up with the rollout plan?

Same here - premium user for years. No running. Absolutely ridiculous.

Agreed, this is ridiculous! I am an avid runner and this feature is something that I have been looking forward to for a long time. Pretty frustrating that this was not rolled out to everyone at the same time as an update.
