Released overnight, Spotify has released an update for their Windows Phone app. This new release – version 5.0 –¬†introduces a totally new design and a small amount of new features. The UI revamp provides users with an iOS-esque interface using very familiar transparency and rounded corner design principles. The update also removes the Starred functionality like it’s iOS and Android counterparts did a few months ago and introduces Your Music – allowing you to build a library of songs, artists and albums much like iTunes.

According to the release information, the following features have been added:

  • Spotify has a bold and beautiful new look: playing your favourite music has never looked so good.
  • Your Music on Windows Phone: helps you save, organize and browse your music collection.
  • Updated Browse feature: delivering even more relevant and localized content.

While the design doesn’t necessarily follow Microsoft’s “Modern UI” design principles, the app is looking quite nice – albeit still missing features such as Local File Support and Last.FM scrobbling support. However, it’s nice to see app developers taking Windows Phone seriously. Well done Spotify.

 

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
