My Question or Issue

My home screen layout has changed completely. It is now only showing one album or podcast per category, and it doesn't show recently played at the top. Is there any way to switch it back? I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, as well as installing previous versions but nothing has worked. I also emailed customer service but they could not fix it.

I have the same stupid problem, woke up, opened Spotify and was like what the actual f***?! It makes no sense why they would think this was a good idea! I really hope this is just temporary and that we'll have the old UI back next week, cause this really sucks! 

Hi, the exact same has happened to me. The home page is different and i dont have the scroll across option anymore. did you end up fixing this?


Hi @TerryKayne


Thanks for getting in touch about this.


We’re always testing possible improvements and new features, so you might see something on the app that other users don't, or get a brand-new feature for only a temporary period.


You can obtain more info about this in the link @MattSuda sent previously.


We really value your feedback as it helps inform our decisions going forward, and we'll be sure to pass this on to the right folks here at Spotify.

The same problem appeared on my phone just a few days ago. The answer you are referring to, only leads me back to the article that I started out with when searching for an answer full stop the article let me here, so now I'm full circle but no closer to finding out how to solve the issue. Seeing as it has been a few weeks since your initial reply, I was wondering if you know anything more about how to solve this problem now?

Hi Eni

Unfortunately I now have this issue on a Galaxy Note 9 with version The link posted does not address how to correct the issue. This has made the home page unusable. How can this be corrected?


Thank you

Hey @ewg9312312 


Thanks for coming to the Spotify Community to post your feedback.


I do not have this UI in my mobile app so it appears that this is a test.
