Spotify Connect makes your iPhone into a remote control when playing Spotify content on other devices. Spotify Connect is supported by over 2,000 devices including smart speakers, TVs, game consoles, and more. Instead of streaming from your iPhone over a Bluetooth connection, the Spotify app plays content directly on the remote device.
The Spotify Apple Watch app has a new look. Spotify has delivered with an improved library view, larger controls, and swipe gestures for the Apple Watch. Owners of more recent Apple Watch models will enjoy larger artwork, bigger buttons, and new animations. The changes come as Spotify continues to offer its subscription pricing at $9.99 per month with no ads.
According to the developers:
By default, Spotify streams podcast video whenever it's available. While this makes your favorite podcasts more like watching a TV show or televised interview, it also sucks up data. If you're only listening to the podcast, why stream video at all?
Switching between streaming music services can be a major hassle. No matter what the reason for changing between subscriptions, it means all of your music could be lost. Hours of work spent curating playlists and selecting favorite songs and albums can disappear. Instead of starting from scratch with a new streaming music service, iPhone users have asked how songs can be transferred from one platform to a new one. Luckily there is a way that avoids manually copying playlists.
The Enhance button automatically suggests additional songs to match an existing playlist. It does not modify your playlist without approval.
