Spotify has been busy tweaking its Android and iOS apps in the past few months. It was only a few weeks ago in March when the music streaming service revealed they were refreshing the UI for the Home section. And now hot off the heels of that design update Spotify is once again tinkering with its apps – this time changing around the ‘Your Library’ page.
Spotify said the new version of ‘Your Library’ is streamlined to make it easier for users to find saved music and podcasts quicker.
The leading name in streaming said the redesign will mean users are spending far less time rummaging through the app trying to find what they want to listen to, and more time actually rediscovering music and podcasts they know and love.
New filters, better sorting options along with a new Grid view will all help Spotify users find the content they’re after quicker and easier.
Outlining the redesign in a blog post online, Spotify said: “We are rolling out a new version of Your Library to all Spotify mobile users.
“Now, you’ll have a more streamlined way to easily explore your collection and find your saved music and podcasts faster. Your Library’s updated design and added features will enable you to spend less time looking for content and organising your collection, and more time rediscovering the music and podcasts you’ve loved over the years.
“And as always, keep adding even more content for a library that grows alongside you into the future.”
The redesigned ‘Your Library’ section for the Spotify Android and iOS app began rolling out on Thursday April 29, with the feature expected to reach all users in the coming week.
Spotify said the UI revamp will help users browse their entire collection of music and podcasts all in one place.
Dynamic filters which let users choose between album, artist, playlist, or podcast will help someone better identify the saved content that they’re after.
New sorting options will further help too, with Spotify users able to view audio alphabetically, by recently played, or by creator name.
The ‘Your Library’ section will also now allow for four playlists, albums or podcasts to be pinned to the page for instant access.
While a new Grid View will also help users go through their saved content in a more visual way thanks to the cover art for albums, podcasts or playlists that will be displayed.
The latest Spotify redesign comes after the Home interface received a big refresh towards the end of March – a year after a major redesign.
The recent tweaks to the Home experience were meant to make the page more personal and simpler to navigate.
The update added a new ‘recently played’ section to help users find lost gems from their listening history, while a new surface at the top of the Home hub was designed to make it easier for Premium users to discover new music.
The Home page also got a new feature which help users jump right back into unfinished podcasts.
