Spotify announced an upcoming update to Home Feeds. It’s not out yet – but will be made available soon.
Spotify’s Home is a go-to-spot to find new recommendations and revisit recent favorites. And with an upcoming update to Home, users will get a gateway to great content they will love – from tried-and-true playlists to new artists and thought-provoking podcasts.
This week, Spotify is launching a new Home experience that includes feeds for both Music and Podcast & Shows. The feature is currently rolling out to Android users and will soon be available on iOS. By creating these feeds, Spotify will help listeners to easily scroll through the type of content they’re looking for at that moment. The updated interface will make the experience more personalized while allowing users to dig even deeper into their recommendations.
The Music Feed will give listeners quick access to suggestions based on their music tastes. There will also be album and playlist recommendations as well as new buttons to make it easy to share, like, and instantly play music.
In the Podcast & Shows feed, listeners will be able to head straight to new episodes of their favorite shows. They’ll also find personalized podcast recommendations. Listeners will be able to read episode descriptions, save to Your Episodes, or start playing podcasts without leaving the page, so the experience all starts from one place.
TechCrunch reported that Spotify said that the new Home experience is currently rolling out to Android users and will soon be available on iOS. TechCrunch also reported that you can hit the “X” on the music or podcast feed to exit the feeds and return to the Home experience.
According to TechCrunch, Spotify to date has defined itself by advanced personalization and recommendation technology, so it’s no surprise that the company is adding new feeds focused on personalized music and podcasts.
9To5Mac reported that the update will be available in the coming weeks for iOS devices. You can download the Spotify app for free on the App Store. It requires an iPhone running iOS 13 or later. There are also versions for Apple Watch and Apple TV.
If your personal preference is to listen to music and podcasts on Spotify, you have nothing to lose by trying out the new Home Feeds. Maybe you will find some great new artists and podcasts.
Overall, if you really love music, the best thing to do is purchase it. This can be easily done through sites like Bandcamp, or through the official website of your favorite bands. Spotify provides a service that many people enjoy. But that doesn’t mean it will always have your favorite songs – especially if an artist chooses to remove their work from Spotify.
