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

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Go to Display -> More Dark Mode options.
  3. Here under Individual apps turn off the Enhanced dark mode for Spotify.
