Spotify Introduces New User Experience Across Desktop and Web
Starting today, Spotify is rolling out a new improved look and feel for its apps for desktop and the web in an attempt to align the experience and make both easier and simpler to use.
“We constantly test, develop, and launch new features, optimize for new devices,” notes Spotify. With this redesign, the audio streaming giant says it is combining the “modern and scalable web player together with a cohesive Spotify design.”
In the updated design, Search can now be found on the left side of the navigation page, whereas the listeners’ profile pages now include top artists and tracks. Moreover, listeners can now start a radio session for any song or artist radio by simply clicking the “…” menu.
We’re also introducing more ways for listeners to easily tailor their playlists, including the ability to write descriptions, upload images, drag and drop tracks into existing playlists, and even use a new embedded search bar to find and add new songs and podcast episodes to new and existing playlists.
The new redesign for the Spotify app on desktop and web is rolling out to all users globally over the coming weeks. Mac users can download it here, while PC users can download it at this link.
