Spotify for Android and iOS gets a refreshed Home Page

Spotify gets a New Home Screen

Spotify refreshed Home Screen

Spotify has released a new update to both its Android and iOS apps, bringing a refreshed home page to bring forth the content you need at the precise moment it thinks you’ll need it. Spotify wants this new home page to be the smartest destination for finding content.

Starting today, when you open up your Spotify mobiles or tablet apps, you’ll be greeted with a refreshed user interface that allows you to quickly jump back into familiar content.

Spotify is positioning the new look and design as a more personalized landing page, and as a result a new dedicated section has been added to the very top of the home screen. Here, users will find quick links to some of the content they most often access, including shortcuts to albums, podcasts, and playlists.

However, this section is not static but will change depending on the time of the day, as Spotify will try to tap into what it knows about your daily schedule and highlight content it thinks you’re most likely looking for at that specific time. For example, if you always listen to the same album on the drive to or home from work, then you should probably expect a link to that album to surface at those times, but not necessarily at other times of the day.

Below this personalized section, Spotify will display a “made for you” section. Different to the previous section, this one focuses more heavily on what Spotify thinks you might like. In other words, this is a discovery section that will showcase personal recommendations based on your listening habits. Whether this is also heavily influenced by whatever’s in the top section remains to be seen, although it is possible.

Lastly, don’t be surprised if the app welcomes you with either a “Good morning,” “Good afternoon,” or “Good evening” message, as this is also being added with the new update. The latter of which is just another example of the new look and design focusing not only on what you typically listen to, but when you usually listen through the Spotify app as well.

While the update is now starting to roll out, it may take some time before it goes live for all users, everywhere
