Spotify announced on Monday the launch of the “What's New” feature.
It was designed so that "you never miss the latest news from the shows and artists you follow," promises the streaming platform on its blog.
Officials explained that they started from the observation that it was sometimes difficult to locate among more than 50,000 hours of new content posted on Spotify every day.
The tool is presented in the form of a news feed updated in real time, as new files arrive.
To display the works of artists that interest them, users must go to their pages.
All they have to do is click on “Follow” to integrate this source into the “What's New” tool.
