Spotify is a music streaming service that offers you access to millions of songs and podcasts. You can listen for free with ads or listen without ads with Spotify Premium. Spotify Premium will also let you download songs to listen to offline.
One of the great things about Spotify is that it makes it easy to follow your favorite artists and get notified whenever they release new music. That’s exactly what this new feature is built to do.
New Feature For Spotify: “What’s New Feed” On iOS And Android
Spotify is adding a new feature to its popular music streaming app: the “What’s New Feed.”
As of today, you will be able to see a list of new content your favorite artists have done. This includes new albums, songs, and playlists. The feature will be rolling out over the next few weeks. So keep an eye out for it!
How This New Feature Works
The way this new feature works is simple: when you open up the Spotify app, you’ll see a new “What’s New” panel at the top.
This panel will show you all of the new releases from the bands, musicians, and shows that you follow on the platform.
Spotify says that the feature will update in real-time. You’ll always be up-to-date on what’s new with your favorite artists.
Plus, there will be a blue dot overlaid on top of the bell icon to indicate when there is new content.
This is an excellent addition to the Spotify app. It makes it easier to keep up with your favorite artists and find new music you’ll love.
You can customize the music app by following and unfollowing artists to only see releases that interest you.
One thing to remember is that you must follow an artist on Spotify to see the new feature.
How Do You Follow An Artist On Spotify?
First, open the Spotify app and log in. Then, go to the artist’s page by searching for their name or scrolling through the Discover section.
There are a couple of ways that you can follow an artist from this point.
The first way is to go to the artist’s page and click the Follow button. You can also add an artist to one of your playlists, and you will follow them automatically.
You can also search for an artist and click the Follow button from their search results page. When you follow an artist on Spotify, their new music will appear in your Release Radar playlist. You will then be notified whenever they release new music.
You can also add artists to your Favorites playlist, which is a great way to keep track of all the music you love in one place.
To do this, just go to an artist’s page and click the Add to Favorites button. Following artists on Spotify is a great way to ensure you get all the new releases from your favorite musicians.
What Makes The “What’s New Feed” Different Than The “Release Radar”?
The Release Radar is also a feature that’s designed to surface new content for you to add to your Spotify library. The way the two features go about doing this is different.
Release Radar uses a mix of human curation and AI software to highlight the songs you’re most likely to enjoy from a new album, EP, or single.
Release Radar is a great feature, but it’s more focused on helping you find new artists and not new updates for your favorite artists.
If you’re looking to keep up with your favorite artists, the What’s New Feed is the better option.
If you’re looking for a more comprehensive way to discover new music in your favorite genres, the Release Radar is worth checking out.
Shuffle Mode Is Back On iOS
Alongside the news of the new “What’s New Feed” was another piece of Spotify news. Shuffle Mode is back on the Spotify app for iOS devices!
This means that you can listen to your music in a different order each time. It’s a fun way to discover new songs and artists.
To use shuffle mode, open up the Spotify app and tap on the “Shuffle” button at the top of the screen. This will shuffle your current playlist or album. You can also tap on the “Shuffle Play” button to start playing a shuffled version of your entire library.
With this new change, you can decide the mode at the top of your playlist and album list to listen in. Whether joyfully going through songs on Shuffle or simply pressing Play for an entire album, Spotify has you covered.
New Top Albums Feature
To make finding new music more accessible, Spotify is expanding its Top Albums section with a list of the most popular albums in your friends’ circles.
This feature will most likely roll out for android users as well, but there have yet to be any official plans.
Spotify Vs. Apple Music
Both services have a free version and a paid subscription.
Apple Music is the better option if you’re looking for a comprehensive music streaming experience. Spotify is a great app for discovering new music, but it doesn’t offer as many features as Apple Music.
Apple Music has a lot of features. You can listen to music, create playlists, and see what your friends are listening to. You can also listen to live radio stations. Spotify has a similar feature, but it’s not as comprehensive as Apple Music.
If you’re looking for a simple music streaming experience with a lot of great features, then Spotify is the better option.
