If you are an inveterate music lover and want to get even more juice out of the Spotify app, we review some of the most appealing features released by the streaming music giant over the past year.
2018 is becoming a great year for Spotify: the music platform has reached the stratospheric figure of more than 80 million paid subscribers, they have introduced numerous improvements to their free plan and last spring debuted on Wall Street with a rating of 29,500 million dollars.
For those people who want to fully enjoy Spotify and its possibilities, there are many new features that are worth taking a look at and introducing in your daily use of the application. Next, we review up to six juicy news to enjoy music streaming from anywhere and device.
6 Spotify highlights in 2018
The new 6 Spotify features that are released in the past year are as follows.
Best recommendations and personalized playlists
When it comes to meeting new artists, genres and songs, the Spotify algorithm is increasingly sophisticated, allowing you to access specially designed features for you such as Weekly Discovery and News Radar. In the section Explore you can also access different lists of successes ordered with very different criteria, being able to find new songs by genres and moods. It should be noted that Spotify has begun to work on recommendations in other areas of the application, such as search and artist radios.
Increase in the limit of download
Previously Spotify allowed listening without connection 3,333 songs on three different devices. Now they have increased this figure to 10,000 tracks per device in five different devices. Unfortunately, the personal library of saved songs is still limited to 10,000 songs, but an early extension of that limit is expected.
Integration with Google Maps and Waze
Driving enthusiasts who enjoy their favourite music while travelling, are in luck with this functionality. To enable Spotify in Google Maps, you only need to go to the Settings section> Navigation> Music playback controls and select the “Spotify” option. For Waze, open the Spotify application, go to Settings> Social and enable “Waze Navigation”.
New approach focused on podcasts
During the last year, Spotify is exploring innovative formats such as podcasts, linked to chains like the BBC and NPR. Increasingly, they are expected to take more weight within the application to meet the content needs of their users.
Share songs on Instagram Stories
There is a possibility to share Spotify tracks directly on your Instagram Stories so that your friends can see what you are listening to. You just have to select the desired song in Spotify and click on Share> Instagram Stories. Publish it as usual and your followers can open it directly when they see it.
Access to the song credits
Many people work behind the music you listen to, and Spotify wanted to reconcile with the composers and provide the interested parties with all the important information. For this, it has launched a Secret Genius program that allows you to see the extended credits of the songs within the app. You just have to select the song in Spotify and click on “Credits of the song” to see them.
