Widgets are the easiest way to quickly interact with an app on your home screen. Spotify is rolling out a new and refreshed widget that allows users to control music playback from their home screen.

New Spotify Widget Now Available in Two Sizes

Spotify has released new widgets for its Android after a long period of 2 years. The refreshed widget is available in two sizes and shows information related to music playback. The first one is a basic widget that shows only the name of the song, its album art and media controls. This compact widget should suffice most user needs. It has a grid size of 4×1 and doesn’t take up much space on your screen.

It also displays personalised recommendations besides showing basic information like track name, album art and media controls. Based on your listening preferences, these recommendations can range from songs to podcasts to audiobooks. This widget has a grid size of 3×2 but can expand up to 5×2 to display five song suggestions at once.
