Update is REAAAAAAAALY BAD
by Insomnimaniac96 on 2019/06/19 10:39
Also please for the love of Pete, give us the ability to download individual songs you cretans.
Best songs!!
by Me and Emi on 2019/06/19 10:36
I enjoyed Spotify 3 days back. And I really enjoy the songs they put different music, good music I love it!!
6/14/19 app is terrible
by jesse mayne on 2019/06/19 09:34
App is ruined. New setup is preposterous and ruined functionality. Very tedious and involved to actually use. On my way to Apple Music it was nice while it lasted
A joke
by surviveditall on 2019/06/19 08:58
Update made this pandora. Major steps backwards
Scrolling
by Kjetstiiann on 2019/06/19 08:06
Bring a scrolling feature!!!
Pay artist more
by placide boh on 2019/06/19 07:52
Pay artists the same as tidal
I like it
by nanihurst on 2019/06/19 07:44
I like that the free version forces you to branch out and not be so picky with your music
New update
by L0ng_H0rn on 2019/06/19 07:36
The UI was just fine and worked well and all this update did was complicate things.
feed back sis
by donthaveausernamewha on 2019/06/19 07:20
i really don’t like ur ads but i enjoy the music but the ads have been coming on too often like see when i click on the song i would like to play or any playlists ads first comes on, its comes on too often and i think maybe not to put a lot of ads in here it makes me want to delete the app
I can’t open the app

It won’t start for more than a minute
New update
by naturals23 on 2019/06/19 06:36
This new update is terrible I can’t even see my song library based on my recents saves anymore... if I want to listen to my library I have to search up every individual album and select the individual song from that album... it’s terrible and if it’s not fixed I’ll be headed back to Apple Music
Spotify Music app
by Arbie's iPhone on 2019/06/19 06:33
I have iHeartRadio and Spotify Music apps on my current three devices. The two are virtually equal but Spotify excels in clear music quality, ease of use and features—and it’s free. What a find.
Enjoying Spotify
by duf111 on 2019/06/19 06:09
Super.
Love it, but...
by Jane Arial Banks on 2019/06/19 06:02
I love this app, but I wish it showed the lyrics for songs!
This update is awful
by 498:628/94 on 2019/06/19 05:52
Go back to the old format. This one is so confusing, it’s hard to see recently played. There is no longer the alphabetical scroll so it takes forever to get to the bottom of a list. Ughhh so frustrating. (Also lol to the people complaining about how there shouldn’t be ads in the free version)
FAVORITE APP BUT...
by Bobylovessocks on 2019/06/19 05:51
This is my favorite app! I found this app by searching: “Music apps without WiFi,” but I tried playing music at a place without WiFi on my phone. Although everything worked, the app told me to check the connection and the music didn’t play. Other than that great app!
Thank you
by payyto12 on 2019/06/19 05:49
I wish this was like youtube so I could pick different songs and skip. Because what petiole don’t want to go premium or just don’t have the money right now? It’s a great app still and I love it.
Dave
by elkiladave on 2019/06/19 05:45
La nueva actualización es un asco ahora no aparece la lista por pistas solo por álbum , artista y playlist 👎👎👎👎👎👎
New update is TRASH
by _kc04_ on 2019/06/19 05:37
What is with this new update? Why would you guys take out the option to search and sort by song titles? I enjoyed the option of shuffling my music, now it’s only under artists and their radio? Get it together Spotify before I switch back to Apple Music! Shame on you for this whack update.
Easy to use
by idris625 on 2019/06/19 05:30
This is atop Apple Music and its performances say so. The outlay of Spotify is attracting and it has more than any other music streaming services.
Hate this new update!
by simba6795 on 2019/06/19 05:30
I hate the new update I can’t even see any of my artists. It’s so disorganized!!! Spotify please change this back
Making it harder to listen to my liked songs
by Gavin Horoszewski on 2019/06/19 05:27
I’m not liking how my saved music is being treated more and more like any other playlist these days. I have something like 500+ liked songs on my account, and I’ve enjoyed being able to quickly scroll up and down through the songs when I sort them by title and drag my finger along the letters on the right side of the screen. I’d been able to do this only on my liked songs, and not on any other playlist. As of a few hours ago, the look of the app has changed, and while I can still sort by title, the letters aren’t on the right side of the screen any more, and as a result, I can’t do that thing I mentioned. It’s a little thing, but it’s bugging me right now, so I’m giving the app a low rating at the moment, even though I very much enjoy using Spotify premium on a regular basis. Also, the same mini-update made it harder to access my liked songs. I don’t remember *exactly* how it was done just yesterday, but I know that being unable to access my liked songs from anywhere but the “playlists” sub-tab under the “Your Library” tab was not the case until these past few hours. “Liked Songs” (or “Saved Music”) had been its own thing for years, and now it’s being treated like any other playlist, and I don’t particularly care for these changes. I’d be more than happy to write a more positive review or to edit this one if these issues are addressed in the near future. In the meantime, I’m leaving this 1-star review for one of the most-used apps on my phone.
TOO MANY ADDS FOR PREMIUM

TOO MANY ADDS FOR PREMIUM
New update is bad!!!!
by Bob124141414726 on 2019/06/19 05:08
I don’t like the new update. Please go back to something simple. I like having my recently played there. I don’t like the new set up.
The new update is HORRIBLE
by butt0nbear on 2019/06/19 04:53
I loved the Spotify app. Loved. As in past tense. Whose brilliant idea was it to put all the saved songs into a playlist??? Now whenever I want to look for a song I have to search for it by name as opposed to using the sidebar to search alphabetically. And then it only plays the song I searched for. It doesn’t continue to play the rest of my saved songs. The UX is just horrible now. Please stop the madness. Bring back the old UX. I pay for Spotify Premium so I can listen to my music. I don’t pay for it so I can search by name for each song and be subject to these inane UI updates because someone thought it would be cute to change a library to a playlist.
Boo!
by Paid u jeueujejdidibx on 2019/06/19 04:40
I can’t find the songs I searched
Playlist choices
by bakimat on 2019/06/19 04:39
I want to be able to pick a certain song/order in my playlist but spotify only lets me shuffle which i don’t really use because i want to be able to skip as i please. Can you guys please fix this?
Terrible update
by Dw3cp3 on 2019/06/19 04:33
The update is terrible. Also, I save a few songs from an album and then it plays the whole album. It’s annoying
Update
by Chev😑 on 2019/06/19 04:27
The new update is geared toward playlists and I don’t have any playlists. I downloaded and like my songs now everything is out of order
ITS MISSING A KEY ELEMENT!
by Haveahershey IG on 2019/06/19 04:24
It needs a way to play certain song or I’m going to Apple Music
Updates are breaking what isnt broken..
by joe marshal on 2019/06/19 04:21
(Premium Subscriber) I dont know where im going to switch to but Spotify went from 5 stars to less than one. It slowly started shortly after ipods were phased out, but within the past 2 years the app is becoming more of a headache than worth using. UI used to be fast, straightforward, understandable, and functional. Current UI highlights more and more features I never use and removes or hides the real “meat” of the app. I dont want a cloud streaming service, i want to be able to listen to MY library and have the option to discover everything else. Not be force fed full albums and radio/playlists from artists unrelated to my liking or genre. And if i shuffle a playlist it shuffles artist by artist instead of shuffling all the songs. Downloaded vs liked songs are very confusing and I dont want to lose the songs i like because I have to uncheck download just to partially remove the songs u unliked. If i unlike and undownload the song why is it still there? Instead of highlighting podcasts highlight the new music added to the service which should be customizable. The artists i follow and listen to rarely show up in new music i have to look on apple music then search the name to add it. But the artists i thumb down from radio always seem to show up there. Is it what i want to listen to or what spotify wants me to? Please offer a remedy I beg of you. Spotify should be songs not rocket science. Thank you for listening..
Newest update

The new update looks allot smoother and easier on the eyes. I like!
Hate the new update
by verryyfrustrated06 on 2019/06/19 04:13
I used to be able to sort my music by song, and I was able to quick scroll. they have now removed that option. They put all your liked songs on a “playlist” and it’s not longer your library. You have to scroll for days if you wanna find a song in your “playlist” and even in alphabetical order it’s a challenge. especially if you have over 500 songs saved
Doesn’t play what I select
by SparrowShan on 2019/06/19 04:13
Why is it that every time I want to listen to a specific album I’m only getting one, maybe two songs from that album and then other music starts playing. Right now for instance. I’m trying to listen to “The Greatest Showman” soundtrack, I’ve clicked into that specific soundtrack only. But after one song plays, the next song is from some other compilation?!? Why the heck would I pay for your subscription when you can’t even get the free version to work correctly!
No!!!
by Caseybam1128 on 2019/06/19 04:10
The most recent update doesn’t allow me to sort by the ‘Song’ category anymore. now it’s so hard to go down my most recent downloaded songs 🙁 which is my preferred way of listening to music. Might end up cancelling over this
Latest UI update
by Bamaounce on 2019/06/19 04:06
The latest update made the “your artists” tab an absolute. Literally nothing was wrong with the old interface. Worst of all the daily mix playlists and new music Friday’s aren’t in that tab anymore. Please revert back to the previous UI
too many ads
by game gam game game game on 2019/06/19 04:00
I was okay when there was one ad every 3-4 songs but theres 2-4 ads every 3-4 songs. Stop trying to convince people to buy premium. Another complaint is, when I'm listening to a smaller playlist on my phone it also plays the recommended songs and it’s very annoying. Other than that, the app is great. There’s a lot of music options!
If it’s not broken..
by Spotify made an oppsie! on 2019/06/19 03:57
Who at Spotify allowed their 5 year old child design this update?
1 really good reason why Spotify is the best
by Renata1107 on 2019/06/19 03:54
1) because it’s Spotify💛!
New Update is horrible
by Game addict 502 on 2019/06/19 03:41
I love this app and for years I use daily but my god this new update. Everything is a mess and it’s disorganized. The older format was amazing and easy to use but this is just confusing and scrambled all over the place. As a premium user, Spotify please go back to the old layout!!
Review
by bamabound on 2019/06/19 03:39
Hate how you only get 6 skips, shouldn't be premium
THIS IS BLASPHEMY
by lexdasex on 2019/06/19 03:39
Up until the most recent update, I had been such a Spotify lover and supporter. The new interface is not user-friendly at all. It was much better when songs, playlists, albums, artists, and recently played were all easily accessible on the “Your Library” tab. Also, getting rid of the alphabet slider is seriously so rude, just makes everything way more difficult. I’m ready to start my Apple Music free trial tomorrow (which I had never ever considered before) because of this awful update 😫 PLEASE CHANGE BACK SPOTIFY!
This is amazing
by sunflowerlover<3 on 2019/06/19 03:35

The best music streaming app. Personalized playlist on point and music suggestions accuracy
Stupid updates
by BBCstan on 2019/06/19 03:20
Again, another pointless update. I am not going to scroll through hundreds of artists just to get to the z’s or special characters... Give me the ability to scroll through the little alphabet on the right hand side again please. Also, in my “liked songs” playlist I can’t distinguish whether I want just downloaded songs to show up which is annoying if I’m offline and still have to scroll through tons of songs I can’t even play.
Worthless
by Eccohawk on 2019/06/19 03:18
No longer works after update. Guess I’m canceling my subscription.
Dumb update
by Libby56wrtt on 2019/06/19 03:17
Love Spotify, sorta hate this update.
What happened to the artist list?
by lamotteskiddalyboomboom on 2019/06/19 03:16
Current up date is a mess. It wiped out my artist list which was easy to use. Now there is a disorganized sequence and I have to refollow about 200 artists? Leave well enough alone Spotify This is the worst product update since New Coke.

Garbage UI
by awgingerale on 2019/06/19 03:14
The UI of this app is unusably abstract and ambiguous, almost no functionality as a legitimate music player.
BETTER THEN APPLE MUSIC

customized specifically to you & your taste & allows you to download music in the easiest way possible
New update

New update to UI is garbage. What is the WHY explanation?
Love it!
by AN7REW on 2019/06/19 03:05
I’ve been using Spotify premium for over 2 years. I am an Apple iPhone user and I believe firmly that’s it’s better than Apple Music.
This new update destroyed Spotify
by spacejoy_ on 2019/06/19 03:04
The UI is much too confusing now, everything is a mess, and now I need to search through all my artists again? What a waste. Huge mistake.

Going downhill
by robfire65 on 2019/06/19 02:57
Spotify used to be one of the best streaming apps, now it’s just constant ads and when you have saved play lists they just switch to random songs
This is the one and only music app
by Aforadultery on 2019/06/19 02:57
This app has replaced any need I ever had for an iPod. Almost any song you could ever want— right at your fingertips— right now. And you can download them all to your device so you don’t need to use data EVER. That’s of course only if you have premium, which is the most well-spent $10/mo I have ever dished out. They even offer a student discount of $5/mo. Crazy talk amirite?
Disappointed
by Jassbowse14 on 2019/06/19 02:40
Kind of sad that I have to get premium to listen to a song I want really listen too but other than that the app is amazing
Es fácil de bajar la música y adecuada

FANTÁSTICO
Save songs for premium
by Juliana corner on 2019/06/19 02:27
I have a premium account and the new update changed the “saved songs” into “liked songs”. I don’t listen to a certain playlist I listen to my saved songs but now since the update songs that Iv had “saved” or “liked” before show that they have not been like either when you swipe left or actually go on the song and click the green heart. But it still shows up in my “liked music”. This makes me incredibly confused because I’m unsure if I actually have the song saved or not. Also there is no bar on the side of the screen that shows the letters in which you can find the song alphabetically which there was earlier when “liked songs” was “saved songs” this makes it difficult to find certain songs, because I can’t just go down to the letter anymore. Also with the shuffle on my “liked songs”, if my filter is on to sort by title and I click “shuffle play” usually the same four songs play. I really thing the shuffling algorithm needs to be fixed because I’m not enjoying the other songs I want to listen on my “liked songs”. Moral of this is that this new update didn’t fix anything about the app but made it harder to use now that “liked songs” is treated as a regular play list and not songs that I have saved.
“Liked Songs”
by WEB_War4 on 2019/06/19 02:27
Please allow the removal of the Liked Songs playlist now pinned to the top of the playlists section.
Apple Music is better
by sirvandough on 2019/06/19 02:21
Spotify made me do this...
New Update
by Lillian1139 on 2019/06/19 02:18
The app was perfectly fine before the recent update. All you’ve done is make it less user friendly. It’s harder to find songs, your recommended artists aren’t even close to what I listen to, and I really dislike that there’s no longer a recently played list anymore.
Most Recent Update
by ijordanib on 2019/06/19 02:18
The latest update makes it even more difficult to browse through your library & find liked songs by artists you've listened to. I found previous versions of this app easier to navigate due to the layout & design.
Too many changes
by Tony guipilin on 2019/06/19 02:12
First they changed the queue location and the number of taps to get to it. Now with the new update they got rid of recently played!! Why would they get rid of something so useful for no reason?? Makes no sense and makes the app way worse.
Fix your app
by ajajajkj on 2019/06/19 02:11
I have a family share premium plan. It keeps bugging. I click a playlist and it won’t keep on the playlist even when it hasn’t ended. When I try going back a song no matter where I’m at in a playlist it always goes back to the same song. Your new update ruined my Spotify and we aren’t about to pay for your screw ups.
Unhappy
by nikktin on 2019/06/19 02:01
It keeps glitching. Randomly stops working and then plays songs from some strange playlist. Ready to get rid of subscription!

Bad update
by jd.simp on 2019/06/19 01:32
I was an avid fan fan of Spotify, but the new update changed way too much and I find it extremely frustrating to use. Definitely ending premium and switching to Apple Music by the end of this month.

by birds are KeWL on 2019/06/19 01:30
It gets really annoying when you want to listen to the music that YOU put on your playlist NOT what they give you and it’s so annoying when you want to listen to the music that you put in and not the music they put in🙄
It was better before
by leah_stars on 2019/06/19 01:24
They just recently did a new update. I believe it’s been this way for Spotify users without premium, but it was different for premium users. The “recently played” used to be in the library section, but now it’s on the home screen. And I can’t edit recently played anymore??? At least as far as I can tell. I think they should change it back to how it was.
My Playlist

Irritating
by My5t310N420 on 2019/06/19 01:02
This app should not be allowed to control my devices volume when on Spotify Connect and running in the background, that’s my job as a user to do so.
The changes don’t make the Spotify better.
by mercuryfan on 2019/06/19 01:02
The home page continues to be cluttered with no option to organize my own listening habits. I don’t want you recommending music I listened to 6 months ago. My musical taste varies. Disappointing. However there isn’t a better option available.
STOP WITH THE SHUFFLE PLAY

Horrid
by Fat Clamenza on 2019/06/19 00:52
I’m a paying user and this new version is straight crap. Everything I downloaded is available via “Albums”, but not in “Artists”. Atrocious. My fav thing to do was go to an artist, click on them, and just hit shuffle to listen to various random songs on all of their albums. Yeah, not anymore. Fix this and go back to how it was.
Great but....
by \(^o^)/( ̄ー ̄) on 2019/06/19 00:52
I love this app!!! But... it seems like when I shuffle my 2600+ songs it likes to play the same 30 songs!!! Also this app definitely needs and option to separate music by genre and possibly mood as well 🤠
Why Spotify is awesome 😎

by ghhajdl on 2019/06/19 00:17
It’s horrible. I can no longer filter by downloaded content. What purpose did making that change do exactly? Make me want to go to Apple Music instead? Most definitely.
Worst User Interface of All time
by 1s4ac on 2019/06/19 00:15
How does a company with so much money have such poor design ? Who are you hiring to do your u.i??? I hate the new update, I like the emphasis on podcast but when it comes to playing my music I have to hard dig and look for all the songs I want one at a time. Someone needs a new design head please.
Add the letters back on the side for search
by bryonnajay on 2019/06/19 00:13
With this new update, they removed the letters that can help you quickly search on the side bar of the liked songs playlist. This is very inconvenient!
Worst Update!
by rbelcher669 on 2019/06/19 00:09
Now requires you to “follow” each artist to add them to library. All the music I had in my library is just gone and now it’s in “recommended”. Duh it’s recommended I had already added it to my library before this update, but now I have to follow each individual artist to get the songs I already “liked” back into my library. Terrible update.
Unnecessary changes to the app
by Flyingtoast101 on 2019/06/19 00:07
It’s terrible now that the alphabetical scroll is gone. It’s so unorganized now and inconvenient.
Don’t Recommend At All
by A gamer XD on 2019/06/19 00:00
Yes, I use this but the new update makes me want to kill myself. CAN I JUST LISTEN TO MY FAVORITE SONGS WITHOUT HAVING TO LISTEN TO SOME ARTISTS I DON’T EVEN LIKE? At this point, I can’t listen to music like I want. My songs get skipped, songs I don’t even like or know come on, and I can’t play a 1 minute song without sitting through hours of people I don’t care about. I don’t recommend unless you want to pay, or sit though 5 ads at once and music that you don’t want to listen to. Or bad music on some ads that say bUy sPoTiFy pRenIuM nOw FoR sOnGs LiKe ThIs. I. Give. Up. On. This. App. Get YouTube or something like that. Way less ads and no need to pay to listen to music ON WIFI. I wish I could give zero stars.
Newest Update
by Rosewilla on 2019/06/18 23:55
The new update is absolutely horrible. The way that the layout has changed has completely thrown off and disrupted the entire purpose of the app. It has made it extremely inconvenient, disorganized, and downright stupid and completely changes what you can access in your music, albums, artists, playlists, etc. Every single one of my friends and family who use this app absolutely love it, until now. Everyone has been incredibly dissatisfied and even more so angry and frustrated. All across the board, social media platforms included EVERYONE AGREES ITS AWFUL. I have been a loyal defender of Spotify against apple music and other platforms, yet with something like this, I find it very hard to defend. Please change it back asap.
update 6/18
by queenofcups555 on 2019/06/18 23:54
really retarded update. can’t even find artists by songs you have saved from them, only if you follow them. also you have to scroll al the way down to find them since they got ride of the alphabet sidebar.
Why you should get Spotify
by love cubs on 2019/06/18 23:44
This App is the best I could play whatever music I want whatever you get in the App Store make sure you get one thing Olso Spotify
Best thing ever created
by Naseth on 2019/06/18 23:41
I never write reviews. Have paid for Spotify for years now and am a proud customer. I have over 30 mixes and numerous followers. I can't imagine what else the developers could possibly add to this app to make it better. Thanks Spotify team!
Amazing App!
by Raveiin (SM) on 2018/09/26 02:03
All I can say is this app is positively amazing. It is made very nicely, and although it does have an occasional advertisement, that does not possibly amount to the overall amazing quality. Definitely worth getting the premium membership feature (I don’t own it, but have used it before with a close friend of mine.) This app is a must-have if you have a busy lifestyle and love listening to music! One of my favorite features is the playlist option. You can make customized playlists to your music preference. It’s positively amazing! You can also add certain artists you like, and it customizes your daily mixes. Another great feature is the daily mixes! The app gives you daily playlists based on your favorite songs and artists, and makes a personal playlist based on the aforementioned favorite songs and artists. Altogether, it is a spectacular app that has MANY amazing features, and I’m not surprised it is so popular and successful. I hope everyone can notice the amazing quality and effort that was put into the making of this AMAZING app!
Please read this.

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.
No thanks not worth it
by Loven dis app on 2019/02/09 04:06
I think the idea of the app was spot on. I think the execution was terrible. The app is up to date and on top of these songs but it is a pain to work with. An app should always be user friendly and easy to understand but this isn’t it. I don’t like too much music and don’t know that many singers so when it made me choose three that’s a big no, it messed up my recommendations and I’m stuck with sicko mode as a recommendation because I was joking around. The app doesn’t allow you to play just one song, you have to make a playlist and if it’s not big enough it plays “recommended” music which is extremely irritating. Skipping songs only 6 times per hour is ridiculous and only there to make you pay money. Also the fact that you can’t restart your playlist after you’re done and it starts playing other music is uncalled for. I tried everything from looking it up and restarting my phone. Nothing worked. Ik there are hard core fans who know all the ins and outs of this app but that’s not the point, anyone (within reason) should be able to use and app, if they can’t then there is no point to download this app. Lastly I forgot to mention but not being able to add whole albums is also irritating, adding song by song is meticulous.
Now is unnecessarily complex
by Corndog3135 on 2019/03/02 08:53
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.
Fine app, but mean to non-premium people.
by jedihobbit on 2018/08/29 21:56
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!
Why!?!?!?
by cDNAhsjs on 2018/12/24 16:24
I don’t understand why I can do unlimited skips on my Xbox for free on my playlist and I can also switch to whatever song I want but then I try to listen to some music on my phone I have to listen to the song it is playing the whole way through before I can listen to the next one. And then you try to make me pay ten dollars a month for it when I can just go on my school chrome book and I can change the songs. And I’m not going to bring that thing up every night to listen to music. Anyways, an add came up while I was switching to the next song and it says that if you watch this add, which it was around thirty-five seconds, you get the next half hour free of adds. So I watch it and when that was done another add came up just to tell me that there was thirty minutes of no adds, it was about fifteen seconds long, it talked for literally four seconds and then the add just sat there for another eleven seconds showing me a picture of a product that I don’t even have enough money for. Alright, if you listened this far, I just want to be able to Change and skip the songs on my playlist without having to pay ten dollars a month for premium, But this is just another comment from an upset user so I will probably just get completely ignored.
Just fix it already!!!!!
by jamiejam118 on 2018/07/26 20:22
Too many adds, and why are the skips limited? Seriously? Why do I have to pay extra to not play something? Also, why can’t i skip back? Sometimes people make mistakes and accidentally press forward instead of pause or whatever and I actually do like that song. Also, why can’t I play songs that aren’t on my playlist or just pick one song to play, I just want to listen to toxic by Britney Spears, and I don’t want to have to wait through an hour of my chemical romance! Shuffle doesn’t really shuffle that well either, i was listening to my playlist and it played like, an entire musical in order! I pressed shuffle for a reason! I used to use the kindle version and even that was better, and do you guys know how terrible the kindle version was? Saying that was better than throw new iPhone updated version is saying a lot! JUST CHANGE IT BACK! Geez! I’ve read other reviews dating back to April saying about the same thing as I have, and you still haven’t changed anything! Just listen to the people already! As Dan and Phil said “ were here to give the people what they want” so why don’t you guys actually pay attention and actually do something to better our experience!
Truthfully the truth🤔
by hounest anna (on ah) on 2019/04/17 03:18
I think it’s ok. I wouldn’t recommend it though. What the app tells you your getting is that you have the music you want on easy command with minimal adds. Sounds nice huh? Well if this is there idea of music on command and “minimal” adds, I think they need to update their description to the truth. What your getting is a play list made of things with the same genre as you like, things you add, and oh, a billion different songs that have nothing to do with what you like! And the whole “just press the skip button”, you only get 6 per hour. You want to listen to uninterrupted music, well look further because with a 30 second to 1 minute long add every 2 songs you’ll regret it! Now all this can be solved by purchasing the premium option. Or can it? On my friends phone she purchase the premium option and a day later we got an add about grocery outlet bargen market. Now there are some nice things about it. Such as being able to have your phone off and still be able to listen, I love that. And being able to manage your account easily. But that’s it. I got a ratio of 2 goods per 5 bads. Thanks for listening to the whole review. It’s still better than you tube music 🎵😊
iPhone XR Update is horrible
by John1681 on 2019/03/15 00:17
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.
It’s a great app, but the update is making me angry!
by Puyopie :3 on 2019/04/21 03:31
The idea of the app is great, but... I have 3 complaints. The first would be that it’s excruciatingly irritating when I just want to listen to a few specific songs on a little playlist, and then it automatically adds some songs I don’t want to listen to. I mean, seriously?! I had no freaking complaints at all about the app before this. I just want to be able to listen to exactly what I want, exactly when I want to. I understand that maybe some people don’t find this very annoying, but, I do. So, if you made it to where you could turn off the automatically adding songs in settings, then, that would be wonderful. My second complaint is that only having shuffle play vexes me. I just want to listen to whatever I want and not be bothered by anything else (besides ads, I will tolerate those and I know that you need them in order to make money). Anything else as in songs I don’t want to hear. My third and final complaint is that I miss being able to play 1 song over and over again. That’s all I’ve got. And, my rating might seem a little harsh for something so trivial, but, that’s just how annoyed I am about this. So, if you could just please fix all of this in your next update, that would be much appreciated!
ideas
by Ynattirb rekceb on 2018/04/22 15:40
I love this app so much. i use it everyday almost constantly. it always works for me and has all the music i want. when i’m using it though i always think of two things i wish it had. 1) be able to combine playlists together so i don’t have to switch over to a different one while i’m driving. there’s the “add to” option for songs but if you could hold down the playlist and it said “add to” and then you could select playlist you want to add the other to that would actually be the best feature ever. 2) i wish you could change the order of songs singularly in a playlist. with premium i know you can choose whichever song you want to hear next but when i’m sleeping or driving i don’t want to have to manually change it or have it in shuffle. there’s been times i wish i could drag the songs around because i want songs to be heard in a certain order so being able to drag it around while editing the playlist would be awesome!

by Slurptalon3000 on 2018/07/10 05:58
I used to love it so much before the update. When you close out the app and come back later, the playlist you were on, you aren't on it anymore, it takes you to your recently played. And that new 30 minutes of ad free music ad is really annoying. I dislike how it says- "Yes really..yadayadayada" that's bugging me. And that ad plays right after the very first song I listen to is over. EDIT: There are WAY too many ads dude. Like seriously. Even when you click on that "No, I want to keep the ads" ITS STILL PLAYS A HECKIN AD. And I feel like you've been deleting A LOT of songs that I enjoy. I'm starting to go to SoundCloud and Musi because you've been deleting my songs. EDIT 2: PLEASE turn down the volume on your ‘get 30 mins ad free’ ads. Like, I have my volume all the way up sometimes and the ad is louder than any of my songs and it hurts my ears. EDIT 3: The only time I can get 30 mins ad free is when I first open the app. I know it used to pop up with that dude saying get your 30 minutes ad free by watching a short ad. And it waits for about 10 seconds for you to click ‘watch video’ but now the woman says it, doesn’t wait, plays 3-4 ads in a row and doesn’t give 30mins. Fix this please!
Followed Artists & Lagging
by Mayaily123 on 2019/04/05 22:16
(Still hasn’t changed) All the artists that I am following immediately disappear, as soon as I go on one of their profiles it says that I’m not following them and I’m not sure if that’s a glitch or if I’ve reached the maximum amount… But it needs to change. This has been going on for over a year. I’ve been a premium member for five years and have never had this problem. Also with the newest update, I’ve noticed when I play songs it lags when I try to shuffle to another song or go to another artists profile. Or when I’m adding a song to a playlist, there will be a long pause instead of adding it right away. But when I first start the app after I’ve had it closed out, it’s fast. Then as I do more things on it or add to playlists, it gets slower. If I press to add a song to a playlist, it’ll have a long pause before it loads my playlists. If I slide the time of the song and fast forward a bit, it pauses in between. It’s just annoying. I have an iPhone XS Max so... I’d assume it would be faster but. I absolutely HATE this update. It’s so slow and the screen freezes when I’m pausing songs or skipping ahead
Uh, put the old edit feature back please
by WhiteHawk23 on 2019/03/19 13:52
Absolutely awesome app, been using it for years and I am a music lover so I will use nothing else. However this latest update that changed the edit feature to put you back at the top of your playlist so you have to scroll down to the song you want to delete (for me that’s 250 deep) and then to tap the minus button and have the song instantly disappear- please don’t do that. My eyes can sometimes play tricks on me and I can select the wrong song to delete. With this new feature it’s all too easy to press the wrong song and WHOOP it’s gone and you have to remember what it was and go and find it again. While I’m writing a review, though, can y’all put an option to turn on or off the music video clips that MOVE THE PAUSE AND PLAY BUTTON because when I’m driving I know where that normal button is without looking but y’all move it for random songs. It’s very distracting too to have those video clips on while doing homework but I enjoy having the app open and my phone not locked so I can pick through music quickly without having to navigate through my phone every time.
Inconvenient
by Thatrandomcheeseburger on 2019/04/08 16:25
Great music player and I would definitely recommend it, if they didn’t make so difficult to play a single song. If you want to play just one song, chances are, it will play a totally different song that you didn’t want to hear. It has a feature called “extra songs” that add recommended songs to you, which wouldn’t be a problem if they didn’t play those songs BEFORE the song you wanted to listen to in the first place. They also add extra songs to your playlists. There is no work around this issue. You can stop all the extra songs one at a time from playing, but it takes forever and if it’s a song from one of your other playlists it’ll delete the song from that playlist as well. You can skip the song, but you only have six skips a day unless you get the premium version, which wouldn’t be a problem except for the fact that you can’t get the premium on the app. Which eliminates the entire point of this app...convenience. This problem would be SO easy to fix, but they deliberately try to make the app inconvenient so you’ll buy the premium version that you can’t get on the app! If you’re looking for a good music player, use ITUNES.
I liked the older version
by Dansam44 on 2018/07/31 14:21
I used to love this app but now it’s gotten so frustrating to use. The new update took away a lot of features that made this app nice to use. I almost never listened to playlists or albums, I always shuffle played all the songs I had. Without the “My Songs” section, I feel like I’m listening to the same stuff all the time and it’s annoying to have to constantly go on my phone and switch between albums and playlists. I liked when every song I saved was in one place. And it’s even more frustrating that you can’t albums to playlists anymore. I have to wait until the song actually plays to add it to an already existing playlist. If I want to add an entire album to a playlist I can’t anymore. And now I can’t even play albums because whenever I click on them none of the songs or a play button appears. Idk what’s going on with this app but you guys need to change it back. The new update is terrible and many people are complaining about it so you should listen to your users. I loved this app cause with the amount of music I like, I’d be broke using Apple Music. Please make the app better like it was before cause I do love using it.
Look
by Takfhsjb on 2019/03/27 00:46
It’s hard to find songs I had recalled and recommend songs are sort of bad. Now, I’m not sure if the computer’s choice of song as a recommendation are blatantly narrow, due to typical music quality or beat, but it get the atmosphere, tone, and rhythm of recommended song don’t satisfy. I’m selfish, sure, but SoundCloud does that for me; flowing with my vibe. I have some suggestions, and they go as listed: 1. I know Shazam already exists, but with this company’s massive art library, I think it’ll probably work better, but adding something that can detect songs sung or play would definitely help. 2. Able to listen to a 15 second snippet of a song, why not hear and judge the song if someone would like it. It’s hell when you have to take a risk of opening a song, only to get an ad and then later get another. If it’s too much work going through all music, you could notify a small survey asking listeners which section a song they enjoy the most. 3. Better recommended song instead of playlists of the same artist, cuz this is also another reason why ghost artist are masked by repetitive artist recommendations -w-
Timing out?
by Fallenzero1 on 2018/05/03 23:02
This app was great up until a few updates ago. I’ve held off on posting because I was hoping that te next update or the next would fix the problem I’m having. Almost every time I pause my music for more than a couple minutes, it’s like the app refreshes itself. I can hit the play/pause button all day and it won’t do anything. I have to physically go into the app and restart the music. It’s becoming very frustrating to have to go into the app almost every time I pause my music. Update: the timing out problem has been worse and worse!!! More often than not, when I pause, I have to go back into the app to let it reload. Something else it’s started doing within the last few updates, is sometimes, after it times out a couple times, it will show the time on a song counting up, but the song will not be playing. When I pause it, it jumps back to 0:03, and jumps forward to wherever it was when I hit play again, still with no sound. The only way to fix that is by completely closing out of the app and reopening it. At this point, the only reason I’m still paying $9.99 a month for this is because I don’t have reliable WiFi when I’m not home, and I like to listen while I’m out and about.
Decent UI and gets the job done
by UserChecksOut on 2019/04/27 21:41
There are certainly some problems with this new UI. One being, I have to open the flick up menu for the song I’m playing to get to the queue list. Also, the voice thing to search for a song is pointless. And more than likely might not understand what you’re trying to say. I one tried to ask it to play G.O.A.T. By Polyphia And it played a song by Sia. Also, you just look like an idiot if you’re talking to your phone out in public. If I ask my phone to play Sexy back by Justin Timberlake I’m more than likely going to get weird looks. The app is for the most part fluid and a good experience. I can easily make playlists and it’s much easier to edit, remove and move around songs within the playlists now. The thing I hate the most isn’t even about the app. It’s the people complaining about the free version. But that’s just my opinion. If you don’t like it go try out Trebel. Only problem is you’ll get far less songs and still have ads, and some songs can be downloaded but still need WiFi to listen to them.
Uh it’s okay.👌
by RyanjcGamez on 2019/06/17 15:39
It’s good. It’s better than Pandora (which I deleted my account on 😏). It’s amazing how you can connect to more apps than just Facebook. You can connect to Discord, uh, and other apps that I don’t know. 🙃 But there is one problem. On computer, TV, and other devices you can turn off shuffle and/or turn on replay, but when it’s on the normal mobile version, you can’t? You can only do it on the mobile version if you have premium I think. There’s even the shuffle and replay buttons when you connect your phone to your TV, so I know you guys can do it. It’s just stupid how you can’t turn on/off shuffle and replay on mobile WITHOUT PREMIUM. You can do it on mobile with premium, but you can also do it for free on all the other devices. So what’s the point? I guess it doesn’t really matter at this point since my dad is thinking of getting the family premium plan. But still, you guys should still do it, because that’s just crappy. Edit a few minutes after submitting this review: Oh, you also can’t skip forward or rewind the song without being connected to a TV or having premium. 🙃
Podcast issues
by Lvira on 2019/05/10 14:36
I use to love the app for the podcasts. I don’t know if the issues since the first of the year are built in to push premier not. I am a big Stuff You Missed in History Class fan. I have been catching up on it and used to be I could sort it by un head and older podcasts and got through it in order that way. Then it started playing the previous podcast I just heard, so driving I had to either listen or cut app off. Driving and operating an app is dangerous so I disconnect via steering wheel. Then it stopped showing podcasts as being played. Now it does not sort and have to scroll through all podcasts to find last one. Well when that is done it goes back to the previous listened podcast. So long story short I cannot listen in car or at work. I will find another way of listening to all different podcasts. There are some nice ones out there. I would pay for premium if the downgrades are fixed but no notice was given. I gave a 3 star rating as there is nothing wrong with the music portion. I can hear my faves including foreign groups like Lordi. If fixed will update.
Noice music needs some updates doe
by ++Wolfe21++ on 2019/03/17 02:39
Ok, so first of all, Amazing app with outstanding potential but there are some drawbacks. first you get adds every time you start a play list or you’re on the middle of one, So please fix this problem(Tbh idk if it’s just me) Second, The shuffle is horrible when you want songs you think of in your head that are in your playlist (Supprisingly) they come out to be the next song but then there are the songs that are horrible in your playlist but you think of ‘em so they turn out to be the next song...(I truly don’t know if this is just me) plus I get songs that I haven’t heard in weeks and suddenly break down the door and release their deep bass on me while my headphones are in at full volume (rip ears) Third, Make it easier to find and at the very least - like the skip option - Allow us to have a limited amount of selections on the songs you want to start off with like 5 a day or something like that, overall Amazing app.
Changes (not for the better)
by limpfuckedmebizkit on 2019/04/16 15:45
I loved this app, easily worth paying ten bucks a month for. However, this new update they’ve implemented has completely butchered some of the little things that made the app so brilliant. Daily Mixes are no longer endless, something that was so useful for someone who spends so much time in the car in one given day. There’s also no longer an intuitive way to see what you were recently playing, as hitting “Your Library” brings you straight to your playlists now, instead of being tucked away in a convenient tab in YL. And maybe I’m just crazy, but playing music seems so much... slower? It’s almost as if the app needs time to process the song after I hit play, which seems to make sense when you think about it, except for the fact that it was most certainly not like this in the previous iteration of the app. The only reason I’m not giving this a lower score is because it’s still got all the same music from before, all my playlists are the same, so I can’t fault them for that. But if these changes aren’t fixed in due time then I’m definitely jumping ship and going to another service.
Recent issues
by Señor Siete on 2019/03/25 02:30
I hate the new update, nothing good has come from it.... I hate that now in your recently played, if you tap a recently played artist, it takes you to their page and not your songs you have saved. It’s super inconvenient and stupid. Also I don’t like that you’ve never been able to see who follows your playlists, or when someone follows you. Also It would be great if the app actually informed you on recent activity with all the artists you follow, and not just random ones on unprecedented occasions. It would be super awesome too if when you shuffle or just out on one of your longer playlists, it actually plays through All THE SONGS, not just like a fraction of them expecting you to be content by then. Just because a playlist may be over 10 hours doesn’t mean I don’t want to hear all of them, it means I made a ten hour playlist with songs I WANT TO HEAR 💀 Anyway, that’s been my recent beef with the app I think is superior anyway
Please help
by Uni_love11505 on 2018/06/28 09:44
Please help me. I downloaded the app but for some reason I can’t make an account. I got the button to do so and nothing happened. I tried to hit the button to log in to see if that one worked but it didn’t. If someone can help me, please do. Thank-you! Edit: I finally got it to work ( lol ) and I love it!! I can listen to my music without needing a subscription like some other music apps I have downloaded. The ads are a little annoying but at least you CAN get rid of them :). The fact you can download any song you want is great! I can listen to my k-pop and then a 2018 hit right after and that’s amazing! The other folder things ( I don’t know what to call them ( sorry ) ) are good because you can listen to new music you haven’t heard before. Sure you listen to a lot of music you don’t like but you find songs you do like quite a bit :). All in all, I love the app even with its few cons. 🙃
Updates seem like they are going backwards.
by David Mr.D on 2019/03/22 05:34
Overall I like the app. Under artists theres a part on the right side to find artists easier by letter. I like this feature except for the fact that they keep taking this feature away and putting it back in every other update. PLEASE just give us an option to decide if we want it or not. Also I hate the newest update! Under recently played you used to be able to go straight to the music you have listened to recently. For instance if you were listening to artist abc under your artists page, then all the music you saved used to show up under recently play. Now instead it goes to the artist page where you can download more of their music. This also requires you to load it which kinda takes away the usefullness of downloading the music so you dont have to load it. PLEASE FIX. This is so stupid im pretty sure if we wanted to go to the artist page we could figure it out. Give us the ability to customize these changes in the app how we like, that would be amazing. Since these new changes have went through ive been thinking about using some other music app.
I love it but...
by andygirl82 on 2018/12/14 03:00
I love the app!! It’s so amazing! It lets me choose songs and shuffle them. It’s got some amazing song options, and I love the idea of having folders of music. I also love how every song is FREE!! I also love the amount of skips I get for the not premium version. I do have two problems though. I swear every two songs there are like 8 ads. Maybe bring it down. I can’t afford premium, and many others can’t, so this is a problem for them too. Maybe play 3 songs then 1 ad. That would be better. The only reason I use Pandora is because they have barely any ads. Another thing, after I’ve finished listening to every song on the playlist, you just play songs that have nothing to do with what I was listening to. Say I have a playlist with a whole bunch Latino songs. Maybe 150. I’ve listened to all of them in shuffle, and then you start playing like, Linken Park or Fall Out Boy. It literally has NOTHING to do with what I was listening to. Maybe fix that. Everything else is fine. Thanks! -Alexa Anderson
Great App!
by Penguindayday on 2018/04/03 21:15
I immediately feel in love into this app when I got it! The pros of this app are that the large variety of songs and artist, which is spectacular! I also enjoy listening the fact that you can save as many songs as you'd like. The fact that you are allowed to have the free trial for premium is magnificent, but I have not tried it yet. I also like the fact that you can watch an ad to get rid of advertisements for a half an hour, so I can listen to music without interruptions. However, there are quite a few cons. First, you can't listen to a thirty second preview of new songs, which saved lots of time. Then, there's also the fact that unsaved songs of yours can randomly start playing, which is great for discovering some new songs and artist, but gets irritating when I want to listen to my songs. Other than that, this app is great for playing any song while out of the app, and I'm sure I will still be a user in the future! Keep improving the app to make it better and better!
One more suggestion...
by Phillip Colligan on 2018/11/26 04:35
I am really loving the new updates… It would be nice to be able to click on the three dots on a song that's playing from your playlist and have the option to delete directly while playing that song from the playlist instead of having to go edit the playlist, find the song and then delete it. The app crashes and also makes me restart my playlist. I wish the playlist would always hold its play point (songs already played during playlist session vs songs left to play) and resume from the streaming service. I wish I could save me play point across each session. Let’s say playlist 1 has 10 songs and playlist 2 has 20 songs. If in pause playlist 1, I want to resume playlist 2 from whatever song it was playing before instead of starting allllll over. When I leave from playing playlist 1 on my Bose at my house, I want to resume in my truck from that same play point or have the option to have playlist 2 play instead.
Library Interface changed, can't find things
by Nostronimo on 2018/05/27 20:00
As a free user I loved it before the recent (may 17th) update and would have given it 5 stars because everything was readily organized where I could easily find albums or music I liked and was similar to the computer app or how the iTunes library looked. more specifically I liked I could somewhat choose what I wanted to listen to at just that current moment with what I've placed in those playlists, with the shuffle and limited skips of course with the occasional random addition of music. Now however I can't find any of that and just have a favorites section that plays everything, or I have to find the artist stuff itself on the mobile app and be forced to listen to all of that, even things I don't like which I can't thumbs down (as far as I can tell) and never have to listen to it again. I can't find anything now, and if I wanted things like this I'd just use the pandora interface where I have some control with the free features on pick choosing what I want and don't want in the list.
It used to be great
by Daffin Chuck on 2017/11/01 23:37
I've used this app for years and up until a few weeks ago, I loved it, but now it's just frustrating. Whenever I go to listen to one of my playlists, I hear a couple of my songs that I actually put on the playlist and then all that plays are a bunch of random suggested tracks that are often not even related to the kind of music that was originally on the playlist. I can see how (because I don't have premium) playing a few suggested tracks every once in a while might be acceptable but I rarely hear the songs that I have saved or that I even want to listen to anymore. Another thing is that the app now often glitches out. Sometimes it won't load any of the music even when I know that the connection is good. No matter how many times I hit the shuffle button, nothing will play. It will also randomly skip songs without me hitting the skip button or even touching my phone. This used to be such a good music app but now there are so many glitches that it's just not very enjoyable to use anymore.
Sweet and not so cool
by Three_tree88 on 2018/01/17 03:11
Great for iPad and computer but horrible for iPhone. Are you kidding me?? So I can't play whatever I want on an app on my phone without paying premium?? It'd be tight if I can play whatever I want on my phone. Least let me play my playlists without discovering "new" songs that I don't give a crap about. If you force me to shuffle my music and play songs I don't want at least don't make the app free. It's a huge turn off to get a free app only to not really enjoy the app unless you pay premium which is a lot for a mobile app when I can with the same app play whatever I like on my iPad and computer so why can't it be the same for mobile. I recommend it for computer and iPad but for mobile I'd pass unless there is a way for me to play my music even if it's just shuffling without playing music I don't want. Why do this to us who don't want to pay for premium for mobile. I don't really care for music that's "discovering". I just want the music in my library. I don't even mind the ads. I'll stick to pandora for discovering new music.
Changes
by Love156 on 2019/01/21 23:27
When the app was updated they got rid of some the best thing. I would love to see them come back. How many songs are in the playlist, how many followers they have and the search system. I would love to see new changes like putting your playlist in a certain order. With ocd this is very bothersome. I want to put playlist in an order that I use them and move them all around To an order I like not of how they were made. I can’t keep organized. I would also like to see ways to access the radios. When I get tired of my songs and want to find new ones I want to listen to the playlist radio. I have no idea how to get to them. I also think for organizational purposes I would love to see a select button where you can select multiple songs to add them, take away or move to a different playlist. The old features I would love to see come back. I love the app and I’m on it all the time but I would love to see changes to make the experience over all more appealing.
iPad app is better
by DatBoi4423 on 2019/01/07 01:15
When I switched from my iPad to my phone for this app(cuz it’s more portable and has data) there were a lot of things that just weren’t there. I couldn’t skip back and I had a limited amount of skips. I couldn’t choose where/what song on my playlist to start on, and couldn’t turn off shuffle. Also, I’ve realized that I’m getting an add or 2 after each song after listening to this playlist for a few days.(a few hrs a day) Its just annoying to have that many adds cuz it really messes up the flow. Plz make it like how it was a few years back with the adds, like 2 adds for every 5 songs, but otherwise the app is pretty good. But the only other thing is that song a that I’ve never added to my playlist are popping up out of nowhere, and it’s kinda annoying cuz when you run out of skips, it’s almost guaranteed that if you don’t select the do not play button, that it W I L L play when you run out of skips. But otherwise, great app but 5* for iPad and more like 3* for iPhone cuz the adds and skips, but ya great app.
All songs?
by SpicyPeaches on 2018/12/27 21:23
It’s an awesome app to listen to music, but you can’t see all the songs by an artist. Only the most popular and latest release. That makes it almost impossible to find some songs. You should be able to search songs from an artist. Also, it reset my entire app! I went on to play some music and then it made me log in. Apparently, it didn’t save my account. Now I have none of my saved songs or any playlists. I also wish there was diversity all the recommended songs are immediately rap and pop music. I myself am NOT a fan of rap or pop. I know there a lot of other types of music and people who feel how I feel about those genres, there should be a mix. Like instead of always making it Ariana Grande, XXX, Drake, e.t.c (I swear I learned pop and rap music from your recommendations.)there could be some Vance Joy, Alt-J (Δ), The Lumineers. That would be nice. Also having a page to access queue easier would be great. Lastly, there should be a page where lesser known artists could get known.
Blatant lies
by Matthew Simmons on 2019/05/20 04:45
Don’t list your features as shuffle play when you’ve established a set playlist. I tested your forces “shuffle play” mode and when I switched between stations and then switched back it was the same song and not only that but it was the same place in the song. Shuffle is a lie if you keep playing the same song in the same position every time it’s a set playlist not a shuffle play. If you really want people to spend money on your app it had to work for free in order to entice people to spend money on it, a broken app doesn’t entice paid followers. Please don’t lie to me and then try to sell me a premium service that is the same service minus you dicking me and all other potential customers over. Shuffle means something as does every other word in the English language. I would not describe myself as a paid subscriber if I had not “paid” because in English words have set meanings that society only sustainably exists because we all agree on the definitions. If I tell you I’m going to touch you in a shuffled position, and every time I punch you in the face, it’s not really shuffled is it....don’t lie to me and then try to charge me money.
Could use some work, otherwise good
by anon1946372 on 2018/03/11 04:50
As a music streaming app, it works great. I can deal with ads and limited skips, or pay for premium. It isn't perfect and it has its issues but I want to specifically address this one. The way the playlist radio functions is absolute garbage unless you pay for premium. If you like a song, you can never undo that action and liked songs will repeatedly show up when you use the radio, thus forcing you to listen to it or waste one of your already limited skips. I have songs I liked months ago still showing up, regardless of whether they're in my playlist or not. Songs that I don't want to hear constantly. This makes it difficult to discover new music without wasting my time. I understand that as a free user I shouldn't be able to skip everything, but making me deal with this is insult to injury. The least you could do is take these songs out of the queue, or allow us to "unlike" them.
Nice App
by Notorious M.I.T. on 2018/10/09 02:37
Just some things I kinda want, instead of lyrics and tidbits on the song can there just be lyrics so I can sing along without wondering what the exact lyrics are 😅 if possible jump into a song a friend is currently listening to at the same spot and time they are listing to 😅 live group/couple listening 😆 probably too much to ask. Just want more social/intimate. Over all great clean app, no problems like running into covers you don’t want to listen to or misleading titles of tracks, you get the exact song you want every time, harder to find certain underground tracks but there’s a good amount that you’d be surprised is on this app, the app is super organized and clean you never feel lost, I love this app, for the longest time I wasn’t sure about premium but once I was in it’s so nice hard to turn back, bit of a luxury but I don’t mind it, I’ll stay here till I get pointed to something better 😜
Going to lose a loyal customer
by Ladybug483 on 2018/05/27 18:43
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).
I love this app but...
by BM022020 on 2018/12/15 19:18
This app is amazing, I can listen to all my favorite songs when I want and it’s great for taking long trips that I have to drive which I do very often. I also love using it while doing homework. There are only two downsides to this app. Lately when it offers the 30mins of unlimited listening without adds and I click to watch the add it just goes right back to my music and doesn’t let me listen without adds. The other thing is that I don’t have the money to pay for the monthly Prime. I’m only 16 I don’t have a job or a bank account that I can pay for the unlimited music. Yes, I understand that they have to have some way to pay for the app to still be up I just wish there was another way for me to get the unlimited music without adds and be able to listen offline. But other than those two things I love this app and would recommend it to anyone.
its okay.
by maddy durot on 2019/05/28 01:29
1st problem, the limited skips. on iphone you have 6 or 7 skips per hour. thats bull. so if you just dont like a song on ur playlist that day, you have to use a skip. 2nd problem. the recomending songs. instead of playing the playlist over again it gives u recomended songs. i understand the idea of that, but idk its just not executed well. 3rd problem, playing a playlist over again is too much work. ok so if a playlist just ended and u wanted to listen to it again, you cant click “ shuffle play” again, you have to play another playlist, then click shuffle play on that playlist, then go back to the playlist you want to play again THEN click shuffle play. 4rth problem. THE AMOUNT OF ADS. OMG THERE ARE TOO MANY. there are ads dor every 8 songs i think, but theres a skip ad button and even if u click the button that says “SKIP” WICH YOU WOULD EXPECT TO SKIL THE AD, IT DOESNT AND JUST PLAYS THE AD. anyways, overall the app is good, but if u have the opportunity to have apple music instead, go with apple music.
Not updating g till some features are brought back
by RexFoley on 2019/05/18 05:47
I get that apple is being stupid and petty with y’all, but I have the version right before the alphabetical scroll bar was removed. My brother has the newer versions, and I noticed on his the UI has gone to hell. My main gripe is with the removal of the scroll bar, and from what other reviews I see here, the saved artists pages has gone backwards in quality. I know that apple’s push for Apple Music puts y’all in a difficult situation, but if they have a scroll bar why can’t you. I’ve been trying to police myself from updating it and I’ve had to cancel a few close call updates to prevent the features I like from disappearing. Please add them back instead of every update being “big fixes”. If whatever little glitches are “bugs”, then the removal and downgrade in UI is a roach-wasp hybrid that needs to be squashed. Please. I’m tired of seeing the red symbol on my App Store app and having to individually update every app because I can’t press the “update all” button
Love the app but hate the new update
by Goldless1 on 2018/08/03 10:43
I was listening to music on my PS4 when I realized that you guys deleted like 200+ of my music. Like why would you do that or have an update that does that. An its only for the phone. All my music is on the PS4 but when I go past or try to past the 800 song I can’t get to it ( on the phone I mean) . Plus, I have the app on automatic updates so I couldn’t choose weather I wanted to update it or not. I would love if you just put it back like the way it was. I use this app a lot between my Iphone and my PS4. I feel like it was much more convenient the way it was before. I have to admit the fact that I couldn’t see the rest of my song kinda forced me into writing this review I literally never do these but I felt like I had to in this case since I use this app sooo much. And the whole app this way is something I feel like I won’t be able to get used to with the way that it is set up now . Thank You for Coming to my TED TALK
Edit: Great Service, bad update to Recently Played
by Tplhvbg on 2019/06/14 23:05
The newest update changed the path taken from the “Recently Played” icons, which used to send you to your saved collection of that artist’s work. Now clicking on a recently played artist takes you to that artist’s page, rather than your saved collection of that artist’s work. I understand that this can help users discover more of the new music, but I have specific songs saved for a reason: they are the songs by that artist I enjoy and want to listen to again. Please change it back or make this a user prompted option. Otherwise the GUI is intuitive and helpful. *** Edit 6/14 (Switching 4 stars to 1): When I wrote this review several months ago, I was slightly annoyed by the new GUI in the recently played. Boy, I did not realize how much worse it could get. This new update almost makes the app unusable for someone trying to find their music in any way similar to what has been standard for the last 5 years. Undo this update or I will switch to Apple Music. I don’t pay this much money for your designers, programmers, and managers to make their product worse.
Dislike new update
by Geores92 on 2019/02/28 10:32
Updated recently and the changes made to operating are frustrating. My normal use, is listening to my downloaded playlists. Before, I could select a song and the “shuffle” option would stay on. This no longer happens, so it would play the order it’s in (alphabetical, easier to find by title). If you play outside the “queue” it will play in order no matter what. My second issue which is even more frustrating, if when searching for a song within a playlist, the only music it will play is within that search. My most used playlist has 270+ songs, but a search for let’s say “Post Malone” will bring up all matches, but when I select, it will only play “Post Malone” instead of other songs on the playlist. Third, there was a step added to opening the queue. Before, you could pull up the “Now Playing” screen and just click on queue. Another step was added, not a big deal but feel it is not needed. The queue also also goes away after the next song starts which also did not happen before.
Amazing App just two issues
by Magzzsszzzzssss9726😒 on 2018/03/30 17:06
I love this app and as a premium subscriber it suns even better. However, there's been a really annoying glitch that doesn't allow me add more songs to a playlist I just created. The number of songs isn't even the issue because it will simply not register my tap and if it does it will freeze and not add the song to the newly created playlist. This has been going for a few weeks now. Apart from this there use to be an amazing preview feature that allowed you to press on a song without playing or queuing it and it'd give you a 30 second preview of it-please bring this back it saved a lot of time. Aside from these issues though I strongly recommend this app, especially if you decide on premium. You can listen to your favorite songs in any order while offline and while traveling (airplane or road trips).
Great App but Preview Feature Is Gone!
by Ebr2002 on 2017/11/16 23:25
I love this app. It’s my primary music platform and has been for years now. I’m a premium subscriber and think it’s a great value for what you get, at least if you listen to even half as much music as I do (which is a lot, admittedly, but still...$10 a month of unlimited access to all songs, all playlists I or any other user has ever created, etc, all for the price of a single iTunes album? I used to buy at least one and sometimes tons more each month on iTunes. Now I pay $10 and that’s it. Nice. So why only 4 stars? They took my beloved Preview feature away. I loved being able to tap and hold on a particular song and hear a good 30 seconds of it without actually having to add it to the queue or play it all the way through. Or tap an album and preview most or all of the songs on it before committing to actually playing everything in full. It was great. And I want it back. Please?
Mmm
by AlphfaWulf on 2018/11/15 23:41
So, one it won’t even let me install the app on my iPad, it keeps saying an unknown error has occurred please try again. So I do, and it still doesn’t work. Two, the actual app has way too many ads, for example there is one that says “Tap now to get 30 minutes with no ads” so obviously I click it while thing ends, I listen to my song, and boom. Ad. Right there in the middle of my listening. Three, I feel like you don’t have enough skips or that there is something in the algorithm that makes it so you have all of the songs you don’t want to listen to and then you land on a song you hate (if that makes any sense at all) I believe it’s only 5 skips but even still. Four, I don’t like how it just takes a short playlist of your, say 5 songs, and when you play it, it plays ‘suggested songs’. I have a playlist so that I can listen to all the songs I want one right after the other, not so that you can just be like oH hEy, LeTs PlAy ThIs SoNg nOw. Anyway, I probably have more to complain about,I just can’t think of it off the top of my head.
ZERO STARS until further NOTICE!.!.!
by ANGfilmz on 2018/09/28 07:00
The last couple of updates are nothing more than a nuisance! I used to love this app, I didn’t care if it was on a premium account or free but the last few updates made using the app a little unbearable in a few ways. There’s NO LONGER a ‘MY SONGS’ TAB which makes the app less pleasurable to use. I can no longer see SPECIFIC SOMGS under an artist WITHOUT HAVING to FOLLOW the artist and LIKE ALL of their songs. I literally go to my ‘ARTIST’ TAB and DON’T see ANY of the songs I like, and I’m FORCED to play ALL of the artist’s songs INSTEAD of the many that I only LIKE by the artist. I DON’t want to HAVE to make a PLAYLIST every time I want to hear only 23 of the 84 tracks from a single artist it’s RIDICULOUS. It also PLAYS the EXACT same SONGS over and over even when in shuffle. The updates took over half of my songs away and I’m LIVID. And it RANDOMLY plays songs and artists that have NOTHING to do with the playlist or genre I’m TRYING to listen to. This app needs to return back to it’s former glory I’ve been really fighting for this app. People try to sway me over to PANDORA but I DON’T want to resort to using that crud.

Also please for the love of Pete, give us the ability to download individual songs you cretans.

6/14/19 app is terrible
by jesse mayne on 2019/06/19 09:34
App is ruined. New setup is preposterous and ruined functionality. Very tedious and involved to actually use. On my way to Apple Music it was nice while it lasted
A joke
by surviveditall on 2019/06/19 08:58
Update made this pandora. Major steps backwards

Pay artists the same as tidal
I like it
by nanihurst on 2019/06/19 07:44
I like that the free version forces you to branch out and not be so picky with your music
New update
by L0ng_H0rn on 2019/06/19 07:36
The UI was just fine and worked well and all this update did was complicate things.

New update

This new update is terrible I can’t even see my song library based on my recents saves anymore... if I want to listen to my library I have to search up every individual album and select the individual song from that album... it’s terrible and if it’s not fixed I’ll be headed back to Apple Music
Spotify Music app
by Arbie's iPhone on 2019/06/19 06:33
I have iHeartRadio and Spotify Music apps on my current three devices. The two are virtually equal but Spotify excels in clear music quality, ease of use and features—and it’s free. What a find.
Enjoying Spotify

Super.
Love it, but...
by Jane Arial Banks on 2019/06/19 06:02
I love this app, but I wish it showed the lyrics for songs!
This update is awful
by 498:628/94 on 2019/06/19 05:52
Go back to the old format. This one is so confusing, it’s hard to see recently played. There is no longer the alphabetical scroll so it takes forever to get to the bottom of a list. Ughhh so frustrating. (Also lol to the people complaining about how there shouldn’t be ads in the free version)
FAVORITE APP BUT...
by Bobylovessocks on 2019/06/19 05:51
This is my favorite app! I found this app by searching: “Music apps without WiFi,” but I tried playing music at a place without WiFi on my phone. Although everything worked, the app told me to check the connection and the music didn’t play. Other than that great app!
Thank you
by payyto12 on 2019/06/19 05:49
I wish this was like youtube so I could pick different songs and skip. Because what petiole don’t want to go premium or just don’t have the money right now? It’s a great app still and I love it.

La nueva actualización es un asco ahora no aparece la lista por pistas solo por álbum , artista y playlist 👎👎👎👎👎👎
New update is TRASH
by _kc04_ on 2019/06/19 05:37
What is with this new update? Why would you guys take out the option to search and sort by song titles? I enjoyed the option of shuffling my music, now it’s only under artists and their radio? Get it together Spotify before I switch back to Apple Music! Shame on you for this whack update.
Easy to use
by idris625 on 2019/06/19 05:30
This is atop Apple Music and its performances say so. The outlay of Spotify is attracting and it has more than any other music streaming services.
Hate this new update!
by simba6795 on 2019/06/19 05:30
I hate the new update I can’t even see any of my artists. It’s so disorganized!!! Spotify please change this back
Making it harder to listen to my liked songs
by Gavin Horoszewski on 2019/06/19 05:27
I’m not liking how my saved music is being treated more and more like any other playlist these days. I have something like 500+ liked songs on my account, and I’ve enjoyed being able to quickly scroll up and down through the songs when I sort them by title and drag my finger along the letters on the right side of the screen. I’d been able to do this only on my liked songs, and not on any other playlist. As of a few hours ago, the look of the app has changed, and while I can still sort by title, the letters aren’t on the right side of the screen any more, and as a result, I can’t do that thing I mentioned. It’s a little thing, but it’s bugging me right now, so I’m giving the app a low rating at the moment, even though I very much enjoy using Spotify premium on a regular basis. Also, the same mini-update made it harder to access my liked songs. I don’t remember *exactly* how it was done just yesterday, but I know that being unable to access my liked songs from anywhere but the “playlists” sub-tab under the “Your Library” tab was not the case until these past few hours. “Liked Songs” (or “Saved Music”) had been its own thing for years, and now it’s being treated like any other playlist, and I don’t particularly care for these changes. I’d be more than happy to write a more positive review or to edit this one if these issues are addressed in the near future. In the meantime, I’m leaving this 1-star review for one of the most-used apps on my phone.
TOO MANY ADDS FOR PREMIUM

TOO MANY ADDS FOR PREMIUM
New update is bad!!!!
by Bob124141414726 on 2019/06/19 05:08
I don’t like the new update. Please go back to something simple. I like having my recently played there. I don’t like the new set up.
The new update is HORRIBLE
by butt0nbear on 2019/06/19 04:53
I loved the Spotify app. Loved. As in past tense. Whose brilliant idea was it to put all the saved songs into a playlist??? Now whenever I want to look for a song I have to search for it by name as opposed to using the sidebar to search alphabetically. And then it only plays the song I searched for. It doesn’t continue to play the rest of my saved songs. The UX is just horrible now. Please stop the madness. Bring back the old UX. I pay for Spotify Premium so I can listen to my music. I don’t pay for it so I can search by name for each song and be subject to these inane UI updates because someone thought it would be cute to change a library to a playlist.
Boo!
by Paid u jeueujejdidibx on 2019/06/19 04:40

I want to be able to pick a certain song/order in my playlist but spotify only lets me shuffle which i don’t really use because i want to be able to skip as i please. Can you guys please fix this?
Terrible update
by Dw3cp3 on 2019/06/19 04:33
The update is terrible. Also, I save a few songs from an album and then it plays the whole album. It’s annoying
Update

The new update is geared toward playlists and I don’t have any playlists. I downloaded and like my songs now everything is out of order
ITS MISSING A KEY ELEMENT!

It needs a way to play certain song or I’m going to Apple Music
Updates are breaking what isnt broken..
by joe marshal on 2019/06/19 04:21
(Premium Subscriber) I dont know where im going to switch to but Spotify went from 5 stars to less than one. It slowly started shortly after ipods were phased out, but within the past 2 years the app is becoming more of a headache than worth using. UI used to be fast, straightforward, understandable, and functional. Current UI highlights more and more features I never use and removes or hides the real “meat” of the app. I dont want a cloud streaming service, i want to be able to listen to MY library and have the option to discover everything else. Not be force fed full albums and radio/playlists from artists unrelated to my liking or genre. And if i shuffle a playlist it shuffles artist by artist instead of shuffling all the songs. Downloaded vs liked songs are very confusing and I dont want to lose the songs i like because I have to uncheck download just to partially remove the songs u unliked. If i unlike and undownload the song why is it still there? Instead of highlighting podcasts highlight the new music added to the service which should be customizable. The artists i follow and listen to rarely show up in new music i have to look on apple music then search the name to add it. But the artists i thumb down from radio always seem to show up there. Is it what i want to listen to or what spotify wants me to? Please offer a remedy I beg of you. Spotify should be songs not rocket science. Thank you for listening..

The new update looks allot smoother and easier on the eyes. I like!
Hate the new update
by verryyfrustrated06 on 2019/06/19 04:13
I used to be able to sort my music by song, and I was able to quick scroll. they have now removed that option. They put all your liked songs on a “playlist” and it’s not longer your library. You have to scroll for days if you wanna find a song in your “playlist” and even in alphabetical order it’s a challenge. especially if you have over 500 songs saved
Doesn’t play what I select
by SparrowShan on 2019/06/19 04:13
Why is it that every time I want to listen to a specific album I’m only getting one, maybe two songs from that album and then other music starts playing. Right now for instance. I’m trying to listen to “The Greatest Showman” soundtrack, I’ve clicked into that specific soundtrack only. But after one song plays, the next song is from some other compilation?!? Why the heck would I pay for your subscription when you can’t even get the free version to work correctly!
No!!!
by Caseybam1128 on 2019/06/19 04:10
The most recent update doesn’t allow me to sort by the ‘Song’ category anymore. now it’s so hard to go down my most recent downloaded songs 🙁 which is my preferred way of listening to music. Might end up cancelling over this
Latest UI update
by Bamaounce on 2019/06/19 04:06
The latest update made the “your artists” tab an absolute. Literally nothing was wrong with the old interface. Worst of all the daily mix playlists and new music Friday’s aren’t in that tab anymore. Please revert back to the previous UI
too many ads
by game gam game game game on 2019/06/19 04:00
I was okay when there was one ad every 3-4 songs but theres 2-4 ads every 3-4 songs. Stop trying to convince people to buy premium. Another complaint is, when I'm listening to a smaller playlist on my phone it also plays the recommended songs and it’s very annoying. Other than that, the app is great. There’s a lot of music options!
If it’s not broken..

New Update is horrible
by Game addict 502 on 2019/06/19 03:41
I love this app and for years I use daily but my god this new update. Everything is a mess and it’s disorganized. The older format was amazing and easy to use but this is just confusing and scrambled all over the place. As a premium user, Spotify please go back to the old layout!!

THIS IS BLASPHEMY
by lexdasex on 2019/06/19 03:39
Up until the most recent update, I had been such a Spotify lover and supporter. The new interface is not user-friendly at all. It was much better when songs, playlists, albums, artists, and recently played were all easily accessible on the “Your Library” tab. Also, getting rid of the alphabet slider is seriously so rude, just makes everything way more difficult. I’m ready to start my Apple Music free trial tomorrow (which I had never ever considered before) because of this awful update 😫 PLEASE CHANGE BACK SPOTIFY!
This is amazing

Stupid updates
by BBCstan on 2019/06/19 03:20
Again, another pointless update. I am not going to scroll through hundreds of artists just to get to the z’s or special characters... Give me the ability to scroll through the little alphabet on the right hand side again please. Also, in my “liked songs” playlist I can’t distinguish whether I want just downloaded songs to show up which is annoying if I’m offline and still have to scroll through tons of songs I can’t even play.
Worthless
by Eccohawk on 2019/06/19 03:18
No longer works after update. Guess I’m canceling my subscription.
Dumb update

What happened to the artist list?
by lamotteskiddalyboomboom on 2019/06/19 03:16
Current up date is a mess. It wiped out my artist list which was easy to use. Now there is a disorganized sequence and I have to refollow about 200 artists? Leave well enough alone Spotify This is the worst product update since New Coke.

Garbage UI
by awgingerale on 2019/06/19 03:14
The UI of this app is unusably abstract and ambiguous, almost no functionality as a legitimate music player.

Going downhill
by robfire65 on 2019/06/19 02:57
Spotify used to be one of the best streaming apps, now it’s just constant ads and when you have saved play lists they just switch to random songs
This is the one and only music app
by Aforadultery on 2019/06/19 02:57
This app has replaced any need I ever had for an iPod. Almost any song you could ever want— right at your fingertips— right now. And you can download them all to your device so you don’t need to use data EVER. That’s of course only if you have premium, which is the most well-spent $10/mo I have ever dished out. They even offer a student discount of $5/mo. Crazy talk amirite?
Disappointed
by Jassbowse14 on 2019/06/19 02:40
Kind of sad that I have to get premium to listen to a song I want really listen too but other than that the app is amazing

Save songs for premium
by Juliana corner on 2019/06/19 02:27
I have a premium account and the new update changed the “saved songs” into “liked songs”. I don’t listen to a certain playlist I listen to my saved songs but now since the update songs that Iv had “saved” or “liked” before show that they have not been like either when you swipe left or actually go on the song and click the green heart. But it still shows up in my “liked music”. This makes me incredibly confused because I’m unsure if I actually have the song saved or not. Also there is no bar on the side of the screen that shows the letters in which you can find the song alphabetically which there was earlier when “liked songs” was “saved songs” this makes it difficult to find certain songs, because I can’t just go down to the letter anymore. Also with the shuffle on my “liked songs”, if my filter is on to sort by title and I click “shuffle play” usually the same four songs play. I really thing the shuffling algorithm needs to be fixed because I’m not enjoying the other songs I want to listen on my “liked songs”. Moral of this is that this new update didn’t fix anything about the app but made it harder to use now that “liked songs” is treated as a regular play list and not songs that I have saved.
“Liked Songs”
by WEB_War4 on 2019/06/19 02:27
Please allow the removal of the Liked Songs playlist now pinned to the top of the playlists section.
Apple Music is better

New Update
by Lillian1139 on 2019/06/19 02:18
The app was perfectly fine before the recent update. All you’ve done is make it less user friendly. It’s harder to find songs, your recommended artists aren’t even close to what I listen to, and I really dislike that there’s no longer a recently played list anymore.
Most Recent Update
by ijordanib on 2019/06/19 02:18
The latest update makes it even more difficult to browse through your library & find liked songs by artists you've listened to. I found previous versions of this app easier to navigate due to the layout & design.
Too many changes
by Tony guipilin on 2019/06/19 02:12
First they changed the queue location and the number of taps to get to it. Now with the new update they got rid of recently played!! Why would they get rid of something so useful for no reason?? Makes no sense and makes the app way worse.
Fix your app
by ajajajkj on 2019/06/19 02:11
I have a family share premium plan. It keeps bugging. I click a playlist and it won’t keep on the playlist even when it hasn’t ended. When I try going back a song no matter where I’m at in a playlist it always goes back to the same song. Your new update ruined my Spotify and we aren’t about to pay for your screw ups.
Unhappy
by nikktin on 2019/06/19 02:01
It keeps glitching. Randomly stops working and then plays songs from some strange playlist. Ready to get rid of subscription!

Bad update
by jd.simp on 2019/06/19 01:32
I was an avid fan fan of Spotify, but the new update changed way too much and I find it extremely frustrating to use. Definitely ending premium and switching to Apple Music by the end of this month.

It gets really annoying when you want to listen to the music that YOU put on your playlist NOT what they give you and it’s so annoying when you want to listen to the music that you put in and not the music they put in🙄
It was better before
by leah_stars on 2019/06/19 01:24
They just recently did a new update. I believe it’s been this way for Spotify users without premium, but it was different for premium users. The “recently played” used to be in the library section, but now it’s on the home screen. And I can’t edit recently played anymore??? At least as far as I can tell. I think they should change it back to how it was.

This app should not be allowed to control my devices volume when on Spotify Connect and running in the background, that’s my job as a user to do so.
The changes don’t make the Spotify better.
by mercuryfan on 2019/06/19 01:02

Horrid
by Fat Clamenza on 2019/06/19 00:52
I’m a paying user and this new version is straight crap. Everything I downloaded is available via “Albums”, but not in “Artists”. Atrocious. My fav thing to do was go to an artist, click on them, and just hit shuffle to listen to various random songs on all of their albums. Yeah, not anymore. Fix this and go back to how it was.
Great but....
by \(^o^)/( ̄ー ̄) on 2019/06/19 00:52
I love this app!!! But... it seems like when I shuffle my 2600+ songs it likes to play the same 30 songs!!! Also this app definitely needs and option to separate music by genre and possibly mood as well 🤠

Worst User Interface of All time
by 1s4ac on 2019/06/19 00:15
How does a company with so much money have such poor design ? Who are you hiring to do your u.i??? I hate the new update, I like the emphasis on podcast but when it comes to playing my music I have to hard dig and look for all the songs I want one at a time. Someone needs a new design head please.
Add the letters back on the side for search
by bryonnajay on 2019/06/19 00:13
With this new update, they removed the letters that can help you quickly search on the side bar of the liked songs playlist. This is very inconvenient!
Worst Update!
by rbelcher669 on 2019/06/19 00:09
Now requires you to “follow” each artist to add them to library. All the music I had in my library is just gone and now it’s in “recommended”. Duh it’s recommended I had already added it to my library before this update, but now I have to follow each individual artist to get the songs I already “liked” back into my library. Terrible update.
Unnecessary changes to the app
by Flyingtoast101 on 2019/06/19 00:07
It’s terrible now that the alphabetical scroll is gone. It’s so unorganized now and inconvenient.
Don’t Recommend At All
by A gamer XD on 2019/06/19 00:00
Yes, I use this but the new update makes me want to kill myself. CAN I JUST LISTEN TO MY FAVORITE SONGS WITHOUT HAVING TO LISTEN TO SOME ARTISTS I DON’T EVEN LIKE? At this point, I can’t listen to music like I want. My songs get skipped, songs I don’t even like or know come on, and I can’t play a 1 minute song without sitting through hours of people I don’t care about. I don’t recommend unless you want to pay, or sit though 5 ads at once and music that you don’t want to listen to. Or bad music on some ads that say bUy sPoTiFy pRenIuM nOw FoR sOnGs LiKe ThIs. I. Give. Up. On. This. App. Get YouTube or something like that. Way less ads and no need to pay to listen to music ON WIFI. I wish I could give zero stars.
Newest Update
by Rosewilla on 2019/06/18 23:55
The new update is absolutely horrible. The way that the layout has changed has completely thrown off and disrupted the entire purpose of the app. It has made it extremely inconvenient, disorganized, and downright stupid and completely changes what you can access in your music, albums, artists, playlists, etc. Every single one of my friends and family who use this app absolutely love it, until now. Everyone has been incredibly dissatisfied and even more so angry and frustrated. All across the board, social media platforms included EVERYONE AGREES ITS AWFUL. I have been a loyal defender of Spotify against apple music and other platforms, yet with something like this, I find it very hard to defend. Please change it back asap.
update 6/18
by queenofcups555 on 2019/06/18 23:54
really retarded update. can’t even find artists by songs you have saved from them, only if you follow them. also you have to scroll al the way down to find them since they got ride of the alphabet sidebar.

Amazing App!
by Raveiin (SM) on 2018/09/26 02:03
All I can say is this app is positively amazing. It is made very nicely, and although it does have an occasional advertisement, that does not possibly amount to the overall amazing quality. Definitely worth getting the premium membership feature (I don’t own it, but have used it before with a close friend of mine.) This app is a must-have if you have a busy lifestyle and love listening to music! One of my favorite features is the playlist option. You can make customized playlists to your music preference. It’s positively amazing! You can also add certain artists you like, and it customizes your daily mixes. Another great feature is the daily mixes! The app gives you daily playlists based on your favorite songs and artists, and makes a personal playlist based on the aforementioned favorite songs and artists. Altogether, it is a spectacular app that has MANY amazing features, and I’m not surprised it is so popular and successful. I hope everyone can notice the amazing quality and effort that was put into the making of this AMAZING app!
Please read this.
by PaleWillows on 2019/06/07 09:27
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.
No thanks not worth it

I think the idea of the app was spot on. I think the execution was terrible. The app is up to date and on top of these songs but it is a pain to work with. An app should always be user friendly and easy to understand but this isn’t it. I don’t like too much music and don’t know that many singers so when it made me choose three that’s a big no, it messed up my recommendations and I’m stuck with sicko mode as a recommendation because I was joking around. The app doesn’t allow you to play just one song, you have to make a playlist and if it’s not big enough it plays “recommended” music which is extremely irritating. Skipping songs only 6 times per hour is ridiculous and only there to make you pay money. Also the fact that you can’t restart your playlist after you’re done and it starts playing other music is uncalled for. I tried everything from looking it up and restarting my phone. Nothing worked. Ik there are hard core fans who know all the ins and outs of this app but that’s not the point, anyone (within reason) should be able to use and app, if they can’t then there is no point to download this app. Lastly I forgot to mention but not being able to add whole albums is also irritating, adding song by song is meticulous.
Now is unnecessarily complex
by Corndog3135 on 2019/03/02 08:53
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.
Fine app, but mean to non-premium people.
by jedihobbit on 2018/08/29 21:56
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!
Why!?!?!?
by cDNAhsjs on 2018/12/24 16:24
I don’t understand why I can do unlimited skips on my Xbox for free on my playlist and I can also switch to whatever song I want but then I try to listen to some music on my phone I have to listen to the song it is playing the whole way through before I can listen to the next one. And then you try to make me pay ten dollars a month for it when I can just go on my school chrome book and I can change the songs. And I’m not going to bring that thing up every night to listen to music. Anyways, an add came up while I was switching to the next song and it says that if you watch this add, which it was around thirty-five seconds, you get the next half hour free of adds. So I watch it and when that was done another add came up just to tell me that there was thirty minutes of no adds, it was about fifteen seconds long, it talked for literally four seconds and then the add just sat there for another eleven seconds showing me a picture of a product that I don’t even have enough money for. Alright, if you listened this far, I just want to be able to Change and skip the songs on my playlist without having to pay ten dollars a month for premium, But this is just another comment from an upset user so I will probably just get completely ignored.
Just fix it already!!!!!
by jamiejam118 on 2018/07/26 20:22
Too many adds, and why are the skips limited? Seriously? Why do I have to pay extra to not play something? Also, why can’t i skip back? Sometimes people make mistakes and accidentally press forward instead of pause or whatever and I actually do like that song. Also, why can’t I play songs that aren’t on my playlist or just pick one song to play, I just want to listen to toxic by Britney Spears, and I don’t want to have to wait through an hour of my chemical romance! Shuffle doesn’t really shuffle that well either, i was listening to my playlist and it played like, an entire musical in order! I pressed shuffle for a reason! I used to use the kindle version and even that was better, and do you guys know how terrible the kindle version was? Saying that was better than throw new iPhone updated version is saying a lot! JUST CHANGE IT BACK! Geez! I’ve read other reviews dating back to April saying about the same thing as I have, and you still haven’t changed anything! Just listen to the people already! As Dan and Phil said “ were here to give the people what they want” so why don’t you guys actually pay attention and actually do something to better our experience!
Truthfully the truth🤔
by hounest anna (on ah) on 2019/04/17 03:18
I think it’s ok. I wouldn’t recommend it though. What the app tells you your getting is that you have the music you want on easy command with minimal adds. Sounds nice huh? Well if this is there idea of music on command and “minimal” adds, I think they need to update their description to the truth. What your getting is a play list made of things with the same genre as you like, things you add, and oh, a billion different songs that have nothing to do with what you like! And the whole “just press the skip button”, you only get 6 per hour. You want to listen to uninterrupted music, well look further because with a 30 second to 1 minute long add every 2 songs you’ll regret it! Now all this can be solved by purchasing the premium option. Or can it? On my friends phone she purchase the premium option and a day later we got an add about grocery outlet bargen market. Now there are some nice things about it. Such as being able to have your phone off and still be able to listen, I love that. And being able to manage your account easily. But that’s it. I got a ratio of 2 goods per 5 bads. Thanks for listening to the whole review. It’s still better than you tube music 🎵😊
iPhone XR Update is horrible
by John1681 on 2019/03/15 00:17
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.
It’s a great app, but the update is making me angry!
by Puyopie :3 on 2019/04/21 03:31
The idea of the app is great, but... I have 3 complaints. The first would be that it’s excruciatingly irritating when I just want to listen to a few specific songs on a little playlist, and then it automatically adds some songs I don’t want to listen to. I mean, seriously?! I had no freaking complaints at all about the app before this. I just want to be able to listen to exactly what I want, exactly when I want to. I understand that maybe some people don’t find this very annoying, but, I do. So, if you made it to where you could turn off the automatically adding songs in settings, then, that would be wonderful. My second complaint is that only having shuffle play vexes me. I just want to listen to whatever I want and not be bothered by anything else (besides ads, I will tolerate those and I know that you need them in order to make money). Anything else as in songs I don’t want to hear. My third and final complaint is that I miss being able to play 1 song over and over again. That’s all I’ve got. And, my rating might seem a little harsh for something so trivial, but, that’s just how annoyed I am about this. So, if you could just please fix all of this in your next update, that would be much appreciated!
ideas
by Ynattirb rekceb on 2018/04/22 15:40
I love this app so much. i use it everyday almost constantly. it always works for me and has all the music i want. when i’m using it though i always think of two things i wish it had. 1) be able to combine playlists together so i don’t have to switch over to a different one while i’m driving. there’s the “add to” option for songs but if you could hold down the playlist and it said “add to” and then you could select playlist you want to add the other to that would actually be the best feature ever. 2) i wish you could change the order of songs singularly in a playlist. with premium i know you can choose whichever song you want to hear next but when i’m sleeping or driving i don’t want to have to manually change it or have it in shuffle. there’s been times i wish i could drag the songs around because i want songs to be heard in a certain order so being able to drag it around while editing the playlist would be awesome!

by Slurptalon3000 on 2018/07/10 05:58
I used to love it so much before the update. When you close out the app and come back later, the playlist you were on, you aren't on it anymore, it takes you to your recently played. And that new 30 minutes of ad free music ad is really annoying. I dislike how it says- "Yes really..yadayadayada" that's bugging me. And that ad plays right after the very first song I listen to is over. EDIT: There are WAY too many ads dude. Like seriously. Even when you click on that "No, I want to keep the ads" ITS STILL PLAYS A HECKIN AD. And I feel like you've been deleting A LOT of songs that I enjoy. I'm starting to go to SoundCloud and Musi because you've been deleting my songs. EDIT 2: PLEASE turn down the volume on your ‘get 30 mins ad free’ ads. Like, I have my volume all the way up sometimes and the ad is louder than any of my songs and it hurts my ears. EDIT 3: The only time I can get 30 mins ad free is when I first open the app. I know it used to pop up with that dude saying get your 30 minutes ad free by watching a short ad. And it waits for about 10 seconds for you to click ‘watch video’ but now the woman says it, doesn’t wait, plays 3-4 ads in a row and doesn’t give 30mins. Fix this please!
Followed Artists & Lagging
by Mayaily123 on 2019/04/05 22:16
(Still hasn’t changed) All the artists that I am following immediately disappear, as soon as I go on one of their profiles it says that I’m not following them and I’m not sure if that’s a glitch or if I’ve reached the maximum amount… But it needs to change. This has been going on for over a year. I’ve been a premium member for five years and have never had this problem. Also with the newest update, I’ve noticed when I play songs it lags when I try to shuffle to another song or go to another artists profile. Or when I’m adding a song to a playlist, there will be a long pause instead of adding it right away. But when I first start the app after I’ve had it closed out, it’s fast. Then as I do more things on it or add to playlists, it gets slower. If I press to add a song to a playlist, it’ll have a long pause before it loads my playlists. If I slide the time of the song and fast forward a bit, it pauses in between. It’s just annoying. I have an iPhone XS Max so... I’d assume it would be faster but. I absolutely HATE this update. It’s so slow and the screen freezes when I’m pausing songs or skipping ahead
Uh, put the old edit feature back please
by WhiteHawk23 on 2019/03/19 13:52
Absolutely awesome app, been using it for years and I am a music lover so I will use nothing else. However this latest update that changed the edit feature to put you back at the top of your playlist so you have to scroll down to the song you want to delete (for me that’s 250 deep) and then to tap the minus button and have the song instantly disappear- please don’t do that. My eyes can sometimes play tricks on me and I can select the wrong song to delete. With this new feature it’s all too easy to press the wrong song and WHOOP it’s gone and you have to remember what it was and go and find it again. While I’m writing a review, though, can y’all put an option to turn on or off the music video clips that MOVE THE PAUSE AND PLAY BUTTON because when I’m driving I know where that normal button is without looking but y’all move it for random songs. It’s very distracting too to have those video clips on while doing homework but I enjoy having the app open and my phone not locked so I can pick through music quickly without having to navigate through my phone every time.
Inconvenient
by Thatrandomcheeseburger on 2019/04/08 16:25
Great music player and I would definitely recommend it, if they didn’t make so difficult to play a single song. If you want to play just one song, chances are, it will play a totally different song that you didn’t want to hear. It has a feature called “extra songs” that add recommended songs to you, which wouldn’t be a problem if they didn’t play those songs BEFORE the song you wanted to listen to in the first place. They also add extra songs to your playlists. There is no work around this issue. You can stop all the extra songs one at a time from playing, but it takes forever and if it’s a song from one of your other playlists it’ll delete the song from that playlist as well. You can skip the song, but you only have six skips a day unless you get the premium version, which wouldn’t be a problem except for the fact that you can’t get the premium on the app. Which eliminates the entire point of this app...convenience. This problem would be SO easy to fix, but they deliberately try to make the app inconvenient so you’ll buy the premium version that you can’t get on the app! If you’re looking for a good music player, use ITUNES.
I liked the older version
by Dansam44 on 2018/07/31 14:21
I used to love this app but now it’s gotten so frustrating to use. The new update took away a lot of features that made this app nice to use. I almost never listened to playlists or albums, I always shuffle played all the songs I had. Without the “My Songs” section, I feel like I’m listening to the same stuff all the time and it’s annoying to have to constantly go on my phone and switch between albums and playlists. I liked when every song I saved was in one place. And it’s even more frustrating that you can’t albums to playlists anymore. I have to wait until the song actually plays to add it to an already existing playlist. If I want to add an entire album to a playlist I can’t anymore. And now I can’t even play albums because whenever I click on them none of the songs or a play button appears. Idk what’s going on with this app but you guys need to change it back. The new update is terrible and many people are complaining about it so you should listen to your users. I loved this app cause with the amount of music I like, I’d be broke using Apple Music. Please make the app better like it was before cause I do love using it.
Look
by Takfhsjb on 2019/03/27 00:46
It’s hard to find songs I had recalled and recommend songs are sort of bad. Now, I’m not sure if the computer’s choice of song as a recommendation are blatantly narrow, due to typical music quality or beat, but it get the atmosphere, tone, and rhythm of recommended song don’t satisfy. I’m selfish, sure, but SoundCloud does that for me; flowing with my vibe. I have some suggestions, and they go as listed: 1. I know Shazam already exists, but with this company’s massive art library, I think it’ll probably work better, but adding something that can detect songs sung or play would definitely help. 2. Able to listen to a 15 second snippet of a song, why not hear and judge the song if someone would like it. It’s hell when you have to take a risk of opening a song, only to get an ad and then later get another. If it’s too much work going through all music, you could notify a small survey asking listeners which section a song they enjoy the most. 3. Better recommended song instead of playlists of the same artist, cuz this is also another reason why ghost artist are masked by repetitive artist recommendations -w-
Timing out?
by Fallenzero1 on 2018/05/03 23:02
This app was great up until a few updates ago. I’ve held off on posting because I was hoping that te next update or the next would fix the problem I’m having. Almost every time I pause my music for more than a couple minutes, it’s like the app refreshes itself. I can hit the play/pause button all day and it won’t do anything. I have to physically go into the app and restart the music. It’s becoming very frustrating to have to go into the app almost every time I pause my music. Update: the timing out problem has been worse and worse!!! More often than not, when I pause, I have to go back into the app to let it reload. Something else it’s started doing within the last few updates, is sometimes, after it times out a couple times, it will show the time on a song counting up, but the song will not be playing. When I pause it, it jumps back to 0:03, and jumps forward to wherever it was when I hit play again, still with no sound. The only way to fix that is by completely closing out of the app and reopening it. At this point, the only reason I’m still paying $9.99 a month for this is because I don’t have reliable WiFi when I’m not home, and I like to listen while I’m out and about.
Decent UI and gets the job done
by UserChecksOut on 2019/04/27 21:41
There are certainly some problems with this new UI. One being, I have to open the flick up menu for the song I’m playing to get to the queue list. Also, the voice thing to search for a song is pointless. And more than likely might not understand what you’re trying to say. I one tried to ask it to play G.O.A.T. By Polyphia And it played a song by Sia. Also, you just look like an idiot if you’re talking to your phone out in public. If I ask my phone to play Sexy back by Justin Timberlake I’m more than likely going to get weird looks. The app is for the most part fluid and a good experience. I can easily make playlists and it’s much easier to edit, remove and move around songs within the playlists now. The thing I hate the most isn’t even about the app. It’s the people complaining about the free version. But that’s just my opinion. If you don’t like it go try out Trebel. Only problem is you’ll get far less songs and still have ads, and some songs can be downloaded but still need WiFi to listen to them.
Uh it’s okay.👌
by RyanjcGamez on 2019/06/17 15:39
It’s good. It’s better than Pandora (which I deleted my account on 😏). It’s amazing how you can connect to more apps than just Facebook. You can connect to Discord, uh, and other apps that I don’t know. 🙃 But there is one problem. On computer, TV, and other devices you can turn off shuffle and/or turn on replay, but when it’s on the normal mobile version, you can’t? You can only do it on the mobile version if you have premium I think. There’s even the shuffle and replay buttons when you connect your phone to your TV, so I know you guys can do it. It’s just stupid how you can’t turn on/off shuffle and replay on mobile WITHOUT PREMIUM. You can do it on mobile with premium, but you can also do it for free on all the other devices. So what’s the point? I guess it doesn’t really matter at this point since my dad is thinking of getting the family premium plan. But still, you guys should still do it, because that’s just crappy. Edit a few minutes after submitting this review: Oh, you also can’t skip forward or rewind the song without being connected to a TV or having premium. 🙃
Podcast issues
by Lvira on 2019/05/10 14:36
I use to love the app for the podcasts. I don’t know if the issues since the first of the year are built in to push premier not. I am a big Stuff You Missed in History Class fan. I have been catching up on it and used to be I could sort it by un head and older podcasts and got through it in order that way. Then it started playing the previous podcast I just heard, so driving I had to either listen or cut app off. Driving and operating an app is dangerous so I disconnect via steering wheel. Then it stopped showing podcasts as being played. Now it does not sort and have to scroll through all podcasts to find last one. Well when that is done it goes back to the previous listened podcast. So long story short I cannot listen in car or at work. I will find another way of listening to all different podcasts. There are some nice ones out there. I would pay for premium if the downgrades are fixed but no notice was given. I gave a 3 star rating as there is nothing wrong with the music portion. I can hear my faves including foreign groups like Lordi. If fixed will update.
Noice music needs some updates doe
by ++Wolfe21++ on 2019/03/17 02:39
Ok, so first of all, Amazing app with outstanding potential but there are some drawbacks. first you get adds every time you start a play list or you’re on the middle of one, So please fix this problem(Tbh idk if it’s just me) Second, The shuffle is horrible when you want songs you think of in your head that are in your playlist (Supprisingly) they come out to be the next song but then there are the songs that are horrible in your playlist but you think of ‘em so they turn out to be the next song...(I truly don’t know if this is just me) plus I get songs that I haven’t heard in weeks and suddenly break down the door and release their deep bass on me while my headphones are in at full volume (rip ears) Third, Make it easier to find and at the very least - like the skip option - Allow us to have a limited amount of selections on the songs you want to start off with like 5 a day or something like that, overall Amazing app.
Changes (not for the better)
by limpfuckedmebizkit on 2019/04/16 15:45
I loved this app, easily worth paying ten bucks a month for. However, this new update they’ve implemented has completely butchered some of the little things that made the app so brilliant. Daily Mixes are no longer endless, something that was so useful for someone who spends so much time in the car in one given day. There’s also no longer an intuitive way to see what you were recently playing, as hitting “Your Library” brings you straight to your playlists now, instead of being tucked away in a convenient tab in YL. And maybe I’m just crazy, but playing music seems so much... slower? It’s almost as if the app needs time to process the song after I hit play, which seems to make sense when you think about it, except for the fact that it was most certainly not like this in the previous iteration of the app. The only reason I’m not giving this a lower score is because it’s still got all the same music from before, all my playlists are the same, so I can’t fault them for that. But if these changes aren’t fixed in due time then I’m definitely jumping ship and going to another service.
Recent issues
by Señor Siete on 2019/03/25 02:30
I hate the new update, nothing good has come from it.... I hate that now in your recently played, if you tap a recently played artist, it takes you to their page and not your songs you have saved. It’s super inconvenient and stupid. Also I don’t like that you’ve never been able to see who follows your playlists, or when someone follows you. Also It would be great if the app actually informed you on recent activity with all the artists you follow, and not just random ones on unprecedented occasions. It would be super awesome too if when you shuffle or just out on one of your longer playlists, it actually plays through All THE SONGS, not just like a fraction of them expecting you to be content by then. Just because a playlist may be over 10 hours doesn’t mean I don’t want to hear all of them, it means I made a ten hour playlist with songs I WANT TO HEAR 💀 Anyway, that’s been my recent beef with the app I think is superior anyway
Please help
by Uni_love11505 on 2018/06/28 09:44
Please help me. I downloaded the app but for some reason I can’t make an account. I got the button to do so and nothing happened. I tried to hit the button to log in to see if that one worked but it didn’t. If someone can help me, please do. Thank-you! Edit: I finally got it to work ( lol ) and I love it!! I can listen to my music without needing a subscription like some other music apps I have downloaded. The ads are a little annoying but at least you CAN get rid of them :). The fact you can download any song you want is great! I can listen to my k-pop and then a 2018 hit right after and that’s amazing! The other folder things ( I don’t know what to call them ( sorry ) ) are good because you can listen to new music you haven’t heard before. Sure you listen to a lot of music you don’t like but you find songs you do like quite a bit :). All in all, I love the app even with its few cons. 🙃
Updates seem like they are going backwards.
by David Mr.D on 2019/03/22 05:34
Overall I like the app. Under artists theres a part on the right side to find artists easier by letter. I like this feature except for the fact that they keep taking this feature away and putting it back in every other update. PLEASE just give us an option to decide if we want it or not. Also I hate the newest update! Under recently played you used to be able to go straight to the music you have listened to recently. For instance if you were listening to artist abc under your artists page, then all the music you saved used to show up under recently play. Now instead it goes to the artist page where you can download more of their music. This also requires you to load it which kinda takes away the usefullness of downloading the music so you dont have to load it. PLEASE FIX. This is so stupid im pretty sure if we wanted to go to the artist page we could figure it out. Give us the ability to customize these changes in the app how we like, that would be amazing. Since these new changes have went through ive been thinking about using some other music app.
I love it but...
by andygirl82 on 2018/12/14 03:00
I love the app!! It’s so amazing! It lets me choose songs and shuffle them. It’s got some amazing song options, and I love the idea of having folders of music. I also love how every song is FREE!! I also love the amount of skips I get for the not premium version. I do have two problems though. I swear every two songs there are like 8 ads. Maybe bring it down. I can’t afford premium, and many others can’t, so this is a problem for them too. Maybe play 3 songs then 1 ad. That would be better. The only reason I use Pandora is because they have barely any ads. Another thing, after I’ve finished listening to every song on the playlist, you just play songs that have nothing to do with what I was listening to. Say I have a playlist with a whole bunch Latino songs. Maybe 150. I’ve listened to all of them in shuffle, and then you start playing like, Linken Park or Fall Out Boy. It literally has NOTHING to do with what I was listening to. Maybe fix that. Everything else is fine. Thanks! -Alexa Anderson
Great App!
by Penguindayday on 2018/04/03 21:15
I immediately feel in love into this app when I got it! The pros of this app are that the large variety of songs and artist, which is spectacular! I also enjoy listening the fact that you can save as many songs as you'd like. The fact that you are allowed to have the free trial for premium is magnificent, but I have not tried it yet. I also like the fact that you can watch an ad to get rid of advertisements for a half an hour, so I can listen to music without interruptions. However, there are quite a few cons. First, you can't listen to a thirty second preview of new songs, which saved lots of time. Then, there's also the fact that unsaved songs of yours can randomly start playing, which is great for discovering some new songs and artist, but gets irritating when I want to listen to my songs. Other than that, this app is great for playing any song while out of the app, and I'm sure I will still be a user in the future! Keep improving the app to make it better and better!
One more suggestion...
by Phillip Colligan on 2018/11/26 04:35
I am really loving the new updates… It would be nice to be able to click on the three dots on a song that's playing from your playlist and have the option to delete directly while playing that song from the playlist instead of having to go edit the playlist, find the song and then delete it. The app crashes and also makes me restart my playlist. I wish the playlist would always hold its play point (songs already played during playlist session vs songs left to play) and resume from the streaming service. I wish I could save me play point across each session. Let’s say playlist 1 has 10 songs and playlist 2 has 20 songs. If in pause playlist 1, I want to resume playlist 2 from whatever song it was playing before instead of starting allllll over. When I leave from playing playlist 1 on my Bose at my house, I want to resume in my truck from that same play point or have the option to have playlist 2 play instead.
Library Interface changed, can't find things
by Nostronimo on 2018/05/27 20:00
As a free user I loved it before the recent (may 17th) update and would have given it 5 stars because everything was readily organized where I could easily find albums or music I liked and was similar to the computer app or how the iTunes library looked. more specifically I liked I could somewhat choose what I wanted to listen to at just that current moment with what I've placed in those playlists, with the shuffle and limited skips of course with the occasional random addition of music. Now however I can't find any of that and just have a favorites section that plays everything, or I have to find the artist stuff itself on the mobile app and be forced to listen to all of that, even things I don't like which I can't thumbs down (as far as I can tell) and never have to listen to it again. I can't find anything now, and if I wanted things like this I'd just use the pandora interface where I have some control with the free features on pick choosing what I want and don't want in the list.
It used to be great
by Daffin Chuck on 2017/11/01 23:37
I've used this app for years and up until a few weeks ago, I loved it, but now it's just frustrating. Whenever I go to listen to one of my playlists, I hear a couple of my songs that I actually put on the playlist and then all that plays are a bunch of random suggested tracks that are often not even related to the kind of music that was originally on the playlist. I can see how (because I don't have premium) playing a few suggested tracks every once in a while might be acceptable but I rarely hear the songs that I have saved or that I even want to listen to anymore. Another thing is that the app now often glitches out. Sometimes it won't load any of the music even when I know that the connection is good. No matter how many times I hit the shuffle button, nothing will play. It will also randomly skip songs without me hitting the skip button or even touching my phone. This used to be such a good music app but now there are so many glitches that it's just not very enjoyable to use anymore.
Sweet and not so cool

Great for iPad and computer but horrible for iPhone. Are you kidding me?? So I can't play whatever I want on an app on my phone without paying premium?? It'd be tight if I can play whatever I want on my phone. Least let me play my playlists without discovering "new" songs that I don't give a crap about. If you force me to shuffle my music and play songs I don't want at least don't make the app free. It's a huge turn off to get a free app only to not really enjoy the app unless you pay premium which is a lot for a mobile app when I can with the same app play whatever I like on my iPad and computer so why can't it be the same for mobile. I recommend it for computer and iPad but for mobile I'd pass unless there is a way for me to play my music even if it's just shuffling without playing music I don't want. Why do this to us who don't want to pay for premium for mobile. I don't really care for music that's "discovering". I just want the music in my library. I don't even mind the ads. I'll stick to pandora for discovering new music.
Changes
by Love156 on 2019/01/21 23:27
When the app was updated they got rid of some the best thing. I would love to see them come back. How many songs are in the playlist, how many followers they have and the search system. I would love to see new changes like putting your playlist in a certain order. With ocd this is very bothersome. I want to put playlist in an order that I use them and move them all around To an order I like not of how they were made. I can’t keep organized. I would also like to see ways to access the radios. When I get tired of my songs and want to find new ones I want to listen to the playlist radio. I have no idea how to get to them. I also think for organizational purposes I would love to see a select button where you can select multiple songs to add them, take away or move to a different playlist. The old features I would love to see come back. I love the app and I’m on it all the time but I would love to see changes to make the experience over all more appealing.
iPad app is better
by DatBoi4423 on 2019/01/07 01:15
When I switched from my iPad to my phone for this app(cuz it’s more portable and has data) there were a lot of things that just weren’t there. I couldn’t skip back and I had a limited amount of skips. I couldn’t choose where/what song on my playlist to start on, and couldn’t turn off shuffle. Also, I’ve realized that I’m getting an add or 2 after each song after listening to this playlist for a few days.(a few hrs a day) Its just annoying to have that many adds cuz it really messes up the flow. Plz make it like how it was a few years back with the adds, like 2 adds for every 5 songs, but otherwise the app is pretty good. But the only other thing is that song a that I’ve never added to my playlist are popping up out of nowhere, and it’s kinda annoying cuz when you run out of skips, it’s almost guaranteed that if you don’t select the do not play button, that it W I L L play when you run out of skips. But otherwise, great app but 5* for iPad and more like 3* for iPhone cuz the adds and skips, but ya great app.
All songs?
by SpicyPeaches on 2018/12/27 21:23
It’s an awesome app to listen to music, but you can’t see all the songs by an artist. Only the most popular and latest release. That makes it almost impossible to find some songs. You should be able to search songs from an artist. Also, it reset my entire app! I went on to play some music and then it made me log in. Apparently, it didn’t save my account. Now I have none of my saved songs or any playlists. I also wish there was diversity all the recommended songs are immediately rap and pop music. I myself am NOT a fan of rap or pop. I know there a lot of other types of music and people who feel how I feel about those genres, there should be a mix. Like instead of always making it Ariana Grande, XXX, Drake, e.t.c (I swear I learned pop and rap music from your recommendations.)there could be some Vance Joy, Alt-J (Δ), The Lumineers. That would be nice. Also having a page to access queue easier would be great. Lastly, there should be a page where lesser known artists could get known.
Blatant lies
by Matthew Simmons on 2019/05/20 04:45
Don’t list your features as shuffle play when you’ve established a set playlist. I tested your forces “shuffle play” mode and when I switched between stations and then switched back it was the same song and not only that but it was the same place in the song. Shuffle is a lie if you keep playing the same song in the same position every time it’s a set playlist not a shuffle play. If you really want people to spend money on your app it had to work for free in order to entice people to spend money on it, a broken app doesn’t entice paid followers. Please don’t lie to me and then try to sell me a premium service that is the same service minus you dicking me and all other potential customers over. Shuffle means something as does every other word in the English language. I would not describe myself as a paid subscriber if I had not “paid” because in English words have set meanings that society only sustainably exists because we all agree on the definitions. If I tell you I’m going to touch you in a shuffled position, and every time I punch you in the face, it’s not really shuffled is it....don’t lie to me and then try to charge me money.
Could use some work, otherwise good

As a music streaming app, it works great. I can deal with ads and limited skips, or pay for premium. It isn't perfect and it has its issues but I want to specifically address this one. The way the playlist radio functions is absolute garbage unless you pay for premium. If you like a song, you can never undo that action and liked songs will repeatedly show up when you use the radio, thus forcing you to listen to it or waste one of your already limited skips. I have songs I liked months ago still showing up, regardless of whether they're in my playlist or not. Songs that I don't want to hear constantly. This makes it difficult to discover new music without wasting my time. I understand that as a free user I shouldn't be able to skip everything, but making me deal with this is insult to injury. The least you could do is take these songs out of the queue, or allow us to "unlike" them.
Nice App
by Notorious M.I.T. on 2018/10/09 02:37
Just some things I kinda want, instead of lyrics and tidbits on the song can there just be lyrics so I can sing along without wondering what the exact lyrics are 😅 if possible jump into a song a friend is currently listening to at the same spot and time they are listing to 😅 live group/couple listening 😆 probably too much to ask. Just want more social/intimate. Over all great clean app, no problems like running into covers you don’t want to listen to or misleading titles of tracks, you get the exact song you want every time, harder to find certain underground tracks but there’s a good amount that you’d be surprised is on this app, the app is super organized and clean you never feel lost, I love this app, for the longest time I wasn’t sure about premium but once I was in it’s so nice hard to turn back, bit of a luxury but I don’t mind it, I’ll stay here till I get pointed to something better 😜
Going to lose a loyal customer
by Ladybug483 on 2018/05/27 18:43
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).
I love this app but...
by BM022020 on 2018/12/15 19:18
This app is amazing, I can listen to all my favorite songs when I want and it’s great for taking long trips that I have to drive which I do very often. I also love using it while doing homework. There are only two downsides to this app. Lately when it offers the 30mins of unlimited listening without adds and I click to watch the add it just goes right back to my music and doesn’t let me listen without adds. The other thing is that I don’t have the money to pay for the monthly Prime. I’m only 16 I don’t have a job or a bank account that I can pay for the unlimited music. Yes, I understand that they have to have some way to pay for the app to still be up I just wish there was another way for me to get the unlimited music without adds and be able to listen offline. But other than those two things I love this app and would recommend it to anyone.
its okay.
by maddy durot on 2019/05/28 01:29
1st problem, the limited skips. on iphone you have 6 or 7 skips per hour. thats bull. so if you just dont like a song on ur playlist that day, you have to use a skip. 2nd problem. the recomending songs. instead of playing the playlist over again it gives u recomended songs. i understand the idea of that, but idk its just not executed well. 3rd problem, playing a playlist over again is too much work. ok so if a playlist just ended and u wanted to listen to it again, you cant click “ shuffle play” again, you have to play another playlist, then click shuffle play on that playlist, then go back to the playlist you want to play again THEN click shuffle play. 4rth problem. THE AMOUNT OF ADS. OMG THERE ARE TOO MANY. there are ads dor every 8 songs i think, but theres a skip ad button and even if u click the button that says “SKIP” WICH YOU WOULD EXPECT TO SKIL THE AD, IT DOESNT AND JUST PLAYS THE AD. anyways, overall the app is good, but if u have the opportunity to have apple music instead, go with apple music.
Not updating g till some features are brought back
by RexFoley on 2019/05/18 05:47
I get that apple is being stupid and petty with y’all, but I have the version right before the alphabetical scroll bar was removed. My brother has the newer versions, and I noticed on his the UI has gone to hell. My main gripe is with the removal of the scroll bar, and from what other reviews I see here, the saved artists pages has gone backwards in quality. I know that apple’s push for Apple Music puts y’all in a difficult situation, but if they have a scroll bar why can’t you. I’ve been trying to police myself from updating it and I’ve had to cancel a few close call updates to prevent the features I like from disappearing. Please add them back instead of every update being “big fixes”. If whatever little glitches are “bugs”, then the removal and downgrade in UI is a roach-wasp hybrid that needs to be squashed. Please. I’m tired of seeing the red symbol on my App Store app and having to individually update every app because I can’t press the “update all” button
Love the app but hate the new update
by Goldless1 on 2018/08/03 10:43
I was listening to music on my PS4 when I realized that you guys deleted like 200+ of my music. Like why would you do that or have an update that does that. An its only for the phone. All my music is on the PS4 but when I go past or try to past the 800 song I can’t get to it ( on the phone I mean) . Plus, I have the app on automatic updates so I couldn’t choose weather I wanted to update it or not. I would love if you just put it back like the way it was. I use this app a lot between my Iphone and my PS4. I feel like it was much more convenient the way it was before. I have to admit the fact that I couldn’t see the rest of my song kinda forced me into writing this review I literally never do these but I felt like I had to in this case since I use this app sooo much. And the whole app this way is something I feel like I won’t be able to get used to with the way that it is set up now . Thank You for Coming to my TED TALK
Edit: Great Service, bad update to Recently Played
by Tplhvbg on 2019/06/14 23:05
The newest update changed the path taken from the “Recently Played” icons, which used to send you to your saved collection of that artist’s work. Now clicking on a recently played artist takes you to that artist’s page, rather than your saved collection of that artist’s work. I understand that this can help users discover more of the new music, but I have specific songs saved for a reason: they are the songs by that artist I enjoy and want to listen to again. Please change it back or make this a user prompted option. Otherwise the GUI is intuitive and helpful. *** Edit 6/14 (Switching 4 stars to 1): When I wrote this review several months ago, I was slightly annoyed by the new GUI in the recently played. Boy, I did not realize how much worse it could get. This new update almost makes the app unusable for someone trying to find their music in any way similar to what has been standard for the last 5 years. Undo this update or I will switch to Apple Music. I don’t pay this much money for your designers, programmers, and managers to make their product worse.
Dislike new update
by Geores92 on 2019/02/28 10:32
Updated recently and the changes made to operating are frustrating. My normal use, is listening to my downloaded playlists. Before, I could select a song and the “shuffle” option would stay on. This no longer happens, so it would play the order it’s in (alphabetical, easier to find by title). If you play outside the “queue” it will play in order no matter what. My second issue which is even more frustrating, if when searching for a song within a playlist, the only music it will play is within that search. My most used playlist has 270+ songs, but a search for let’s say “Post Malone” will bring up all matches, but when I select, it will only play “Post Malone” instead of other songs on the playlist. Third, there was a step added to opening the queue. Before, you could pull up the “Now Playing” screen and just click on queue. Another step was added, not a big deal but feel it is not needed. The queue also also goes away after the next song starts which also did not happen before.
Amazing App just two issues
by Magzzsszzzzssss9726😒 on 2018/03/30 17:06
I love this app and as a premium subscriber it suns even better. However, there's been a really annoying glitch that doesn't allow me add more songs to a playlist I just created. The number of songs isn't even the issue because it will simply not register my tap and if it does it will freeze and not add the song to the newly created playlist. This has been going for a few weeks now. Apart from this there use to be an amazing preview feature that allowed you to press on a song without playing or queuing it and it'd give you a 30 second preview of it-please bring this back it saved a lot of time. Aside from these issues though I strongly recommend this app, especially if you decide on premium. You can listen to your favorite songs in any order while offline and while traveling (airplane or road trips).
Great App but Preview Feature Is Gone!
by Ebr2002 on 2017/11/16 23:25
I love this app. It’s my primary music platform and has been for years now. I’m a premium subscriber and think it’s a great value for what you get, at least if you listen to even half as much music as I do (which is a lot, admittedly, but still...$10 a month of unlimited access to all songs, all playlists I or any other user has ever created, etc, all for the price of a single iTunes album? I used to buy at least one and sometimes tons more each month on iTunes. Now I pay $10 and that’s it. Nice. So why only 4 stars? They took my beloved Preview feature away. I loved being able to tap and hold on a particular song and hear a good 30 seconds of it without actually having to add it to the queue or play it all the way through. Or tap an album and preview most or all of the songs on it before committing to actually playing everything in full. It was great. And I want it back. Please?
Mmm
by AlphfaWulf on 2018/11/15 23:41
So, one it won’t even let me install the app on my iPad, it keeps saying an unknown error has occurred please try again. So I do, and it still doesn’t work. Two, the actual app has way too many ads, for example there is one that says “Tap now to get 30 minutes with no ads” so obviously I click it while thing ends, I listen to my song, and boom. Ad. Right there in the middle of my listening. Three, I feel like you don’t have enough skips or that there is something in the algorithm that makes it so you have all of the songs you don’t want to listen to and then you land on a song you hate (if that makes any sense at all) I believe it’s only 5 skips but even still. Four, I don’t like how it just takes a short playlist of your, say 5 songs, and when you play it, it plays ‘suggested songs’. I have a playlist so that I can listen to all the songs I want one right after the other, not so that you can just be like oH hEy, LeTs PlAy ThIs SoNg nOw. Anyway, I probably have more to complain about,I just can’t think of it off the top of my head.
ZERO STARS until further NOTICE!.!.!
by ANGfilmz on 2018/09/28 07:00
The last couple of updates are nothing more than a nuisance! I used to love this app, I didn’t care if it was on a premium account or free but the last few updates made using the app a little unbearable in a few ways. There’s NO LONGER a ‘MY SONGS’ TAB which makes the app less pleasurable to use. I can no longer see SPECIFIC SOMGS under an artist WITHOUT HAVING to FOLLOW the artist and LIKE ALL of their songs. I literally go to my ‘ARTIST’ TAB and DON’T see ANY of the songs I like, and I’m FORCED to play ALL of the artist’s songs INSTEAD of the many that I only LIKE by the artist. I DON’t want to HAVE to make a PLAYLIST every time I want to hear only 23 of the 84 tracks from a single artist it’s RIDICULOUS. It also PLAYS the EXACT same SONGS over and over even when in shuffle. The updates took over half of my songs away and I’m LIVID. And it RANDOMLY plays songs and artists that have NOTHING to do with the playlist or genre I’m TRYING to listen to. This app needs to return back to it’s former glory I’ve been really fighting for this app. People try to sway me over to PANDORA but I DON’T want to resort to using that crud.
