Starting today, Spotify is testing a new version of Your Library in the mobile iOS app with select users. Right now this test is only in the iOS app. Spotify's A/B testing system will be selecting the users that are included in this test. There is currently no way to sign up for this test without being invited, but we thank you for your interest.
This thread is your go-to destination for asking questions, getting help for issues you may have, as well as to share your impressions and feedback on this new version of Your Library. If you post feedback here, please make sure to also use the green feedback button at the bottom right of the new Your Library to provide feedback.
Here is a walkthrough of what's new:
One simple list:
Your Library is now one simple list. At the top, tap the filters to filter the content you want to see and tap on the sort options to change the sort order of the list.
At the top, tap the filters to filter the content you want to see. Tap the X and then chose another filter to see another type of content. Having no filter selected will show all types of content in the list.
At the top, tap on the sort options to change the sort order of the list.
New grid view:
Are you a visual person? You're in control. With the new grid view you can view Your Library with bigger artwork if that's your jam. This is great for when you're on the go or in the car so you can find what you're looking for faster. To switch to the grid view, tap on the squares icon to the right. Tap on it again to go back to list view.
New unified search:
The new unified search can be accessed by tapping the search icon in the top right. This new search allows you to quickly search through your entire library without having to go to a specific content section.
The new unified search also shows you your most recent Your Library searches so you can quickly get back to what you previously searched for.
How to opt-in to the New Library when you are invited:
If you have been invited to test the new Your Library, you will see this popup in the Your Library tab.
Feedback: During your time testing the new Your Library you can give feedback by tapping on the green circle with the smiley face in the bottom right corner.
Faster settings navigation and switching back to the classic Your Library:
To compare the new Your Library with the classic Your Library you can switch back and forth between the versions at any time. At the top left next to the "Your Library" title you will see your profile picture. After tapping your profile picture you will see a list and you will be able to go to your profile or change settings. The top setting should be "New Your Library" and you have the option to turn the new Your Library on and off here.
Note: When using the classic Your Library, you will need to go to the first home tab in the navigation bar and then tap on the settings icon at the top right corner to get back to the settings.
Note: Remember that this is a test and features may change during the new Your Library test. Features in this test might not end up being generally released. The purpose of this test is to gather feedback and help improve the new Your Library. Please read this help article for more information about Spotify feature testing.
