Disable Genius Lyrics Auto Pop-up

RYMR

Okay so I'm not a big fan of the Genius Behind the Lyrics option. But at least you could just ignore it by not clicking on it. Not anymore. Spotify's latest iOS update makes the "Behind the Lyrics" window pop-up automatically and you can't see the album cover anymore. This is incredibly annoying. I'm not asking to remove this feature since I doubt you would anyways (based on your history of ignoring issues on this site). But at the very least you can revert the feature back to how it was. We like our album covers, thank you very much!

Apparently, in the next update, which is 7.9, there will be an option in the apps' settings to disable Genius Behind the Lyrics on the now playing screen. Fingers crossed.

I was actually super glad they brought back lyrics to at least one device but the forced story about the song is really the most annoying part. I'd love to disable the story part.

I completely agree. Seeing the genius automatically is very annoying. Hopefully they will revert it back or at least make the options available for premium users.

I also agree. It just seems like a needless feature to have automatically come up and use more data and having no way to disable it is ridiculous

I hate the lyrics auto-pop-up. There should be an option to disable the auto-pop up.  Fix it spotify!

Hate this! I actually thought there was something wrong with my install and deleted/re-installed to try and fix it. 😠

At least give us the option to disabled this in settings (or remove it altogether).

Completely agree, having the genius thing is fine, never used it as I didn't like it. Since the new update, it comes up automatically and it's really annoying. There should be an option in settings to at least stop it from automatically showing, or even better, turn it off all together.

Cant this feature be given an on/off toggle. I find its good when im checking a new track to be able to just view the artwork. If i want to know more or see lyrics i would then turn them on,

I proposed the idea to add a setting in the app to be able to turn it off/on [iOS] Turn off Genius Behind The Lyrics one year ago (February 2016) and on February 2017 they decided to force it down in our throats... wonderful move Spotify.
