    I love love love this app but someone PLEASE explain to me why my (fully updated) spotify app keeps crashing every time I go to play songs off of my liked songs playlist!!! I can't even click on the playlist without the entire app crashing and it is REALLY aggravating me. This is the first and only time I have ever felt the need to leave a review but I can't get in contact with anyone who can explain this. And trust me, I have tried everything....someone help?

    download The update makes trying to listen to downloaded podcasts unbearable. There are so many extra steps, first go to library, select podcasts, select downloaded, select the podcast you want to listen to then select the episode you want to listen to. If you want a different podcast you have to do everything all over again. I can't constantly keep pulling out my phone to even listen to anything.

    apk download Recent updates have made the list of liked songs to disappear. New songs can't be visibly added to the list. If I go under an individual song I can see that it is liked, yet no songs appear in the playlist. It is possible to activate the list through Google Assistant. Sometimes when you press play on a podcast, nothing happens, and then you ha e to restart the app to get it to work. Edit: pressing play on a new podcast no longer works at all.

    دانلود برنامه Extremely frustrating app. Every day I use this app and it takes about 1 minute to actually load until I get any response. Then the music won't play when I tap on the song for about 30 seconds regardless of if I'm online or if the song is downloaded. Even when I am online it will say "Go online to see menu". It never works how it should and is extremely frustrating to use. Often I lose patience with the app and just use YouTube.

    thia app has been so irritating this past few weeks. recently i've been logged out of my account. i tried logging in several times but it says my password is incorrect. I didn't change my password and i even made it visible while i'm typing to make sure it's correct but the app still won't accept it. I uninstalled and reinstalled it, tried the same password and IT WORKED. UGH.

  6. Cam Pitcher-avatar

    The new UI for the library in this app is terrible. The old UI was a giant pain to navigate and download podcasts and somehow you miraculously made it even worse. Just make a separate podcast tab or something. Every time I download an episode, it also puts that episode into my "episodes" list. This isn't something anyone wanted. Now when I'm done with a download, I have to delete the download and then remove it from the list manually. So annoying. Also. Don't mix my music and podcasts together

  7. Craig Jazz-avatar

    Craig Jazz


    Spotify is a great music app. A massive library of music. I estimate that 95% of all recorded music is on here. I like that the app shows how many plays "Top 5" songs have for all artists with over 1,000 plays. Also, I love the custom playlist spotify makes. They recommend lots of artists similar to what you like. One minor thing is not showing an album count or length of song right away. There are edited versions of most explicit albums. You have to search the album and artists to find them.

  8. Brian Mzoli Qamata-avatar

    Brian Mzoli Qamata


    Great app, but I would love to get an equaliser just to have good quality streaming, some tracks need an equaliser to sound better, great app, I love it, even took a while before I even saw ads, I appreciate that but I also understand the role of ads on apps. Plus the monthly premium is really a reasonable price, what stands out is that I can also get the monthly subscription by just visiting the rearest retail stores a few km away from me. I love it

  9. Brooke Rife-avatar

    Brooke Rife


    I love this app, however, there is a bug where the app gets stuck on a song visually but continues to play what you're wanting. After a while, the app crashes. Very unfortunate that I thought it was my phone having issues qnd purchased a new one for it to do the exact thing on the new Samsung s21 ultra. I use spotify for my work and had the app crash 4x in 50 minutes. Reinstalling doesn't help.

  10. Greyson Miller-avatar

    Greyson Miller


    I love that they're trying to make changes to podcasts, but dear god they have to fix podcast downloads. I suddenly wasn't able to listen to my downloaded podcasts because you can only listen to downloaded podcasts that are in your "my episodes" folder. I don't mind that too much--took me a bit to get them all on there. But when you delete a downloaded podcast, it isn't automatically removed from "my episodes." Ridiculously tedious; needs a different system. Keeping this at 1 star until fixed.

  11. Travis Higgy Melton-avatar

    Recently, maybe the past 3-6 months. The app has been almost unusable. The currently playing information is always incorrect, this renders the pause/skip/rewind options completely useless. Recommended artists are 80% incorrect in either the display picture, artist title or description. For example, the card states Abba, has a description for Arctic Monkeys, has Action Bronson as the display picture and then when you press play, Lunar C spins up. Also issues casting daily

  12. Brian Dierks-avatar

    Brian Dierks


    Been using this app for music for a while. I have a family subscription. Started using it for podcasts recently and the podcast portion of the app is terrible. So many times I open the app while listening and it starts the podcast over from the beginning. Such a pain. And the car mode is horrible, get rid of that all together please! I'm hoping for improvement.

  13. Jesus Mandeiro-avatar

    The Lion's Mane is earned here by Spotify's accessibility across devices logged into the same account. It's so useful because you can monitor the live progression of your queue and control the media playback from say your tablet to your smartphone. Simple. You can even change the playback focus between devices in a couple of swift motions. It's an unmissable experience, truly sensational break!

  14. Nyree Lemmens-avatar

    From 1/5 back to 4/5. The long loading time (and sometimes no show) of offline albums seems to be caused by the alway-on vpn setting. Spotify incorrectly thinks WiFi/mobile data is trying to connect although both are switched off. By also disabling the vpn the offline albums are snappy again (even when loaded from sd card). Having to enable vpn manually is not ideal but doable. I hope Spotify fixes the issue; must be an easy win!

  15. Arif Sabri-avatar

    Arif Sabri


    Alright spotify, i really want you to understand this. I love this app actually at first when i was download, i pick the songs only(the popular ones) now in the current days. I cant find the new all you did just put the songs on the bundle. This is hard for me Solution like the songs and random it. I tried the premium but i dont have any debit cards and credit card and the price was so expensive i cant afford that in a month. So just use google account for premium and felt like youtube music

    In general, I love this app for its versatility and options. I even upgraded to the paid subscription. However, the app frequently stops and/or crashes. My phone is new and completely up to date, so I don't think it's that. Fix the stopping issue and I'd mark it 5 stars.

  17. Mike Filicetti-avatar

    Mike Filicetti


    All this app does is crash, I swear. Every time I open it I know I'm going to have to wait at least 3-5 minutes to even be able to use it, if not restart it multiple times. Horribly made, and even worse maintained. I love the product but their dev team is an utter joke.

  18. Pumpkin Spice Bleach-avatar

    Pumpkin Spice Bleach


    Has lots of songs, but I have one complaint: The "extra songs" feature can get annoying, and there's no way other than adding more songs to a playlist to turn it off. I have a very short Liked Songs playlist, and I don't want to listen to any music other than what's already on the list. I guess it's just a personal preference, but most of the reccomended songs are nothing like the ones on my list (Ex. mostly light rock type stuff, getting reccomended stuff like rap and boy bands. Why?!)

  19. Mick Ryder-avatar

    Mick Ryder


    I have a Samsung Note 8. I've been having increasing problems with the app on my phone. First my "liked songs" dissapeared and wouldn't let me add any more. But I still saw the hearts clicked on the songs when I searched for them. Now it has gotten so bad that no songs at all are playing and whenever I try to use it in bluetooth mode, it disconnects the phone from whatever I have connected (headphones, car, etc). As of right now (April 1st 2021) I cannot use the app at all to listen to music.

  20. Rachel S-avatar

    Rachel S


    Edited: seems to be fixed. The bottom play bar displays the wrong song, as though it is stuck. Hitting the play button plays a different song. Songs stop playing randomly. And then when it actually does play, I can't turn it off. I can't believe I pay for this service. If not for needing spotify on my smart watch, I'd still have YouTube Music. Loved that app.

  21. Michael Funk-avatar

    Michael Funk


    The Android app is extremely buggy. I regularly have to force stop it because it stops responding. And when I do that music continues to play for a good minute (or when I pause the song it keeps playing too). If I had a better option I would switch in a heart beat. 4/1/21 It's like Spotify is trying to get me to switch to another service. The app is still buggy as hell and on top of that this new UI update is terrible. PC is even worst.

  22. Kaylee Decker-avatar

    Kaylee Decker


    Like another review said, this is irritating. Much like the same review, it's really annoying to not be able to listen to the song YOU want to listen to. Rather you go with what the app wants or you just don't listen to music. The thing is that this isn't the case for other devices I use Spotify on. I can pick songs freely on my computer, Xbox, and tablet, why not on my phone? Until this gets fixed or changed, I won't be using the android version.

  23. Chris Welborn-avatar

    Chris Welborn


    As a premium subscriber, of which I will not be for long, I'm really disappointed in this app. It used to work great. Now, not so much. In the app itself the play/pause and previous/next track icons are slow to respond to input. In Android Auto you can forget it. They don't work at all. Besides that, the now playing title gets stuck and doesn't correspond with the song that's actually, which you can't stop playing because the pause icon button doesn't work.

  24. Valerie L-avatar

    Valerie L


    Works well. It would be nice if one could add bookmarks within a podcast. Sharing songs is cumbersome if you only have the free version as you have to open the link, find the name and song then search it elsewhere to be able to listen to it. Otherwise it plays on shuffle.

  25. D хотел-avatar

    Used to be a great app. Several updates have changed that. First they modified the library, reorganized things in ways that made it less sensible. Okay, whatever, my music is still there. Well now the app is barely usable. Insane load times, saved music doesn't readily play, the volume goes to the max and locks there, constant crashing and glitching, I could go on. Like I said, barely usable. It was perfect in 2016, for example. Wish I could go back.

  26. JustInTime211-avatar



    I really enjoy Spotify. I'm just looking forward to the day when you can actually download all of your songs instead of there being a limit where it just stops. I'm a music head and I have well over 10,000 liked songs and the fact you can only download up to a limit of songs is disappointing. If this eventually happens 5 stars for sure

  27. Altrixx Hance Unciano-avatar

    I decided to go premium because of the satisfying service. But recently, the lyrics doesn't show. I even tried reinstalling the app but there's no change. If this is only a bug, please fix it because having lyrics is a big factor in enjoying the app. On the other hand, let me know if the provider stopped providing lyrics for this app. Thank you!

    As a service, I love Spotify. What bothers me is that their app sucks for Android. It crashes. Doesn't play music and the only thing I can do is start my whole phone. Other times it says I'm disconnected and can't play a song, a song that's downloaded. None of this would bother me much if it wasn't an almost daily occurrence. Oh and it has these problems most when using wireless headphones. Wireless headphones that don't cause any other problems for any other app.

    Spotify has been my music source for a while now. I am an individual premium subscriber. The music quality is superb when downloaded in the highest quality, and it's UI is easy to navigate. However, an issue that I have been experiencing since the latest update is that the app would suddenly close in a few minutes when I play my songs. It doesn't matter what I am doing on my phone, it closes and my music is cut off. I hope that the developers will fix this issue. Until then my rate will be 3/5

    This app is pointless, plays same tracks repeatedly. Stops playing after a few minutes even after I set the timer for 1 hour. I constantly have to push play. It's frustrating when I'm busy or away from my device. I don't care about the ads. I do not recommend this app. I deleted this app after a month of use so I did give it a fair chance along with experimenting with the options in settings to attempt to resolve the issues. The Playlist I listen to can also be found on YouTube w/1k+ tracks

  31. Dakubou4217-avatar



    I would rate it 5 star but there are a few problems; Spotify keeps stopping about 10 seconds after leaving the app (I I've tried every troubleshoot that Spotify listed) and also every once in a while Spotify will start playing other songs not in my playlist when I have the setting for that turned off for a specific reason.

    Spotify is not a service for persons with disabilities. With the new update, it is unusable. The do not offer solutions when you are reporting the complaint. They force updates with no information on how to revert. I pay for a subscription and there are still advertisements interrupting my use.

    I have had this app for awhile and it has always work good. But recently it has not worked good. I can hit play on a song or podcast and it doesn't show that it is playing but you can here it. Then when you try to pause it want pause. I have uninstalled then reinstalled but it still doesn't work correctly. I really hope this gets fixed or I will have to cancel my service with Spotify because my phone is the only device I listen to it on.

    It has great quality but the major problem is that there are no songs you want there. I didn't pay for premium for almost nothing,like what be hell,it's either the song is not there or not available for my country. I rather use soundcloud because my favourite song are all there where else here have literally nothing

    My favorite music app! So much variety and I can listen to just about anything I want. My only beef is with the app when offline. If I try to pull up my playlists and podcasts, it just kind of sits there and stays blank and doesn't pull anything up. Otherwise, the app works very well. Honestly, I don't go a day without using it. Best app ever!

    I really like this app to listen to music..but did you update or something? You don't have skippable ads anymore, and after every song there's an add. You really want everyone to buy premium don't you? That's selfish. I'm sorry but it is, I want to at least listen to a few minutes of music with the lie of “Enjoy your next 30 minutes of music” more like “Enjog your next free 3 minutes of music.” Smh.

    I'm not quite sure Spotify understood the word "shuffle". For months now, out of my 550+ favorite songs, I've only been listening to the top 50 selected by Spotify. It almost seems like the app is trying to play me songs I like to listen to, since many of those songs are the very ones that have recently landed in my favorites and have been listening to more often lately. Short: When I press a button that says "SHUFFLE PLAY" in all caps, I expect to hear all of my songs in shuffled order!!

    Really not happy with this app right now. It has recently been very buggy. Many tracks of my favorite artists do not work. I can't find a many tracks as I used to on search. Sometimes a font is used that is hard to read (double lined is hard on some of us with vision issues like blurry and double vision or cataracts.) The app is missing or won't play much or any the Ella Fitzgerald Collection for example. Why try to fix things that weren't broken? BUGGY like crazy now. Ugh! S21+. 5g.

    I say I hate your library set up so much I don't have enough characters to explain in a review. So you completely obliterate it. Good job. Liked songs returns you to top of playlist; I don't know why I don't like it but I find it annoying. Podcasts don't have auto download or playlist by show features. I do miss having half started podcasts on an episodes page. I think even if I had playlist options it would be a good home page feature. Even with all that... I don't hate it anymore so thanks.

    Horrible app. Account somehow keeps getting hacked and getting ahold of customer service is absolutely ridiculous. Their web page has more 404 errors than a website made specifically for that exact reason. Forget about removing a device from your account if you use a phone because why would you be able to? I mean, I was only paying for the service so why would I be able to use all the features? Want to log out on all devices and they have a button for it? It don't work. Don't waste your time.

    Not enough patience! The app is very slow and won't even let me purchase premium. Only giving me an error that I've already done the trial. I DONT EVEN WANT THE TRIAL just let me buy premium. I have a Samsung Note 20 and there is no reason for anything to take this long to load. Guess I'm sticking with Apple music. Same price but at least they work.

    This app frustrates me. I canceled spotify premium because if I am going to pay for a subscription service monthly, I expect the app to actually work. My phone is not old, but the app takes FOREVER TO LOAD ANYTHING. I can tap on a song or playlist and then it just goes to a blank screen for a minimum of 10 minutes. Sometimes longer. Sometimes the app just crashes. I can't listen to podcasts either because it will go to the main page but not display the episodes.

    Really like the app. Have 30 day trial for Duo plan. Found out there is no option for annual payment, I am not going to fool with monthly payment of any type so I guess I'll just go back to free version if I keep it. Very disappointing.

    I can't do anything without the premium package. When I had it for free it gives you options to watch a video and get uninterrupted music for 30 minutes. But that's not the case. After two songs in it's already given advertisements. The advertisement repeats itself for almost 30 minutes, sometimes I can listen to one song and the rest of the way as I am listening it's all advertisements. They make you want to get premium and I don't think it's fair. Sometimes I want to listen to free music.🤦🏼‍

    Just another ML platform gone wrong. Once, Spotify was a great place to find new music and explore genres. Now, it just does everything possible to keep you in your filter bubble and prevent exploration. Garbage recommendations, without any way to dismiss or reject them? You're pretty confident in your algorithm there, Spotify. Sure, recommend that album for the hundreth day running. I'm sure I'll listen to it today. Sure, recommend the album I *just* finished listening to; 100% necessary.

    It's a great app for listening music. But I can't share songs. That should be fixed. It would better if there were lyrics with every songs. Besides, I can't see what's next when I play a music without a playlist. And even I can't see the previous songs when playing a playlist. After playing a song it vanishes from the playlist.

    This app manages to use all your data (>2Gb in less than an hour), even though you don't use it or are connected to wifi. It happened 4 times already. The first times I blamed it on myself - maybe I just didn't realize that the phone was not connected while streaming. However today, without using my phone/ or the app, while under wifi coverage, Spotify managed to use >2Gb in less than an hour. All the downloads are set to low quality, the use of background data is off, download only over wifi is on.

    Awful! No way to cancel subscription if unable to access email address in use when first subscribed to Spotify. No phone number to call, no live chat without logging in (which I can't do without access to the old email account that I can't get into). So now I am withdrawing all my funds from my bank, closing my account permanently, and filing a complaint with the FCC. Just to stop Spotify from taking $9.95 from my account every month into eternity! OUTRAGEOUS!

    Honestly it's a well designed platform with cool features. But the fact the when you press "shuffle" it's not actually random just kills that user experience. It's truly awful and makes me wanna go back to Apple Music. It's been like that for years and there's no excuse for not allowing people to choose between algorithmic shuffle and true shuffle

    Honestly, it's a good app but the price is too much for premium... I pay the money but I mean 10 dollars a month is a little much just to listen to music. This app could be so much better than it is but I don't see them actually caring about the feedback anyway so I guess this was pointless but whatever I guess. Please if you actually care reduce the price of premium... $10.00 is too much

    I've had years of great use with this app. The past year I've had nothing but problems. Skipping music, doesn't connect to my car's bluetooth, android auto app, or any other Bluetooth product well at all! Showing incorrect playtimes, not correctly showing what's currently playing for well over an hour. I am very disappointed, and am considering discontinuing my subscription. 😔

    Extremely disappointed! I created a playlist 4 years ago for gym, going out and travelling. I continued to add to the playlist throughout this time, after the most recent update the app tells me the playlist is missing and is not valid. There have been several issues with this streaming service in recent time, which I have let slide but now I think it is time to change my music streaming platform.

    I pay for premium through my vodafone contract. Wish I hadn't signed up for it. Great app... when it works properly. For the past week it keeps closing after a few minutes/partway through a song. ANNOYING!!! Also the artwork doesn't always match the song & artist. It gets "stuck" on a song previously listened to some time ago.

    The app has a ton of features, but what are features when the app boasts a more interactive experience when it comes to Tech Issues. When an individual opens a music app the expectation is, in one more click, tap, touch - I am gonna hear some music. Oops!screech, brakes, Tech just put the issue into a click, click, tap, touch, click, tap, tap , tap, click, click, touch omg, really. Off to the next app. REALLY, Spotify?REALLY, Samsung? You guys are supposed to be leaders. I got no music. GrrrrRRR

    This app is so buggy. I constantly get told that it can't play in the background even though it can. It refuses to load up previously downloaded materials.

    When it's working, it is terrific. Updates only seem to cause error and malfunctions. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and there is little change. UPDATE March 2021 - It is now 'the usual' for terrible functionality -and I'm paying for this. App building can't be that difficult. Shouldn't have to uninstall and reinstall just to try to make it work properly. Disgraceful to take money for an app that is best described as "experimental". And no contact to attempt to explain either.

    pay £10 a month for premium and then my app loads slow or doesnt play songs and then you skip to try the next one and it plays the previously skipped song but with the next songs title or it just stops playing music even though its still showing the seconds moving 2 years the apps been like this so I want a refund for the 2 years before I even think of keeping the app really like Spotify but these issues and the fact I've wasted so much money on it so thinkibg of new apps to pay for instead

    This app has been a 5 star app for the vast majority of the time I've had it. However, this newest update is complete trash. I'm lucky if I can get a song or two to play. Also, why would you resort all of the playlists?!? I have over 40 and now I have to fix how they're all sorted once again. Someone messed this update up big time. Very displeased.

    ive used this app for i dont know how many years now and have been throughly blown away with every update since i first started using it. but lately, the app has been extremely slow and almost unresponsive (i have a samsung s20+), even in offline mode, it struggles to play my offline music without gltiching :/ it crashes while playing music and still plays music even though i can't reopen the app. works terrible with google maps, and is almost unusable at this point.

    Extremely buggy, even with a subscription. Randomly stopping songs halfway through, playlists stopping halfway through and having to open the app in order to keep playing songs, randomly changing from playlists to recommended songs that aren't in my playlist. Generally, everything about the playlists doesn't work correctly and will bug out on a regular basis. Podcasts will sometimes skip back and forth 15 minutes or more and you have to scroll around for a while to find your place again.

    Past few days Spotify haven't been working, it's 'no internet connection' the whole time. Offline mode is off, I have plenty of mobile data, I connected the phone to WiFi, I even updated the Google webview which fixed the other app crashes the past week, still no connection on Spotify. I tried logging out but couldn't log back in. I restarted the phone multiple times. Still not working. I had to uninstall and reinstall for it to get back up.

  62. Abayas-avatar



    Spotify is so easy to use on the pc. I love it. I can make playlists of songs I like and listen to them when I want to, with a few ads of course. On mobile? Thede is NOWHERE I can play my playlists. Sure, I can look at the list and edit, even listen to a 5-second clip, but whenever I want to actually play something? Bam. Random artist, random song. Can't really skip it either. Somebody has failed pretty hard on creating the UI.

  63. CubedDimensions-avatar



    Never reviewed an app before, the only reason it gets 2 star is bc the service is good. The app is borderline unusable. Constantly telling me it's offline even when I'm at home connected to wifi. And when I'm "offline" it won't even let me que songs on my downloaded playlist. Shameful really that i pay for this monthly. Casting is also broken and i have to go to extremes to play the song that i want through my speakers. Awful.

    I'm liking the suggestions and recommendations that come on my feed but as a person who also repeatedly listens to a lot of music, I would like the option of downloading only specific songs in an album, not the whole album. Also, it takes so much time to navigate and go to Offline Mode and even Car Mode. Would having quicker toggles for these make sense? Would also appreciate if I just had a tab in my Library that showed only my downloaded music even if I am online.

    I've had Spotify for about 3 years now. And I can say I love it!! I've used the free version a lot as well, I only have the premium because when I really listen to music its usually outside or somewhere without internet. Otherwise it works perfectly the quality is good and I don't ever feel like I'm lacking music.

    Overall, a great listening experience. The interface is simple and easy to navigate, and the catalog is extensive. However, there are a few quirks and bugs which I have encountered. Podcasts, in particular, have glitches (sometimes they start, sometimes they don't). Songs sometimes refuse to start. I would still recommend it, as the bugs are occasional, and not totally experience-ruining.

    App used to work great but for the last 6 or 7 months it has stopped working correctly. App constantly closes in the middle of playing podcasts or if you pause something and try to come back to it a few minutes later the app stops responding. Either have to open and force close the app 30 or 40 times before it starts working again or uninstall and reinstall. Starting to feel really pointless to pay for a service that only works for 5 to 10 mins a day.

    Songs stop playing at 9 seconds. Spotify refuses to accept responsibility for their app behavior. Tried reaching out online and their message system hAd An ErRoRr. I'm over it. So many good services out there these days without playback issues. Seriously, your app has one job, play music, and it can't do that because of all this other bloatware. Super disappointed and definitely not worth $120 PER YEAR!?!?!?!!!

    I love spotify as a service but their app development is awful. Every time an update rolls out, it never mitigates any of the rough edges that I dislike, and will invariably destroy some functionality that I value. Most recently, the ability to play songs - a pretty core functionality - has been broken. I will select a song and nothing happens for up to 20 seconds. This would be an unacceptably long load time on its own, but the app doesn't even show me anything to indicate that it is trying

    Platform is amazing. I love being able to game and control the music through the app. Super freaking cool. Spotify brings some awesome tech to the table there. However, when I go to listen to things on my phone, which I spend the VAST MAJORITY of my time on in terms of music, it is abysmally slow. Like, makes you think your phone is broken slow. I think they took a jump they maybe shouldn't have in retrospect, though it is admirable. In any case, just give me my MP3 player back!

    I have a problem with the newest update: after having listened to only ONE SONG from one of my playlists that has over 50 songs in it, it starts playing suggested songs even though I turned this feature off. At first I enjoyed the app, but now I can't even listen to songs I like without having to listen to unrelated suggestions after only one song of my playlist. Trash update (well at least I think it comes from the update I've only had this problem since a few hours ago)

    I don't understand why the Android app doesn't work well. The iPhone app is super responsive, I never get stuck waiting for things to load, and it has no bugs. But things take forever to load on the Android app for no reason. The "find in liked songs" search feature also isn't working now. Edit: Raised to 2 stars for the addition of the recently played feature. Been waiting for this for ages and so happy it was added.

    The app was good and worked well for years, then started failing the last few months. For some reason lately, it will simply stop playing songs in the middle randomly, will show the same song on the play screen and not switch to the next, sometimes not even show the play screen at all so I can't play/pause or skip, won't work with Bluetooth correctly when playing in my vehicle, etc. The list goes on, but you get the picture. Been a premium and later family member for years now. Now I'm leaving.

    I really love this app. It's really amazing even without premium. We can make our own playlists and can put cover for our playlists . We can follow our favourite artists and there are remix songs . I think with premium we can download songs and listen ad free . But this is the best music app i've ever used.( The only prob. I've is lyrics are not available on my spotify)🌥️

    A lot a music to choose from, but lack of one important feature. Shuffle in Spotify is not shuffle, but random. It happens that I only hear 10 songs over and over again, while the Playlist contains 50+ songs. Very annoying. This complain is all over internet for at least a few years. Till now not solved by Spotify. Thinking to switch to Apple music to see if shuffle works there.

    SAME SONGS OVER AND OVER. No matter how much I try to seed the radio functionality differently, it just keeps coming up with the same tracks over and over. Pandora is much much better for radio like play and discovering new stuff. I suppose if you want what you want and you're willing to put together exhaustive numbers of playlists then maybe Spotify is your choice.

    Recently it started cutting the songs like it is a scratched CD on a bumpy road... or just simply stopping the song after 3 or 4 have played. I have gone to settings and allowed it to play in the background but it changes nothing (and I keep getting the "allow the app to run in the background" message. Even though I already have!!) Please fix this, it's really annoying. I am paying this app to not be able to enjoy listening to more than 4 songs without it having some issue...

    I love Spotify. To all those people giving bad reviews because of "bugs"—songs are always random, even if you specifically search for them. If a playlist is too short, suggested songs will be automatically added to avoid the circumvention of the randomizing feature. I've been using Spotify on all my devices for a few years now. I love the fact that everything on mobile is randomized; it helps me discover new music, artists, and genres. I don't mind ads at all. 9/10 from me.

    Worked great until last update (2/25/21). Latest update (3/8/21) hasn't fixed it. Now it randomly stops playing in the middle of songs. I have to go into the app to get it to play again and then it completely restarts the song. After latest update (3/8/21) i have to go into the app and press play for it to work again. Over an hour span of time, I'll have to go in at least 4-5 times.

    The app is excellent except for one bug that occurs when in driving mode. When I make the song title full screen when I'm driving mode and then lock my screen, upon unlocking it resets me back to the first song of the playlist and I have to scroll back down to the song that was playing. this is not a consistent issue but it does happen enough to be rather annoying.

    The app with premium is solid, theres a lot of songs, the quality is good, download is quick and great when I go offline. If you listen to a wide array of music it definitely gives you the most bang for your buck and is cheaper than buying all the songs individually. If you cannot afford the $10 per month Premium costs, however, then dont bother. The app on the free version lets you skip very few songs, there are MANY ads, and you cannot listen to an individual song unless it pops up in shuffle.

  85. Jeremy-avatar



    the iPad version is soo much better than mobile, but that isn't saying much. I opted to watch a short video on my iPad for 30 minutes ad free. then after the 1st song, an ad. the mobile version will not play an album. maybe one song and then it switches to a different artist. if I want to listen to Pandora style music I'll go to Pandora. I'm sure this is all an effort to get people to pay and I'm guessing the revenue stream isn't worth the lack of listeners.

  86. CC Brown-avatar

    The app is pretty average. Some things that get me mad, is the over excessive amount of advertising for spotify premium. When you click to get 30 minutes of ad-free music, they give you about 4-5 advertisments that range for 15 seconds to 60 seconds. It really gets me mad because I want to listen to my music for free.

    Only issues i have with the app, when running on a cheaper phone with low internal storage the data cache needs cleared pretty regularly. Second issue is in the made for you, sometimes not all of your daily mixes will show. It will list like 2, 3, and 6, you'll have to search for the others. It's not a set list either, doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason. Just 3 or 4 out of the 6 mixes. That is a recent issue. Maybe be fixed in a future update.

    (Edit:-Just way too many adds recently. After every 2 or 3 songs there are at least 2 adds and sometimes 3 even. The quality of the adds are also not standard. It's seems like they are mocking the non-premium users. Earlier the adds were not of this kind. They can use as many adds they want but that should not be like mocking or insulting the users. School students don't have enough to spend on apps.) Best app ever used. It's Simple and user friendly approach with very good music quality.

  89. UndertaleLover2006-avatar



    There are weird differences depending on the device you use. On tablet, I can go to my playlist, I'll see the list of songs and I can select which song to listen to. However, on phone, there is no list, and if you select edit playlist to get the list, it'll only play a part of the song you select, so I have to shuffle play. Keep in mind I use my phone more because you need internet and a phone has mobile data. Also, why do you get 6 skips per hour, There was no reason for that.

  90. TheSphongleface-avatar



    I like how everything is fine tuned but you cannot select what you want to listen to and ofcourse there are ads that will give you aids. There are other alternatives, that don't involve bragging about your taste or spreading dogshit music across the globe. Greedy scum. It's not free. It's expensive, not for me and you but on a global scale. These guys haul in millions and you believe them when they say it's free and they don't want any money. (It's a bad/evil app)

    Overall a good collection! The only issue is the spotify continue to play on phone's speaker when it is disconnected from any Bluetooth device (CAR & Ear buds). This makes the app completely not usable as it is annoying to open and close the app to stop playing. First i thought it is the phone issue but when i try other apps such as Amazon music, Google music or YouTube music they work fine. When Google about this issue, came to know that spotify user have this issue and unsolved. Any solution?

ADS ADS ADS ADS ADS ADS! JUST LISTEN TO THIS ONE AD WHICH IS ACTUALLY THREE ADS IN ONE. It's a complete waste of time and an absolute frustration. Avoid this Ap if you like your music and your sanity at the same time. They added a bunch of songs to my liked songs that I never added just to make it even more ridiculous. Trash.

    It's good sometimes, but the songs being shoved into my playlists are annoying as hell. And I don't feel like wasting ten bucks a month on an app, either. That flaw is the main reason I've decided to look for other music apps. Edit: One year later, still the same problem. Just get rid of the "playing suggested radio based off of ___" and suggested songs automatically playing in place of the selected playlist.

Weird that such a juggernaut has these start up app issues.

Also crashes frequently when playing podcasts, losing the spot and forcing me to fast forward to where I think it stopped. Garbage software.

    I got this app with confidence as I had used my sister's Spotify before and it was really good. However, this is not the experience I was expecting. It was really good at first and then It added ads. These were fine at first. Then I took a break, and when I come back, I have to pay to download songs, ads are everywhere and lie about the 30 minute ad free listening, songs sometimes won't play, and when I try to play the Playlist that I made, it plays an unwanted song that isn't on the Playlist.

    If you're considering paying for premium consider that music you download gets deleted randomly by the app, offline listening is a lie as half of the time it simply doesn't work. Podcasts with video don't work offline even if you have downloaded them. I'm also getting ads on premium and I don't know why because customer service is abysmal as I've been waiting over 3 weeks on a reply.

    Spotify is a good app to listen to music with, but 1 of my MAJOR issues is that everytime i favour a song, every single play list that spotify makes will have that song. And it gets VERY annoying when you hear 1 song over and over again. I recomend Youtube better. Even if you have to keep the tab open, you can choose what you listen to which in this case, is so much better

    Out of all podcast apps, spotify is the worst. The skip 15 seconds button goes back WAY more than 15 seconds most of the time. When i connect to Bluetooth in my vehicle, even if spotify is closed, it automatically plays spotify. No other app does that if it's not open. It randomly skips to the next episode in the middle of the one im watching. Video won't play when its connected to Bluetooth in a vehicle. All around a bad app. And now the mf play button won't work! This is the worst app ever

    "Listen to an ad by clicking on the screen for 30 minutes of free music". Lies. All lies. Clicked the screen and listened to 3 ads. Music starts. Hear 2 songs. Then more ads.

    Slow, glitchy, and very poorly optimised. The Podcast section especially so - audio stutters, crazy loading time, and the Daily Wellness playlist doesn't add new music. The "Discover Weekly" suggestions are awful, and often use my background music as basis for recommendations, or worse - they just recommend covers and other versions of songs already in my playlists. I would switch to another service, but I've put a lot of effort into creating playlists here.

    Fantastic service if you are one who listens to music a lot. The premium is certainly worth the $12 a month for all the access to music you get. Some complaints though; the app does have a few noticable bugs. 1. One of my playlists is not recommended music anymore, and I cannot find a solution. 2. When in offline mode the app has a tendency to forget what song you were listening to. 3. Sometimes, without warning, the app will just decide to redownload all of your songs. Overall, great service.

    Spotify is cool but the app is broken. It's gotten to where I can't even use my phone to listen because of the frequency of the issues. The player gets stuck showing one song even after it's over and others are playing. It gets stuck on the same song for weeks. Sometimes the player disappears entirely. The app also randomly closes and stops playing music. The app has been unusable for months. I've paid for premium for years but that may soon be changing.

    When a podcast is about to end (less than 15 seconds to finish) and you press the "Forward 15 sec." button, the podcast time is passed and you can go forward more than the duration of the podcast. Even when I'm 10 minutes after the full duration of the podcast, the app doesn't recognize the error and you can advance forever without going to the next episode. Fix it please.

    The app lately isn't a fan of being paired with a Sonos speaker. It might play the music just fine, but it won't show me what the current song is; the image is stuck on the first song. It also has so many duplicate albums that my library has to be cleansed weekly of songs I've liked twice. That's especially frustrating for playlists I've made. Update: the sleep timer also doesn't work. I'll set it for 30 minutes, and music will wake me up 5 hours later.

    I enjoyed it when I first started using it enough to become a paid user. Over the last several months it has unfortunately gone seriously downhill. It utterly refuses to play songs at random and the only option is to manually skip over the song. It just sits stalled, not playing. This even happens to songs I have DOWNLOADED to my phone for offline play! It seems to work fine on a desktop, but I may have to cancel my subscription soon. I'm not inclined to keep paying for something so randomly buggy. What good is a music app that won't play the songs you want in spite of having them in the collection? Deeply disappointed in the current state of this app.

I haven't seen software this buggy since Windows 95 days. Total failure. I guess I won't be listening to Rogan anymore. UPDATE March 2021: I installed it again, and it's still just as terrible. It will not download podcast episodes, and streaming stalls. This is spectacularly bad. Every other app I have ever used works well.

    Everything is perfect with this app Except the fact that the ads suck. It's like they have a criteria: if you want your ad to be listened by people it hAs to sound annoying to hear :( And no I ain't wasting my money on premium when I can buy chips 👎👎 But there's this method: when the ad plays, you just clear spotify, like swipe the app away, and then go back to the app and continue playing the music :)) no more ads :D

    This app is completely unusable. I only use it to listen to the JRE podcast and it can't even do that without crashing. Now I can't even open the app on my Note 8. Updated 3.16.21: Got a brand new S21 and the app still sucks. Doesn't play in the background even when I have everything turned on to allow it to do so, this app is the only app I have that has this issue. It also crashes and doesn't remember where I left off so I have to start over a 3+ hour podcast, useless.

    It's been good but now Spotify is adding to many commercials. Also commericals are so much louder then the music it actually hurts my ears when they come on compared to the music. Another thing I noticed is when playing playlists it keeps playing the same few songs over and over. It doesnt really go through the whole list of songs I picked. Updated 10/14/20 comercials still extremly loud.

    Five ads after every two or three songs, shuffle never works well, offers 30 mins ad free but still plays ads after 20 minutes. Just had it offer 30 mins ad free for watching ads, I watched them as I washed dishes just for it to pop up a "press here for 30 mins ad free" without even playing a song, gives you "press here" offers at the worst moments (I use it while showering and washing dishes, times I can't touch my phone, I'd hate using it as I'm driving and on other apps like maps)

    It was working for about a week, now it won't play any songs. I have premium, and I've been through some troubleshooting with spotify tech support. They gave me the login info for a test account. I could play songs on the test account, but my account that I pay for, won't play any songs. This is ridiculous.

    Major bug! Not even just when playing in the background, also when I'm actually on the app. The song will get glitchy before it eventually stops itself all together and crashes. It can't be because of my phone, I had this problem on my old Huawai as well as this new Samsung. Sometimes deleting downloaded songs helps (which I obviously don't want to do!) or I have to reinstall the whole app. Fix this now or I'm gonna be looking for an alternative because I'm not paying for something I can't use!

    (review for premium)The app is slow, unresponsive, and buggy. Songs randomly stop playing, playlists take long to update. All these issues only with spotify app, not my device. The app caches your songs even if you disable downloading, stealing gigs of space. The recommendations are absolutely useless, I am getting daily suggestions for horoscope podcasts l. Would replace app instantly if alternative was available for something lighter and more reliable.

    Was better...right now I'm on WiFi and also have 5G service but a bunch of features just don't work. It also isn't smart enough to know when to switch to an offline mode to listen to music you download. Doesn't matter when you can't search for anything...Also want to add once it's in offline mode it somehow forgot all the music I downloaded for...OFFLINE MODE! What a waste of $10 a month. Edit a few weeks later and it's still trash. Pandora sounding better and better.

    I'm considering to cancel the subscription. Last few updates didn't fixed issues and app still suddenly stopping or crashing when connected to bluetooth devices. No matter on what device I've tried, it's always the same, and when I'm in my car and driving, I'm sure I don't want to restart the app manually and constantly. Also there is a new issue. The notification says, that it's downloading the content, but it never reach 100% even though all the songs are downloaded.

    10/01/2020 update: thanks to a new update this app has been even buggier than before. Not loading the correct song, not skipping when told. Displaying a song thats completely different from the one playing. 03/19/21 update: I wish I could give less than 1 stars. The app constantly forgets what song im playing and "desyncs" constantly, clearing the cache and force closing the app doesn't seem to work and I have to RESTART my phone in order to see the correct song im ACTUALLY listening to.

    I listen to the JRE religiously. The app fails in a few ways. Sometimes It'll play an ad mid pod & when the ad ends it'll completely restart the pod. Also I'll click on the latest pod & it'll direct me to an old pod, ultimately I have to uninstall app & try again. Sometimes it won't work at all and I just wait a day or so then try again. Pretty frustrating.

    Majority of the time it doesn't work anymore. I go to pick something to play? Nope, gets stuck on the circle of death or doesn't even load at all. Its a miracle if it even plays anything I select but suggested songs? No problem! Have loads in a row that you don't even want to listen to. Rubbish.

    I'm having issues searching for artist. Every time I try to search for an artist, I'm presented with an error message. I've tried to reset, uninstall and install, clear data, and even create a new account and all methods yield the same results... nothing. Once this is addressed, I'll updated my review.

    This app uses to be the best one out there. But recently I find it's AI is stuck somewhere. I don't get any new suggestions for song discovery. When I first started using this app, I loved how it helped me discover music. But recently i feel the app is in a stuck up mode. Additionally, a new borne emphasis on subscription is just too much to take. It's beyond aesthetic limits. They ask for subscription in such a way that you feel like a useless person for not subscribing.

    This stability of this app has degraded so much over the past 2 months it is almost unusable and has me seriously considered switching to Apple Music. Problems include: 1. Musically randomly quits playing 2. Selecting a song and sometimes it will randomly skip ahead to the next song for no reason (roughly 5 seconds into the song 3. Opening the app to change songs and Spotify is claiming it's not online, despite full signal and wifi connection

    I canceled my premium membership recently due to financial difficulties, but I'm still so happy with the application. I realized that what I was getting from premium was much more than what I needed and that basic membership is literally enough for me. Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed the ads free and unlimited skips on premium and I was happily spending my money knowing it's worth it. Love the app, service and everything. I hope this company reaches a bigger success in the future!🙂

    The app is buggy, and isn't well thought out. In order to play downloaded music, you must turn the app to "offline" which is a minor inconvenience once, but if you often leave internet access, it's a real pain. If you use the app for podcasts, this becomes a bit of a deal breaker for me. If you didn't have Rogan, I'd cancel my account. I may do that anyway unless things change. Update: Cancelled my premium membership and only use free now. There is virtually no difference if you're only listening to podcasts. In fact, I think "free" is a much better experience.

    This app is good, I will admit. But the only reason I didn't give it the full 5 stars this for this app is because the "loop" button which makes the same song keep playing works, but then it stops. And yes I didn't put the one that only loops it once, I put the one that makes it loop the whole time I want that song playing. Overall it's a great app and this bug makes me mad so I would like if you could please fix this. 10/10 recommend the app though. It's free and works great!

    I honestly don't have that many problems with the app. It's just that on my phone it adds random songs into my playlists which is annoying. No other complaints about the app functionality itself. Little suggestion: rather than saying "tap this video to receive 30 minutes of ad free music" You can just play the ad since the ad that let's us without premium get our 30 mins of ad free music whether we tap the thing or not.

    Rating for podcast experience alone - it is god-awful. the only benefit is the exclusive content that they've paid for, or allow you to access for longer than other avenues. but the experience of using this app is EXCRUCIATINGLY manual. You have to choose to download/delete every episode. Episodes are automatically added to playlists when you download, but have to be removed one by one because there are no bulk actions for those playlists. you can't change speeds for different podcasts, which is frustrating because different topics and speakers are better experience at different rates. this is an absolutely bare bones podcast experience, and you're paying a premium price for it. PLEASE add the basic features for managing and listening to individual episodes, and groups of episodes/shows. These are offered by FREE apps, like PlayerFM.

    It's the little things that count, and today my one star review comes from the inability to see the list of songs that were recently played. Not albums, play lists or stations. Songs. While driving I heard a track that I liked. It played after my play list ended, so Spotify chose it for me. I was driving, so I couldn't grab my phone to see the name (I don't have Android Auto). Now I have no way to see what that track was. How is this not a feature?

    I don't review apps. This is special. It is so frustrating using this app as it often takes forever for it to load as you navigate, even with simply going to your artists page. Even when all the songs you like are all downloaded, good luck getting to see them as you'll be facing a green circle for ages. I don't understand how it can take so long to do simple things. Fix it.

    Spotify as a service is great; the apps on Windows and Xbox work perfectly, but I cannot adequately express how terrible the mobile version is. Constant crashing, having to restart the app 4-5 times because it refuses to connect to the internet, repeatedly saying it "can't find an internet connection" even when every other online app on my phone can connect to the internet just fine. You guys need to figure this out because I'm strongly considering canceling my subscription.

    The songs are very good and you can add them to different places. But unless you have premium, it only realy plays the songs that they added and theres almost no way to get rid of them. And If i click on something that said how do i get to play this song, 75/25 chances that it'll go to something like "get a month free premium to listen to your favorite songs" if somebody wants to play a song, then dont be like " oh they want to listen to a random song that more than likely they have never heard"

  139. Pinekat-avatar



    So i downloaded spotify this year and everything was going great. I havent used it for maybe a week and i come back to it all strange. Not sure if its an update but it was really frustrating. With playlists, it kept adding random song that i didnt like and i couldnt rewind or fast forward my songs. If i pressed a song, it wouldnt play it but instead would play a dofferent song that i wasnt associated with.

    The now playing bar at the bottom often is not displaying what is actually playing, but instead what was playing last time I used the app. This is a recurring issue for about a month. I am constantly closing the app, and most of the time the only fix is a force stop on the app. Please fix this. 5 stars otherwise, user since 2013.

    I love this app but for the past couple of days it's been glitching badly. Like, I'm going through my home page and suddenly it will change the orientation of sections and playlists. My daily mixes are not showing up on the home page. Also the made for you section is not showing and if it shows it shows as "Made for Abdullah" I really love this app but this is really getting on my nerves. Please fix it ASAP. By the way, I checked if it was my phone or my network both of them are totally fine!

    I have been a Spotify Premium user for YEARS and I have NEVER had a problem. Up until 3/14/21. I've used it on long trips and drives to work and it has never been a problem. But now it keeps pausing frequently, like every 30 seconds. And I tried EVERYTHING to get it to work. The only thing that got it to work was to download my playlist and go into "offline" mode. THEN it started working.

    When I try to download or even listen to certain podcasts, after I hit the download or play button it continuously buffers or stays at zero percent, I restart my phone each time but that doesn't help. I've also re-installed the app completely. This is a feature I need to use a lot and not sure why there's no info online about a legitimate fix.

    Very good app. You can listen to different types/genre of music here, along with famous musical artists and also people who you never knew about and listen to their music to get a taste. The content is also very satisfying and easy to navigate. Premiums are very worth it, given that they allow you to download songs that you might not even find properly on YouTube. Nevertheless, one of the best music streaming apps available.

    Spotify has to be one of the worst apps available right now, used to love it. Downloads and undownloads my song whenever it pleases, skips songs all the time, will constantly shut down and stop playing as it wishes, takes forever to start up.. Glitches, lags, bugs out constantly, slow and useless almost all the time. Please fix or I can guarantee you'll lose millions of customers

    Since I switched to a Pixel phone the number of ads has been crazy!! Almost never goes 30 minutes as stated without an ad, and then a lot of times it will play multiple ads... Sometimes up to 3 or 4 30 second ads in a row until it goes back to the music. I'm about ready to go back to my old streaming service.

    ONLY issue I have is the not being able to just play a song or playlist without premium. What part of the listening for free if you guys let me play what you want me to. And I really wish you'd suggest instead of add songs to playlists. They automatically add to my playlists if I just hit shuffle without removing each song one by one....NOT COOL

    They just completely re-arranged the layout and I really really hate it. It's harder to navigate and completely messed up the listening experience and I don't even know how to get things to play in the order I like. The layout and accessibility of things was the reason I chose Spotify over other apps and now it's just ruined.

    I have a love/hate relationship with Spotify. I love their Discover Weekly Playlist but they really need to fix their buggy phone app. Songs will pause playing, not play, and is glitchy. The desktop version is great. This phone app is not. I have been experiencing these issues on and off for years and have checked my phone settings for any playback isn't my phone or settings. Get it together, Spotify. Makes me want to get rid of my paid subscription at times, it's so frustrating.

    I like it a lot but i keep with a problem since 5 months ago on my own account, i can't see the lyrics, it just doesn't appear in my phone; I tried with other accounts and they work, so it's just in this account:/ I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, changing email, restarting the phone and whatever, until today's still the same.
