[Desktop] Isn't it time to implement a desktop visualiser?

I have used a big screen for years now, right now a 4K 50" with Ambilight which is great for a party feeling when I want that.
I use Spotify daily and I have tested several third party apps but I really don't like any of them.
Especially since I have to tab back and forth to change songs, see what is playing or what time a certain part of a song is, add songs, delete songs, see what artist is playing, and much more. 

 

I have been a faithful premium subscriber for about 10 years now and this is the one thing I really would like to ask for in return.

The new desktop update looks amazing on a big screen and the last thing to complete it would really be a built in visualiser. 

Please, please, PLEASE Spotify. Add this feature and make me and so many more fans happy. It would really change the experience for the better.

Hey @siccus 

 

A similar idea has also been suggested many times before, and only one thread can exist per Idea. Spotify Staff has already answered this request, which can be read here:

Any update on the matter should be posted there.

As my post was flagged as spam when I tried to link to a Reddit post on the r/spotify where I attempt(successfully) to gather users who share this wish of mine, I tried to link it in comments. Sadly, the comment too was flagged as spam. 

So the only thing I can do is give you the title of the post and have people look it up on their own, so sorry for the inconvenience for anyone trying to show their support. The title of the reddit post is: Let's get together and show Spotify it's worth their time adding a built in Desktop Visualiser

Cheers

Oh please god yes! Also add the lines between songs back, and PLEASE PLEASE make it so that switching to a new album or playlist it keeps your old position insteasd of scrolling to the top when you switch back. It used to be this way but was changed for god only knows what reason.

 

But yes, PLEASE add a visualizer I can't say enough how much we need this!

Why would we want more rubbish UI implementations? When spotify hasn't even implemented basic privacy features like blocking harassing followers or explicit album art from minors.

No.

 

They need to focus on making the desktop UI proper again. Not make frivolous visual effects that can't compete with what winamp had 20 years ago.

I don't think this is too much of a big ask. It can be a feature that is limited at first and updated as time goes on. Especially if Spotify is serious about getting into video, it can be a great initial test to see adoption rates/usage on a mass scale.
