Anyone use it?

I've been a Premium member for about two years now and have loved it up until the recent desktop update, which has been full of bugs to say the least. Still love the mobile app.

Finally found a way to get the library to hold onto the songs. Annnnnd there's a limit to the amount of albums you can save. Lol fuck this I'm trying out rdio.

The new desktop app has been crashing for me whenever I start playing an album. Gets through one song then fails. Anyone else having this problem?

I haven't had any issue yet with the new look Spotify. Been meaning to sign up for premium Spotify but just haven't done it yet. Selecting next track before current one ends to skip ads is just too easy. But I just got a raise at work recently, and got my first bigger paycheck this Thursday, so I'll probably go for it.

Perhaps I'm wrong, but I also encountered a problem where I couldn't save songs once I reached 10k last night while trying to fix my library.

Yep, heading to rdio.

The other day it kept disconnecting for no apparent reason and not showing the tracklist of the album I was listening to, when the rest of my computer and devices were completely fine. That's all so far. I like the new look, personally.

I don't mind the redesign on the mobile app, but the desktop is a bit of an eyesore. On the other end, my mobile app has been a big laggy, but the desktop is working fine.

I refuse. I've heard to too many artists complain about royalties from this, so i'll stick to buy physical albums only.

I'm a premium member but only pay like $5 a month cause of a student discount

I haven't really noticed any issues with the upgrade though. I swear by Spotify, it's such an amazing service.

I cannot get anything related to Spotify to load for me. The desktop app says I'm offline, the play.spotify.com web player won't load for me, I can't get the normal spotify.com site to load, so going into the community to ask for help there won't even work.

Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this? My computer/internet work completely fine otherwise.

EDIT: Error code 117, but I can't find what that means since all the sites describing it are Spotify-affiliated. Bizarre.

Ok sometime towards the end of last year my Spotify (free version) desktop app stopped playing and showing ads. I even switched from my old PC to a new Macbook and that didn't change anything until just the other day when the ads came back. I searched everywhere and it seems like nobody else has been as lucky. Now I'm downloading old versions and trying everything I can, it isn't working :( can't believe how sad this makes me. I just can't bring myself to pay them.

so there was some kind of new update, now there's no search filtering in local files and you cant sort by date added in local files either. those are two things i used A LOT, this is pissing me off. need another streaming service with local file support and a large enough catalog to overthrow spotify

Been thinking about switching over to Spotify mostly because of the Playstation app and local file support. Other than those 2 things are there any other positives with Spotify over Rdio? I really like Rdios interface, but I just don't think that's a good enough reason to stay with it.

Deeply regret canceling my student membership for $5/month. I never used it but now I use it constantly. My 3 months for $.99 just ended but I'll probably pay the $10 now
