Solved: Spotify Player icons not displayed properly in MIUI dark mode
Are you facing issues where the media controls in Spotify are not rendered correctly in Redmi smartphones running MIUI 12 & above? This is due to a feature called Enhanced Dark Mode in MIUI 12.
This feature tries to implement dark mode across various apps that don't even have a dark & light mode. This is what breaks the controls in Spotify. If you notice carefully, you'll see that the media controls are indeed there but the seek bar is a black dial on a black bar with black background making it invisible at first glance. The Play button is a white icon on a white background also making it invisible.
Here is how to fix this issue
- Open the Settings app.
- Go to Display -> More Dark Mode options.
- Here under Individual apps turn off the Enhanced dark mode for Spotify.
