Spotify has given its mobile app a spring clean, for now on Apple’s iOS, although we’d imagine that Android will follow in due course.
Spotify is pitching the app’s new design as “a more streamlined, easy-to-use interface with fresh designs to actionable icons”. That includes a big, green ‘shuffle play’ icon; and grouping actions (like, play, download etc) in a row in the middle of the screen.
“The experience is much more adaptive and responds to the size of your device,” promised Spotify. Users can also expect to be seeing cover art for tracks much more often: it’ll be shown in all the app’s views bar ‘album view’. These are iterative changes rather than a major shake-up in Spotify’s mobile interface, but that’s no bad thing.
