We’re here to let you know that we are retiring the Spotify Widget for Android this week. 


We always take retiring features in Spotify very seriously. We’re pouring our energy into new ways of creating the best experience for our users.


You can still easily access the same playback features as well as information about what is playing through the Spotify playback notification and device lockscreen.

To access the playback controls on Android simply swipe down while you are using Spotify to access the controls.

We’re also welcome to feedback from our users. The best way to give us feedback to is to write an Idea in our Idea Exchange
