Spotify has updated its ‘Home’ hub with new navigation and discovery features to offer a more personalized experience. Now, subscribers will be able to replay their favorite songs, discover new content, and more directly from the Home interface. The new features will be released to subscribers worldwide this month on iOS and Android.
From Spotify’s announcement:
About a year ago, we reworked the Spotify mobile experience to refresh our Home interface. Since then, Spotify users have been able to access the content they love more quickly and easily—and maybe even discover something new straight from their home screen. But the ease and discovery don’t stop there. This month, we’re announcing a series of updates that will make the Home experience even more personalized for each and every listener.
New ‘Home’ hub on Spotify brings quick access to history, podcasts, and discover interface on iOS and Android
Designed to make podcasts and music more accessible, the updated ‘Home’ section of the Spotify mobile app now lets users easily navigate listened to history, move to podcasts, and discover new music, artists, and more. The announcement describes the features:
- Travel back in time: Rediscover lost gems in your listening history with a new “Recently played” destination, where users can jump back in time and browse up to three months’ worth of listening history. Premium and Free users globally will be able to browse recently played individual tracks and episodes in addition to the playlists, albums, and shows they were played from.
- Jump into new and unfinished podcasts: Global Premium users can view new and relevant podcast episodes right within the Home hub. New episodes will be marked with a blue dot, and episodes you’ve already started will display a progress bar indicating how far into the episode you are.
- Discover more music: Premium users globally won’t miss a single track from artists they love. Now, you will see a new surface highlighted on top of the Home hub dedicated to discovery-oriented recommendations that are personalized, timely, and reactive to your taste.
Previously, it was reported that the Swedish music streaming service is testing a new Snap-chat like Stories feature to promote playlists and artists which proves that the company is working on bringing new features on the platform to improve accessibility.
