Up till now, the Swedish music streaming large used to point out an error that reads “Epic collection, friend. There’s no more room in Your Library. To save more, you’ll need to remove some songs or albums.”, as soon as the consumer hits the aforesaid restrict.
With that mentioned, it’s value noting that this transformation doesn’t affect the offline listening expertise. Spotify customers will nonetheless be restricted to 10,000 tune downloads on 5 completely different units. Also, the adjustments usually are not relevant to playlists as effectively. The most restrict for playlists stays to be 10,000 tracks.
To know the way we bought right here, we can have to check out a little bit of historical past involving the function’s evolution. Back in 2014, the function request to extend the tune restrict began to achieve traction and amassed over 12,500 votes.
The firm responded with an announcement as follows: “We’ve recently reviewed this internally and 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. The current limit ensures a great experience for 99% of users instead of an “OK” expertise for 100%.”
This sounds cheap contemplating the truth that the flexibility to have 10,000 songs within the library is an honest restrict. To put that in perspective, take into account a tune’s common size to be 4 minutes and multiply it with the restrict. We get 40,000 minutes, which interprets to virtually a month. In different phrases, it will take virtually a month to truly “listen” to a complete library consisting of 10,000 songs as soon as.
However, some Spotify customers apparently needed the choice to pile up songs to their library, which in flip made Spotify take away the restrict now. In case you’re nonetheless seeing the error, Spotify guarantees that each one customers will get the brand new expertise quickly, which ought to hopefully occur within the coming weeks.
