Hey folks, 

We wanted to post an update as this idea has reached over 500 votes from our users.


We’re always working on improving the Spotify experience across platforms, but we’re afraid we don’t have any further information to share at the moment.


We typically don't announce integrations with third parties in advance. The best place to keep an eye on is our blog for news updates about any such partnerships.


Thanks for continuing to share your ideas and give us feedback in our Idea Exchange.

It worked, soo cool!

Oddly it works correctly when sharing to other apps, such as Whatsapp...


I’m sorry but I call BS on the whole “we are unable to integrate this feature”. I have a friend who makes handfuls of playlists and uploads her own photos and when she shares them on Instagram, it legitimately shows her custom artwork on the playlist in her story. 

They changed the status to "not right now" WHATT?!!!!

This should definitely be implemented as I find that most of my listeners do not take the time to read the description of my playlists. When I convinced some of them to use their laptop to follow, they all responded that the pictures gave them a better idea of the playlist vibe, but said they prefer to listen to music via mobile. Along with that I think it would be a great way for friends to use artwork from some of their friends. This would allow more artists to express their creativity and maybe in turn bring more listeners to the Spotify community. 




It's really needed to be done, I take time to create custom artwork for my playlist and when it comes to sharing it on instagram what I get is 4-grid album covers... No, I want to show what I created, please add this feature of sharing custom artwork to Spotify, it'd enhance the user experience!


this seems like an obvious thing, is there a reason it hasn't been implemented?




Just wanted to ask if this has advanced in any direction? This way for example smaller/single users could also provide "Cover pic" for upcoming artists or just make their artwork pop in instagram stories. 


Really hope we get this feature! 


Stay safe!
