    Thanks for sharing, Michael.

    Why did you guys ditch the ability to view track info in the new version? I understand the focus on the key tasks but this seems pretty core to the experience. As a consumer, I now have to go to web to do things like looking up track lists for mixes. As a creator, the info section is critical to driving engagement with a artist's fan base.

      It's a good question. I'm not going to say too much about the roadmaps for the team given that I'm not at SC anymore, but it was always a much longer term vision for the app. We had a bunch of really good solutions for track info, but it was just in terms engineering priority we had to cut it for launch.

      There is already a really nice approach for integrating Track Info into the player in place, it's just about building it. So wait for great things to come!
