Spotify is adding new functions for users to discover new content from the mobile.
The idea is that users find a more personalized experience without having to take any action. And for this, they can use the new options that they will find in Home.
New features for Spotify on iOS and Android
Without having to do a manual search or go directly to our library, Spotify brings together some options at Home to discover new content with recommendations based on what we have heard recently, weekly discovery, news radar, mix, etc.
And it also allows us to resume music that we have heard, for example, with Go back to, immerse yourself in your music, etc. And now all this dynamics is enhanced with new functions. Some are exclusive for premium users, for example, they will find a new source of recommendation to discover new content, taking into account their preferences.
On the other hand, another of the functions for premium accounts will focus on recommendations for new podcasts. In Home you will find these new recommendations with a blue dot to differentiate themselves from those podcasts with half-finished playback.
And for all users a time travel function will be implemented that allows users to go through up to 3 months of playback history. Yes, you will be able to see your history of the last months and play those songs that you liked in the past.
It will only be necessary to choose the clock icon, at the top of Home, for the app to direct you to your new section with all the content divided into dates. You will see songs, playlists, podcasts, etc. They have not mentioned if this option can be disabled from the app’s configuration, so that it does not save the playback history, so we will have to wait to see what the dynamics of this function is.
All these functions will be implemented in the Spotify app, both on iOS and Android, during this month. A dynamic that both those who have a premium account and those who choose Spotify to listen to music for free will take advantage of.
