Spotify, the popular music listening app, today renewed its desktop design for Windows and Mac devices. The platform, which also changed the appearance of the web player, introduced its improved new interface to its users globally.
With the latest update, Spotify is gaining more fluid speed than the older version; it also became more visually neat. In-app navigation has been greatly improved. Users also received new control options for playlists, search, radio, podcasts, and music libraries.
Spotify desktop and web player is now more practical
Spotify, which comes with a new desktop and web design, did not immediately make radical changes that would stand out at first glance. Instead, the app distributed scattered menus and options to different pages. Pages such as Acclaimed Songs, Weekly Discovery, Daily Mix and New Music Radar were moved to the Library tab. Again, the search feature came to the same window by filtering the music.
The platform showed special weight for Playlists in the new design. When adding the list creation button to the built-in search bar; drag-and-drop feature was noted to add tracks to existing lists faster. Additional options such as uploading photos and writing comments to lists were also not overlooked.
Confession from Spotify: We haven’t done enough in our desktop app
Announcing its new interface to its users in a blog post, Spotify made a confession that everyone is aware of but has not been mentioned to date. Noting that they are mostly interested in mobile versions of the app, the company explained that they have not focused enough on the desktop version so far:
“We are always looking for ways to offer the best possible experience on Spotify. Thus, our listeners are constantly discovering new music and podcast programs. For this, we pay attention to the issue of appearance and functionality. We are constantly testing, developing and launching new features. We optimize for new devices and aim to expand our content offerings. But in dealing with all this, we felt that our desktop app experience had not progressed enough and that it was time for a change.”
The long-coming update also hinted that soon developers will be more interested in desktop and web player. The company announced that the new user interface will be available in all regions today.
