Spotify for Android app updated for Google Play

Android users can now access the updated via their Android-toting handsets

Spotify for Android app updated for Google Play - users of Google's mobile operating system can now access new and improved music-themed content

An updated version of the Spotify for Android app is now available on Google Play, with those using Google’s mobile OS now able to access the music streaming service’s vast catalogue of tracks, along with a raft of new features.

This follows the launch of a beta version released a few weeks back.

The new version of the app boasts a myriad of new functions including playlist folder support - a widget that gives users the ability to control the app from their home screens - and Last.fm’s scrobbler tool, which automatically fills users’ music library and updates them with what they’ve been listening to.

Also in the mix is gapless playback settings, profile pages and playlists as well as artist profile pages and imagery, although T3 understands new developments could be placed on these functions as the weeks roll on.

Gustav Södertröm, VP Products at Spotify, said: “For all our Android users, this Spotify update is a huge leap forward. We’ve rebuilt it from top to bottom, making it faster, slicker and much better looking.”

As with all Spotify Mobile apps, you’ll need a Premium subscription to get your music on the move.
