    A consistently buggy experience. Either it loads for a while before playing, or the queue gets automatically cleared, or the podcast list takes a long time to populate, or sometimes it doesn't sync with other devices. It works fine most of the time, but when you need it or when you're driving it glitches and it's frustrating. Features and user interface could be improved too. I still love the app, but wish the smaller improvements could be made.

  • Lack of options, randomly censored songs Jan 17, 2021

    By espeonics
    This app is really annoying in the sense that I can’t organize my music the way I used to. The “Genre” option doesn’t even exist. If you want to organize by artist/album it has to download your artist/album’s songs. It’s just a bunch of ridiculous extra buttons that I shouldn’t ever need to deal with. My least favorite thing about this app is, songs will randomly become censored without warning. That means, I was in a huge Johnny Cash phase, and had listened to “A Boy Named Sue” like a hundred times, then one day, the line goes from “I’m the son of a ***** that named you Sue” to “I’m the [BLEEEEEEEEEEEEP] that named you Sue”. Like WHY. All of my songs are fine, but one day suddenly one will be censored after enjoying it for months. I’m paying for this service, and have no parental settings or anything turned on to make that happen on my end. This should not ever happen. Besides that, it’s decent enough as a music app. Music comes out fine, making playlists is easy, they do have a wide selection of music, and even have personalized playlists that aren’t so bad a lot of the time. I can organize my songs in any order I want to. Sure, if I want songs organized by genre, I have to make an entire separate playlist or just listen to a pre-made playlist with songs that I don’t even care about that I have to constantly skip and skip and skip, but hey, at least it’s somewhat possible.

    Good content and interface. Easy to use and I'm often impressed with the new recommended songs or artists. After a few years of the free version I'm currently enjoying the 3 month free trial of Premium. While I do like the ad-free play and that you can play an album without shuffle, I'm not sure these features are worth the cost of a subscription. If it was £5 a month rather than £10, I would consider it.

  • Almost Amazing Nov 6, 2019

    By guitarguyct
    This app is very easy to use and, obviously, the content is fantastic. I would give it 5 stars if not for one significant problem: the app’s inability to effectively control shuffle mode and repeat mode I’m not sure if I’m the only one with this issue, but it’s been a problem for as long as I can remember. If I’m listening to an album and want to listen to it in order, I obviously want to turn off shuffle mode. But if I’ve just been listening to a playlist on shuffle, there’s about a 50/50 chance shuffle mode will actually stay off when I press the button to turn it off. Sometimes I’ll try closing the app and reopening to retry playing the album, but that also often doesn’t work. And the problem exists reciprocally too (if I’m listening to an album in order then want to switch to shuffling a playlist, I’ll hit “Shuffle Play” and the app will start the playlist at a random song but then play it in order, no matter how many times I try to turn shuffle mode on). My opinion of this app started at 5 stars, then the issue became very noticeable and my rating went down to 4 stars. Now, I experience this issue multiple times per week (sometimes multiple times per day), so I can’t give the app more than 3 stars. I still use it religiously and love my playlists and all the other features, but this is a significant part of the listening experience that the app should be doing much better.

  • Love it but.. Nov 16, 2020

    By Danny2535
    This app is awesome! I love how you can listen to your own music, and share it. But I don’t like how it adds music to your playlist, and won’t let you remove it. I don’t get that I really hope you fix it soon. Also, when I only want to listen to my music it makes me listen to a suggested track that I can’t get out of. What is with that? And, there is too many ads. And only 6 skips per HOUR?! Why? And, when my playlist is making me listen to other songs, I have to go to a different playlist, listen to 1 song in it, come back to my playlist, and there it is. another song I don’t need. I am probably one of those users that will get ignored, but if you are looking at this, congratulations. You get a gold sticker. I wish that the users without premium could get AT LEAST 10 skips and hour. It’s not fair with only 6 per hour. I also want to add, that when I want to listen to my music ONLY and not some stupid suggested track, I can’t get out of it, because I used all of my skips on the DANG SUGGESTED TRACK! Fix that please! I’m sorry if that is all jumbled. But PLEASE fix it. I have seen the other users complaints, and it looks like most of us are having the EXACT same problem. Smh. If you made it this far. FIXX THEMM. My temper is getting lost because of this app, not to be dramatic and all. Have a good day.

    This app performs terrible on Android. I'm a paying subscriber, and use Spotify as my main music/podcast platform. It opens quickly, but the search and play functions take an eternity to respond. Even where songs and podcasts are downloaded, the Spotify app can take five to 10 minutes to begin playing. There is, as far as I know, now workaround for this. My wife has an iPhone (and is also a paid subscriber) and has never had this issue. The shuffle, it has to be said, is also rubbish.

    Downloading? Seems like this problem is getting worse. Used to just load my liked page slowly. Now I can't even listen to more than 10 seconds of each song because its stuck in perpetual download at like 98% All. The. Time. Absolutely ridiculous. I pay for premium and can't hardly use it half the time now. What gives? Not worth the money if they can't fix this.

    For the last month the app has refused to play music when connecting through blue tooth. I've attempted to re-install it but this hasn't fixed my issue. The app will say music is playing on my phone but the time played on the song remains at 0 and there's no sound. When attempting to connect to a device it just stays on connecting and never does anything. At this point I'm wondering why I'm still paying for this.

  • feedback (updated) Jul 6, 2019

    By gabriela.nr
    I already scrolled through enough reviews to where I know I'm not the only one, but yo.. what's up with this new update?? I used to like that when if on the "Your Library" tab you could click on a recently played artist or just an artist from the "Artists" tab and it would take you only to the songs you saved from them, but then if you clicked on them from the "Home" tab it would take you to their main profile page. Now it takes you to their main page even if you click on the artist from the library tab. It's extremely inconvenient, I would like to listen to only the songs I have saved from an artist not all of them. Before the update at least we had the choice. And as dramatic as this sound I have to agree with other people, it really IS enough to make me want to delete the app because of how inconvenient it has actually become to listen to my saved songs. Also the layout is just kinda weird. Well not weird but the one before was definitely better. It had your recently played artists or albums or whatever it is you listen to. And now it's not really like that anymore. Now you gotta go to them from the "Home" tab. I won't lie, it doesn't bother me as much as the first thing I mentioned (PLS CHANGE THAT BACK), but it's for sure something I wouldn't mind if y'all brought back.

  • Now is unnecessarily complex Mar 2, 2019

    By Corndog3135
    The number one thing I hate about this update is the fact that anytime I pick a song, shuffle turns off. It's literally a joke that I have to turn it on every time I pick a new song. What confuses me is the fact that repeat stays on when shuffle turns off. That needs to be fixed. Another thing is the fact that you can't hide the recommended songs that are at the bottom of each playlist. Which tends to always have the same songs on it. Which is quite annoying. Another thing is that when you search for something on a playlist, you cannot slide to the right to add to queue anymore. Which is a major time consumer now. A guy should be able to add to queue in a lot faster time than having to click song options, scroll down, and add to queue, because if there's multiple songs you'd like to add, it should take 10 seconds to add 10 songs. Not 10 seconds to add just one song. One more topic is that I have to go through multiple screens just to go to queue. Whom ever had that idea is considerably unintelligent. It used to be so simple and easy to use. Now it's like you're playing a intelligence and patience game with every user. With this new update, many things became very unnecessarily complex. My patience with this app is going quickly. I hope you fix these format issues.

    I'm always a huge critic when it comes to rating apps but honestly, Spotify is one of the best apps out there. For all you music lovers, this is just the app for you. I'm a standard user (I don't have Spotify premium) and the features are exceptional - everything you'll need or want! I don't think there are ANY negatives. It's just a wonderful app altogether!!

  • great app, but annoying rollback of features in recent update Jun 19, 2019

    By PhoenixBirdCity
    This is a review about the recent change to "Your Library". Generally these changes are a substantial UI improvement and navigating between various views is far more intuitive now that the notion of a my library home page, with all relevant shortcuts to artists, podcasts,... only available there. the only issues I’ve run into as of yet are 1. the lack of the a-z navigation scroll bar in the Albums section and 2. the lack of a move to front list of recently played albums. re 2. however, I feel this may actually be useful toward encouraging people to diversify their listening, as the design of defaulting to recently played in my experience makes it difficult to spend time finding something I’d like to listen to (either new or archived in my albums section) when my attention is already so contested by everything else. so yeah, I actually like what I said was my second complaint, and thinking back had thought about that before. being able to scroll quickly through the albums seems like a good interaction to keep, however.

    I went from Google Play straight over to Amazon music. For a long time I was content with the service. Until recently. Having used Spotify for a few weeks, I could never settle for either of the aforementioned again. This app, the Windows app and website all exceed the versatility of the above + YouTube combined. It makes it very easy to expand your repertoire.

  • The Music Just...Stops?! Nov 22, 2020

    By OMGalaxy!
    So, I love this app so much. I can’t live without it😅 Everything is great! But there is one thing that I have a problem with. I’m not sure if I’m the only one with this problem but, basically what happens is while I’m listening to a song I like, out of nowhere the music just stops! I don’t close the app at all. Usually this happens when my phone isn’t even on. (Like if the screen timeout goes off.) This problem is so annoying, probably more annoying then the adds not gonna lie. And when the music stops, it start all over again! Once this happened to me while I was done with the song so I had to listen to the whole thing again! This has happened so many times. It even happened more then 4 times while I was writing this review! I know I could just skip the song but I would probably run out of skips because I don’t have premium. I just want this to be fixed because it’s really annoying. I hope the app developers see this and fix it. Other then that, this apps one of the best ones I have and one of the most used too! Thanks for reading!

  • Queued songs don’t work well anymore Feb 11, 2020

    By Kadeorade5
    I can’t queue songs anymore. I have to individual click them in the order I want them to play after each individual song ends. It doesn’t matter if I click the triple dot and click add to queue, or if I slide the song to the right to add, it doesn’t work consistently. Sometimes it works, but it has been really bad lately. Also, when the queued songs would work and be added to the list of queued songs, I would move them around in a different order because I would want them to play in a different order than when I queued them. While moving a song that was towards the bottom to the top, it would move, but then not stay where I wanted placed it. The app would then crash or need to be quit in order to be functional. Update: As I was writing this I just tried queuing some songs and it worked. I only queued one song at a time. The song doesn’t appear in the queued list though, so it makes me think it doesn’t work when I queue. Please make sure this works. I really love this app! Thanks for all of your hard work!

    I've had nothing but great things to say about spotify until this last update it seems. Takes forever to load music sometimes or will absolutely not play at all. Most recently, I can get a few songs to play then it completely stops. I use this primarily in the car and it's not convenient to have to keep selecting songs or hitting shuffle while driving. Other music apps work just fine, so I know it's not my phone or vehicle. PLEASE fix this quickly!!

  • Great app, but a few kinks to work out Dec 19, 2020

    By Dr. Feeelgood
    I would like to start with saying I LOVE THIS APP! I’ve been with Apple Music for quite a long time and I wanted something new. I agree with the user, sadandblujee, that the home page really triggers my OCD. I’m not a super organized person, but that really messes with me. Also, I thunk that it is stupid that the Explicit filter is on songs that have one bad word that isn’t terrible. For example, Moral of The Story featuring Niall Horan says one word, the S word, and at the very end of the song. I feel like that needs to change. But, I agree with the explicit filter in many other ways. My main problem with the filter is that when I see explicit, I think “Wow! This song must be terrible.” It’s annoying to find songs that you love and then have them taken away because of a false sign in front of them. Secondly, is that when you’re looking for songs to add to a playlist, if you add a song, it immediately kicks you out when you’re still looking for options. I would love if I could add a song and then keep browsing. I’m sure other listeners would love it too. Finally, WHAT’S UP WITH THE SIX SKIPS ONLY?? Sometimes people get tired of songs and just want to skip them. It’s annoying to have a limit on that. I hope that you listen to these suggestions. Thank you for your time.

    Same with not being able to play songs when selected. Restarting the phone then closing the app after the restart fixed for me. It is an annoying process when paying for the service. It only recently started and seems to be fixed for me these last few days. This seems to be an issue over the entire platform though and not just my year old phone. I'll continue to subscribe to spotify but hope they get their stuff together. Shouldn't need to troubleshoot at this point.

  • 3 Simple Fixes to Get Back to 5 Stars Jul 3, 2019

    By aproctor8
    1. You need to include an alphabetical quick scroll on the right-hand side of all of your lists, whether it’s your list of playlists, your Artist Library, or inside an actual playlist looking at songs. No one has the time to swipe for 30 seconds to the bottom of their library when they want to listen to The Who. A quick scroll has been a standard on every music app for years now. Get with the times! 2. The artist library page needs a royal update. Or retro-date, rather. I had an older version of the app until yesterday where all artists whose music you had saved into your library displayed on the same library in a neat, clean fashion, regardless of whether or not you Follow them. Now you can only neatly organize those artists whom you Follow, and the rest are left in this awkward, disorganized list of artists with a big “Follow” button next to it. We know what you’re doing guys. If we want to follow an artist, we will. For now, just let us organize our artist library in a straightforward fashion. 3. Another retro-date: put back the option to view your Songs Library. Sometimes you just wanna shuffle your songs. Yeah, the “Liked Songs” playlist is there, and that’s cool and all, but it’s not intuitive when you have “Playlists” and “Artists” listed up top. Put it back.

    This is getting extremely irritating. I have a family share premium, and whatever I do, (before this update it was fine, actually, the new UI screwed it up,) I can’t play the next song in my playlist. I try restarting my phone, PC, anything, and it keeps screwing up. I’ve tried everything. For real, fix your bugs and don’t put the old bugs into a new update, PLEASE. Not to mention, for non premium users, fix the ad problem. There’s definitely great ideas, but they are executed quite poorly. It’s clear that you want people to pay to do anything. And really, you shouldn’t even be plaguing them with ads if premium has just as many. 6 hours for each skip? There are 24 hours in a day. You’re telling me they only get FOUR SKIPS EVERY 24 HOURS? Seriously, that’s just downright disgusting and rude at that point. If you’re going to torment them like that, at least make it so it’s 2 additional skips per every 12 hours they wait, otherwise it’s just repetitive. Anyways, remember that UI says a lot too. And you should also add the shortcuts back. They were quite useful. And once again, fix the bugs before sending out a new update because it’s annoying. That’s all I have to say for now, and I apologize if it’s jumbled. Please at least TRY and take this into consideration.

  • My music suddenly stops playing and ads Dec 8, 2020

    By Susanne Martinez
    I’ve been having this issue for awhile and it’s getting on my nerves. Sometimes when I’m listening to my music, it just suddenly stops playing and when I go back to play it again, it plays from the beginning. It’ll suddenly stop playing half way through the song and when I go back to press play again, the music starts from the beginning. It’s been doing that for about a few months now and at first I thought it was maybe my headphones, but just today I wasn’t using them and the music stopped again. I’m getting really tired of this happening. Also, when it does stop and goes to the beginning, I just skip to the next song on my playlist, but then again, it does the same thing to the next song. I want this to stop! It’s super annoying and I just want to listen to my music without any problems. Also, when ads pop up, it gives you the option to skip them and go straight to your music. I always skip them because, to be honest, your ads are super annoying. I just close out of the app and go back in it again to play music. However, sometimes when I do skip the ads, it still plays an ad. Like, it SUPER ANNOYING and I’m getting sick of it. It gives you the option and you decide to play it anyway. Not cool. Please get back to me ASAP!

My wife has an iPhone (and is also a paid subscriber) and has never had this issue. The shuffle, it has to be said, is also rubbish.

    Must be a bug at the moment, because it keeps freezing during podcasts and then won't play again, even with shutting down the app. Looked to see if app was up to date, and it was. Tried reinstalling and it's done the same again. Don't have this problem when listening to music. It's starting to put me off listening to podcasts to be honest.

    Slow. Extremely slow. Cant access settings as it just crashes. It crashes all the time. Once a song finally plays you then cant stop it from playing. After reinstalling it's worse for a while then settles down. My new gripe is that if the player stops playing (because of disconnected speaker or end of playlist for example), then the widget disappears from my locked screen. It used to be the case that if Spotify was running then it was present, weather it was playing or not.

  • what’s with the new way of categorizing saved music? Jul 3, 2019

    By tessssssssssssssssssssss
    when i save an individual song, i still want that song to be FINDABLE. if i wanted to put it into a playlist with thousands of songs, id do that. but with the previous versions of the app, you could find ANY saved album under the albums category. even if i just have one or two songs saved from an album, i want it to be there! because otherwise it’s just lost in a sea of thousands of individually saved songs. with the previous versions, you could filter out entire albums if you CHOSE to, but now that’s the default. i have no clue why yall keep making updates that antagonize your loyal users. it’s one thing to change up the design or add cool new features or fix existing issues, but it’s another to just remove an entire means of categorizing music??? and, for what reason? out of an assumption that people who save individual songs only want to listen to their music on shuffle, and never would want to actually be able to find their liked songs in a functional way? it’s stupid. please make it so that all liked music is represented under the albums category again, even if the entire album isn’t saved. it’s really annoying to see HUNDREDS of albums disappear from that category just because i only saved some songs from them.

  • iPhone XR Update is horrible Mar 15, 2019

    By John1681
    Last week, the XR received an update that essentially broke the experience for me. All of my saved artists are no longer there, and my “Artists” tab only shows artists I’ve “followed,” and takes me to the artists’ page and not the albums or songs I have saved. The interface is completely different. I chatted on their website with support for over two hours, only to have the person tell me that the feature I have used every day for years never existed . This is a basic function since the inception of the MP3 player. I have been a premium subscriber for more than 5 years, and this has made me seriously consider other streaming services. I have over 10,000 songs that I’ve saved or “liked” over the years, and to only be able to sort by album or song is terrible. Not to mention, BEFORE the update, it was a pain to navigate the Artists page because there is no scroll bar or alphabet to the side to help you navigate - you would have to scroll past hundreds of artists to get to the one you wanted if you wanted to listen to a band that started with “T.” This doesn’t seem to be a problem on any other iPhones, but the latest update affected my desktop app on my work computer, as well. When this is fixed, I’d gladly adjust my review back to 5 stars.
