Spotify announced today that it has redesigned its application for computers and web player with an “improved look and feel” that offers design parity, and also facilitates the use of both applications and web experiences.
According to Spotify, it took “months” of tests, research, and user feedback to develop a new, cleaner design that was simpler while offering all the useful features from a desktop application.
Using the desktop app and then switching to a web player will make you feel like a flawless experience now that the two of them have the same general design. There’s a redesigned home experience, the search has been moved to the left of the navigation page, and the listener profile pages feature top performers and songs. Users can now start a radio session for any song or artist using the “…” menu.
Editing and customizing playlists is easier than ever, and there’s a new built-in bar to quickly find new songs and podcast episodes to add. Using a new drop-down menu in the upper right corner, Spotify desktop users can edit the queue and view recently played ones.
Spotify users on a Mac can download the new Spotify desktop app from the Spotify website or use Spotify in a browser via open.spotify.com.
