Loss of Offline Listening in Plus


Like many, I left Pandora a few years ago in search of something better. I was tired of listening to the same old things, the price just to remove ads, and those limited skips. I finally found Slacker, 3.99 a month for Plus subscription, featuring unlimited skips, no ads, and the BEST thing was offline listening for work travel or when reception was poor. It wasn’t uncommon to have minor issues with the app, but those were mostly just mildly annoying and often times addressed in the next update. Today I go to listen to my offline playlist as usual and was given a notification that I would have to upgrade to a Premium subscription to enjoy offline listening. What?? I did a bit of digging and realized that the Plus subscription has removed offline listening from its list of perks. Really?? It’s worse that I wasn’t even given a warning or a quick email/notification. They just changed it. $4 a month was the perfect sweet spot for what I got, but I don’t think it’s worth $10 per month. I find myself a bit distrustful of the way they went about it. I wouldn’t have been terribly upset if they increased their rate $1-2 per month with notice but to jump $6 a month? No way. Now I get to start doing some research again into switching music apps.

Customer service was responsive. I was double charged for a silver and pro membership for 4 months, and only received my most recent month’s pay via a chargeback. I would like to blame Slacker, however I blame myself for not staying up on my financial statements and being as responsive as the company was.

After addressing the only elephant in the room between slacker and myself, it’s been nothing but sweet goodness and groovy vibes. I’ve taken music from your platform with me around the world from Africa to South America, and around Europe with your offline downloads. The memories of listening to those songs in certain places will be with me for life.

My advice after all these years? Bring back the classic tuning platform from your older versions, simplify the method one can organize songs within a playlist (especially offline), and use your potential to go international, or even rock around the globe!

offline listening $4 —> $10... sub —> no sub


Big joke to put a music service up there with the higher tiers of video streaming provider. I wholly like the radio content delivery shtick. A great thing i enjoyed was to load up an older iPod, take it out with it to exercise or knock around with. Didn’t need WiFi or a SIM card, just played what was downloaded. Serving as a Walkman of old.

Now, they expect you to either put the wear on my phone (and risk losing coverage if out on trails, or fork over an additional amount 1.5x the cost of the original package. I was introduced with Milk Music (which had a much superior dial channel selector) but I supported Slacker after they shut down the value added content they offered with Samsung phones.

They can come back to $4 and count me a sub. Or at the least humor the process and come up with a decent lyrics display (that properly renders horizontally) or something so we’re not just getting gypped.
