What is Spotify's Stranger Things mode

It's really just an aesthetic effect. When you activate it and play your songs, it will activate instantly. A bluish nebula will appear and a flashlight will mysteriously illuminate the screen. You will see it like this both on your computer and on your mobile . This effect will disappear as soon as you move the mouse or touch the mobile screen, so you can return to the normal player.

To activate it, all you have to do is the following:

1. Open Spotify (it doesn't matter if you do it through the application or through the desktop version). Go to the Settings section.

2. Here you have to see directly a mode called Stranger Things . Flip the switch to activate it. You do not have to do anything else.
