Okay, I said it. I hate the update that included Spotify.
Before Spotify: I say "Play the Rolling Stones" and I get something at least Stones-adjacent without having to push buttons on the screen. It worked the way a voice command should work.
After Spotify: I say "Play the Rolling Stones" and I get to tap the screen multiple times before anything plays. Sure, I get a songs that actually _are_ the Stones instead of just close, but I only get about 3 songs before I get the spinning wheel of Spotify song-not-loading death. Normally I'd blame the connection for this, but it happens with a strong LTE connection and even on WiFi in my garage. I vaguely remember this happening with the Spotify app on my phone a few years back and it's why I quit Spotify back then.
I wouldn't be so irritated with Spotify if Tesla's UI was sane. And I wouldn't be so irritated with the UI if the songs kept playing for more than 10 minutes. But the combination is a very un-Teslalike experience.
