I'm seeing this on windows desktop app as well. It's almost unusable at this point because if I make the album art smaller to give more breathing room it also provides less width and I can no longer read my playlist names.
At this point the only workable solution I can find is to minizmie the album art so it is on the bottom bar with the controls. This somewhat defeats the purpose for me though since I would rather be able to see the album art in a larger picture.
I have attached a screenshot showing this in practice as well.
OK, it's been four months. It seems like Spotify considers this a "feature" which is meant to stay.
So I took matters into my own hands and found a solution, which I'd like to share. For the fix you unfortunately need to install a tool called Spicetify-CLI, which involves using the command line. Nevertheless, if someone is interested I can post a small guide here.
While I was at it, I also removed the width restriction for the left sidebar. That means you can now make the album cover really large and have some nice kind of split view, with the album cover on left and the current playlist on the right 🤘
Actually can't believe the audacity of your supposed fix, "turn it off and back on again" team well trained well i see. I believe there is always a reason to get upset when a monopolistic company implements features to the detriment of its users, clearly i'm not the only one with this issue.
At present day: the sidebar is about halfway between old and the new stupid update version in my view, at least i can see a 5 or 6 playlists in a row, and it's somewhat a compromise on the dimensions, and i no longer have to scroll and look like i'm viewing my playlists individually like i'm looking at them on a rotating dial. though to reiterate the point this really isn't necessary, i mean surely a company that by it's own admission nowadays "doesn't really make any money anymore" should focus less on *insert whatever expletive offends you most here* - ing around with terrible updates, and more focused on their business model, which should prioritise meeting consumption use for your PAYING CUSTOMERBASE.
However MY issue was really at heart just with artwork viewing size... fortunately for you, i couldn't actually be bothered to migrate my playlists at the time, but after 6 months or so my personal issue was fixed when you implemented the ability for me to zoom in, so now i can do this. (pictured below) now all you gotta do now is implement allowing users to remove/block followers. good day. . > can you believe that, "have you tried restarting", restarting and updating was the reason this problem occured loool like wth hahahahaaa oh dear.
