Top 7 most popular Spotify Visualizer you can try

July 6, 2022 Updated

Music visualization, a feature found in electronic music visualizers and media player software, generates animated imagery based on a piece of music. A music visualizer works by extracting waveform and/or frequency information from the music and feeding this information through some display rules, which produces what you see on the screen. The Spotify visualizer software starts by analyzing the waveform and frequency information in the audio, and it looks best as a screen saver.

It would be cool to have a music visualizer that syncs with music that's built into Spotify. A Spotify visualizer was implemented in the desktop version of the app a while ago. Just type in the top left search bar spotify:app:visualizer and a Spotify visualizer app should appear for you. Then for some unexplainable reason, it got removed. Since Spotify is one of the best music streaming softwares, the one thing Spotify lacks is a live Spotify visualizer that either allows full screen album artwork or abstract visuals that go along with the music. Fortunately, there are so many third-party music visualizer softwares in the market now. Here we will list you several Spotify Visualizer you can try.
