Odd icon design, please change to the previous one.

Not a great look guys, change it back please!

Yeah, this genuinely ruined my night. It's now the worst-designed icon on my phone, and there's no place for me to put it that doesn't look awful. RIP all people using black backgrounds. Just make it green! It's not that hard to make a good app icon...Screenshot_20190423-235210.png

Exactly my thoughts, came here to see if I was the only one.

Please change it back. There was nothing wrong with the other one.

looks terrible on black background. one shrimpy spotify icon next to all the other full size icons. bad design decision 😞

Really needs to be changed. Looks so awkward with dark or black wallpapers because the black blends in and makes the icon look smaller than all others on the phone. Sticks out like a sore thumb.

This is more Android's fault than Spotify. The newer versions of Android require apps to use "adaptive icons" that end up looking terrible for any icon that has a logo that can't be cropped to different shapes(ex: Spotify's logo is a circle that they probably don't want being a square, teardrop, or some other shape). They could have picked a better color than black, though.

It looks horrible with my not dark background and the way all other icons and folders around it look.
