[All Platforms][Playlists] bring Canvas to other platforms (Desktop, Tablet, TV, consoles)

I, for one, actually like the Canvasing ideas on songs. To be honest, I wish there was more as I have my phone on a charging dock on my desk next to my monitor (audio bluetoothed to my stereo) and I can't help but think that the idea of the canvas should be expanded to tablets and the desktop app. I think its a nice surprise, even if its only a few seconds on a loop for the length of the song.  I'm sure over time you'll add more to iconic songs of the past as you also keep adding them to newly released tracks.

I see there are plenty of other users out there that don't particularly care for the option. That's fine; it's not for everybody. I still think it should be expanded upon. When I'm using airplay at home to listen to music, it always gets my attention when the canvases pop up, but this doesn't happen when I have my iPad on airplay, just iPhone. The canvas seems like a more lively visual compared to just a plain 'Now Playing' screen. Just something to consider.

I agree with this idea. I'm picturing it at a party or get-together where Spotify is playing on a large TV through an Xbox or Roku with the Canvas videos playing.


Excellent idea. Canvas on the TV apps would be awesome! 😀


Any update on this? This feature request has 200 votes, what's the minimum for internal discussion & consideration?

They say 500 votes.

This has a lot of votes! I thought these features were meant to reach 100 votes for review?


Please please please add the canvas feature to tablet and other Android OS versions! This feature is so cool and I would love to see this feature on all of my devices.

Last I knew it was supposed to be about 500ish. Tell your friends! Let make this happen.

lol this has been open for over a year now and only ~250 votes?!?! another year and we'll have our 500?


Comment for boosting, some people don't understand how much this adds to user experience for listening to spotify
