Here’s some good news for all of the Spotify song and album hoarders out there. The 10,000-item limit the company has historically placed on its library feature is now a thing of the past.
As of Tuesday, the streaming service is rolling out a change globally that will make its users’ libraries unlimited.
Until now, those who have hit the 10,000-item limit have been greeted with the dreaded message: “Epic collection my friend. There’s no more room in Your Library. To save more, you’ll need to remove some songs or albums.”
While the new limitless library means that songs and albums can be according to your preferences, playlists are still saddled with a 10,000-song limit.
So if you were in the habit of turning your whole library into a shared playlist, you’re going to have to get more creative.
The move to an unlimited library has been one of the company’s most requested features. According to the community blog post announcing the change, with over 12,500 votes since 2014.
It may be the latest in a string of changes designed to lure new customers to the service as it escalates its war with other streaming giants like Apple Music and Amazon Music.
Earlier this month, Spotify made headlines for its acquisition of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast. It will become available exclusively on Spotify, effectively killing its status as a podcast.
