Spotify brings a bunch of new features to its Premium service

Katie Ramirez | 19 October, 2018, 00:25

The new update is rolling out for both Android and iOS users worldwide starting today.

The updates are rolling out globally as we speak, so if you're not a Spotify Premium subscriber yet, this is probably a good time to trial the service free of charge for 30 days.

Last and certainly not least, Spotify Premium comes with "Endless Artist Radio" capabilities now, offering playlists made up entirely of songs performed by one musician.

Spotify released a major upgrade to its premium music streaming service. The main headline improvement here, however, is the new search feature. After searching for a song or artist, Spotify will offer an infinite playlist of tracks that are similar to what you searched for, presumably using the same algorithm that Spotify's other personalized playlists do. These playlists can even be downloaded for offline playback. This is what Spotify calls "Personalized Search", and it includes a whole lot of buttons. The redesigned search is the "new one-stop destination for artists, albums, podcasts", Spotify said, with listeners' favorite genres appearing at the top of the screen.

The bottom navigation bar that used to have tabs for Home, Browse, Search, Radio, and Your Library has been cut back to just Home, Search, and Your Library. Home has recommendations, Your Library has all the music and podcasts you've saved in the past, and Search - as redefined above - allows the user to explore the wide, wide world of Spotify media in all its forms. You should see the update by the end of today, if not tomorrow. I don't know, I'm not your dad.
