Very disappointed not to see any response or update from the Spotify team on this given that we've met the community guideline requirements for review. Are those guidelines even adhered to? 


I created a support account JUST to come vote here when I discovered this crippling issue with the platform. 


When listening to music in the car, I used Playlist Radio at least half the time.  Depending on the playlist, it's the perfect way to get a nice mix of familiar and new music in a certain style, and you can leave it on for hours without intervention.

Why oh why would Spotify randomly say “no, you can't do that anymore”??


I complained about this to @SpotifyCares on Twitter, and got a response:

Hey there! We're here for you. Can you try logging out > restarting your device > logging back in to your account? Let us know if that works.

I wasn't hopeful, but I tried it anyway and you know what, it works!  On my Android phone, I can choose Playlist Radio again!


Edit: I spoke too soon.  It was back, but only briefly.  After a few hours, Playlist Radio is gone again.

When I log off and log on (no need to restart in between) it is back (briefly).


Why remove a feature that works? I used this at parties all the time. Bring it back


I do love how they showed up and said "Hey everyone, we just took this feature away. .. Oh? you have a problem with it? oh, let us know. we'll definitely, totally listen, ..maybe in a few years?! " (laughs)

edit: okay, I'm kidding, and I understand there's actual people behind the scenes of these things, I don't want to hurt someones feelings, it's just having someone communicate with the community on a regular basis would help a ton. Thanks! 


The playlist features (which were one of the strongest points of Spotify) are being eroded. The dynamic playlist (where it inserted tracks recommended based on certain playlist tracks) also appears to have been removed meaning the process of organically growing a playlist is now very arduous.

yeah, I'm ready to hop of to Tidal probably, when more core features of
spotify gets removed, really fed up of how little they care for
customers opinions.

Please bring back the playlist radio! It was one of my main means of finding new things to put on my playlist. The "Enhance" feature mixes and matches new music with what's already on there, which is not helpful for a dedicated search for music to add to my playlist. I love this feature, please bring it back. 😞


This was a great feature. I just cancelled my subscription time to move on from Spotify.
