Not enough space in "Discover" section on iPad - scrolling glitches

The "Discover" section is really difficult to use on iPad. Please see attached video. The "viewable space" is very tiny and does not let you see enough things at one time. This leads to lots of scrolling and due to the way the "panels" are, its easy to accidentally swipe out of the area you are trying to be in. Is it possible the "pannels" could be maximized to full screen like how it is on iPhone? Thanks.

 

(edit: it didn't let me upload the MP4 of the screen recording so I had to put it in a ZIP)

Hey @sdschramm! Welcome to the community!

 

Alright, that's no fun! It looks like you have turned on larger text in the Display & Brightness settings of your iPhone. Spotify is aware of this issue and their best tech folks are checking it out backstage. You can follow this similar issue for updates. In the meanwhile, you can lower your text size. Let me know if you have any other questions.


Take care! :)

Lowering the text size is not an acceptable solution.

Lowering the text size did not make any difference. The visible area is still too small with the way the "panels" cover each other.

 

The first page on the "radio" and "browse" screens is good, the whole screen can be used (minus the small sidebar strip). However once you select something and the sidebar on the right opens, it takes up 50% of the screen and then going back and forth these "bars" are in the way. It would be better if the screen would take up the whole width so more can be seen as a time.

Sorry that the workaround didn't work. Spotify is investigating this, and I think the best thing to do now is keep an eye on this page. Let me know if you have any other questions.

The thread you linked to has nothing to do with this issue I reported.

That link does not relate to my issue either. The font size is not the problem. As I already mentioned, if I lower the text size the issue is still present. Its the size of the "panels" in the UI and how they cover each other rather then opening full size and being able to move out of the way.
