[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
