Hello everyone,

We just release Sprint 196. It includes:

  • Date ranges for artist top tracks
    Top tracks on an artist page now default to the last 7 days. You can also select 30 days, 90 days, 365 days, and all time ranges.
  • More detailed top listeners
    You can now see a full page of top listeners, as well as their top track for an artist
  • Personal chart sharing
    When sharing a chart from your profile or library to Twitter/Facebook/Other, we'll include a montage image of your top items



For those that missed it, we also released notifications on Tuesday.

Cheers,
Team Last.fm

I just visited the mobile site, and there's a new play button for Amazon Music.

Sorry, I can't find a new play button. I suppose, you're not talking about the video play button, which was already there since ... a long time. Look here:

The button, when I saw it, was next to the "Buy This Track" option from Amazon.

Interesting, 2 or 3 weeks ago I saw this play button too. Only for one or two refreshings of the site, then the button disappeared. Perhaps to get enlightened by Jammus about this artifact isn't too much expected. :-)

So ... when are we getting this ... It's been months

More corrections on album and track names (not currently available)

There are now more corrections on album and track names, from albums and tracks that are the same as others. For instance, from "release name (LP)" to "release name", or from "track name (Edit)" to "track name".

We already turned into this long time ago. Honestly, speaking of the dead, where the undertaker to collect them?

just wanted to say thanks this time (a little late), date ranges for artists top tracks and personal chart sharing are very good improvements (expecially the second one, which is more customizable than before)

I hope *real* updates and return of old features continue, without long pauses...
(i'm still waiting for SEVERAL events section fixes: create venues, edit venues, bring back venues events' list page, delete artist from events, merge events, flag events for fixes, see WHO attends events, see your added events, see your followings' events, etc...)

Here's hoping for a great Christmas present. The last few updates were better than the year before combined.

Scrobbling for me at the moment. Maybe just a temporary hiccough?

Liking the top listeners expansion.  
Shouldn't it be possible now to have top listeners on track pages too? 
Sometimes when I get crazy about a track, I wonder what other people listen to that binge the same track.

if anyone remembers how small those updates were if you want to call them that. they're going on holiday and I'd doubt they'll be doing anything major before.

Hello music lovers!
I hope, everybody is feeling fine in the middle of the week. What I like to ask: Is the thread
"Users who have MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS FAKES, are causing mayhem in the images of artists, STOP THEM!" still in the maintenance and will it be accessable again, or has it been lost? Does anybody knows?

I would like this addressed, too! It's really annoying to see this happening around the site.

I think this is a nice stats page/feature, but I agree the placement is unnecessary on our profile pages - particularly after we've already looked at it. I suppose the good thing is I'm assuming this isn't a permanent banner and will probably disappear some time in January 2017.

Having said that, as much as I like the individual stats breakdown, I do feel like there are plenty of other things, which we have all been banging on about since this site went live, that could and should have taken priority over doing something like this.

^^ could this banner be any bigger? could it be uglier? could it look more like an advert and less like a professional site graphic? could last.fm find more things to stick on top of recently played tracks? 
ugliness aside, thank you for this. i sorely missed those stats last year.

I like this. It's interesting to see so many of my stats displayed with these neat little graphics. I wish the banner wasn't so big though. I assume it's on our profile pages (rather than the home page) so we can look at stats for other users too.

I'm a little sad that I'm only 4th on the discovery leaderboard simply because the top 3 people created their accounts this year, so everything they listened to was counted as a "discovery".

Are there any privacy options for this page? I'd like to only make it accessible to people I follow.

Why? Who are you embarrassed for people to find out you listen to, James? ;)

Haha, it's not that. Katy Perry is 34th on my charts with 447 plays. I'm fine with that. It's mainly the fact that I've listened to 154 DAYS of music... Oh boy.  :)

If it makes you feel any better, someone I follow on Last FM has (allegedly) listened to 296 days!!

I clearly don't listen enough as I didn't quite manage to break triple figures - a meagre 98 days, lol

Sidebar: still can't see why on earth someone would see the point or purpose in setting up a Last FM page for a jukebox account.

Also, there's nothing wrong with Katy Perry - the Teenage Dream album is A+ ;-D

I guess it's just interesting, and might be useful from a business standpoint to see how many people are using your products. I remember reading this article written back in 2013 saying that people could log into their Last.fm account from the jukebox - making it easy to select their favourite songs to play. 

You could argue that Last.fm is a place to store listening data, and people are listening to the music when they pay to have it played at a jukebox. I think the main issue is that it's all logged onto a single profile.

You'd think there'd be an internal record of that, though, in the actual jukebox, rather than needing to use an external source like Last FM.

I agree the issue is that it's stored on to a single profile, as it's effectively an amalgamation of countless users' tastes and therefore makes it entirely meaningless.

You guys... December isn't over yet, our stats will change till January, and I can already tell that "Your year in music" isn't updating at all, which makes it kind of pointless, no? Unless it will start updating at some point, but it definitely hasn't been taking any of my recent scrobbles into consideration for the last 30 minutes or so. 
It would make more sense if this thing appeared on January 1st.

It would also be great if you could actually tell us who these new followers are, since we never got any kind of notifications. And this doesn't bother me personally, since I have a small number of people on my list, so I can easily keep the track, but I believe that people with 100+ followers have a problem with figuring out who their new followers are.

I should imagine it'll wait until December is over before updating.
