Accessibility - New Text Resizing options for iOS

Hey folks,

 

Writing since we'd like to share an accessibility update with everyone 🙂

 

We have started implementing support to larger text sizes in iOS devices. You can now enable 5 extra text sizes under the iOS Accessibility Settings by going to Settings>Accessibility>Display & Text Size.

The feature is still gradually being rolled out, but you should see it soon. Just make sure both device and app are up-to-date! 

 

We'd love to hear your feedback on this. Post anything you'd like to share here.

 

Take care!

This update actually made my accessibility settings in spotify worse. I now have to make the font size on my phone smaller in order to use spotify (otherwise I can't see song titles). Is it possible to create the functionality to customize font size within the spotify app vice via phone settings?

This doesn't help in the My Library page. Actually it makes the UI regression even worse, as I now have to slide the filters to the left every time I want to click on the podcast filter.

 

Enabling system font size scaling in the app is not an adequate band-aid for the accessibility regressions introduced in this update
