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.”
He added: “The feedback we got from the preview we released a few weeks back was really positive. We wanted to give our users something special – we really hope you like it.”
