Spotify dark update: broken

This post was published 10 years, 1 month ago. Some material it contains may no longer be applicable.

For me, Spotify is broken since the last update. What the hell were they thinking?

For clarification, this was “my way” to use Spotify:

  1. Start a radio station with an artist I like
  2. Listen to the station
  3. “Star” every song i like
  4. Sync all stared songs with my mobile phone for offline usage
  5. Later, start a radio station based on your starred playlist and find more awesome stuff you like

And guess what? Spotify almost removed the star-feature. They replaced it with the so called “collections”. Whats the difference? Well, I don’t know. But what I do know is:

  • You can’t sync your collection for offline usage
  • You can’t start a radio station for your collection

But, there is a work around. Even if the “star this” button is removed, there is still a playlist called “starred stuff”. Drag & Drop your songs there and you are fine. So can someone explain me whats the use case for that collection stuff?

But seriously: Spotify-people, do you even use your stuff your self?
