Spotify backs its new version with an iOS 16 lock screen widget to help users have a swift way to get to their music as they unlock their iPhone or iPad.

The app can also display album art of your recently played music right on your home screen.

Meanwhile, the new tool is available after the version 8.8.26 update, joining other features Spotify supports in iOS, like Now Playing, so iPhone listeners can have quick access to music controls.

Last month, Spotify launched a new feature called “Niche Mixes” to allow users to create their own personalized mixes based on just a few words of description in the Search tab.

You could type in an “activity, vibe or aesthetic,” the company notes, then append the word “mix” to generate the custom playlist.

The tech giant described this feature as “a set of personalized playlists that combines all that our Mixes offer in a playful way.”

“We’re giving listeners access to tens of thousands of Mixes unique to them based on, well, almost anything they can think of,” Spotify said in a blog post.
