The latest update to Spotify offers more options for playlist creators, a redesigned interface and access to more than two thousand devices. However, it’s important to be sure that your device is up-to-date. Here’s how to check for updates.
Check for updates
Spotify is one of the most popular music streaming applications on the market. As such, it is important to keep up to date. This way you can take advantage of the latest features and security upgrades.
When it comes to updating the Spotify app, there are a few options. Some users are fortunate enough to have the app update automatically, but a majority of them may need to update the application themselves.
To check for updates on Spotify, you can use the App Store or just go to the Spotify website. Either option will work, and it should be pretty easy.
The first thing you’ll need to do is log in to your profile. If you haven’t signed in to Spotify in a while, you may need to refresh the connection with the server.
You should also check the ‘Updates’ tab on the bottom right of the screen. If there is an update available, you will likely see a blue icon.
Likewise, the update might have some minor tweaks. However, there is no need to fear if the updates aren’t installed.
Similarly, you don’t need to update the app in order to get the most out of it. For example, you can download music from it, or stream your favorite tracks. That is not to mention the fact that you can download podcasts from it, as well.
A new feature of the Spotify mobile app is its Friend Activity icon. In a nutshell, this is a way for you to see which friends are currently listening to music. Using the Friend Activity icon, you can toggle off and on which friends you want to see what they’re listening to.
Spotify is getting a new design for its home tab. The redesign makes it easier to find and play new content. It also aims to make the experience more personalized.
The home tab will feature a Music feed and a Shows feed. These will both contain feeds to help you discover new songs, albums, and shows. They will include buttons to play, like, and share.
The redesign will also include a search bar. The search bar can be moved to the top middle of the page. This allows users to find songs and albums using colorful boxed prompts.
The redesign will also include a “Liked Songs” list that lets users save their favorite songs. Users can also use the playlist to play songs on demand.
There are a few improvements to the app, including the ability to save and move podcasts. Additionally, Spotify has recently added a dedicated play button for Premium subscribers.
Some of the features of the new redesign include a softer-edged design, a new typeface, and some animated features. For example, the redesign includes re-directing screens and stadium-shaped tabs.
Spotify will also roll out the home tab to iOS users. Users will also receive personalized recommendations. While it may be a few weeks before these changes reach users, they will make it easier to find and play new content.
The redesign will also include a Music Feed that lets users see suggestions of albums, shows, and podcasts. These recommendations are also available on the WatchOS and Apple TV apps.
The redesign can be performed on mobile, tablet, and desktop devices. You can even perform the redesign from your web browser. And if you’re ready for a whole new music experience, you can buy wireless headphones that work with the app.
New ‘Your Library’ tab
Spotify has updated its mobile apps, including its Your Library tab. The new feature introduces a simpler design with a grid layout that allows you to navigate your music collection more easily. It also offers better sorting options.
This new feature is available for Premium subscribers. Upon updating to the latest version of the app, you will be greeted by a new tab with a grid view and larger album arts. The tab combines all music and podcasts into one area, making it easier to find content. You can toggle between a grid and list view by swiping left or right.
The update will also allow you to filter your Spotify collection by Playlists, Albums, and Artists. There are also new dynamic filters that allow you to pick the songs you want to listen to based on availability. Those looking to download their content can also use the “Downloaded” toggle in the new tab.
The updated Spotify apps will also feature a new Podcasts tab. This section helps you manage your podcasts and explore previous episodes. In addition, it also lets you download episodes for offline listening.
Another new feature in the Spotify updates is the ability to pin items. This feature allows you to add up to four items to the top of your page. For example, you can pin an artist or genre to show you all the content in that category. Whenever you want to look at that artist or genre again, all you have to do is tap.
Spotify is rolling out the update to all users next week. While it will be available to Premium subscribers, the update will be rolled out to everyone in the coming weeks.
New levels of control for playlist creators
With a new update to Spotify, users are now given more control over collaborative playlists. Users can now block artists from participating in their playlists, and they can also set the playlist to be private.
Before, creators had limited access to the playlists of other users. They could only allow certain accounts to access the playlists they created, and others were blocked.
Now, with the latest update, playlist creators have more control over who can contribute to their playlists. Previously, Spotify only allowed users to block artists from adding their tracks to the playlist. However, this feature is now reversible. This means that if a user decides to unblock an artist, they can re-invite them.
Now, creators can see which other users are contributing to their playlists, and they can choose to invite or remove them. The updated feature will roll out this week, and users can expect more control over collaborative playlists in the coming days.
Currently, the collaborative playlist feature is available to both iOS and Android devices. If you use the desktop app, you can right-click on a playlist and choose Invite collaborators. From here, you can add or remove collaborators, shuffle the playlist, and even edit the contributors.
Now, users can also send the link to a collaborator, who can then view the playlist from within the Spotify app. It will be possible to share the link via text, text message, and social media.
Creating a playlist is a great way to promote new releases and connect with listeners. In order to increase the number of people who can see your playlist, it is best to reach out to as many relevant curators as possible.
