Streaming music these days has become a default part of our lives. Whatever be the situation, we always want the perfect song to play in the background. And when it comes to music streaming, we usually tend to gravitate towards Spotify. However, there has always been an annoying library limit that Spotify had, which ticked users off.
For the unknowing, Spotify had a library limit of 10,000 songs that can be saved at any given time. However, those days are finally over.
Spotify users can now save as many songs as they want in their “You Music” section. There will be no limits on the size of the library. It’s finally time to bid adieu to the “All Filled Up” pop-up.
Spotify has around 50 million songs for users to stream, which is quite an impressive number. However, the library limit of 10,000 songs that users could save to their “Your Music” sections used to be a bone of contention when it came to ease of access.
Adding songs to Spotify Library is done using the “like” button beside a song name. The function applies to both individual songs and entire albums.
Although most people usually don’t go over a few thousand songs, there are many who have hit the limit, and the result is obviously frustrating, to say the least. More frustrating, maybe, is the fact that, to add more songs, you have to delete others in the list.
The update was, thus, highly requested as well by Spotify users. Apparently, over 12,500 votes were cast for the feature over the past six years in Spotify’s Community ideas Exchange. The company had, however, resisted the change, commenting in 2017, “At the moment we don’t have plans to extend the Your Music limit. The reason is because less than 1% of users reach it.” Although that does make sense, the company had to finally make changes to the library limit.
However, it is to note that this change won’t hamper the other facets of the service. Notably, individual playlists are still limited to 10,000 songs. In addition to this, users can only download 10,000 songs on each of their five devices for offline listening.
The change applies to all of Spotify’s apps as well.
The library limit change is still on the way to roll out to all users. So, if you’re someone who has reached the limit, it’s probably time to check if the pop-up is coming up.
Spotify has been quick to make various changes over the past few years to improve its services. A few weeks ago, it introduced the Group Sessions feature for parties, when that finally becomes a thing again.
