GrEtcHen Jared, how is Social enabled? Apparently just finding someone isn’t enough — they have to turn Social on (somehow — it’s not spelled out anywhere) so you can friend them.
I’m lost too BC. The fact both of us used it before is not encouraging regarding ease of use, eh? But, I’ve got 30 days to figure it out. 🙂
And…not cancelling my Rdio account (again)! FIXED. 4 months ago

Biker Chick Jared…I am lost on Spotify! Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope. I will poke around a bit and see what I can figure out. 4 months ago
Jared Flores BC… you haven’t enabled Spotify Social yet. 4 months ago
Jared Flores Just deleted my free Swedish account and upgraded to premium. Sound quality is excellent. Dissapointed in how many partial albums I’m finding. 4 months ago
GrEtcHen did you catch the other part? you have to type ALL of that crap into the search box — you have to put qualifiers in, with delimiters, just so it knows you want to find another member and not a song. 4 months ago
Crippling Niles Antisocial?! Ding ding ding! Song cue!
And speaking as an auditor, I completely feel your pain on the whole uppercase/lowercase example below. 🙂 4 months ago
GrEtcHen I was able to resurrect my old “sweeedish” Spotify account. To their huge credit, they have granted me 30 days of Premium for free (once I entered cc info). Very very nice of them.
On the other hand, here is what the help says to find another member (without doing the whole import your FB friends thing):
“If you know their username, type spotify:user:USERNAME in the search box. (Note that the username must be written in lower-case)”
And *I* note the example they give has the username in caps…rofl. This is social? This isn’t social, this is antisocial. 4 months ago
Jason Paul CAW I did listen to it once. I did. But in all seriousness, aside from a blotch on my heavy rotation, the fall out of that experiment is pretty darned cool. 4 months ago
CAW a.k.a. The Aquatic Ape Jason, you big dummy, Redd Foxx was a mensch!! Consider him your guardian angel (even if his face is only a few inches removed from a horse’s a-hole…) and you’ll feel better about the whole thing. Besides, thanks to the residue, the “Sanford & Son, Not Mumford & Sons” revolution continues – “…Wash Your Ass” just surpassed 44,000 listens and I haven’t seen a familiar avie on that listener-roster in weeks! What’s more, it’s featured on 35 playlists (correction: 36 playlists…)! Let’s all celebrate with a communal queueing of the “Two Dozen Roses” skit, shall we? (“Why don’t you just buy a vase?” – oh shit, that’s great stuff…) 4 months ago
GrEtcHen That would work for me Matt, cause I only use one computer, ever.
Unless you’re on the computer with the files, you can’t listen to them? As you may recall, that’s exactly what Lala DID allow you to do…they are still the gold standard, as they asked you to upload those tracks not in their catalog, so you could still listen to them from anywhere.
M, would really like to know, if your collection is on a cloud service, can Spotify recognize it?
(Lacey, Bill may not have been on top of everything, but as far as that feature goes, pretty brilliant and way ahead of the pack…by what, 3 or 4 years? wow.) 4 months ago
tod nelson I’ve been lurking on this thread for most of the day. Excellent input, everyone. I decided to give Spotify a spin–and figured I’d try out the best they have to offer, the Spotify Ultimate for $10 a month. So far I’ve found a *few* albums there that are missing on Rdio (Hot Snakes, Tall Dwarfs, etc). But they are lacking the Drag City catalog AND, as John Fowler mentions below, the Sub Pop catalog. Big bummers. There are no browse features on Spotify, though the similar artists feature is pretty nifty compared to Rdio. The social aspects are nil–I can’t believe Tech Crunch gave Spotify the edge on that. I’ll stick with Rdio for that alone.
