My Question or Issue

From the attached photos - the design of the track whenever you share it to an Instagram story has changed, I'm unsure if it's a feature update?  Comparing it to my friend's Instagram story (other screenshot) the background was like the one I had before, gradient bg and text is intact. This one now, text became larger, a square above the album cover, and the Spotify logo beneath. i want the old one back 😞

The old design was much better. This new format has huge letters, the song title and name of the artists appear incomplete and the album cover completely lose the highlight. =/

Hey there @thepinkflamingo,


Thank you for your post here in the Community. 

 

At Spotify, we’re often testing and launching improvements and new features.

This means you might see something on the app your friend doesn’t, or you could get a new feature to try out temporarily.

 

Instagram also do their own A/B tests so some Android users see something different from this feature. There is nothing Spotify can do about this as it's an Instagram feature.

 

We hope this information was helpful. 

 

Take care!
