Spotify evaluating upgraded user interface for their library
  • The new UI will make it simpler for users in navigating content on the application
  • The media streaming giant is also testing a feature which will allow users to share lyrics on social media platforms
Spotify is reportedly testing a new user interface for their library that would simplify the user’s experience in navigating content on the app. The new UI showcases all content, from podcasts to music under a single feed. This feed will be displayed in both grid as well as list layouts. The new library will show various categories for artists, playlists, podcasts and albums at the top with more visibility. The feed will also display playlists, podcasts, albums, artists and songs based on recent activity. Furthermore, the ‘create a playlist’ option that was previously on top has been shifted to the top right corner in this new user interface. Just besides that, a new search button has also been added. Spotify has also provided a category for downloaded content which will appear on top amongst the various content bubbles. Users will not only be able to access downloaded music for offline listening, but they can also gain access to all content related to those songs like lyrics, trivia, etc. This new way of navigating downloadable content is easier than the current way of accessing it by tapping on the filter button. However, Spotify has not indicated anything regarding the new UI in their recent event Stream On. Also, this UI is likely being evaluated on a limited scale, and the company has yet to provide any information on when will the user interface be available to all the Spotify users. The audio streaming company is also working on a feature through which users will be able to share lyrics on social medial platforms like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Currently, Spotify only allows users to share music on these networks. Source Credits: https://tech.hindustantimes.com/tech/news/spotify-testing-new-and-improved-ui-for-library-71614226329450.html
