Vibe will be deprecated January 2021
Vibe will be going away in January.
Let me start by saying that removing functionality is always more difficult than adding new functionality; taking something away that people used is never easy, and is not something I take lightly.
Vibe was introduced in February 2020, and has never really been out of beta.
There are a few reasons why I did make this decision, the main reason being performance. As some of you have noticed over the past month, synchronising with Vibe turned on was not exactly quick - on the contrary, when I tested it with my, comparatively modest library of 20 000 songs, it took more than a week. Synchronising has never been really quick, but the decrease in performance when using Vibe, compared to a regular sync, has become worse over the past couple of months. I have tried to improve the performance, and whilst it did improve slightly, it was still too slow.
The second reason is that the amount of people that have used Vibe in the last week has been ~5. That is not enough to warrant the effort it takes to keep it running.
The third reason ties in with the second reason, and that is that the results from Vibe never got to the level where I wanted it to be.
What will happen now?
Vibe has been removed from the website and page. If you still have Vibe enabled, it will keep working for now. If you do not have Vibe enabled, or disable Vibe, then it will no longer show up in the menu or in the settings.
Starting from January, Vibe will be fully going away for everyone.
My apologies to those who still used Vibe.
