Major interface changes coming to Spotify for some Android users


Spotify is prepping up a major redesign for its Android app that will greatly reduce the interface clutter and make the rather popular music app that much sleeker and more streamlined. To be honest, the app has been aching for a similar update for quite some time now as it has a busy interface that's boasting a few redundant menus and pages which can be done away with.

A trove of screenshots reveal what the app might look like tomorrow or a few months' from now, as we don't really know when this update will hit the average Spotify user - the changes seem to be rolled out server-side and in waves, so your best bet is to simply wait.

Probably the most glaring new change that's about to hit the app is the three-tab interface at the bottom which succeeds the busy five-tab current one. Your Playlists, Home, and Search will greet you once you open Spotify, with Browse and Radio gone. Don't worry, these funcitonalities are just better-integrated within the new tabs and are not gone.

The Search interface will combine the previous search and browsde featrues is that much more in-line with the desktop version of the app and will soon feature large genre-specific buttons and different charts, moods, and so on. There seem to be a ton of other incremental changes in almost every other tab, including the Now Playing view.
