Spotify’s newly-redesigned Android app revealed


Spotify have unveiled their brand new Android app, a feature-packed revamp that should please plenty of people. Those on Android 4.0 will definitely be pleased as Spotify have designed the app from the ground-up from you guys.

Alongside that biggie, we’ve got crossfade and gapless play settings, a new widget, Last.Fm scrobbling, an “extreme” setting for audio quality (32kbps). high resolution art, new social features, and a whole lot more. We can’t find the app in the Google Play Store just yet but we’ll stay on the lookout for its arrival. Read on for more details. [via Engadget]

Spotify for Android – now on Google Play

Today we’re taking the covers off our latest and greatest Android app. Having undergone a top-to-bottom redesign and with a completely new box of tricks under the hood, we reckon this might be our best mobile app yet.

Available now on Google Play, features include:

Totally new app with full support for Android 4.0
All-new slide-out navigation
Crossfade/gapless playback settings
Widget – control Spotify from the home screen
Folder support – organise and order your playlists
Even more social – check out friends’ profile pages and playlists on the go
Artist imagery in high resolution
Related artist view – available for the first time on mobile
‘Extreme’ sound quality setting for 320kbps listening
Play queue scrobbling
So much faster!

Gustav Södertröm, VP Products at Spotify, said: “For all our Android users, this Spotify update is a huge leap forward. We’ve rebuilt it from top to bottom, making it faster, slicker and much better looking.”

He added: “The feedback we got from the preview we released a few weeks back was really positive. We wanted to give our users something special – we really hope you like it.”

As with all Spotify Mobile apps, you’ll need a Premium subscription to get your music on the move.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. The app still needs some work on options but otherwise its a huge improvement.

  2. just went to try it out and apparently you need to login through facebook, no thanks. sucks too because I was willing to through my money at them.

  3. Christmas has come early, finally it has got folder support.

  4. Good to see a large company who actually took time to read the Android design guidelines. Other app designers should take note (Facebook?).

  5. I also hate the forced “Login with Facebook”.. I was willing to pay the $10/month if the service met my needs.

  6. you don’t have to log in with facebook if you already have premium

  7. I have been running this updated app for a few months now (it was available for download directly through Spotify). It is infinitely better than the previous Android version. The only issues I had were loss of playback when switching between blutooth and headset. Hopefully that is fixed in the final version.

    1. This isn’t the same as the beta, this has added features :)

  8. The only thing I don’t like about the new version is that it is vertical on tablets. It would be nice for it to work in landscape as well. I hope that eventually happens.

  9. Not seeing this so called Folder Support anywhere..

  10. Looks like the iPhone app…

  11. One question, for the “extreme” mode, does that mean it does 320 kbps for streams, or for also caching the songs as well?

  12. 32kbps? Count me in!

  13. Are they joking?? No landscape support? I am officially cancelling my account with them, this is absolute bullshit! Rdio here I come!

  14. Playing with this now…looks great!
