Question about Animated Cover Art for Albums in Apple Music on MacOS Monterey

Questioner General

Question: are you (meaning anyone) able to still view the animated cover art for albums in “the library” section of Apple Music on a Mac? I recently purchased a new Mac, and I honestly don’t remember if I was able to still view the animation in that same section. Also, when I search for the “Sour” album by Olivia Rodrigo across Apple Music, I can see the animation on my Mac! However, the animation for that album doesn’t show up on the library section. The same applies to the other albums that contain an animation! There for, I just kind of want to hear from other Mac users! Also, do any of you know if there is possibly any way to turn on/off the album animation in Apple Music in a Mac, if possible? I know how to do it on iPhone/iPad, but can’t find a way to do it on Mac!

If those aren't working as expected, you'll want to reach out to Apple Support. They'll be able to take a look in to this with you and see what's going on.

This is not helping! I just want a simple yes or no if you can simply can view the album animation in the library section of Apple Music on a Mac! I don’t want to contact Apple support if the issue never existed to begin with!
