[Desktop][Other] Redesign/Re-engineer the Spotify app for Windows

The desktop app for Spotify on Windows is extremely slow and doesn't offer many new features and details from the mobile app.

 

  • It would be nice if the app was made Fully resizable, being able to adapt to diverse windows sizes and still present the most important info, like you see in many of Microsoft's apps and even third parties.
  • Windows 10 has a slew of apps that open in seconds, and Spotify definetly isn't one of them, even having the random problem of not opening at all, making you reset the computer to open it.
  • The desktop design is still the same even after three years, even though the mobile app, and even the web player have gone through a few design changes. Make it more fluid, less grid-like and square-ey, like it was done in the mobile app and web player, and also integrate features like Canvas and Genius Lyrics, that have been present on mobile for some time.

Overall, it feels like the desktop app has been forgotten by the team, and I would like if a bit of cleaning up and optimizing was done to it.
