Your Spotify home page is getting a makeover.
This week, Spotify is launching separate feeds for music and podcasts that will be accessible through the Home page on the app. This makes it easier to find what you’re really looking for. Your existing Home feed won’t change, but you will notice two new tabs on the upper left of the page: one labeled “Music” and titled “Podcasts & Shows.”
These feeds will essentially put all of Spotify’s recommendations in one place. The Music feed will feature new releases and playlists based on users’ music taste, while the Podcast & Shows feed will keep you up to date on the latest episodes of shows you follow, as well as suggestions based on what you’re listening to now .
The update is currently rolling out to Android users and “will soon be available iOS.” To use it you’ll tap on the “Music” and “Podcast & Shows” icons in the upper left corner on Spotify Home. Then you’ll be able to scroll through Spotify’s curated recommendations like it’s any other social media feed.
This announcement comes after ByteDance, TikTok’s parent company, filed a trademark application with the US Patent and Trademark Office for “TikTok Music” in May. The app is poised to be a Spotify competitor, but this update proves that Spotify will continue to evolve and adapt to what their users want.
