Discontinuation Notice: We will no longer be updating this tracker with recent data.

On this page, we are tracking Spotify for existing bugs & issues as well as new features that are being added to the service. We understand that it’s humungous task to keep all this info always updated on a single page like this, that’s why we want to make it clear that this tracker is our best effort at the moment. Of course, we are continously making improvements to this tracker page, and if any of you has any feedback for us to further improve this page, then you are most welcome to share it in the comments section at the bottom of this page. 
For now, this tracker is broadly divided into two sections:
  • Bugs, issues, and problems section
  • New features section
While we cannot accomodate all the details in these sections as we’ve tried to maintain them in an easily accessible tabular format, we do have a few useful resources for you in case you want to know more about a particular bug/issue/problem or new feature.
Following is the list:

Spotify bugs, issues, and problems
