[All Platforms] Light Mode option

Hi,

 

The new white text on black design physically hurts my eyes and gives very bad ghosting (i.e. persistent image like those in optical illusions that make you stare at particular color combinations and then look away). I know I'm not the only one with this issue because I've researched it in the past. Without an option to switch back to the old design (White background/black text), I'll need to delete my Spotify account and find another service. Please add an option to switch between the two (because I know many prefer black backgrounds). Myself and a host of others, however, cannot use these color combinations. Please let me know if there is a work-around; it would be much appreciated. It's basically unusable to me in it's current state.

Hey folks,

 

This idea has been moved to a wrong place in the forum but is now back in its place.

 

We're keeping the status of Not Right Now as we still don't have any immediate plans to implement this, however, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status if we have any news to share.

 

Thanks!

Dark theme on the desktop puts strain on the eyes. 
It is difficult to read white text on black background. 

At least change black background to a grey one. 
This is a fundamental change and please make it as a priority.

Light theme solution for iPhone.

 

Smart Invert in iOS

1. Open settings.

2. Search for Per-App Settings and add Spotify to the list.

3. Select Spotify from the list and look for Smart Invert option and turn it on. (You don't want to turn it on for entire iOS).

4. Restart Spotify app. 

 

For desktop use Spicetifyhttps://spicetify.app/

Like many here, have a very hard time reading white text on this black background. very stressful to focus. I like to read the snips on the music bands but just can't.  Like with many modern apps, a light theme option would be great.

Android has a similar feature. Pull down from top and choose "invert colors".

I'm a new premium Spotify user and was surprised there's no light mode. Please give us option to switch theme

I don't want to clean the display every time I launch Spotify.

Serious Spotify !!
Almost 10 years old this tread and you are stubbornly refuse to implement this simply feature.
I have not suffered earlier, but as more and more apps and webpages go for the dark team, than it s  impossibly to see where one window is when placed on top of an other dark team app/page.

 

If you really think you are right, than pull a poll, invite spotify users from/inside the app to vote.
* I only wish for Dark Team, like today.
* I only wish for light Team, as for who remember when any longer...
* I wish the option to switch between dark and light mode.
* I don't care about the color mode.

That is if you wish for some real feedback from many of your customers.
But perhaps this is one of those where you just wont accept that you could been wrong from the beginning.
Don't be so Swedish. Be more like the Finnish and admit (if the poll prove that) that you where wrong and fix it asp.
