I often use the Spotify app on my MBP but I think the user interface could be much improved. It should function more in line with finder and enable me to select multiple songs and drag them into an existing playlist for instance. Or be able to select multiple playlists and place them on top of the playlists list. The same improvement suggestions also apply to iTunes / Music app BTW when it comes to playlist handling. I also would appreciate to be able to select themes / colors for Spotify app.

A few days ago, I would say Spotify is the best music and podcast app. But the changes to the library system are so bad that I am very disappointed after system updates. Everything just turned into a jumbled list of everything I followed.

As a streaming service, it's just okay, but the auto run at login happens even when set to NOT do that. It's not that good to put up with poor programming and even worse testing.

Am I old or does this app suck? I find the interface hard to figure out, and I'm pissed at the way it auto-launches every damn time regardless of how many times I ensure it's NOT a login item.

I love the service, but hate the app. It's the slowest app I've ever used on macOS—and this is on a 1-year-old computer with and without hardware acceleration turned on. I give the app two stars because it has so many features you can't find on the horrible web player. But I really wish we'd see a complete rewrite using actual Apple HUD elements instead of a slap-dash port of the Windows code. But of course, when they change chips, they'll have to rewrite again and fat chance that'll happen anytime soon. I wish they'd just make APIs and let third party developers create their own competing apps for the service.

I have the latest version of Spotify Premium & I absolutely LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!!!! It's my main source of entertainment & the best feature is that you can add songs to the queue depending on what you feel like listening to at the time! I have over 2000 songs. Listening to my favourite music is the best thing I love about life! 5 Stars! From Angie Wilkin Auckland, New Zealand :)

Spotify is forbidden on my Macs. Here's why: It's rare to find a more invasive application. Spotify has FORCED macOS to open the app absolutely every time you boot your Mac. The only solution is to DELETE the application. I've dug around in the Library folders to kill off all traces of daemons, automatically loading processes, login items, ad nauseam. And yet, somehow Spotify found another method of FORCING Spotify to boot with the OS. Therefore: VERBOTEN! If a developer is this ABUSIVE of their users, their software has no place on my devices. Gone. A big [expletives deleted] to Spotify for creating the worst app I've used so far in 2018. Congratulations. Disturbing.

It has a greater catalogue of “old” music: 50 ' s to 90 ' s, Apple Music concentrates solely in new developments. I like more to have the classic ones, and many complete discographies (although they lack some). Compatible with old devices, until iPhone 3GS (lately with some problem). Apple demands last version of everything, beginning by model of computer and devices. Very many better design than the one of Apple. Very easy to use. As much in devices as in mac, it works better and more clearly. Apple demands several clicks to be able to listen in album.And not always it is possible to listen to a complete CD. Better connections with related artists. More options and better selected. Four or the five you Apple only gives that everybody relates,and so you do not discover really new artists. In Spotify, it is on the contrary, very abierto, many relations and a world of new developments. As much noveles as already consecrated. Impressive.

The latest version introduces autoplay: if your chosen music finishes, Spotify will just put on some random music. It can be switched off but is on by default. Some may like that but I really, really hate it. If I want tot listen to random music I can turn on a radio.

I like Spotify and use it a lot. But there are serious problems with both the interface and the service. For example, I recently was unable to use Spotify for 6 weeks. When I came back I found that 5 different albums were no longer available in one of my playlists. This happens often. Sometimes single songs disappear. And these are not pop hits, mostly they are older recordings. Also the interface is unreliable. Try randomizing a playlist and you will see. The progress bar often goes blank during playback. Sometimes a song will keep playing no matter what you do to select another. The worst part is these problems are longstanding. Spotify seems to have little interest in fixing them, even though users complain long and loud.

Since using Spotify, I have no longer problems with searching for favorite music. A huge collection of artists and genres makes it easy to create new playlists as often as you wish. A novice to this app may experience some difficulties with logging in and handling all the possible options but don't give up. Once you worked it out you will be grateful for developers for such a wonderful application. Thumbs up!

There is a problem with the most recent iterations of Spotify. I experienced Kernel Panics on two different iMacs running Yosemite 10.10.5 when trying to launch Spotify. Until this gets sorted out, I advise Spotify users to stay away. My iMacs have never crashed until this recent bug in Spotify or Yosemite not sure which. What is clear is this bug could potentially damage your hard drive or necessitate disk repair as it did in my case.

Considering Spotify's privacy policy: "With your permission, we may collect information stored on your mobile device, such as contacts, photos, or media files. Local law may require that you seek the consent of your contacts to provide their personal information to Spotify, which may use that information for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy.", and the monetary damage they cause musicians, I can not rate this "free" software low enough. Truely nothing is really free and this software is not worth the harm: www.wired.com/2015/08/cant-squat-spotifys-eerie-new-privacy-policy/

This program is down right devious. I deselect open at login, and as soon as I close it it has changed back on its own to open "minimized" at login. In addition, every time I open Spotify it shows up in system preferences as an automatic login item. This surreptitious coding is down right spooky. If there not doing it intentional, which I find hard to believe, then the people coding this program are not that bright.

There are two things that really bug me about Spotify: 1. Start-up time. Why does it take so incredibly long to start up? It can take as long as 80 seconds (on a decently powerful Mac) after launching for the search field to actually start functioning. 2. Why no graphic equalizer? Every other music playing application I use (even the menu-bar located Radium) has a graphic equalizer, but not Spotify. And don't start saying "use Audio Hijack Pro" or some other such system-wide utility. I just don't want that hassle, but I do want to be able to make the music sound decent!

Spotify is a really nice service. I use it every day. I switched to the paid version a while ago!

I do get rather annoyed that every update from Spotify comes with the mantra "Release notes were unavailable when this listing was updated.' Is it too much to ask that we are told why we should bother to update? And is there any possibility at all that it will reach version 1 this millennium?

Use it a lot and works as advertised. The only thing I would like to see -> fast and smooth working GUI.

This latest version is great but it is too dark in appearance. Maybe they should change the GUI. I didn't see any themes for it.

You should think that they tried to keep not only the latest machines working (dedicated decommissioned Mac Mini as a musik machine) but no. Later versions of (the now ugly) Spotify will not work (tried several older machines), and suport is a messy dead end. Goodbye Spotify - after 7 years as a paying customer. There are so many alternatives available now a days.

If you're watching for great features and very good sound quality you should decide for Spotify. I tried several streaming services already. Spotify has a cooperation with my provider. I'm able to use Spotify on the go without using my data volume.

I love my premium subscription and I wouldn't buy a CD anymore. Quality is good enough for me. The only thing I miss is to sort complete albums. I wish me an overview like iTunes.

Spotify refuses to let me download their software if I am in an unapproved country (based on my ip address where I am at). Secondly, they require a facebook account, which is a deal breaker.

Spotify phones home to Google Analytics. The only reason to do so to my knowledge is to allow Google surveillance of my computer behavior. If your app is going to surveil my computer use, then ASK MY PERMISSION FIRST, DAMMIT. I have used my reverse firewall Little Snitch to deny Spotify access to Google Analytics forever. I suggest other folks with reverse firewalls consider doing the same.

The iOS app is way more awesome but the Mac version is still good. Just the inability to use Airplay from the App is a shame.

Consumes more resources than I would like, but I kind of like the interface. Offline Playlists (require Spotify Premium subscription) are great if you have have unreliable internet access.

I'm using the free version of Spotify and I really try to like it. The service is very nice, especially if you don't have the money to buy all the music you like. But the app isn't really good. I don't like its design and it is very hard sometimes to find what you are looking for. Rdio offers a nicer and cleaner UI and I would use it instead of Spotify, but it hasn't a free version.

What a terrible application! Not to discuss the Spotify service at all, I'm a premium user and have my separate issues with that service, but this app… So many options have no preferences controlling them, the entire UX is counter-intuitive for a Mac user, nothing seems to be in the right place. Please Spotify, give me more control over my experience, not less!

I don't want a Facebook account just to sign up to use Spotify. In my opinion this is a stupid choice to limit signing up to this service to only the Facebook user. You only have a choice to have a FaceBook account to sign up. Madness!

Overall, I think that this current iteration represents a very solid app for a great (premium) service. There are some functions missing that you can find in iTunes but given the fact how young Spotify is,I would say that the potential to be the best juke box is definitely there. Keep it up guys! BTW: How about a changelog?

This is awesome. I got the premium membership. The only thing is I wish they would have a feature to rate my songs between 1 and 5 stars. You can star a song though and that is good but it only means you like it and puts that in a playlist called starred tracks.

A question, since I couldn't seem to answer it on the Spotify site. Of the few internet radio channels I listen to, most are independents not found in the commercial services / apps. Does Spotify have a way to add these, or is one (yet again) locked into only what this company considers worthwhile?

Some of the minor quirks in the user interface and design are simply dwarfed by the scope and convenience of the service, in my opinion. Spotify is a must-have.

What was once a promising app is slowing loosing direction IMO, it seems that the team are far more interested in making money than the end consumer. I think a business like this needs an equal balance. Switched to Grooveshark. thanks bye!
