One of my biggest draw for Spotify is that it is easy to search for artists and songs using just that search bar. For example, previously I had listened to “Long Long Time” by Linda Ronstadt. Spotify knows that this is a song I am interested in. When I search for Linda Ronstadt again, it is the first song on the list I am looking to listen to. Whereas in Roon, I need to either look for the album or through the list of her songs to find it again.
Also, people make typos when typing all the time. And when I type in ‘Londa R’ (misspelled), Spotify knows to suggest Linda Ronstadt for me. Which is awesome. In Roon, it comes up as an empty search. I am trying to get to my music as quickly as possible.
Finally, when looking for an artist’s song, I search for an artist. Too much space is taken for photos of the artists. I get it, it’s pretty. Great, but at the end of the day, I want to get to my songs. Can we have a setting to condense the list of songs into a table so we can quickly find the song? When we click on ‘More’ under the ‘Popular’ section, we see a list of songs but screen real estate is used so inefficiently. I have a 16inch screen and I see 4 songs until I scroll. Like, why? I want to see as many options as possible and the options based my my previous selections.
