Spotify has launched a new version of its mobile app for iOS. The new Spotify app is, according to Spotify, bigger, bolder, and better than ever. The changes are designed to make Spotify easier to use, with various UI changes to explore.
Spotify’s mobile app has always been pretty solid. It’s easy to navigate, and finding what you need to find amongst the masses of content is simple enough. However, there is always room for improvement, and Spotify has decided to tweak its user interface.
What’s New in the Spotify Mobile App?
Spotify details the changes on For the Record. The company claims the new mobile app offers “a more streamlined, easy-to-use interface with fresh designs to actionable icons that will make playing your favorite song or playlist as simple as the tap of a button.”
The new mobile app features simplified icons. There’s now a universal Shuffle Play button that saves you a click. Furthermore, the Like, Play, and Download buttons (only for Premium users) are now grouped in a row in the center of the screen.
