[All Platforms] Visualizer

Status: Case Closed

I think it would be awesome it spotify had a visualizer that synced up with the music.  It is a feature I use in iTunes when I have company over and I believe Spotify would benefit from having one.

Thanks to everyone for their contribution to this thread. We really appreciate it. In the interest of full disclosure, we’d like to share with you the status of this request.


After serious consideration, we’ve decided not to introduce a visualizer for the desktop app. As a result, we’ve marked this idea as Case Closed.


While we know this is a popular request, we don’t feel the majority of listeners would benefit from the addition of a visualizer at this time.


Thanks for understanding, and please keep those ideas and requests coming! Together we can make Spotify the best it can be.


I believe you may want to pop this in the Spotify idea's page - This page is for feature requests and ideas for this community 🙂


I liked it when you have a music visualization for the music that you are currently listening to, artistic or music beat or just use Itunes as an example of what I am talking about. What do yo think?


I would love for spotify to have a visuliser, i find my self putting iTunes visuliser on and listening to musc on spotify.


Later Spotify Apps will support audio track data according to a developer at Spotify, if everything holds at the legal side, it will probably open up for visualizers.


How about visualization effects within the player i.e windows media player, winamp


Something like Milkdrop would be really cool


Please add visualizers for the desktop version of spotify. It will make listening to music more enjoyable instead of looking at a list of songs 


That's grea tot hear krikelin, have you got a link to where they mention that?


I loved the classic Milkdrop visualiser for WinAmp, I think it's since been open-sourced so that'd be great to see in Spotify. Any good visualisers would be great to have though, defintiely the main missing feature for me!


Preferably Milkdrop, but basically any trippy visualizer will do.
