Spotify Rolling Out Desktop Update With “Private Listening Mode”.

  • September 29, 2011 8:46 am

It appears Spotify is finally caving to pressure from a growing wave of disgruntled users over the company’s new auto-share-to-Facebook feature. CEO Daniel Ek just tweeted that an update is rolling out that will enable a new “private listening mode” found directly within the Spotify > File menu.

Currently there is an option to turn of the aforementioned feature, though it’s buried in the preferences menu and is labeled with “Get personal recommendations by sending music you play to your Facebook timeline.”

For those of you who were none too pleased with the auto-share feature, is the new private listening mode enough to win you back?
