    This is because a lot of losers on beats now got that hand me down mentality and honestly aren't even that good but constantly trying use shit like spotify and play counts to determine a sense of worth in their shit..

  • brad_frost Brad Frost (@brad_frost) reported

    @jongold @spotifydesign I would be so down for the ability to customize Spotify's UI.

  • Daniel_Ceresia Daniel Ceresia (@Daniel_Ceresia) reported

    @SonosSupport , the issue has popped back up. The @Sonos App will not show playlist from @Spotify. Please tell me this isn’t the start of the Spotify option disappearing like the “From Your iPhone” feature that is supposed to be no more soon

  • phoneme007 Dean Moreland (@phoneme007) reported

    @LewisCapaldi @edsheeran the sounds on the hill at tonight's gig at roundhay park was terrible, worst sound of any concert we've ever been to. We'd have been better off staying at home and listening to Spotify via the Bose. Total waste of £700+.

  • POA_saiyans Clover_x (@POA_saiyans) reported

    And before anyone starts on the whole -9.00 thing... on my bank app ot literally means minus nine pounds. And then shows the initial funds beside it and shows it has gone down by that exact amount. Spotify sucks smh

  • mich_liva Michelle Jane Liva (@mich_liva) reported

    @SpotifyCares solved my problem in less than 10mins! Talk about an A+ service.

  • Insane_Suraj 𝙎 𝙍 𝙆 (@Insane_Suraj) reported

    I am irritated from these french songs popping up in the queue. @Spotify @TIDAL please sort this problem.

  • Jarminx Jarminx Gaming (@Jarminx) reported

    So tired of @Spotify desktop app NOT working. Installing, resintalling, unstalling & reinstalling. Starting to hate Spotify, & I've been with them for more than 10 years. AND, every time you reinstall you have to redownload your music. Downloading 10,000 songs on 15mbps is a pain

  • wtvbreanna ☏ breanna ™ (@wtvbreanna) reported

    no one : spotify : woah there buddy slow down ! your brokeass only gets 6 skips per hour

  • kimoowoojin Amanda 💚 (@kimoowoojin) reported

  • Username_nvx twiitter useer (@Username_nvx) reported

    @peadophiIe @Yan93423398 @filipmatasx @aupspapille3 @PopCrave @ladygaga No problem stream Shallow so it can stay the most awarded song and become the longest running #1 on Spotify 100

  • abby_bxby Abby (@abby_bxby) reported

  • hannahfrostt Hann 🐋 (@hannahfrostt) reported

  • CarpentersKeys CarpentersKeys (@CarpentersKeys) reported

    @jamesblake why isn’t airhead an associated act on wiki or Spotify, took time to track him down again.

  • yuckpuddle anemic confetti (@yuckpuddle) reported

    spotify really shoving bts down my throat tonight i dont want these

  • Jay_Glenny Jay Glenn (@Jay_Glenny) reported

    Also I'm switching my streaming service to Tidal because Spotify has slowly become sucky (the loss of the widget was the last straw). But now i have to find a way to organize my 50 playlists without folders or custom sorting. Time to dust off those archivist skills!

  • Dromedaari1 Dromedaari (@Dromedaari1) reported

    @SpotifyCares Home wifi network, the one I always use. Like I said, no problems with my normal laptop with the same wifi. Cleaning cache doesn't help for me, like it didn't help the previous speaker.

  • brujeraea princess ♔ (@brujeraea) reported

    I just found out seven people are following my **** me down music playlist!!!!!! but Spotify won't tell me who they are I'm Screaming!!!!!!!!

  • Felix_Hudson_ Felix Hudson (@Felix_Hudson_) reported

    I wish the @spotify #widget was the most problematic thing in my life at the moment, proper first world problem here guys. They prob doing changes to it and bringing it back, so people aren't moaning about the changes after the simple update 😂 #Spotify #widget #problems

  • 2blokes1cup the phone man (@2blokes1cup) reported

    @SpotifyCares I have never been more frustrated with a music player since my 'anti-skip' CD player kept skipping. Why did something work better before the update. Fix this or my wife and I will not need your service. Dead air in songs, app freezing. Terrible!

  • JayRd3770 Jayme Rodriguez (@JayRd3770) reported

    Lately feeling so lonely and down that only thing that cheers me up is listening to @ColbyBrock playlist on spotify

  • MsMiaSharp MAKE BO PREZ AGAIN (@MsMiaSharp) reported

    @SpotifyCares I've never had an account with spotify and today my account was charged. Has my service been hacked. I need this charge reversed.

  • EDMDavidCook Khole Sprouse (@EDMDavidCook) reported

    Wait why the hell did Pro Nails get taken down from Spotify 😡

  • swanson_alexia Alexia Swanson (@swanson_alexia) reported

    Is spotify broken or am I just stupid

  • glowybone Atlas (@glowybone) reported

    I can tell when Jun posts my memes in that server because I'll be like "oh there goes my entire spotify playlist liking this tweet."

  • sonnenlichtmade Sunlight Maggot (@sonnenlichtmade) reported

    Many people (including me) have problems with their spotify app stopping songs when going into standby mode. Try the "always on" mode in your settings. Worked for me. #spotify

  • spinthrust Ian (@spinthrust) reported

    @Delicious_Tacos Spotify went down the shitter too

  • reallycoolalias Samuel Rees-Thomas (@reallycoolalias) reported

    @tmurphyNZ @sparknzsport It's because Apple are crooks. You'll find it's the same with Spotify on the app store. Android doesn't have this problem, however.

  • Godven Steven (@Godven) reported

    so i’m on the train listening to the hannah montana 2 soundtrack and we go through a tunnel and the music stops playing cause i have no service... i got mad at spotify for a sec but then i realized i don’t have any hannah montana albums saved for offline use and now i hate myself

  • tariyalaman02 あ ま ん (@tariyalaman02) reported

  • KingAMBRO Ambro🇭🇹 (@KingAMBRO) reported

  • 0206smile SOWETO (@0206smile) reported

    @brickyardd @JoeBuddenPod @JoeBudden @Spotify @thisisrory @MAL___ @parksmusic @Slvter @Ian_Schwartzman @EriksonCorniel I've peeped that too and dude is getting in the way of me listening to the Pod It has come to a point i just cant stand him anymore. For some reasons they think we think they should have walked out when that's not true, they should have held it down instead Mal was ass kissing

  • stargirlwonders ale (@stargirlwonders) reported

    why is spotify down :(

  • DahloMetric Dahlo (@DahloMetric) reported

    @AndrewPeak @SpotifyCares Pal, wasn't really bashing you, was pointing out how stupid it is to not have a widget. You should have to fully open your phone, pull the menu down etc.

  • shassmusic Shass (@shassmusic) reported

    A little shoutout to @Spotify and @SpotifyCares for their top service and helpfulness in regards to #accessibility! After I reported a navigation issue for #VoiceOver users for the #iOS app, they've done their best to resolve the issue and with the last update, they... 1/2

  • GlowySweetFab Chloe (@GlowySweetFab) reported

    @ChrisEvansForum @BBCOne @ChrisEvans_USA LOL like you don't already own it. Like literally the second the movie came out I brought it and I have watched it an obnoxious amount. I know all the dialogue. I have the movie's soundtrack on my Spotify...like it's a problem 🤣😂

    Hi @SpotifyCares my brother has been removed from our family account and we tried to verified his account multiple time with our address but it is not working.

  • GRMaggot Beer City Maggot (@GRMaggot) reported

    @HeavyMetalYetii Windows down, new Slipknot on Spotify

  • motifsinthecity Mike (@motifsinthecity) reported

    @roesler_brian @1000TimesJeff @lLUdeathmetal These are all good points. One issue I wrestle with in an era of streaming, is how the decision to engage with these albums on Apple/Spotify still puts money in the pockets of problematic artists.

  • ZelooperZ | Avant Garde | (@ZelooperZ) reported from Detroit, Michigan

    | @Spotify helping to fix the problem rn so hopefully I can get it back up by next week |

  • destoooooo Destiny Kosloske (@destoooooo) reported

    @peytlog @Spotify The only time I really have that problem is when I switch back and forth between my computer and phone

  • S1Jerry_ Jeroen Dobbelaere (@S1Jerry_) reported

    @kennethdee Noone else. I've found multiple threads on the internet from people experiencing the same issues, seems like @Spotify might need to come with a hotfix for this.

  • WisperISP Wisper Internet (@WisperISP) reported

    Spotify will reportedly test a price hike for its premium service in some markets

  • thereditalics stacy (@thereditalics) reported

    @SpotifyCares Oh. I'm aware. That function is just terrible. The widget made life easy. Like an app is supposed to do. Having to constantly go into the app or lock screen is just obnoxious. Literally every other player has that. You should be eliminating steps, not adding them

  • kittensfur ً spotify premium setahun 50K (@kittensfur) reported

    SPOTIFY ERROR LAGI GUYS 😭😭😭😭

  • mrporsche302 Mrtruthteller (@mrporsche302) reported

    Pandora, spotify, are still being downloaded with no complaints. Black man obtained a streaming service call tidal and people went crazy and complained it “cost too much”. Black man trying to change a system within....people still complained. Think about it . #JayzNFL

  • PrittyGirlKay KAYR (@PrittyGirlKay) reported

    @ATT @Spotify Do not get att they don’t care about their customers they just want their money , they don’t care if your service is ****** up

    @SpotifyCares what is a phone number that I can call and talk to some one. I have a more complex issue

  • qualitybontent 🦝™️ (@qualitybontent) reported

    okay but does anyone else have the problem where videos on twitter won’t play if you paused your music on Spotify

  • nuno_gouv Nuno Gouveia (@nuno_gouv) reported

    @musicnewsfact @taylorswift13 @ArianaGrande Literally Queens of Streams. Spotify it's by far the biggest streaming service (despite only have 100 million paid accounts worldwide).

  • gameroppression Edgy (@gameroppression) reported

    @SpotifyCares I have an issue

  • ashleemarie22x 𝓐𝓼𝓱𝓵𝓮𝓮 (@ashleemarie22x) reported

    @SpotifyCares It's. 👏 not. 👏 the. 👏 same. 👏 Removing the widget essentially discourages hands-free driving as you can no longer change songs with one click, which is by-law the maximum you can do in several states. This was a terrible decision.

  • Aidan34583525 Aidan (@Aidan34583525) reported

    @SpotifyCares I said this.. but it takes 30 days to verify.. therefore I'll have to pay for 30 days at the standard rate.. SheerID is terrible please go back to @MyUNiDAYS

  • PapaPysklo Nathaniel Pysklo (@PapaPysklo) reported

    @SpotifyCares Spotify keeps flashing when it's on my portrait (flipped) and using half the screen. After disabling Hardware Acceleration, the problem still persists. I am on Windows 10 Pro.

  • Sand2Stone Will (@Sand2Stone) reported

    @RedskinsReview @HilareeBanks I did not know that. A brief search turned up the original version on a 1975 David Cassidy album. Barry's was better but now I'm stuck down a Spotify Partridge family rabbit hole wondering if I have any bell bottom jeans buried in the closet.
