  • JoePrilPhoto Joe Prileszky (@JoePrilPhoto) reported

    @SpotifyCares Have already done this. No help. Genuinely think there's an issue with the software itself, believe me when I say I've been through all the troubleshooting steps several times.

  • KuyFox Sorrow Proper (@KuyFox) reported

    @coda_robo tbh this is why I keep running back to Pandora and its thumbs-down feature. I really, really want to like Spotify, but they're crap at filtering *out* things.

  • coda_robo Coda (@coda_robo) reported

    dear spotify!! please stop recommending pogo to me. or provide me a way to tell your service that it shouldn’t show me his stuff anymore. please

  • imcountingufoz Stephie (@imcountingufoz) reported

    @Lucy_K_Author @cp_musiq It won't on actual Spotify yet because we haven't released anything... But, if you click the distrokid link, and scroll down a little there should be a follow on spotify link :)

  • ScribalPractice Jeremy Cushman (@ScribalPractice) reported

    @reneritchie Having issues with Apple Music. It won’t allow me to skip songs from my car, which I thought might be my car, but Spotify works fine. I’ve already contacted Apple, but they keep referring me back to my car manufacturer... who refers me to Apple... 😑

  • hendrikvh Hendrikvh (@hendrikvh) reported

    Spotify sure builds some terrible software for a place talking so much about engineering practices.

  • phila_ncala97 P H I L A (@phila_ncala97) reported

    @Kwenza_Nzama @trivsXX try @spotify titled "RAGER UNIVERSE" ...that's if it not already taken down.

  • samluvgood sam🕷 (@samluvgood) reported

    @xTayNicole @Spotify Omg that’s insane. Okay I’m going to login to the computer then to log them out. So annoying

  • spaceship_ricky kay. (@spaceship_ricky) reported

    @SpotifyCares I can't login bc I'm offline. It's stuck in a loop. my subscription ended while I was offline. I've tried reinstalling too

  • EMMKAYTEE MK (@EMMKAYTEE) reported

    @epi_fckn_phany India Spotify and Warner have some issue. There are case going on. It not yet solved. So all songs which are under Warner Bros label will not be available in here

  • JosipJPusic Josip Pušić (@JosipJPusic) reported

    Hey lads (@RMCMband), I think your first album is broken on Spotify: Sage plays but there is no sound for the entire song, and Vista Live/Porcelain play as the exact same. I don't know if it is just me, but that is a thing, apparently.

  • ChapelUSA CHAPEL (@ChapelUSA) reported

    not to be ᵈʳᵃᵐᵃᵗᶦᶜ but if ‘friends’ gets 100k streams on spotify we will drop a stripped down version

  • copperwingwoman taejin au 💕 lovely 🇿🇦 (@copperwingwoman) reported

    @Zee_OT7 @ShookyCooky95 Considering me only got Spotify this year, I'm not surprised. Also, so many people have data issues that spotify isn't really a plausible method for tracking our listening habits

  • Josephyn_M Josephyn (@Josephyn_M) reported

    @SpotifyCares Hi, I'm having trouble with my payment for Spotify Premium. Never had a problem before with my card. Thanks.

  • matheusr64 Reich (@matheusr64) reported

    @killyourfm @sam_daiya The outdated software repository is the worst problem. Programs like Discord and Spotify really don't work while outdated, and keeps forcing the user to upgrade to a newer version. When you update the program, Deepin's own software update manager forces back to the old version.

  • quiztits Alexander Quizzz (@quiztits) reported

    I didn’t know you could block artist on Spotify! Loves it. I just blocked Kanye. He is so problematic and gone down hill since after 808

  • zelotisme nox (@zelotisme) reported

    The Spotify chick is basically urging ppl to buy premium bc she knows her interruptions are annoying, I’m sorry you had to bring yourself down like that sis, I still hate you tho

  • jmeijrink Jorre Meijrink (@jmeijrink) reported

    @Tesla, please: - Add interval setting for auto screen wiping, I find the automatic setting too slow currently - Allow to login to Google maps, so I can see people who share their location with me - add state to Spotify and TuneIn so I can resume playing, after switching sources

  • mattcassinelli Matthew Cassinelli (@mattcassinelli) reported

    @chuckyc17 I think people have the problem with Spotify but I’ve never seen it

  • Zafar_Sami Contrarian (@Zafar_Sami) reported

    @sehrishnaseem04 Hmmm. I use my son’s paid Spotify and haven’t seen any issue on normal wifi or LTE. Only used Deezer a couple of days and haven’t run across a song restriction, as you have. Youtube also has geo restricted content. I have no issues with restrictions if using a free service.

  • shenaniganing lucerez (@shenaniganing) reported

    @antouko1 nope, it should be available on free as well. spotify's documentation for this issue just said to reinstall it if it isn't giving you the options you should have - maybe that'll work but it's not super helpful.

  • PediaKpop Fly_up_high🌈 (@PediaKpop) reported

    @SpotifyCares I did now but it's not working 😕😔😔 why only it happens with me 😕😭😭

    @Spotify I logged out of the app with offline mode on and now I can't login!!! Says I need to turn off offline mode but won't let me in past login screen!!

  • Fluorescenttn Fluorescent Orange (@Fluorescenttn) reported

    People are out here arguing “Spotify is trash” or “Apple Music is garbage” when in reality they’re both right. Streaming is terrible. You should actually buy music you like instead of expecting it for what might as well be free.

    @SpotifyCares Hi. I have done that but it is still not working.

  • elly__Darling elly 💜 BTS (@elly__Darling) reported

    @missmzbungee @BTS_twt I'm very active during voting & I have another phone who is basically streaming on Spotify all day so joining a fanbases will not be a problem it's just that sometimes even fanbases makes some mistakes & don't want get dragged because of other admins 🤷

  • sidjtaylor777 NachoNinja (@sidjtaylor777) reported

    @SpotifyCares Nah you're alright, me and others have had this problem for well over a year now and multiple complaints have done nothing to fix the issue on multiple different androids and iphones

  • Arianne923 Ariana (@Arianne923) reported

    Hi @SpotifyCares, there is an ongoing issue with Spotify app, when clicking on the 3-dots menu to share song, add to playlist, etc, the app crashes. I have a Redmi Note 8 pro with android 9. Having spotify premium, this is very inconvenient.

  • ViktheViking1 Vik (@ViktheViking1) reported

    @Gareth_Stringer Ha! Have had to change password and contact Spotify to fix the issue. It's common if you don't have strong passwords.

    every music service I use seems to be like. just kind of obsessed with the idea of me listening to the new jimmy eat world. like did Jimmy eat world threaten to murder the staff of Spotify if they don't get enough listeners

  • johng225 John G ⚛️🔭🔬🧬 (@johng225) reported

    @MPendlington @AppleMusic I think the simplest solution is probably to cancel Apple Music, and subscribe to Spotify or the Amazon streaming service. Seems the easiest way to solve my (albeit first world) problem.

    @Neelbir It's a shame to hear you've had a problem with your spotify Neil. Please let me know how you get on. Kais

  • LeithDanny LeithalD (@LeithDanny) reported

    @SpotifyCares someone has hacked my account, they have changed my password and I can’t login to change it as everything is now in Arab. This is third time you have allowed this to happen. Please contact me to fix this.

    @nikkodeg We can't upload it via spotify due to copyrights issue. 😅 So playlist lang containing the songs used.

    @gaana please cancel my subscription. I have reached you on 16 Oct for the same via email but yet no response. Due to declined transactions I have been charged by my bank more than the amount of subscription. Other Apps like @Spotify provides better service than @gaana #fraud

    So shuffle just played "Hurt" by @xtina & I started to tear up bc that song gets to me, but AFTERWARDS it played "When You're Gone" by @AvrilLavigne & a waterfall just started running down my face... safe to say Spotify wants me to do a crying release tonight.
