Popular application Spotify designed for streaming music and podcasts brings a new design of the song library as well as sharing the lyrics of individual songs. We also have the first photos of the new design line of the application.
Spotify: New song library design
Spotify, as one of the most popular mobile applications, is testing the new user interface on Android. This should make it easier to navigate the content and combines an extensive catalog of music and podcasts along with a list or grid layout.
The new design comes as a leak of information from the Android Police source, thanks to which we also have the first real images of use. After the new one in your library you will see links - Playlists, Artists, Albums, Downloads, which will allow you to quickly filter content. The playlist button has moved to the upper right corner, next to the new search button.
"What sets it apart from the old design is the display of the grid for those who prefer a more visual layout and the aforementioned ability to see everything in one list. In the old design, you had to click the - Filter button next to the search bar and check the filter - Downloaded, but this only applied to the current tab. So if you wanted to see all your offline content, you had to choose it separately for albums, again for playlists, and then for podcasts. If you wanted to go back to viewing the entire contents of the library, you also had to cancel the selected filter on each tab separately. In short, it was not an effective experience. " - Explains Android Police.
A familiar application starts sharing lyrics
The new design is not perfect, it has its flaws. For example, when you use the - Downloaded filter, all folders that contain an offline playlist are displayed in the list. Opening a folder then reveals all of its contents, not just the offline playlist.
In addition, Spotify introduces a feature that allows you to share lyrics on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Until now, it was only possible to share the songs themselves, not the accompanying lyrics, via social networks. New features come together this week at Spotify's Stream On event. At this event, Spotify also introduced a new level of HiFi, which we do not know more about at the moment.
