Spotify announced a new layout for the users music library on Thursday (29). The new-look has a menu that gives more options for organizing playlists, albums, and podcasts, allowing you to display items in alphabetical order, set your favorites at the top of the screen, use filters to display saved titles, do internal searches, among other possibilities. The novelty will be released to all users of the application for Android and iPhone ( iOS ) next week.
The new layout has an internal search tool, identified by a magnifying glass icon, which allows you to find songs from the library more quickly. In addition, new dynamic filters displayed at the top of the screen will allow you to categorize the files displayed in the folder. You can determine that the app only shows songs, albums, playlists, podcasts or downloads, and combine the filters together to make the results even more accurate.
The user will also be able to choose how he wants to see the library at that moment: displaying the most recently played songs, the ones that were added last, the complete list in alphabetical order, or organized by the name of the creator. A new shortcut will also toggle the display format of the songs on the screen, between the traditional list or a grid with large blocks.
It will also be possible to pin up to four items at the top of the screen, to access them more quickly. To pin a song, album or playlist, just slide your finger to the right until you see the pin icon.
In a statement, Spotify says the new version of the library will offer a more streamlined way to explore and find saved music and podcasts:
“The updated Library design and additional features will allow you to spend less time searching for content and organizing your collection, and more time rediscovering the music and podcasts you love ”.
Recently, streaming has also reformulated the design of the screens of the computer program, repositioning buttons, facilitating the creation of playlists, and freeing the download of music to listen offline on the PC. Another feature recently launched by Spotify is the mini player integrated directly into the Facebook feed, which plays music without leaving the social network.
