Spotify’s new ‘Canvas’ format is currently still in beta-invitation phase but is being rolled out to a wider selection of artists right now.
Below is a screenshot of what you will see when you select the “add canvas” button that appears in your Spotify for Artists dashboard.
Once uploaded to Spotify the eight-second looping videos are shown on the ‘Now Playing’ screen while listening to a song. To see one in action, listen to I Got You from HONNE on mobile.
Nice to see this format rolling out to more artists and it shows Spotify’s commitment to making listening to music visually interesting too.
