[Android][Other] Improve the Spotify icon for rounded icons

Status: Not Right Now

Hello! The android Spotify icon recently got updated with a black border. For anyone with a dark or black wallpaper, the icon now appears to be smaller than all the other icons on the phone because the black blends in the the backdrops, making it look really off-putting and out of place.

 

Looked a lot nicer when the logo took up the whole space! Not sure if iPhone users would have the same issue, but it would make sense they do.

 

HopwHopef this can be easily adjusted!

Even without a dark background it now looks odd compared to other icons. Please put it back as it was.

For once was quite happy with my Android Spotify app (having switched from iOS not so long ago) and now have this "beautiful" icon. Please bring the previous icon back!

Agreed. I  wanted to know what was wrong with the icon so I searched the internet and found this post.

It's really ugly, both with a dark a non-dark wallpaper! It's bad and nonsensical design. Screenshot_20190425_121956_com.huawei.android.launcher.jpg

I agree. This new icon ruins my home screen. Please give us the old icon back !! I have no idea what could be wrong with it.

What genius came up with this idea?

It looks absolutely terrible. Who approved of this ugly black border???

I'd like to have this changed on behalf of the community, although it doesn't bother me since I just change the icon myself lolz

Hope to see the old icon coming back soon. The new one is too small compared to the others and it looks ugly with dark and white background

Yes, this was ill advised. Spotify now looks like it has a black eye in folders. I'm not sure what the goal was here but it doesn't gel with the rest of the UI or "Marketing 101" to have an artificially tiny logo sat against the likes of Apple Music and YouTube Premium on a potential customer's device.

 

Please reverse this, and since I'm curious - explain what the aim was?
