Black/dark background on song

Black/dark background on song



iPhone 7

iOS 10


So the thing is that when playing a song, a dark background instead of a colored one (based on album art), is displayed.

I would like to know if it is possible to replicate this, or if it is just some type of bug. Thanks in advance!

Hi there!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps.


Could you try updating to iOS 13.3.1?

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running?

I'll see what I can suggest next!

I think they’re asking if there’s a way to keep it dark or if there’s a setting. If that’s true I agree I actually prefer the dark background on songs a lot better than normal. If there isn’t a setting then I think it should be added because it looks so much better than the basic solid color.
