[Desktop][Playlists] Let us change our playlist's accent color

Let us choose an accent color for our playlists, and not from a preset color palette chosen by the app, but with any color we can think of. This would be for aesthetic purposes only, yet I think that many users wish they could have that option. (At least let us use that option on the desktop and let the color show on the phone, tv, desktop, etc.)

 

The problem is that when you add a custom thumbnail to your playlist, Spotify sets an automatic accent color to it. Sometimes you can get lucky and have it match your thumbnail, sometimes it just looks dull. Also, it always picks a different color for the phone and desktop apps. So it would be pretty nice if you just let us do that job instead of the AI. We would have a consistent color for all apps and we would all enjoy more aesthetic playlists! Thanks<3

This idea is amazing. It would really help with the aesthetics of a playlist.

To be honest, Spotify is really behind the times on being customizable and user friendly. It feels like the company wants to be a rigid as possible to the point of even refusing to let us choose whether to update or not. Giving users, especially paying users, more control over playlist aesthetics, start menu, the ability to hide songs we don't like on playlists and albums, being able to sort/discover music by genre, etc would GREATLY improve the customer experience.

I love making my own covers, so being able to pick the accent colour would be a great plus.

I think it is a good idea, but they are so many others with more relevance than this one, like knowing who is following your playlists. Spotify pls do something coherent
