1. The Spotify app for Apple Watch lets you stream Spotify directly from your wrist (Spotify Premium and Apple Watch Series 3 or later required), use your voice to control the playback with Siri, and to connect and control playback to any other Spotify Connect enabled device.
Going to lose a loyal customer
So when I first found this app (when it first came out) I thought it was the best in the world 😍. It had features that no other music app did, primarily the ability to listen to your music while offline. I have given rave reviews to numerous friends over the years. I have 2 accounts, 1 free and 1 premium. I hadn’t used my free one in a while and needed to change some settings on a couple playlists. When I signed into my other account, the layout was completely different!! I cannot see the songs in my playlist (as I could previously), I can’t make any changes to my playlists. IT MAKES NO SENSE TO HAVE A PLAYLIST THAT YOU CANNOT EDIT. Please fix this, the layout is not user friendly, it’s cheesy looking and critical settings I was previously able to change are no longer available. I will be in the process of cancelling my premium account as well as telling my other friends with premium accounts about a better app. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because I can still actually stream music (as do many other FREE music services).
Amazing except for a couple of annoying flaws
I love this app. So much music is available, you can download for offline listening, I love the mood/genre playlists, I love the radio feature and playlists designed just for me, and I use it daily. HOWEVER, I really wish it could take a lead out of Windows Media Player’s book and figure out the whole temporary playlist/queue thing. If I want to switch from listening to Artist #1 on shuffle to Artist #2, I’d have to go into the queue and skip all the way to the last song so that it clears all of the songs from #1. If I don’t do that, if I go straight to shuffle playing Artist #2, it’ll play one song and go right back to the queue, which is loaded with #1 songs. Really annoying. On the other hand, it’s ridiculously easy to destroy a queue that you’ve worked really hard to add songs to one at a time to. You could always avoid this by creating a new playlist, but when you have dozens and you’re just in the mood to listen to a few certain songs, it’s nice to be able to just listen to them and not have the list hanging around after. Another dislike, while I’m at it: you can’t go back to previously played songs on a queue. So if my hands are full or icky and I can’t get to my phone to look at what song is playing on the queue/my radio, I don’t have a way to go back and look at what it is. Maybe I’m missing something with all of this queue stuff but it seems like basic intuitive features are missing.
Fine app, but mean to non-premium people.
I like using this but I find it frustrating when I’m playing one of my playlists that has over 500 songs get randomly switched to playlist radio. It would help if playlist radio was something you’d voluntarily go to rather than the app just deciding for you. I also don’t like how there’s a specific folder just for getting premium on the mobile version because heck, you can’t even buy it from there, you have to go online and that just kinda defeats the purpose of putting a whole folder there. If you want to advertise it that bad, just put it somewhere else. Also, the ads are so loud! I get it, you want our attention, but how the heck am I supposed to listen to your “quality music” in premium if I lose my hearing while hearing an ad for it? Seriously, chill. I know that you’re only allowed 6 skips per hour as a non-premium member, but I’ve noticed that you have to be listening to music in that hour in order for that to happen, which is dumb. I use up my skips, get out of the car to work for about 7 hours, get back in to go home and my skips are still all out and I can’t do anything. Please fix!
