Spotify’s heart icon is changed to a “plus” button that lets you save music And Add songs to specific playlists. Music streaming application She announced the change in a post on her blogNote that you will now have to click the new “plus” icon once to save a song or podcast to your library and then click it again to add it to the playlist of your choice.
Some users already have the “plus” button built into their app, it seems Spotify has been testing change since late last year. Previously, the Spotify app had a ‘heart’ icon available on the front which meant liking a song and saving it to your library as well as a separate ‘Add to Playlist’ button which was hidden inside the app’s three-dot menu.
While Spotify says the change should help users “save time” and make it easier to “add to multiple playlists at once,” I can’t say I like the change — but only for trivial reasons. For me, the heart is the generic “like” icon, and changing it to “plus” makes it seem less intuitive. On the flip side, I have to admit that it does seem like a useful addition for anyone looking to quickly add music to a playlist. (Something I don’t find myself doing often.)
As Spotify noted, this new “Add” button not only lets you save songs and podcasts to your library or other playlists, but also lets you add entire albums, playlists, and audiobooks. The button will change to a green check mark once the content is saved. It’s rolling out globally on Android and iOS today and will reach all Spotify users in the “coming weeks.”
