The company Announced On Thursday, its new desktop and web design is based on “months of testing and research” and will offer a cleaner look, more controls, and features similar to those of is inserted in the mobile app.
First, the service updates the playlist controls by allowing you to upload images and write descriptions, and there are also a new search bar to find music episodes and podcasts. Meanwhile, a new drop-down menu will give listeners the ability to rank content. And the best of allme for those of us who often come across GooglIn g the lyrics of a song we listen to but can’t remember the title, the app is adding arrecently played list and the ability to edit your queue.
A new search bar has been moved to the left side of the navigation page, and users can now also go directly to the radio to search for an artist or song by selecting the “…” button.
