Spotify lanserar ny design och nya funktioner

 

New Spotify Look

I dag lanseras det snyggaste Spotify någonsin. Vi presenterar en ny, ren design, med uppdaterad typografi och ett rundare gränssnitt. Aldrig tidigare har din favoritmusik varit så snygg. Vi vet att det är insidan som räknas, så vi snyggar inte bara till vår design. Vi vet hur mycket våra användare älskar sina spellistor, men även att de har letat efter nya vägar att organisera sin favoritmusik. Därför lanserar vi idag Your Music, som hjälper dig spara, organisera och utforska musik på ett sätt som passar dig. Allt på en plats, på alla plattformar. Att bygga din personliga musikkollektion har aldrig varit lättare.

  • Musiken står i centrum. Vår nya design gör det lättare än någonsin att få tillgång till all din favoritmusik. Det nya mörka temat och förbättrade gränssnittet framhäver innehållet och låter det stå i centrum
  • Det är din musik. Spara album och utforska deras fantastiska omslag, samla dina favoritartister och skapa spellistor. Hittat en ny favorit? Tryck bara på ”save” och lägg till den till din samling. Enklare blir det inte.
  • Vi vet att du kommer älska det. Vi har lyssnat på er fantastiska feedback för att försäkra oss om att allt ser och känns helt rätt. Ni föredrog ett mörkare gränssnitt – och nu är det här.

Vi förbättrar även Browse för att ge er ännu mer relevant och lokaliserat innehåll. Oavsett om du letar efter något att somna till, eller den perfekta spellistan inför din stora utekväll, så har det aldrig varit enklare att hitta rätt musik för varje ögonblick. Vår nya design, Your Music och det förbättrade Browse rullas gradvis ut på iPhone, Desktop och Web Player från och med i dag, och är snart tillgänglig på samtliga plattformar.

No more time limits on Spotify – #freeyourmusic

No More Limits

In case you missed the news, you can now get Spotify on your mobile or tablet, absolutely free. Find the right music and shuffle play it on any iOS or Android device.

But what about listening to music on your computer – with no time restrictions?

In the past, we had to restrict your listening time to some hours a month once a 6-month unlimited grace period had passed. But now, if you haven’t noticed, there’s no more time limit if you are using Spotify for free. We have removed these caps completely across all platforms – you can listen to your favourite songs as many times as you like, for as long as you want.

That’s right, no more time limits.

Music makes you happy – why limit your happiness? #FreeYourMusic

Music for everyone. Now free on your mobile.
