How long is this gonna take? Such a buzzkill sharing the 4 panel cover on IG stories 😞


Why does it only do this with custom playlists? If you share an official spotify playlist it always shows the cover art. Is it because of some sort of legal issue?



Would like to understand how/why this is an issue. Is it the bandwidth of sending the images to IG? Does IG have custom API for accepting playlists from Spotify? 

For that matter, how are the 4-panel album cover images made? When I make a playlist, does a script run to fetch those images and make one composition image? Lots of questions. 


You guys keep taking features away, subtle things that long term subscribers like myself miss. The thing about us early adopters though, is we aren’t afraid to try something new. 


Yes please. Honestly this makes the feature useless in my opinion as I'm not going to share something that looks as unprofessional as the default 4 image tiled logo. Real question is why wasn't this within the original scope of the feature?

I was actually surprise that this isn't working as intended. If the playlist has a custom artwork it makes no sense to share to instagram stories with a different one.


Uhh that would be amazing if we could do that! That's a part of the vibe of the playlis come on ❤️

Yes! I hope this happens, it being the standard four tile is actually stopping me from sharing the playlist cause it looks wack which is not only lame for me but also not really in spotifys best interest I'd imagine.


Hoping they add this feature soon
