[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.

700 votes and counting, and still nothing from Spotify 3 years on... I've seen independent free apps address customer issues faster. By the time Spotify releases this feature, Musk will be beaming music to our brains. 🤦🏾‍♂️

We're closing in on May 2024 and Spotify is still gatekeeping canvas to certain countries only. The rest of the world also wants the pretty videos!

Shame on you Spotify (if you even read this).

All hope is lost.

They’d rather increase monthly subscription costs and not add any new
features 😉
