Spotify changes green iOS logo, Twitter goes mental

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.

What we do know is that Twitterers everywhere are confused, disoriented, and overly vocal about their opinions. Surprise, surprise…

There’s even a hashtag – #50shadesofgreen:

50 shades of green

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