In such a highly customizeable world, where are the themes for spotify? My google chrome is wood theme and my text messaging app is an 19th century journal. Could spotify match? I think so.

Hey folks, we still don't have plans for customizable Spotify skins within the app. Of course if our designers have an update on this I will post here first. We'll continue letting the designers know this is getting kudos and comments in the Idea Exchange. 


Thank you for for feedback everyone.

I am not sure how hard this would be to implement since it might involve entirely recreating the UI but I would really appreciate it!

I think a skinning feature would be rather cool to have in Spotify.

Offer a variety of themes for Spotify other then the default grey theme.


You could even offer more themes as a reward system for being a suscriber.


Such as:


1 Month as a Suscriber = New theme


6 Month = New theme


1 Year = New Theme


And so on..


P.S. I would love a clean white theme. 


Also, now that I think about it, having a reward system for being a suscriber for longer periods of time seems like a good idea. I don't know what the rewards could be other then themes, but I'm sure people could think of things.

3.  Able to have a chat window with community friends.]

4. Finally create a Club on Facebook that we can all add to meet new people.


Hope you take this ideas to consideration, I will continue to support you program.

It would be a great addition to add a skin of the spotify on the desktop, that way you could minimize the full screen, put on a playlist and not have it take up your entire monitor.  I realize you can minimize it to go away, but you have to open it back up if you want to skip a couple of songs.  Otherwise, can't get enough of Spotify.  Both my wife and I have the Premium subscription and we love it.  Keep it up.

I 100% agree with "Different Skin designed to choose from". As a loyal iTunes user, I'm considering making the switch, but I'm finding the transition to an all-black user interface too jarring. I wish there were a lighter gray skin.
