Spotify finally rolls out Android 13 media player support

Earlier this month, the Spotify beta app version 8.7.92.115 for Android got support for the Android 13 media player. However, only beta users who are enrolled in the Spotify beta program on the Play Store had access to the feature, and others had to wait until the feature went public. Thankfully, Spotify is rolling out Android 13 media player support via the stable channel.

With the latest Spotify app version 8.7.92.521, all users of the music streaming platform will get support for the Android 13 media player. With this new media player, Spotify gets a bunch of visual changes. Notably, you will see rounded square buttons for Play/Pause. Moreover, the Previous and Next buttons are placed on either end of the seek bar.

You can also add two buttons of your choice, while by default, you get to Shuffle and Like buttons in place. If you are listening to a podcast, then Spotify will replace the Previous/Next track button with the 15-second Rewind/Forward buttons. Also, the Shuffle and Like buttons get replaced with Speed Up The Playback and Add The Podcast To Your Library buttons.

Sadly, Samsung Galaxy smartphones still don't use Android 13's media player design in One UI 5.0. While Spotify, just like other third-party media apps, was a bit late to join the bandwagon, it now joins the list with other popular apps such as YouTube, YouTube Music, Google Podcasts, SoundCloud, and Shazam that support the new media player design.
