Spotify Refreshes Desktop and Web Player In New Design Update


Time for a refresh!

On Thursday, Spotify rolled out a new look and feel to make the Desktop and Web Player experience more aligned and easier to use than ever before.

Since the desktop experience served as the original window to the world for Spotify, this was not a task Spotify took lightly. It began with months of tests and research, talking to users, and gathering feedback. Spotify is excited to deliver a new, clean design, more controls, and a great new foundation for listeners to use Spotify across the desktop app and web player for the years to come.

Here’s a look at what’s new:

  • A new improved look and feel, with easier access to the content you love: “Search” can now be found on the left side of the navigation page. Second, Spotify’s refresh of listeners’ profile pages now includes top artists and tracks. And finally, listeners can now start a radio session for any song or artist radio by simply clicking the “…”-menu.
  • Simpler playlist creation and more control: More ways for listeners to easily tailor their playlists, including the ability to write descriptions, upload images, drag and drop tracks into existing playlists, and even use a new embedded search bar to find and add new songs and podcast episodes to new and existing playlists.
  • Save bandwidth with Offline: Premium subscribers can download their favorite music and podcasts to play them back, even while offline by simply hitting the download button (icon) in the desktop app.

The redesign is available to all Free and Premium users globally in the coming weeks.
