Spotify Is Set To Redesign Its Home Screen
Music streaming platform Spotify is now revamping its home screen in a bid to make it easier to locate new content, adding audio and video previews for podcasts, music, and audiobooks.
The layout of the app is moving away also from a grid of album covers for an infinite scroll which is akin to a TikTok feed.
“You’ll see Spotify, I think, come alive,” Daniel Ek, founder of Spotify told CBS. “You’re gonna see a lot more interactive content.”
Spotify Made the Announcement during Its Stream On Event
The company on Wednesday announced the makeover at its Stream On event alongside a couple of new tools for podcasters and mediums for musicians to interact with their fans further.
The Spotify home screen will now offer users a stream of previews of music, shows, podcasts, audiobooks, and much other content that can be saved by users, share, or even explore as well as new videos for discovery in the search section.
The enhanced tool in addition has now been rebranded as “Smart Shuffle” and will now reorder user-generated playlists and suggest related tracks.
