After launching a new update to the iOS app, Spotify is now updating desktop, Mac and web apps starting today. In a blog post, Spotify says it is launching a “new improved look and feel for the desktop and web app – adjusting the experience and making both easier to use than ever before.”
Since the desktop experience served as the original window of the world for Spotify, this was not a task we took lightly. It took several months of tests and surveys, talking to users and gathering feedback. Now we are happy to deliver a new, clean design, more controls and a great new foundation for our listeners to use Spotify across our desktop app and web player for years to come.
With a brand new home, Spotify makes it easier to access the content that matters most in your library, and simplifies the creation of playlists with integrated search. Another feature introduced to the desktop version is the ability to drag and drop tracks straight into your playlist.
Spotify redesigns the top features
- Search: This tab can now be found on the left side of the navigation page.
- Listener profile: Now includes top performers and tracks.
- … Menu: Listeners can now start a radio session for any song or artist radio by clicking on the menu
- Playlists: It’s easier to customize your playlists, with the ability to write descriptions, upload photos, drag and drop tracks, use a new built-in search box, edit queues and view recently played, and use new sorting options via a new drop-down menu in the top right corner.
- Save bandwidth with disconnected: Premium subscribers can download their favorite music and podcasts to play, even when they’re not offline.
The redesigned experience of the Spotify desktop and web apps makes the features much easier to use, the company explains. Users can visit Spotify’s browser page or download the Mac app here.
