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.

I’m aware that not all songs have it. But apparently the canvas feature is still not showing? I tried all songs in that playlist. What seems to be the problem and how can I fix it? Thank you!

MrGC
have you tried reinstalling Spotify?

MrGC

My Question or Issue

I used to use Oppo F5 with an older version of android and Spotify canvas was working on that phone but when i changed it to my current phone with the latest android version I dont see canvas videos anymore. I uninstalled and reinstalled spotify and did the clean reinstall and my data saver is turned off but still cant see the canvas videos, id really like to have this feature so please help me 🙂

Hey there @WardinaS

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community about this. 
 

The canvas feature isn’t currently available everywhere and this might be the reason why you can't see this option after the latest app update. 

 

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

 

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

But my brother who lives with me and uses a similar phone model to mine has this feature

Ivan

Hey @WardinaS

 

Thanks for getting back to us. 

 

Keep in mind that Spotify rolls out feature availability updates on several stages so when an update occurs it isn't immediately available to all users within the same country.

 

That's why it's possible that the canvas feature is no longer available to your Spotify account, but your brother's account hasn't been affected by the changes yet.  

 

Hope you'll find this info useful. We'll be here in case you need any further help with this.

I tried logging into my account on my brothers phone and the canvas feature is there but when i log into my phone its not there

Ivan

Hey @WardinaS

 

Thanks for keeping us in the loop. 

 

If you can see the canvas feature after logging in to your Spotify account on another device this could mean the issue you're experiencing is device-related.

 

In such a case we suggest making sure that your original device is up to speed with any software updates available.

 

Stay tuned!
