I think it would be awesome it spotify had a visualizer that synced up with the music.  It is a feature I use in iTunes when I have company over and I believe Spotify would benefit from having one.

Hey everyone. While we used to have a visualizer beta for you all this feature has been removed. We're reopening this idea for a visualizer with the Desktop app. You can continue to leave your feedback for this feature here, thanks!

I believe you may want to pop this in the Spotify idea's page - This page is for feature requests and ideas for this community :)

I liked it when you have a music visualization for the music that you are currently listening to, artistic or music beat or just use Itunes as an example of what I am talking about. What do yo think?

Later Spotify Apps will support audio track data according to a developer at Spotify, if everything holds at the legal side, it will probably open up for visualizers.

How about visualization effects within the player i.e windows media player, winamp

Something like Milkdrop would be really cool

Please add visualizers for the desktop version of spotify. It will make listening to music more enjoyable instead of looking at a list of songs

That's grea tot hear krikelin, have you got a link to where they mention that?


I loved the classic Milkdrop visualiser for WinAmp, I think it's since been open-sourced so that'd be great to see in Spotify. Any good visualisers would be great to have though, defintiely the main missing feature for me!

Preferably Milkdrop, but basically any trippy visualizer will do.
