[Music] Gif animated Album Covers

How about allowing artists to upload a small .gif file for their artwork? Something to help them stand out? I know I would use this feature!

It looks like this is a thing now. I just can't figure out how to upload animated artwork for my artist. Great idea, by the way.

How the F do i stop videos from playing!?!?  I signed up for spotify to LISTEN to music not watch videos!!!  

 

2 Years later and no changes? In the past, Spotify still responded to users' concerns. I look for a new music service. I must puke when I have to look over 3 minutes on an animated gif.

Animated ads and animated playlist and album covers are HORRIBLE....

I don't want things flashing around on my screen - I want to listen to music.. I currently have to change views or minimize Spotify when I'm in a view where animation pops up. We should be able to disable all type of animation in Spotify.. it's not needed, and it's very annoying.
