Can't remove a playlist cover?

Solved!

Can't remove a playlist cover?

I'm in the US, and I have Spotify premium.

 

I'm trying to edit my playlist covers from one of my public playlists from my MacBook air, and I decided I didn't like one of the covers I chose and wanted to go back to the original four-album cover display, but there does not seem to be an option to remove the playlist cover. It only tells me I can replace it with something else. Am I missing something or is it not possible to return to the original four album covers after you've already changed it?

I actually figured it out, it gave me the option to remove the photo after 24 hours.

Thanks!

Hey there @raincake,

Could you take a full screenshot of your Spotify app at all? Spotify are currently running multiple tests and it can help me quickly identify whether that could be cause this! 🙂

 

Look forward to hearing from you,

Ace, if you need anything let us know!
Keep well.

hi, i have the same issue how did you fix this??

Hi there @gc7dw3h68hacyiw,

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community and welcome!

 

You should be able to remove the cover by clicking on the playlist image > 3-dot menu > Remove photo. If that option isn't appearing, try logging out, restarting your device, and logging back in.

 

If the issue persists, could you try doing so from a different device to see how it goes?

 

Keep us posted. We'll be on the lookout.

Hey there @kathrynragbir,

 

Thanks for the post!

 

You can always try to remove the Cover image from the web player

 

On the Desktop app it might take some time after you apply the change for it to be synced with the servers and become visible.

 

Let us know how it goes.

Hey @kathrynragbir,


Thanks for the reply.

 

I assumed you're using a computer since that's the OP issue.

 

You can try to run a clean reinstall of the app, exactly as described here.

 

Also, try connecting to another network and see if the artwork updates.

 

Keep us posted on how you get on.

Hey there @kathrynragbir,


Thanks for the reply.

 

Did you also try connecting to another network and changing the image?

 

Cheers.

Hey @kathrynragbir,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

Can you upload a screenshot of how the Edit Playlist menu looks on your end, as well as your Spotify app version and device + OS version?

 

Cheers.

Hi there @kathrynragbir

 

Thanks for the screenshots you've sent. 

 

Just to make sure, is the image you're showing on the screenshot the one you've chosen or the default one? 

 

Also, could you send us the link of the playlist so we can take a closer look? 

 

Keep us posted.

i want to change all my playlist photos to the default one. on my personal playlists they show to me as the defaults which i want but when viewing from my profile they show as the previous the images (the white and black). just for clarification the “😝” was created last night so i’m not talking about that playlist but all other my other ones i want the default compared to the previous image.

here’s a photo to show you what i mean by the difference.

Hi @kathrynragbir,

 

Thanks for the info you've sent. 

 

If you have been trying to make those changes multiple times, we'd recommend not editing them for 48 hours in order for all previous changes to properly sync up with our servers.

 

If the issue persists after that, we suggest that you try again on a different device to check if the issue is device-related. 

 

Keep us in the loop.
