About a month ago I noticed Spotify made a change in the music player for their playlists. It looks different then the player we have in our personal playlists, saved songs, etc. This change makes the Spotify app very difficult and frustrating to use. In the below image, I compared the two side by side. In summery, the biggest issue is that the layout of the album art looks horrible as its stretched way too big/cut off, and the playback controls never stay on the screen (constantly hide). This makes the app very difficult to use, not to mention visually looking trashy.
I've opened a ticket about this with Spotify and they don't seem to understand what I'm talking about and instead sent me on the path of the usual troubleshooting, (reboot device, reinstall the app, etc) The thing is, this change is global. It happens on all of my devices (iPhone and iPad), and is not specific to my account (my friends see this too, and I was able to reproduce it on Spotify's "test account") I haven't seen anyone post about this yet so I figured I would take the lead.
Spotify, PLEASE GET RID OF THIS NEW UI! The old UI is much more usable and looks so much better!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hey @Qwerty27_27, thanks for letting me know!
Spotify is testing new features now. Here's some more information about why you might be seeing different features.
To clearify that, a/b testing and install a Spotify beta app are not the same thing.
There is only limited percentage of users who have A/B tests on their accounts. Nevertheless, in this case, I will pass your feedback to the Spotify team.
And you may make a new account to see whether it has the A/B test or not. Then, if you want transfer all the music to new account, you can contact our support team for that.
Hope that helps 🙂
Music for you:
