    Hey everyone,

    pretty sure there are a lot of Spotify users out there. So I'm gonna ask you: Does your playlist overview lately takes a long time to load?
    Since I updated the app (Snap, version it takes about 15 to 20 seconds to load the overview.

    This is extremely annoying, especially if you want to jump from one playlist to another.

    What Spotify version do you use? And do you experience the same?

    (btw. I'm using a Z10 with 10.3.1)

    I noticed that, too. It's slower than in previous versions but not too bad.

    To me this is really annoying, since my 3 year old budget Android device jumps really smooth between single playlists and the playlist overview.
    It's even worse, when I start the app. Then it takes really really long. So frustrating.

    What Spotify version are you on?

    Edit: Just to compare the time it takes to go from one playlist to the overview: When I jump back, it takes about one round of the circle circling sometimes even more

    You're right. It is a bit slower now that I've played with it.

    Well I tried to downgrade the App and tried different versions and both said that there's a problem with the app and that I should reinstall (1.0.498.3176 is the version number shown by the device monitor) works, but isn't any faster than the newest one, wich you cant get from Snap or Amazon App Store...

    I'm sorry to say so, but for me the Spotify version from Amazon is exactly as slow as the Snap / Google version. It seems to be the same.

    Dont you see a the "circle" when you jump to the playlist overview?

    It's really annoying. I love the hardware of the Passport but I am losing patience with the Software. It's not really BlackBerry's fault but if I were Chen I would entice some of the big players to develop native apps for the platform.

    This is so true. We do not need any of those game and junk apps on BB 10. But we need the really big ones!
    I know it's a business phone, but even though listening to music - and today streaming, especially via Spotify, is the way to do this - is a must have!

    Yesterday I was driving in a foreign country, while listening to my music on my BB using Spotify. Of cause I had playlists loaded down, so I wouldn't have to use any data. But then I got logged out of Spotify. Had to go online to log back in, and still - all the playlists I loaded were gone

    All of the latest updates have been giving me a headache. Have cleared the app cache, reinstalled, worked for a bit, but quite frustrating when it takes so long to load, or doesn't load at all, and search function doesn't work at all. Reverted to May go back to previous. There are APKs up online

    As I already mentioned: I've tried some older versions I found online. But some of 'em didn't work anymore or had the same behavior as the newer versions...

    But nevertheless, good luck and tell us if you found out something about this...

    Could you share the link to download this version of spotify? Tried this one and it didn't work at all.
    As mentioned above, the app always told me to reinstall.

    Thanks for sharing your experience, but for me it's not really an improvement over the current version

    Was hesitant, but I updated to Spotify 2.9. Thought it would be have the same as 2.8, but so far so good on this release

    Issues still persist, after a while, which leads me to believe some problems are server side. 2.9 is a solid release. Am sure it resolves some bugs in the app

    I also have issues with the newest version: it loads forever!
    Had to downgrade to through Apptoid.

    Now it works again.

    Version is out. Not sure if it's beta. Not on Google play yet. New interface. Same back end

    Liking the interface. Not sure if it matches iPhone or closed to Material design specs

    So, broke functionality, even on Android devices. Search button is not visible in the menu. Reporting that Spotify has fixed this in onwards. Works well in Android. Hopefully it will be released next week. I am happy the app works better now
