Spotify makes major changes to its desktop and web player environment

As of today, Spotify is launching a much-needed redesign for its desktop and web player to match the feel of its frequently updated mobile app.

While aesthetic changes are welcome, the real highlights for heavy users include new playlist tools and a download button that lets you save songs and podcasts to play offline (the latter reserved for paying members).

If you like to compile your favorite tracks and podcasts, updates may end up pushing you to the desktop player instead of the mobile app.

When creating a playlist, you can now use an integrated search bar to search for songs and podcasts. You can also write descriptions, upload images, and drag and drop tracks to existing playlists.

The new controls basically make it easier to build a playlist on the desktop or in the web player and offer more ways to express yourself, which should attract users who like to share playlists with friends and the public.

Meanwhile, the design changes include a home page that aligns with the mobile app, with a mix of Spotify’s recommended playlists and their heavy rotation.

In addition to a simplified sidebar, an improved “Library”, with new filters to help you classify your music and podcasts; and updated profile pages that add your top artists and tracks. Additional adjustments include the ability to edit your queue and view “recently played” content on the desktop application.

For a company that revolutionized the way we access music, Spotify admits that its desktop and web product was inferior to its mobile app.

Perhaps, with more people listening at home instead of at work, the company was forced to pay attention to its desktop and web players. Whatever the reason for the changes, it appears that Spotify has a new recognition of the importance of its non-mobile applications.
