There’s nothing strange about Spotify updating its app, but a mysterious hue-switcheroo has got the internet in a tizzy.
For some reason, Spotify has changed its iOS logo very slightly, going from a lime green to a more minty counterpart.
It’s also lost some of its 3D shading, instead adopting a more flat, matte texture.
The update was ambiguously peddled as bringing “minor improvements,” making no mention of the colour change.
Is Spotify transforming into the Hulk at a sloth-like pace? Perhaps the streaming service simply hates limes. We may never know the truth.

Is this Spotify’s latest ploy to take on the soon-to-launch Apple Music streaming platform? If it is, we’re very confused.
