Hello!

 

There should be one, once you install the Spotify apps go to your menu and click on "Widgets" and swipe until you find the Spotify one 🙂

Hope this helped 🙂

Thanks for the link. I downloaded and updated my Spotify version but there is still no widget. Am I missing something?

If you are following the steps to add a homescreen widget and spotify isn't listed then your phone is preventing it. It seems you are not the only one having widget issues with this phone.

Well all other apps on my phone got widgets except Spotify so thats why Im wondering. Maybe I had to delete and reinstall Spotify instead of updating it?

It's worth a try. You will lose any downloaded music and need to resynch/redownload.

I have been using spotify on my Android device for years.

Today I did an update which told me that "Spotify" was no longer in use and I had to install "Spotify Music"!

When I did this and it isntalled the widget has gone and is no longer available, I aso had to download all of my offline playlists too, this doesnt really bother me at all but losing the widget is a major issue for me.

 

I dont understand why Spotify would remove such a usefull addition to their service, what next, removing the music?
