Spotify desktop app gets a brand-new look

Spotify Desktop app

Spotify today announced the availability of redesigned desktop apps and web experience. The new Spotify desktop experience comes with redesigned Your Library and Now Playing views allowing you to easily explore, curate, listen to, and organize Spotify on a PC or web browser.

Here’s the latest changes in the Spotify desktop experience:

  • The main content area remains unchanged, so it will still be your central hub to browse, discover, and find recommended songs and podcasts.
  • On the left-hand side of the app window, the new Your Library allows you to quickly access your saved music and podcast collections. This will offer a better overview, and allows you to more easily switch between playlists.
  • On the right-hand side of the app, you’ll find the Now Playing view, which displays the current song or podcast you’re listening to. You can even find more information about the song and artist here, as well as information on tour dates and merch. For select podcasts, you can even follow transcripts as you listen.
  • The Friend Activity feed is accessible via the “friends” icon next to your profile picture in the top-right corner of the main content area.

The individually customizable design of these new views provides a richer experience, more context, and quicker access to personal favorites.

Spotify team also offered some tips for the new Desktop experience users, you can find them below.

  • Go compact: By default, you’ll see an expanded view of Your Library. But if you only want to see your playlist icons, you can simply click the “Your Library” button in the top right hand corner to collapse the library.
  • Search & filter Your Library: Previously, the only way to find playlists was through the search bar—and you had to wade through not only your own content, but results from the entire Spotify catalog. Now, when it’s expanded, our new Library design allows you to toggle through your dedicated music, podcast, and audiobook feeds and search Your Library exclusively.
  • Customize: We want this experience to fit the way you listen, which is why Your Library and Now Playing can both be resized to take up more or less of the screen.
  • Pin, drag & drop: You can move and pin the playlists in the Library, as well as drop songs into the editable listed playlists.
