Long story short, I had a very hard time trying to retrieve my credentials to sign in to Spotify. All the help Spotify offered didn’t help at first, and I thought I was going to be stuck paying for an account I had no access to, but I found Spotify’s email address at the end of an old email and tried my luck and sent an email with my issues. This had to be sometime late at night and within minutes I was met with enthusiasm and eagerness to help me. So many different ways of retrieving my credentials were thrown at me, and I was so happy to see there are so many ways to get your music back. I was so happy to speak to someone other than a bot or automated message that really didn’t help. After they did their part, I had to wait for google to verify my email address, and after a week and 2 days of no music, google gave me access to my old email which was used for my Spotify account!! Now back to the regular scheduled program! Thank you so much Spotify!
Amazing place for new music and music from the past, premium is a great feature but for someone with no money I want to listen to music for free, and I do understand theres going to be an ad here and there but the amount of ads I have gotten recently is nothing what it used to be like. I’ve been using Spotify for 4+ years now and the ads were never like how they are now, I can listen to around 2-4 songs and then i’ll get a 4-5 ad break, and then another 2-4 songs and then another ad break, and when you skip a song, it counts as another song that you fully listened to so that will go towards how close you are to another ad break. Super bad with the ads but I still use it every single day of my life, just ads are sometimes played more than I actually listen to music and it was never like that, used to be like 10 songs straight and then maybe 1 or 2 ads.
The more I use Spotify the harder it is to switch back to another music app. This is how I felt before. But for real bring back the dislike button. Sometimes people don’t like things.
A downvote button, the offline mode, sorting by genre and other filtering and library arrangement options and probably more that I have long forgotten. These are the features i miss. These little features that made me ok with switching to streaming rather than downloading and sorting my entire music library. Music is my life, yea I said it. I’m part of the “diehard music lovers” segment. The group the marketing execs think we’ll never leave. But when little things that I (and probably others) like disappear it makes me want to go back to having real/digital copies of my music.
Guessing this was done to make room for podcasts. Oh well I guess.
It’s a great app! I love how you can remove songs and hide some of your playlist! I love how you can name each playlist and rename it after if you dislike the one you originally chose. There are so many artists on the app. I love listening to the music and podcasts while doing school work, cleaning, or singing when I have nothing to do. But I don’t like some stuff that have come up recently on my account.. So I had Spotify for a two weeks and today I open it up to see that if I want a certain song it will only play me a bit of that song. Like this evening I wanted to play dynamite by bts but it wouldn’t let me and only let me play the songs they would chose for me. Also another we thing that I don’t like is how I can’t see my songs on a playlist so play it.
I love Spotify, don’t get me wrong, but there is WAY too many ads!! I hate it! I’m tired of when It says: listen to an ad to get 30 minutes of free listening. If I press no thanks, it gives me one anyway!! And even if I do press the bottom to listen to the ad, it gives me five ads! And it doesn’t even give me 30 minutes of uninterrupted listening!! More like one song of uninterrupted listening. And it shows like 5 in a row! And the same ones and you can rate it a thumbs down (the ad) and give a reason why like: I’ve heard it too many times. And if I do that, It will still play it! Sometimes twice in a row! Don’t waste your time getting this app, you can get so many other better ones that won’t give you 5 ads in a row, every 10 minutes.
Now...I had Spotify for what...2 years now? I know I’m a pre teen but I hadn’t had any problems with it but in 2020 they made songs and playlists have their own songs...and only giving 6 skips an hour. They are saying that you need to buy premium. So if Spotify is reading this... plz make it to where you can play any song from your own playlist and listin to songs individually and also have the songs they added to their playlists... it’s really annoying... plz and thank you.
I have to restart the app multiple times sometimes when listening to podcasts. Sometimes it loses your place to where you were last listening. If you use it with Apple car play and have Waze going at the same time the podcast will stop when an alert comes on and won’t start again after. So you have to constantly re Press play when using Waze at the same time. Ideally the concept is a good idea but like they say in basketball million dollar move, 10 cent finish.
Something changed within the last week or so, now when I’m listening to Spotify on my iPhone and switching between AirPlay controls on my watch, AirPods, and iPhone X all of the input lags like crazy.
It’s making it a huge pain to listen to Spotify on my phone, which is the only reason I’ve kept my subscription. I pay for YT premium for the videos and their music app is great on desktop. Even if I’m not in love with the mobile experience it still works right.
I like Spotify because it allows you to adjust the bass and treble of the song as well as other functions that you can modified . Apple Music is more restrictive and you can’t really do anything.. it’s more than just a music app.. it’s more of a lifestyle because I use it everyday for workout, relaxation, for stories etc... too bad it’s 10$ a month unless you’re a student. And also you get free Hulu too so that’s a bonus!!
Only constructive feedback I could give is that when I play radio from a playlist or just shuffle playlist there seems to be a pattern in the order that the songs play every time. I would hope for it to be more random. In every other aspect it does everything I want it to. Love the app and it is my belief they’re superior to all of their competitors.
