Spotify Premium Gets Revamped With Improved Personalization

Posted on October 18, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Social with 6 Comments

Spotify released a major upgrade to its premium music streaming service. The company today announced a major upgrade for Spotify Premium that will now offer improved personalization on iOS and Android.

The revamped Spotify app now comes with a streamlined navigation, giving you quick access to Home, Search, and your personal library. The main headline improvement here, however, is the new search feature. Spotify has completely revamped the search experience to be more personalized than ever before. When you hit the search icon, it now displays things like your top genres right at the top of the screen where you can quickly play music from all the different genres you love.

Spotify Premium now also comes with endless Artist Radio playlists that let you listen to your favorite songs and artists based on your own personal taste. These playlists can even be downloaded for offline playback.

Although Spotify’s latest set of upgrades aren’t major, they seem like the beginning of more updates. Spotify has been facing a ton of competition ever since Apple Music came out, and so the company has been constantly working to improve its own music streaming service with more personalised experiences.

    As a Spotify Premium subscriber, I'm very pleased to see these improvements. Two requests to Spotify:

    1) Related to this change specifically, please bring it to the Windows app as well.

    2) Please release an Apple Watch app. I believe with the WatchOS 5 improvements, things like streaming are now possible and downloadable playback was available with WatchOS 4, I believe (not an expert on WatchOS so forgive me if I'm mistaken about either statement).

    I've posted to Spotify forums about #2, I should probably do so about #1 as well.

      When I want to listen to Spotify on my PC, I just stream it from my phone to my PC using Squirrels Reflector 2. I've found the volume leveling in the iOS app works much better than that in the Windows app.

    I hope it adopts some Groove features.

    I think the services of an editor would be useful :)

    This article is a bit too much cut and paste from a press release. Not up to usual standards . . .

    Nice I guess, but yet you still can't reset/reseed Discover Weekly, one of the biggest complaints you see about Spotify.
