The automatic videos in Spotify are called Canvas by the company itself. In fact, you can hardly call them videos, they are rather short, repetitive images. The Canvas videos have been around for a long time, replacing the once common album view.

Canvas videos are optimized to use as little data as possible, yet many users find them annoying. Even more annoying is that the control buttons disappear into the background when the videos are played in Spotify. Fortunately, they come right back when you touch the screen.

Now when you play a song, you see the corresponding album cover on screen, just like before. If you want to enable the Canvas videos again, you do this in the same way.

Alternative way to disable videos in Spotify

If you don’t want to see the videos in Spotify because you don’t want to use a lot of data, you can also enable the Data saver option. You do this as follows:

  • Open Spotify and go to the ‘Home’ tab;
  • Tap the gear icon at the top right;
  • Tap on ‘Data saver’;
  • Disable the ‘Data saver’ option.

Now you will no longer see Canvas videos during playback. Keep in mind that this feature does more than just not show videos in Spotify to limit data usage. For example, fewer images are displayed and the sound quality is lowered to save data.
