[Android] Redesign to fit the Material Design Guidelines

Hi guys,

 

I've been using the Android app for a bit. To be honest, the UI feels a bit dated and doesn't really fit the Holo design guidelines which you can find here. One example of a really nice redesign is attached to this post.

 

Thanks for considering this.

 

EDIT: Now that Lollipop has been released along with the Material Design Guidelines, I think it would be a good idea to update the UI to fit these guidelines. A nice redesign is now attached to this post.

Hey everyone. This idea has been marked as "Not Right Now" since 2014 and today we're marking it as "Case Closed". 

 

To ensure Spotify feels familiar across all the different platforms and moments in peoples lives we work hard to ensure the experience feels like Spotify everywhere first, which means we follow our UI guidelines and would not follow the material design guidelines like for like.

 

However we are always sensitive to the nuances of the platform guidelines and work hard to balance the familiarity of the platform with the familiarity of Spotify.

 

We appreciate all your feedback, but we want to be transparent about the fact that this won't be fully implemented. Keep your eye on the Ideas Board for other announcements about idea we can implement for all of you.

This is an amazing concept design.

Spotify's current UI design is unintuitive and out-of-date. Good UI design should focus on consistency of experience, while remaining true to their brand. It's unfortunate that Spotify is stuborn on this front, and shows progressive thinking, creativity, and a bold attitude have aged out of their company, which in my opinion is what made Spotify great to begin with.

I just want to be able to rearrange my songs in my Playlist from the android app:face_with_tears_of_joy:. And I'm not talking about sorting option, I want to be able to physically drag my track up and down to different spots in the playlist.

Material Design is like a UI/UX bible to me.
