[Desktop][Other] Full-size album artwork

Musicians put in a lot of effort to their album artwork, so it's a shame that on our desktop devices with nice screens we can't see then in higher resolution than a handful of hundred pixels square. See attachement for a proposed screen – click on a piece of album art while in album view (currently this does nothing) and see it expanded to the size of the spotify window.

Hey folks,


Thanks for coming to the Spotify Idea Exchange and voting to make this happen!


We're happy to announce that full-size album artwork is now available in the desktop app and the web player. To access it, simply click on the album cover on the album page.




If that doesn't work in your app, you'll need to wait for the next update. 


Once again, thanks for helping us make Spotify better, by participating here in the Community!


Agreed, this always bugged me 


I don't think I've ever actively wanted this while using spotify, but as soon as I read this suggestion I loved it! A "stretch goal" would be to include additional artwork, liner notes, etc. that some albums provide.

OP i think you're the only person who understands me.


I don't understand why this hasn't been there from the begining in the first place!


Definitely need the option to display the album art nice and big! 


this is an easy **bleep** yea from me


Really hope this goes through, i've been sitting here pressing crtl + a bunch of times. But that kinda messes up the whole UI haha.


Great idea!
