[Playlists] Green Playlist Icon when offline instead of Arrow

Green arrow

Needless to say, this "little green weird arrow" is an imporatnt part of UI, it's telling us, users, we are ready to play our songs on the offline... but what if? IMHO, it's such a waste of "territory" by adding it in the right sight just between "words" and "black" line. What if... that would be great to turn into green the other side, look at this...


Thanks for your attention! :)

Hey @tscosj we're updating this idea status to 'Not Right Now'. Our teams carefully considered this one but at the moment the down arrow is single visual reference for offline used across all our platforms. We're hesitant to remove this altogether, but we're open to looking at other ways to indicate the playlist is offline. 

Thanks for your feedback--we're continuing to pass it along to our design teams.

Marked as new idea and edited the title slightly to make it easier to find via search. ;)

Great idea!  Since the interface doesn't rely on discerning red from green then this modificaition should also be suitable for individuals who are colorblind.

How about making a "city" section where people can go click on a city and have a shuffle play of all bands from that city! Music in a community/city is an identity and it shapes the city according to the music that's being produced. I believe bands and musicians have a lot to do with where their from. Just an idea :) David Caissy Guitarist for Doc Walker.

I don't think this would be as intuitive as it currently is. For a new user, a green down arrow will symbolise a complete download, but the usually grey music icon becoming green can have many interperatations, especially if you're new to Spotify and don't know what every part of the UI represents, where the UI being intuative is very important.

A great idea about a "hidden" UI element that just blends in but gives you even more information all while being in a sleek package.

Thanks for this idea @tscosj. We want to let you know this is under consideration and we've passed it on to our design team. When I have further updates I will let you all know right here, thanks!


I dont think its a good idea. The green arrow really shows immidiatly its downloaded. The green notes are confusing and not clear what it is for.


I also face this problem.
