Casual Listener

Please support this idea. I would like to use the Samsung TV app but am seriously concerned it will permanently damage my TV.


I agree.  Just purchased a new Denon 

receiver with Spotify built in and I subscribed for the 3 month trial right away onlybto realize Spotify does not support a screensaver.  This is a major problem for home theatre users.  Please make this a

priority to address.  


+1, especially for anyone with an OLED display.


This should be fairly simple to implement, no? Very strange that people have been asking for this very basic function for years, but Spotify has done nothing yet.


Would love it, even if it just did basic screensaver based on the album art in the playlist.


Yes please, add the screesaver to the spotify Samsung app, as my smart TV doesn't include the image off option.


On Amazon Fire TV, going to the home screen allows the music to continue, but enables the native screen saver to kick in. Only problem is the TV will sleep after 30 min. There are ways around that too with Tasker, some other options; you can search online for them.


It's baffling that this was not implemented in the first place! While I can work around the issue by turning the tv display off, this is tedious as it requires browsing through multiple levels of the menu. Please implement this quality of life feature.




I also think that it would be great to solve this problem even with a built-in screen saver or with a function that turns the display off. The way it is now you can only listen to one or two tracks without the fear that the screen burns in. A full album is too long because of the static display. So please try to work on this issue because the app is very good, especially the option that enables to connect it with other devices.
