Chromecast now playing screen ruined with tiny cover art, wrong pictures and missing information

Edit: Vote for a fix HERE


For some unimaginable reason the now playing screen Spotify shows on TV when streaming to a Chromecast has been changed so that the cover art is tiny, there's sometimes a poorly chosen picture presumably of the artist in the background and progress bar only shows up for a second when you pause or resume playback.

Is there a way to fix this, i.e. revert back to the previous version?

The current now playing screen does not work for the following reasons:

  • The whole point is to see what's playing. For that, album cover is much more significant than artist picture, because it's tied to current track more exactly than some artist picture (artists tend to have many albums).
  • Artist pictures are often wrong (even showing cover art for an album that's not playing)
  • There's no way (that I can think of) to see progress bar without pausing music.
  • Playlist is hidden too (again, only pause brings it back)
