    ◎Spotify日前推出一個經過改良的「你的音樂資料庫」,聲稱能讓使用者更快獲得想要的內容,但使用者看法卻截然不同,根據Spotify訂閱者在r/Spotify上的說法,這次更新的方向完全相反且幾乎不可能在大型音樂庫中進行導覽,其主要目的顯然是為了推銷Spotify近來對播客的興趣;已有數以千計的用戶要求Spotify改回舊版本。

    ◎由於這些變化,最近對於取消Spotify以及轉移到Apple Music的討論已經增加。

    ◎過去幾年曾發生過多起應用程式更新的爭議,包括Snapchat於2017年11月更新,該公司因此損失了數百萬用戶。Spotify尚未對最新的爭議發表評論。

    Some Spotify Users Frustrated With Recent Update, Moving to Apple Music Instead

    One week ago today Spotify launched a revamped "Your Library" tab that the company said was "designed to get you to the content you want faster." According to Spotify subscribers on r/Spotify, this update has done the complete opposite and made navigating large music libraries nearly impossible, with the main purpose apparently made to promote Spotify's burgeoning interest in podcasts.

    On r/Spotify this week, over a thousand users have gotten behind a post asking for the "old" Spotify to come back, with a few hundred comments discussing the various problems with the update. People have a lot of different thoughts on the update, but the consensus on what went wrong appears to be that Spotify stripped features in Your Library to make room for the new Podcasts tab.

    In the process, the Songs tab was removed and the recently played section has been moved and downgraded, showing fewer artists and songs and removing some of its customization features. We've linked some of the Reddit users who provided specific complaints about the update below:

    u/TehCrag: "Basically they removed the Songs tab and the Recently played section. And the albums tab only shows full albums that you have saved, so if you have 3 songs from the same album, they would be in the 'liked songs' playlist instead... which doesn't have an alphabet scroll bar.

    Also there's a giant podcast tab next to music. They're pushing them hard."

    u/Skippin101: "There is no alphabetical "scroll bar" on the right side of the liked songs, artists, or albums pages. If I want to play a song that starts with "Z", I have to manually scroll all the way to the bottom instead of tapping the "Z" letter on the right side like before.

    The recently played tab is a huge downgrade. It's now on the homepage, features far less artists/playlists, isn't customizable (i.e. you can't remove an artist or playlist from it or re-arrange it), can't be used in offline mode, and, worst of all by a country mile, when you click on a recently played artist it takes you to their artist page instead of showing you which songs you've saved by that artist."

    Due to these changes, a thread recently began on r/AppleMusic welcoming Spotify users who are moving over to Apple's streaming service instead, which appears to be quite a lot. Some Spotify users pointed out that they moved from Apple Music to Spotify for features like the recently played section in Your Library, which let them quickly jump back into the albums they had just listened to.

    Now that this and other features have been removed, talk of canceling Spotify and moving to Apple Music has increased. Even on Twitter, searches for "Spotify update" lead to numerous tweets about users frustrated with the UI changes and asking Spotify to revert the update.

    There have been a handful of controversial app updates over the past few years, including platforms like Snapchat. That app's November 2017 update, which was aimed at getting users to more clearly see the distinction between friends and celebrities, was so disliked that Snapchat ended up reverting some of the changes. The company still lost millions of users in the process.

    Spotify has yet to comment on the reaction to the new update.
