Hey there folks,

We really appreciate all your reports so far!

We've passed everything on to our developers who are looking into this.

 

For now, we recommend keeping your Spotify app up-to-date as well as making sure the following conditions are met for the Canvas feature to activate:

  • your device isn't a tablet or has a pixel width that's greater than 600
  • data saver is turned off

Keep in mind that we're always testing things in the app to improve its functionality, which also might explain why you see something on the app your friend doesn’t, or vice-versa.

 

Hope this info is useful but don't hesitate to give us a shout if there's anything else.

Hey @Larabrown325,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community.

 

Would you mind  checking if there's any software updates available for your Samsung Galaxy and then performing a clean reinstall of Spotify to see if your app features are then successfully updated?

 

If this doesn't do the trick, it'd' be good to consider that tests are constantly run in order to improve Spotify and if you're missing the Canvas option, here you'll find more info regarding why. We'd also suggest to keep making sure your Spotify is constantly updated so you won't miss the latest features and improvements.

 

Hope you'll find this info useful. Let us know if there's anything else we can help with!

Hey there @fergadz

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community about this. 
 

The canvas feature isn’t currently available everywhere in the world and this might be the reason why you see your friend using it but the setting not being available on your Spotify account. 

 

We're constantly working on making all the Spotify features available in as many places as possible, so if something isn’t currently available in your country it might become available in the future back again.

 

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any more questions.

Hey there Ivan,

 

I don't think this is the case because the people who I saw have the canvas option is from the same region as me which is Indonesia. Please push an update for this because I would really like to see the canvas option. 

Ivan

Hey @fergadz,

 

Thanks for getting back to us. 

 

Keep in mind it's possible the unavailability of the canvas feature in Indonesia gets rolled-out gradually and not all Spotify users will experience the same immediately. Probably some accounts will be affected by this change also on a later stage. 

 

Hope you'll find this info useful. We'll be happy to lend a hand if you need more help.

My Question or Issue

Although my device shows a toggle switch option for enabling/disabling Canvas, the feature doesn't work at all for any songs. I have tried clearing storage and clean reinstall of the app several times, to no avail. Is Canvas not available in India till now? If yes, why is there a toggle option in the settings if the feature does not work? 

I was using Spotify Free in Spain earlier this year and it was working fine at the time. Please help?

Hey there @23j

 

Thanks for searching for the answer you need here! 
 

The canvas feature isn’t currently available everywhere and this might be the reason why you can still see the toggle switch as available but not active. This change wouldn't affect all Spotify users at the same time since it's being gradually rolled out across different countries. 

 

We constantly work towards making all the Spotify features available in as many places as possible, so if something isn’t currently available in your country it might become available in the future again.

 

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any more questions.

My Question or Issue

Canvas feature in my iPhone 11 is not working. I double checked my settings (datasaver and playback) but still missing when listening to music. I also reinstalled the application yet still the same. Maybe you can help me solve this through. Thank you in advance!

Some songs do not have a canvas, here is a playlist of loads of songs with canvas (https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1UzYNDdjN2bWsLiN1Ns9oo), play a few of these songs, and let me know if the canvas feature is showing.
