[All Platforms][Playlists] Upload GIFs as Playlist Covers

I think it would be really great if Spotify could allow GIFs to be uploaded as Spotify Playlist Covers - it would add a nice touch of personality to each playlist and make it pop even more! I really like the animated covers of some Spotify Playlists and it would be really cool if we could do something similar with our playlists


This idea has been submitted a few times before but I genuinely love the idea and think it deserves another shot at voting and I hope it gets enough votes this time! 🙂

Hey everyone,


It seems that this idea ended up in the wrong board accidentally, so we're bringing it back.


We're keeping the previous Not Right Now status, as we don't have any immediate plans to implement this. As soon as we have any new information to share, rest assured we'll check back in here.


Take care.

Status changed to: Closed - Not Enough Votes

Thank you for bringing your feedback to the Spotify Community!

Your suggestion didn’t quite reach 180 votes in 6 months. Users can still vote on this idea - if it gets enough votes, Spotify will still check it out and post a status update. You can read more about the idea process here.


it should be an option to make short videos/ animation graphics as playlist covers just like artists do with their music!!!! this would be so cool and i feel like it’d be so easy to do, and it just makes the platform so much more visually appealing🙏🏽


I know a lot of people who would love this option (including me) and I know you would love it to.

The idea is basically, instead of the option of choosing only jpeg. files, we could have an option to choose gif. files too. This would make our playlist look more attractive and lively. These animated pictures would definitely catch others eyes and you could also admire these moving pictures while vibing to your favorite songs. 😝

Status changed to: Case Closed

Hey! Thanks for coming to the Spotify Idea Exchange.
We've been keeping an eye on this submission for an extended period of time, and it doesn't seem this will reach the votes necessary to put it forward for prioritization.
As such, we're marking this case as closed. This includes any similar suggestions that are received.

If we do have any new information to share, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status.

More information about it can be found here.


i think the votes thing is kinda dumb cause there is a lot of people who want this feature that don’t know about this forum, and it would be an optional feature so anyone who doesn’t like it doesn’t have to use it.




Booo, come on Spotify this is a slam dunk easy feature to implement and adds a lot of personality to playlists.


How many likes are required for it to be a prioritization. I don’t think anyone would be opposed to this idea anyways??


I think that this would be amazing!! It's just that not enough people know about it/know about the forum website. Just a lack of knowledge. 😕


This would be an awesome feature, would make playlist customization so much more interesting! Sad that this didn't get enough attention... 😞
