Spotify has announced its iOS app is gaining a “refreshed look” today for both free and Premium subscribers.
The update brings a “more streamlined, easy-to-use interface with fresh designs to actionable icons that will make playing your favorite song or playlist as simple as the tap of a button.”
Spotify says there’s now a simpler and more universal shuffle play button, as seen below:
Also new are easy to use Action Rows, to let users ‘like’, ‘play’ and ‘download’ in a central spot for Premium users.
“Plus, downloading for listening without Wi-Fi (for our Premium users) now has a new icon—the same one we’ve been using for podcasts,” explains Spotify. The new row will make for easier one-handed use of the app.
Other changes include cover art in all views except ‘Album’ view, to make it easier to navigate and find songs with visuals. Tracks that have been ‘liked’ will have a heart icon next to the song name.
“Spotify mobile can access and navigate music like never before. Now that you know what to look for, it’s time to get streaming,” says the company.
