Fullscreen feature removed

Fullscreen feature removed


So I noticed recently that the album art fullscreen feature was removed on the desktop app. I spoke to a rep and they told me the feature had been removed from the app. Really hoping they bring this back because I used this a lot, it was one of my favorite features about the desktop app and it seems strange to remove it.

Hey @undeadchase,


Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community.


Spotify is often testing and this means you might see something different on the app, or get different features to try only temporarily. It'd be great for you to check this Spotify Answer for more info about test features.


Regarding this, there's a Community Idea suggesting the option to allow switching between the previous and the current look of your Desktop app. You can take a look at it here if you'd like to know more. Make sure to add your +VOTE as well as subscribe to stay up-to-date with all the related developments.


Hope you'll find this helpful. Have a nice day!

I just received this update, and I found this thread to also find an answer for why the fullscreen feature was removed. I am also a user who used it, and I am quite sad to see it go. I'm on version
Please bring back fullscreen.

Yes, could you please return this option? I checked my settings but there is no option to bring it back. Why did you implement this?
