Spotify app completely redesigned with support for Android 4.0
Nearly six months since its last update in the Google Play Store, Spotify for Android is getting a top-to-bottom makeover. The developers are previewing a beta version of their new app over on their website and listing a number of new features for us to anticipate. Along with adding support for Android 4.0 devices, Spotify seems to have borrowed heavily from the Ice Cream Sandwich aesthetics for other versions of the platform to enjoy.
New features in Spotify
- Totally new app with full support for Android 4.0
- Top-to-bottom redesign
- All-new slide-out navigation
- Even more social – check out friends’ profile pages and playlists on the go
- Artist imagery in high resolution
- Related artist view – available for the first time on mobile
- ‘Extreme’ sound quality setting for 320kbps listening
- So much faster!
There’s no indication just yet as to when we can expect to see this hit the Google Play Store, however users can download the beta release immediately. Keep in mind that you’ll need to be registered for a Premium account and your device will need to be set to install apps from outside sources.
