Spotify updates Windows Phone app with new Discover and Browse features
Spotify has been a bit behind with its Windows Phone features, concentrating mostly on both Android and iOS. But today, the music service has set things right, adding new features to the mobile version of its app for the Microsoft platform.
"Today we’re introducing a new update to our Windows Phone users. The update brings features Discover and Browse, meaning it’s easier than ever to discover new favorites, as well as finding the perfect playlist for every mood and moment", states the company's Channtal Fleischfresser.
Browse, a bit of a misnomer, is actually a collection of playlists designed to suit most every need, or so Spotify hopes. There are ones for working out, dinner parties, and more.
As for Discover, it's a bit Pandora-like, as it's a radio that customizes itself to the user's tastes. "Don’t know what to listen to next? That’s okay. We do. Spotify’s Discover page seeks out personalized recommendations by seamlessly combining Spotify’s best-in-class technology and social tools with curated content from music experts including Pitchfork, Songkick, Tunigo and much, much, more", the service states.
However, that isn't entirely a radio feature, but, thankfully, Spotify is adding that to Windows Phones as well, along with a new user interface.
If you don't yet have the app, then you can head to the Windows Phone Store and grab a copy. Otherwise, you should receive the update automatically.
