It seems every time Spotify touches "Your Library" I have reason to cringe. First they made it so that the only way to sort artists alphabetically is to follow them. Now they've nixed any artists you don't follow all together.
While this is annoying, it wouldn't be terrible if I could sort albums by artists but I can't. I have to wonder if Spotify engineers actually use their app, or do they think that the only way to use it is the way they use it.
Unfortunately, Spotify has no real competition so there's really no where else to go.
The worst. I have hundreds of playlists I created on Spotify to use in yoga and fitness classes along with many of Spotify's own playlists and I had them sorted / organized manually in a way that fit my needs. While I'm still able to do this on the desktop interface, it is completely gone from the mobile app update and it sucks. Please restore the mirroring feature where the app playlist sorting mirrors the desktop.
The new layout is terrible, so much more complicated than it needs to be
The new design is so annoying. Before that I just needed to press on library to get to my playlists. Now I have to press Library -> Playlists -> Switch sorting away from user created -> Switch sorting back to user created. Without the last 2 steps nothing sows up. Seriously Spotify? Just revert it please :(
New layout sucks. Bring back the old one. Let me pay for the old one.
I hate the new layout. Makes the app hard to use, to the point where I feel like deleting the app. I would pay to have the old layout at this point. I don’t know where or who to tell to get the point across that’s it’s horrible.
I think the old one was better and easier to use. I don't want to see everything I follow on the same screen.
I liked it better before, because it was simpler. Music or podcast. Podcasts listed in order of most recently updated on top. Now I have to search through a Playlist in a filter button to find recent episodes I want to hear.
I can't believe that all of these articles are saying it's so amazing when the user response has been clearly negative. These "improvements" have made everything incredibly inconvenient, and I hope they switch it back as soon as possible. Considering switching to another service.
Rick, 05 May 2021This update is making me seriously consider switching to Apple. It is the worst!!!Apple Music has such bad recommendations and cluttered interface, I’d rather suffer through this Spotify update and hope for the best..
Anonymous, 05 May 2021i absolutely hate it and hope they change it back Omg me too! It's complete garbage.
This update is making me seriously consider switching to Apple. It is the worst!!!
> Spotify is great but let's face it, it hasn't had a meaningful design change of the library in a long time.
Why do you make it sound like a bad thing? There is absolutely nothing worse than constant change for the sake of change only...
The only drawback I'd say is that you can't really pin more than 4 favourites, idk why is there such a limit
I actually cancelled spotify. The redesigns are just such a hassle.
Kinda like google "changing" UI elements, but basically nothing happens except for constant getting used to the new version
