Fortuitously, the corporate will quickly launch a small tweak that locations search filters on the high of the web page (just under the search bar), permitting customers to simply swap backwards and forwards between artist, tune, playlist, and album searches.
Beforehand, folks wanted to scroll down under their search outcomes to use these filters, a course of that was complicated to some and irksome to others.
Tidal, Apple Music, and YouTube Music customers can already search utilizing simply accessible tabs, so Spotify could also be a bit late to the search celebration, however the change is a welcome on. You’ll be able to see the outdated search and new search aspect by aspect above, and the latter is undoubtedly simpler to make use of, particularly for individuals who use the app’s discovery options continuously.
Whereas ease of use doesn’t rank excessive on everybody’s record of considerations, the streaming panorama is aggressive and fast-evolving. Differentiators, nevertheless minor they could appear, could make a big effect within the battle for subscribers. For example, Spotify’s announcement of its HiFi subscription tier — which is able to convey lossless, hi-res music to customers later this yr — could have influenced Apple Music’s latest resolution to assist lossless hi-res audio and Dolby Atmos Music at no further price.
In any case, we’re glad to see that Spotify is responding to person suggestions and optimizing its service accordingly. The change ought to make it simpler to find new artists and songs, in addition to assist customers to increase their music libraries.
