Unfortunately, It does not follow the scaling factor set in the OS.
The workaround doesn't work anymore with the latest betas 😞
I confirm this does not seem to work with the latest beta.

I found that `--force-device-scale-factor=2.2` was best for me. I have Arch Linux and the Cinnamon Desktop on a 2015 Dell XPS 13" (ships with Ubuntu) with the qHD screen. I edited `/usr/share/applications/spotify.desktop` to make it *stick*
Thanks for figuring this out.
also doesn't work for me on Linuxmint rafaela, Spotify client 0.9.17.1.g9b85d436
