    @TheRealKominas Even James Hetfield pissed the question on the Joe Rogan Experience. Stating that these streaming services haven't even figured out yet to pay artists even decently. Especially talented underground and/or up and coming artists. I turned down Spotify.

    Brendan Radich (@BrendanRadich) reported

    @jaybirdsport I solved it. It was actually an issue with the @Spotify app on the @GarminFitness 645 Music. There was a recent update and I guess I need to sync with Spotify again even though my music was showing, it wasn't playing. I guess maybe it was a dumb license issue.

    Hubert Sawyers III (@HubertGAM) reported from Plymouth Township, Michigan

    Sure, they generate hundreds of millions of dollars on the back of hundreds of thousands of songs produced by artists who didn't really ask for Spotify to exist. Still, they have provided a service that the public has handily decided they dig.

    Well spotify didn't fix all their errors with mixing up the artist and song titles but we will ignore

    @SpotifyCares day 5 and Spotify despite being provided with relevant information have a.) not unblocked my account despite proving its mine b.) continue to rob me of my money for a subscription service that’s not fit for purpose and not allow me to access my music. Bad service!

    @SpotifyCares Can't access account because it was tied to a Facebook account and they have been no help in recovering it. I was wondering if you could switch the account sign in with an email instead.

    I keep playing spotify loudly between calls over here because this stupid **** next to me keeps reading his elearnings out loud after I already asked him multiple times to keep it down or read to himself.

  • JimAndrewClark
    Jim Clark (@JimAndrewClark) reported

    @SpotifyCares No, the problem does not happen on my phone. Works fine in the web player, too. It's only the Mac desktop client having the problem. I have turned off hardware acceleration and performed a clean install/reboot. Still no dice.

    Why isn't the Eddie Murphy & Antonio Banderas version of Livin' La Vida Loca on Spotify in this country. I pay money for this service 🙃 yes I'm aware I haven't tweeted since September but this is really important to me right now

  • laurenrecords
    Lauren Records ━☆゚.* (@laurenrecords) reported

    so many people complain about music getting taken down from spotify. 1. spotify pays shit 2. labels rarely pay the bands their share of royalties. stuff temporarily going missing on spotify is good in almost every case.

    I'm actually shocked Ghanaians are fighting over @Spotify, the bloody app doesn't event work in Ghana. Instead of focussing on other platforms that works for us. We are indeed our own problem.

    @shiner_sam I just don't stop so never have that issue. In fact, I realised the other day that I constantly have 6music on in my bedroom, whilst I have Spotify going on in my front room and I'm playing my piano or guitar!

    @_BuNNNy @l1quidcryst4l ohhh I only really use offline on my phone so that's probably why I haven't encountered this. that's whack. also, going to the Spotify forum (for fans OR artists) and seeing all the ignored issues is really depressing, lol

    Tyson Glaser (@AwkwardTyson) reported

    @VB_Audio Alright thanks. I switched my Spotify over to use VAIO3 instead of Cable-B for testing. So far no issues and sounds fine. I would occasionaly get the robot/watery sound on Cable-B and have to restart the audio engine to clear it. You guys are the best!

    Not just saying this because I work there but this panto is a right laugh. I wish the Darlo version of 'Down Town' was on Spotify.

  • EmaBurst
    Emma Burstow (@EmaBurst) reported

    Not cool @Spotify! 10 eps into a murder serial podcast &instead of serving 11, you give me 16! 10 minutes in before I notice &now it's basically pointless listening to the rest. The platform is generally TERRIBLE for podcasts. Forever taking me back to beginning on eps. Gutted!

    @SpotifyCares @S_Houts You mean his biggest fans who opted in to receive additional marketing emails only... I'll continue to not pay for your service and stick with Google Play. @S_Houts good luck with the venue presale tomorrow, they'll post the code on their Facebook event page most likely
