Spotify for Android update lets you control playback from the notifications shade
Now that the streaming music market has added a couple of fresh new challengers in Google and Apple, it puts pressure on the existing services like Spotify and Pandora to add new features. The former has just launched an update for Android that allows users to control playback from the platform's notifications shade. Those rockin' Android 4.1 or higher will be able to take advantage of this new feature.

The update also allows for improved radio performance and lets you control the app using nothing but your mind! This is obviously some sort of trick that you can play on others, but the changelog does include a feature called "Fictitious" which says that it uses telepathy to control the app. Now that 1 million plays of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" were requested, the band's entire catalogue is now available which was a successful promotion for both Spotify and Pink Floyd. Finally, some nasty bugs that were affecting Facebook log-in have been exterminated.

The update will be waiting for current Spotify users once they visit the Google Play Store. If you've never tried the streaming music service, you can check it out by clicking on the sourcelink.

me too, i went with it over Google Play All Access because it's simpler to use, more reliable and i'm into the social integration with Facebook.
