Spotify’s new ‘dark theme’ brings much more than good looks


Spotify is in the midst of rolling out its much-anticipated darker theme update for Android three weeks after it made its debut on iOS. In terms of added functionality, this hefty upgrade brings a completely redesigned user interface, together with refreshed typography and rounded iconography. According to Spotify, “Playing your favorite music has never looked so good.”

In addition to the gorgeous new “dark theme,” the music-streaming giant has also made some changes to its playlist feature. Thanks to the introduction of Your Music, you will now have the facility to organize your songs, albums and playlists in a more logical way by simply saving them in your own, personal area.

“We’re also improving our Browse feature,” said Spotify. “Regardless of whether you’re looking for something to fall asleep to, or the perfect playlist to get you geared up for your big night out, we got you covered.” Spotify’s Browse feature lets users explore new music based on tracks they’ve listened to in the past. Personally, I’m a huge fan of this particular service, and it’s great to see it being improved. 

This update is currently rolling out via Google Play and is expected to reach all Android users within the next couple of weeks. To see if the upgrade’s ready for your smartphone or tablet, just head into the Play Store and search for Spotify.
