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. And now, Spotify is joining in. Today, the leading subscription music service 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.
