[Android][Playlists] Option to disable album art on mobile playlists

So basic request, simply one to add the option to toggle visibility of playlist album art on mobile. I don't like it, it clutters up the screen and now I only get to see 7 and a half songs, as opposed to before the update when I could see at least 25 at once.

A toggle in the personal preferences, or even per-album, would be fan-tastic. Cheers!

Hey @Coconutsales,

 

Thanks for bringing your feedback to the Idea Exchange!

 

Do you mind sharing a screenshot to clarify what you're referring to?

 

Also, do you mind specifying which context you were able to see 25 songs in before? A screenshot would also be useful here.

 

Thanks - keep us posted!

Couldn't agree more. And for IOS too please! Between this, the Shuffle Play button just becoming a Play/Pause button, and the Like button requiring an extra tap to access, recent updates have been really frustrating me. 

 

HERE IS A COMPARISON OF OLD AND NEW: While the new look does seem chunkier, admittedly the total number of songs on the screen has only been reduced by a small fraction of a song: https://imgur.com/a/I7Y30p2

 

But two issues remain.

1: I want to see the album names on my playlist! THEY'RE GONE 😞

2: It looks gross; I and many others liked the uniformity much better.

 

Please: just add it back as a toggle in settings; that really cannot be too hard since it was the standard UI for so many years. And everyone is happy!

  1. I agree - i wanna see a lot of songs and currently i only see some songs. Ability to listen and add versatility to your UI should not hinder your brand - Spotify’s aesthetic is solid enough to withstand minor differences between users’ versions of the app.

I don't want to see most of the album artwork and I REALLY DON'T WANT my children to see it.

Please create an option to block album artwork.
