Spotify is all set to look different on your phone screen in the coming days and surprisingly the interface will be styled like TikTok. Vertical video has become the go-to choice for most smartphone users, and recent trends show that everyone wants a part of the vertical era.
For a music streaming app, a vertical feed doesn’t make sense, but when you look at the evolution of interfaces on different platforms, Spotify was always going to fall for users’ demands. The swiped-up generation has become addicted to these platforms and Spotify is hoping to appeal to more users and get them to pay for its music services. It will be available to all Spotify users (both free and paid) on Android and iOS.
The music playlist changes when you tap the button, just like the stories you get on various social media apps. You can swipe up to stream the next track or get to another playlist of your choice.
The bottom of the app doesn’t change, and you still have the Home, Search, and Your Library options. Spotify also wants more people to consume music content in the form of videos, so just swipe up and watch videos like how you do with Reels and TikTok. So why the change? Spotify says its data shows that people want to preview content before becoming fans of artists and groups.
But it’s not just about the new interface, as Spotify now boasts 205 million paid subscribers, and we’re pretty sure India isn’t a major part of that group. The platform is also making it easier to discover podcasts, new music, and audiobooks. You can save, share and explore artists.
Discovery is also being revamped to give you better search results. Explore new tracks and share them with friends. Spotify also brings Discover DJ feature for select users, Smart Shuffle for better personalized content and Autoplay feature for podcasts etc.
