New Android app look

Hello everyone!

 

As you can read from the title of this blog, Spotify will have a new and fresh look on Android devices.

 

These are some of the design changes you may notice soon:

The “Shuffle Play” button will change to a simple green Play button. Moving away from the old design will make the playlist view cleaner. This more universal button will make it easier to understand how shuffle works for new users.

 

In addition, this is not the only change you will notice the next time you open your favorite playlist. All the playlist actions are now grouped at the left side of the screen. That way it is easier to click on them when using your phone with one hand. You can find any button you need there: follow playlist, like, context menu, download … On top of this, the download button for offline listening has a new design, which matches the icon used for podcasts.

 

Here is a screenshot where you can see the main changes of the new look:

If you are using a smaller device, you may notice that the app layout adapts to the screen, making it possible to view more content at once.

 

Finally, there will be brighter visuals on artist pages and Spotify owned playlists. Hopefully, this will make the platform even more exciting for Creators.

 

The iOS version of Spotify got a similar refreshing look. This update will bring closer both of the mobile versions of the Spotify app. Starting this week, Android users of Spotify will be able to enjoy the new look of the app and stream music and podcasts in a more accessible and smooth way. Now turn the volume up!

Nice work, team! I'm not an Android user but I'm really glad to know that android users will now get the new design like iOS got years ago. 

 

Unfortunately, it took so much time than we expected, anyway, I hope you (android users) enjoy now the new amazing design! 😊

This isn't region-locked like "Canvas" right?

Hey @reputation15 - just got it myself!  As @Loneliest_Cabin said, it's rolling out gradually so you should hopefully have it soon if not already!

PLEASE let it have slide to queue. its so unfair that apple  gets the better app. took longer than 1.5 years for this to arrive to android
its honestly shameful this whole situation

I'm a beta tester and the update didn't arrived in any of my android devices. It's a shame that even the Apple Music app for android is more up to date to the IOS version than the Spotify app, but... better late than never.

I guess it will take a couple more weeks for this update to arrive and then another 2 years for them to finally add the gestures from the IOS version.
