In the weeks since iOS 14’s release, more and more apps have been adding new features that take advantage of what’s in Apple’s latest update.
The leading subscription music service, Spotify joins as it announced the launch of its widget for iOS 14 and iPadOS 14.
Similar to Apple’s own widgets for Apple Music, Spotify’s serve as a means of quickly getting back to something you were recently listening to. You can pick between small and medium sizes, but Spotify doesn’t yet offer a large-sized iOS 14 widget.
“The Spotify iOS widgets will display up to five of the recently played artists, playlists, albums or podcasts covers,” a Spotify spokesperson said by email. “Users can tap on the covers to dive straight back into their content.” The small widget displays just whatever you were playing last while using the app.
How to add a Spotify widget to your iOS 14 home screen:
Make sure you’ve updated to the latest version of Spotify.
- Long-press on your home screen to enter jiggle mode
- Tap the “+” button in the upper-left corner
- Look for Spotify in the list of widgets
