Spotify rolls out Revamped Desktop App and Web Player


Spotify introduced a new look for its mobile app earlier this week, and now streaming service has decided to revamp the desktop and web experience for users. The redesigned app will start to roll out for Mac, Windows, and web app beginning today and will become widely available “in the coming weeks.”


The update will bring improvement in the navigation to make finding content easier. "First, “Search” can now be found on the left side of the navigation page. Second, our refresh of listeners’ profile pages now includes top artists and tracks. And finally, listeners can now start a radio session for any song or artist radio by simply clicking the “…” menu." Spotify said on the blog.

This update will also let users take more control over their playlists, like giving the user the ability to write descriptions, upload images, drag and drop tracks into existing playlists. It even provides users with a new search bar to find and add new songs and podcast episodes to new and existing playlists. Now you can edit Queue, view Recently played and apply new sorting options to Library on the desktop app.

"At Spotify, we’re always looking for ways to provide the best possible experience so our listeners can consistently discover and enjoy music and podcasts—and that includes look, feel, and functionality. We constantly test, develop, and launch new features, optimize for new devices, and look to expand our content offering. Yet along the way, we felt that our desktop app experience hadn’t kept up, and that it was time for a change." Spotify said on the Blog Post.
