As of 1/8/2018 the spotify widget is currently on a 1x4 size. Many newer phones have the ability to hold more icon columns (more than 4) therefore the spotify player looks poorly made and ill fitting.
I know that google play, and samsung play provide the ability to resize the widget to match the width/# of icon columns you have on your screen.
Can it be possible to allow the widget to be resizeable like other music playing competitor apps?
It feels weird that spotify doesn't take this idea into account. It has been submitted many times on the forum:
I assume it isn't that much work to do compared to some of the other ideas I have seen you guys implement. Please look into this, as there are definitely people complaining about this everywhere.

Your idea was submitted a while ago and unfortunately didn't receive the amount of kudos needed to stay active in the ideas board (100 Kudos per year).
In order to keep the Ideas Exchange clearer I'll close this idea for now, but this doesn't mean Spotify rejected this idea.
If you think this is an idea which needs to be implemented, you're welcome to post it in a slightly different form 🙂
Have a nice day!
