Spotify Music Discovery Feed Unveiled

With Previews For Podcasts and Audiobooks

Many of the daily-use applications we use have adopted the vertical TikTok-style video stream, and now it is coming to one more application that we love. Spotify will start implementing a new, more visual, dynamic design for the Home section of its mobile app, following the announcement of a beta test last year. The visual feeds are designed for deeper discovery and more meaningful connections between artists and fans.


Video Updates

Now, users will be able to scroll thoughtfully through the new feeds in the Music, Podcasts, and Audiobooks areas of Spotify, where they may preview audio and video segments. There are options to save, share, preview several songs on playlists or albums, episode transcripts, and watch video podcasts if you find anything you wish to hear in its entirety. On the Search interface, where users can browse through videos grouped by genre, these visual feeds will also be available. The visual content will be included in its curated playlists, such as Rap Caviar, Release Radar, New Music Friday, and Discover Weekly. This is implemented as a means to provide song previews for specific collections before you press play.

Podcast Updates

Spotify is also giving its app podcast auto-play. It will now allow you to have another relevant episode of any podcast start automatically based on what you were listening to, just like it does for music. It is also offering users the option to switch off autoplay, much like it does for music, so you can savour the silence after your podcast is finished.

DJ & Shuffle Updates

Users will also notice Spotify’s AI DJ below the group of eight customised shortcuts on the Music tab. The software will play audio and video samples of a song as you. By pressing on the cards, you can then listen to up to five songs from an album or playlist in a similar way to how you would for Instagram Stories. Also, Spotify will briefly explain the background behind the recommendations you’re seeing. Premium Users will still see those eight shortcuts at the top of the Podcasts section, but the rest of the feed will only display previews of certain shows. Each suggestion will include an audio sample, a real-time transcription, or if the show was shot in video, a video clip. Spotify is changing the name of its 2021-debuting Enhance feature. The function, now known as Smart Shuffle, not only offers playlist ideas but also flips the order around. Double-pressing the shuffle icon will turn it on. After doing so, a star-shaped shuffle icon will appear in the upper left corner, and any tracks added as a result of suggestions will be highlighted in the list. By selecting the Smart Shuffle button once more, you can instantly delete all of the app’s suggestions and return the playlist to your carefully curated collection.


Most of these new features from Spotify will go live today, while others won’t be available until the next few weeks.
