Spotify is on the agenda with an interface change this time. The “heart” button, which has been in Spotify for a long time, is replaced by the “+” button. The new and improved Plus (+) button now gives users a more streamlined way to save their favorite music and podcasts. Although the dual-purpose “+” button prepared within the scope of this step is not a huge change, it looks useful. The button will soon be activated for everyone.
Spotify’s new “+” button will have two functions
Previously, users used the heart button to add songs to the library on Spotify. To add any song to a playlist on the platform, it was necessary to click on the three dots next to the song and find the “add to playlist” option from the menu that appeared. Now, a single tap will be enough for this. In short, this innovation will reduce two functions to one button.
Making a statement on this issue, the company officially stated the following: “Starting today, we’re consolidating the Heart icon and the “Add to playlist” icon into a single symbol: the Plus (+) button. When you hit Plus (+), you’ll be able to save and choose the destination for any song, playlist, or podcast with a simple tap. This upgrade is the latest step in our ongoing work to create a more intuitive experience—all leading to an easier way for you to engage with the music and podcasts you love.”
- Tap to save: To save a song or podcast episode, tap the Plus (+) button to the right of the song or episode title in the Now Playing view. After your choice has been successfully added to Liked Songs or Your Episodes, the Plus (+) will become a green check. You can change the destination of your saved content by tapping the green check.
- Easily add an entire album to Your Library: Just click the Plus (+) button to add your favorite album, playlist, or audiobook to Your Library. You’ll see the green check once it’s been successfully added.
