Spotify is going to introduce a TikTok-style Home feed for Android and iOS
Spotify made some big announcements at its “Stream On” event today. According to reports, the music streaming app is going to roll out a major redesign for the iOS as well as Android apps. The major components consist of video and audio previews for music, podcasts, and audiobooks. These will be presented in the Home feed and in Search. The new redesigned theme for the app was showcased by the company on stage as well as in various newsroom posts.
According to the company, the new UI will offer a unique and dynamic mobile interface. It is introduced for providing a deep interaction and connection between artists and fans. The company states that it is one of our biggest evolution as of now. According to Spotify, users now search for improved ways for sampling audio before diving in. For this reason, the company is going to offer an active experience with an interactive and revamped interface.
The new update for the mobile Home feed and Search experience is as follows:
- Preview on the home screen for Music, Shows, Podcasts, and Audiobooks: just tap on the type of feed you’re interested in. You will be presented with a visual and audio preview of albums, podcasts, music, and shows. You can save or share them. Furthermore, you can explore the artist or podcast pages in detail. In the end, you may play from the beginning or continue listening from where the preview ended.
- New feeds in Search: scroll up and down to explore the short clips from tracks as per your favorite genres. Use the up/down arrows to scroll among brief Canvas snippets from songs in some of your favorite genres. After that, you can conveniently follow the artist, add the music to a playlist, or share it with friends—all from one location. Using the hashtags in the feed, you may also browse related genres to find new favorites quickly.
After previewing content with the new design, you have three options:
- Save, download, or share with just one tap
- Play from the start
- Dive even deeper
