Whenever you open the desktop application of Spotify, the screen displays the Music player and you can play the songs. However, if you want to move the songs, you can shuffle them in the Desktop application. You can also access the Grid view and search icon, or you can uninstall and reinstall the application.
Several Spotify users have reported a bug that’s causing the search icon on the now playing screen to go missing. In some cases, the issue can be fixed by simply restarting the app. Some users report needing to force restart the device in order to get the search bar back.
The search icon on the now playing screen is a handy feature that allows users to find music and other recommended content, such as podcasts and news articles. If you have a premium Spotify account, you can even download and listen to songs offline.
There’s a new QR code feature in the app that allows users to scan a code with a new search camera to play music from their friends’ Spotify playlists. Spotify users can also share music by sending a QR code via SMS or WhatsApp.
Other small but useful changes include the addition of the home icon, which displays a list of recently played podcasts. It also displays recommendations based on your listening history.
The new Spotify Home icon also enables users to create playlists, change settings, and bookmark a song or playlist. It’s also possible to share playlists, and listen to music with other Spotify users via the Spotify Connect feature.
There’s also a new Daily Mixes feature that updates every day. This feature allows users to listen to songs from their favorite artists, albums, and playlists.
Earlier this year, Spotify released an update that included an improved grid view. This new feature is aimed at making the app easier to browse. Spotify has also introduced dynamic filters that will automatically update content within the library. These new features will be available to all mobile users in the coming weeks.
The new Grid view in Spotify makes it easier to find songs and playlists by displaying large tiles. Spotify has also added a new feature that lets you pin up to four items to the top of your library. This makes it easier to access your favorite music and podcasts.
The new layout also includes a new “history” button that displays individual tracks, episodes, and albums. Users can also sort by genre and mood. This feature is available to Premium subscribers. The new grid view will be available to all mobile users in the coming weeks.
The app also added a recently played tab to the home screen. This new feature allows you to see all the songs you’ve listened to in the past 12 weeks. You can also filter your favorite songs by genre and mood. The new grid view also includes a “Discover” section for Premium subscribers. This new section is a shortcut to Spotify’s curated lists.
The new library interface is available on both iOS and Android. It features a sort selector at the top, and there’s also a choice to show everything in a grid. The new grid view can be a little confusing, though.
Currently, the video integration on Spotify now playing screen is a big miss. The company claims that it is still working on it, but we’ve found that it’s a no-show for most songs.
It’s also difficult to find. Spotify’s video content isn’t particularly plentiful, and it’s difficult to see how it could be added to the main app.
Spotify isn’t the first music streaming app to offer a video integration. YouTube has a similar feature, which allows users to watch full music videos. However, Spotify’s video offering could distract the company from its core product.
In the meantime, the company is working on a new tabbed interface that will allow users to see different types of content while they’re listening to songs. It’s also adding new types of media content, such as news and news articles.
Spotify’s new canvas feature allows users to upload a short video clip of an album or song. The app can also trim an MP4 video, and it will take about an hour for it to process.
However, the company isn’t just taking notes from YouTube. It’s also building a slicker video player for its own mobile app. Eventually, it will even offer a mini player for iOS and Android.
It’s not clear if Spotify will add a full-fledged video player, or if it’ll simply show video versions of tracks. We don’t expect the company to drop the video integration on Spotify any time soon, but it’s certainly something we’ll see in the future.
Shuffle a playlist in the desktop app
Whether you’re playing music on your desktop, mobile device, or web player, you can shuffle a Spotify playlist. This is a great way to avoid listening to the same song over and over.
You can shuffle a Spotify playlist by clicking the shuffle icon. This icon is made of two interwoven arrows. It turns green when shuffle is on. You can turn it off if you don’t want to shuffle. This option is available for both free and premium users.
You can also use the Repeat button. When the Repeat button is gray, it repeats the current song. If you want to shuffle all the songs in the current view, you can use the Shuffle button.
You can also shuffle individual songs in your playlist. You can also shuffle entire albums in Apple iTunes.
You can shuffle playlists and albums in Spotify on your mobile device. To shuffle a playlist in Spotify on your mobile device, you need to log in to your account. Once you have logged in, you can find the shuffle icon in the Now Playing bar. Depending on the version of the app, the shuffle control may be hidden.
If you’re playing music on your desktop, you can shuffle a Spotify playlist by clicking the shuffle icon. The shuffle button is located on the bottom of the screen. You can also toggle it on and off for your current queue and playlist. You can also reshuffle your playlist by clicking the shuffle button twice.
Uninstalling and reinstalling the app
Occasionally, you may have trouble with the now playing screen of your Spotify app. This is because Spotify may have installed a file that isn’t uninstallable. Luckily, there are ways to fix this.
First, you’ll want to check to see if your device has any leftover Spotify files. These can include playlists, downloaded songs, and caches. You may also want to delete any files that you don’t need.
In some cases, you can even restart your phone and see the now playing screen again. This will clear up any cached data and help you start up the app. However, you should make sure that you’re using the latest version of the app. If you’re running an older version of the app, you may have a similar issue.
Then, you should perform a “clean” uninstall of the Spotify app. You can do this with a third-party uninstaller. The third-party uninstaller will automatically clear any folders and files associated with the Spotify app. This process will also remove any registry entries related to Spotify.
You’ll also want to clean your SD card, as failing drives can cause repeated pauses in the Spotify app. You can find instructions on how to do this on your device.
If you still have a problem with the now playing screen of your Spotify app, you can also try restarting your phone. You may be able to do this by holding down the power button for a few seconds.
Fixing the issue
Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to fix the problem. One of the best options is to reinstall the Spotify app. You can also try running it as an administrator.
The other good thing about reinstalling the Spotify app is that it will automatically update the application. You can also manually update the application through Spotify Settings.
Similarly, the Spotify app might be erratically performing when you are trying to play a song. This is probably caused by a software bug or corrupted files. You might also be able to fix the issue by adjusting your firewall settings. You can also test your Wi-Fi connection.
Hopefully, Spotify will release a fix for the Now Playing bar problem soon. If not, you might have to resort to restarting the app or reinstalling it.
However, you can also fix the problem by disabling hardware acceleration. This is especially important for Android users.
In addition, you can try checking your Wi-Fi connection and muting the volume. This may sound like a silly suggestion, but you can’t play a song with no sound.
Another trick to fix the Spotify Now Playing bar problem is to clean your SD card. This may fix your problem temporarily. However, you may not be able to do it.
If you are still having problems, it is best to use a third-party tool such as DownDetector.
