Many people would love Spotify to overtake its total interface and make it smoother whereas dashing up entry to varied areas of the app. Sadly, that does not appear to be taking place quickly. As an alternative, Spotify is content material with altering little bits of the app, one after the other. In the latest take a look at, the homescreen is getting a brand new part up high with time-specific suggestions.
The brand new part begins with a greeting — Good morning, afternoon, night — and features a compact grid of six beneficial playlists that must be good for that point of day for you. Relying on what you hearken to normally, you might even see your every day mixes and preferred songs, amongst different playlists.

Apart from the helpful suggestions, the second cause I like this interface is the upper info density. Spotify can normally present about seven to 9 playlists on the homescreen. With the brand new part, this may doubtlessly go as much as twelve — not less than if you do not get duplicates just like the screenshots above present.
The brand new interface is a server-side change and appears to be restricted for now. I am on the most recent alpha 8.5.47 and do not see it, however one among our tipsters has it on v8.5.45.
