Wishlist: Exact Playlist Time on Spotify
I love Spotify. I’m a proud Premium member, in fact, because I believe their product is exceptional. However there is one tiny piece of information I desperately want from them: exact playlist time.
Above is a snippet of my playlist ‘Jams,’ which Spotify tells me is 1 hour long. Yet, I assure you that with 25 songs, ‘Jams’ definitely has over 60 minutes of playtime.
For the first 1+ year of service, this detail (or lack thereof) didn’t affect my experience. However, it has recently become a thorn in my experience when I started teaching yoga. For class, I’m trying to build an exercise playlist to be as close to 65 minutes as possible. Much trickier than it sounds!
The interesting part is that Spotify shares exact minutes for any playlist under one hour, yet rounds down to the nearest whole hour for anything above 60 minutes - meaning a 1 hour 59 minute playlist would be labeled 1 hour. Odd.
I can’t see a reason why Spotify wouldn’t share this tidbit. Exact timing would improve my user experience and likely that of many others. Product management may have their reasons, but if not, could someone make that quick push? :)
