The latest Spotify Android app update, which has been recently released, brings with it some fixes, as well as a useful new feature.
If you’re lucky enough to live in one of the countries where Spotify (also said to be planning a video streaming service) is available and are a user of the Android app, you now have the ability to sort and filter tracks and playlists, which should help you better organize your listening experience.
The change log also mentions that you will be brought back to the same position when you return to the playlist view, and that the app will no longer crash when usernames contain special character “$.” No examples of user names that would cause the crash are given, unfortunately.
The app not only returns you to the same playlist position, but also remembers the song you were listening to, so that you can pick up where you left off when you come back into it.
If you thought those features (which also happen to be real) are useful, you should check out the fictitious one that the Spotify developers have for you. Believe it or not, “this app looks good in trousers,” according to that same log.
Reactions from users on the Spotify forums to the new app update are pretty good, with the filtering feature being quite well-received.
Spotify Android users, have you downloaded the update?
