This is very intuitive and would improve a lot the user experience.

By now the Android version of Spotify should be consistent with the iOS version. It is basic UX design and shouldn't leave any consumer out of features that show more attention towards one platform.

Especially on larger devices, it's hard to reach the down arrow in the top left corner of the Now Playing screen. The iOS version has had this feature for ages, why not add it to Android?

It's 2022 and how is this still not a feature? I've used Spotify for years on iOS and invested my money into Spotify stock. How can this very basic UX feature not be implemented yet? Stop wasting resources on shutting this idea down repeatedly. This issue is mainly noticable for the group of people switching from iPhone to Android, a difficult task already. PLEASE just implement this feature already.

Please add this feature ASAP, team. It should be terribly embarrassing for Spotify to be the only music player in the market that still does not offer this option for Android devices.
