Spotify Lightsaber Progress Bar

This Tiny Star Wars Feature on Spotify Is the Best Thing We've Seen All Day

In order to hold me over until the next time (and the next, and the next) that I watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I naturally turned to Spotify to listen to the soundtrack on repeat. At first, I thought there was a glitch on my screen. But lo and behold, as the song progressed, I realized that instead of a glitch, I was seeing a small Star Wars Easter egg that subsequently made my day.

When you play The Last Jedi's original soundtrack on the streaming service, your progress bar at the bottom slowly but surely turns into a lightsaber as the song goes on. Spotify added this awesome feature for The Force Awakens and Rogue One, but if you're late to the game, don't worry. You can spot the Easter egg while you relive the film listening to the score. The lightsaber shows up for all of the original soundtracks, too, so go all in if you're a true fan.

It appears the lightsaber options vary in color — mine was red no matter which soundtrack I played (which, I mean, for me, is fair), while another fan had a blue lightsaber for all. Either way, this effect is definitely a nice touch.
