It is now easy to find your favorite music for Spotify for long-term updates in the library section of the mobile app.
When updated next week on iOS and Android, an easy search option is added for items that users have already added to their collections. Some dynamic filters have also been added to it, making it possible to single out playlists, artists, albums, podcasts, and shows.
And, thanks to Akash, it is now easy to separate the music you downloaded for offline enjoyment. The downloaded filter is also available within the new Your Library tab.
Spotify is providing the ability to sort a library alphabetically, by recently played, or by manufacturer’s name. The latter is probably more useful for those using the app for podcasts.
It is also possible to view the content you like in a grid that displays album art, while the albums you are playing on the loop can be pinned to the top of the library for easy access.

“Now, you’ll have a more streamlined way to easily find your collection and find your saved music and podcasts faster,” the company says blog post. “Your library’s updated design and additional features will enable you to spend less time looking for content and organize your collection, and you’ll have more time rediscovering music and podcasts.”
It has been a busy week for Spotify with the announcement that it is offering paid podcast subscriptions to rival Apple’s efforts. Spotify says it will not take any revenue from the creators until 2023. The company also announced that it was raising prices in the UK and beyond, which was less well received.
Elsewhere, CEO Daniel Ek, plotting his takeover at Arsenal, said that live audio was going to be the next major feature in the streaming era. In a call to investors (via) Techcrunch), he told: “[Live audio] Exactly how you think about stories is no different.
“Stories today exist on a format across multiple platforms, including Spotify, Instagram, Snap and many more. So i’m watching [live audio] As a compelling feature, and I think producers will engage in places where they have the best kind of producer-to-fan affinity, the kind of interactions they’re looking for. And I think it is very similar to how historically stories run.
