Last year, Spotify brought a redesigned user interface to the home screens for iOS and the Android app. Based on that design, Spotify today announced new features, including a highlighting section, personalized recommendations, “Recently Played” and new and unfinished podcasts.
Spotify detailed the latest redesign of the iOS and Android home screens in a blog post today.
Through this latest update, we will launch more advances on the mobile home that are designed to make it easier and more intuitive to find the sound you like. These are being rolled out to users globally on iOS and Android this month.
Here are the three new changes to the Spotify home screen:
- Travel back in time: Rediscover lost gems in your listening history with a new “Recently Played”
- Jump into new and unfinished podcasts: Global Premium users can watch new and relevant podcast episodes right at home. New episodes will be marked with a blue dot, and episodes you have already started will show a progress bar indicating how far into the episode you are.
- Discover more music: Premium users globally will not miss a single track from artists they love. Now you will see a new surface highlighted at the top of the Home Button dedicated to discovery-oriented recommendations that are personal, timely and reactive to your liking.
Spotify did not share exactly when the new home screen design would reach users. But since we close in April, all users worldwide should see the changes this week or next.
This is probably a change on the server side, but it’s good to stay up to date with the iOS / Android app. The latest iOS version – 8.6.10 was released on March 19 (March 17 for Android).
