[All Platforms] Add visuals (or upload) for desktop and TV

I think it would be awesome to add a visuals feature, for Desktop and TV players (Roku). Some times I just don't want to see the menu while I'm listening  music, to delve into the full experience of what you want to hear, visuals reenforce it and if you have the chance to customize what you watch while listing to music, it only amplifies the experience, a whole no perspective of audiovisuals. 

With an "on and off " button if the listener wants to use it or not.

Why would we want more rubbish UI implementations? When spotify hasn't even implemented basic privacy features like blocking harassing followers or explicit album art from minors.




They need to focus on making the desktop UI proper again. Not make frivolous visual effects that can't compete with what winamp had 20 years ago.


I don't think this is too much of a big ask. It can be a feature that is limited at first and updated as time goes on. Especially if Spotify is serious about getting into video, it can be a great initial test to see adoption rates/usage on a mass scale.

Yes please! With The Hue Sync, Harmonize, Hyperion and other reactive A/V products and projects it's never been a better time to do this! 


Would really love something other than generic Artist logos when playing music on the TV app. 


I miss the old days of turning on my tunes, and adding in the music visualiser to go with the songs while I work to have some mesmerising images and dancing lines on my monitor to go along with the songs.  I admit I'm an early stage internet user who is trying to recapture some of the simpler pleasures from that time when screensavers and rudimentary music software were considered elite additions to your life.
