My Question or Issue

This is a new issue I am having - I used to be able to change my playlist cover photo. Out of the blue I am not able to anymore. The pencil icon does not appear when I hover over the current picture. I have re-downloaded Spotify and restarted my computer but it has not helped.

Hi merxperx!


Thanks for posting in the Spotify Community!


It is possible to change the cover pf a playlist only by using the Desktop App. 

If this problem is happening on the Desktop App, it means you are currently part of a test that Spotify is currently running with it's desktop experience. 


Right now, it's not possible to opt-out of these tests however if your not happy with the new experience I'd recommend adding a +VOTE here to show your interest to Spotify to returning back to what you had previously.


Hope this helps.


I have voted. Does this mean I will be switched back from the test?

Or is there anything else I could do?

No, unfortunately I think you have to wait for the end of the test.
