Spotify refreshes its iOS app with streamlined controls and a new look
The first major change is the introduction of a new, circular play icon for Shuffle Play, which is used universally across the app’s playlists, albums, and artist pages. This replaces the pill-shaped Shuffle Play button that existed before and gives the app more continuity across content.
Finally, each track will now appear with the cover art across the entire interface, except for its album page (where the cover art is already displayed at the top). These changes don’t represent a complete overhaul or the introduction of any major features, but it gives the platform a more unified look and easier access to controls.
The update rolled out today and should make its way across all iOS devices soon, if it hasn’t already.
