Spotify Premium Gets Revamped With Improved Personalization

Spotify Premium Improves Navigation and Search, Adds Artist Radio...

Spotify's Premium app hasn't seen too much of a shake-up in the last few years, but the music streaming platform has announced the roll-out of a streamlined overhaul to its otherwise-familiar interface. The new search function is created to help discover new music, with recommended genres placed at the top.

Spotify is rolling out a major update for its paid Premium tier that further improves on the popular streaming service. The changes involve navigation, searching, and a new type of radio station. Spotify is using the same algorithms behind-the-scenes that makes Discover Weekly, and other personalized playlists, so fantastic. Similar in concept to the exploration feature that helped popularize Pandora, Endless Artist Radio allows a subscriber to build a playlist based on a specific musician or song. These playlists can even be downloaded for offline playback.

As streaming becomes the main way people listen to music, companies like Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and others are competing to figure out ways to curate their huge song libraries to suit individual tastes. "Browse", which used to be its own thing, is now essentially part of the "Search" function. The Radio option now appears after you search for a particular song or artist.

The Spotify update, which starts rolling out to Premium subscribers on iOS and Android globally on Thursday, also simplifies navigation by cutting down the number of tabs at the bottom of the app from five to three (leaving just Home, Search and Your Library).

This update will be released to the Google Play app store and the App Store for iOS devices immediately if not soon.
