Android: Spotify has just rolled out an update to its Android app that completely overhauls the user interface to make it look and feel more like Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), which the streaming music app now supports. Other upgrades include 320kbps audio quality, high-resolution artist images, crossfade and gapless playback support, and much more. If you’re a Spotify Premium member with Android, there’s a lot to like in the new version.
In addition to the boost in sound quality and new interface, Spotify for Android also now supports a “related artist” view that will guide you to new music you’ll enjoy based on the musicians and bands you already like. The new app comes with new home screen widgets to control playback without opening the app, support for playlist folders, the ability to view and subscribe to friends’ profiles and playlists, and Last.fm scrobbling.
You’ll have to be a Spotify Premium account holder to make use of the new app. Head over to Google Play and pick it up if you can see it’s been updated (Google is rolling out the update gradually over the day). Let us know what you think of the updates in the comments below.
