    @FierceRobert @ShaniaTwain @UMG @Spotify @SpotifyCares The label are onto this but we agree - we understand Spotify linking albums that are identical and only showing one but not ones that are different - we had the same issue with some CRW releases and they refused saying the label had to

    @AshleyCameron0 Each interaction with a website, service or an app can be seen as a data point. Every song on Spotify, every comment on twitter, every like on Facebook helps tech companies build a psyschological profile of its users, which at best they would use internally and worst - sell on

    @androidcentral Nooo! I’ve been a play music user for years as it allowed uploads of personal libraries and offline listening long before Spotify. Don’t really like YouTube music idea tbh.

    Might move to Spotify anyway, as clearly Google aren't looking to improve the service for paying customers

    The only reason I downloaded Spotify was to have a music app that keeps playing music while I browse through other apps. NOT because it can keep getting stuck ALL the time. And I have to resort back to YouTube and its annoying feature of shutting down if switch apps ughhh!
