Spotify has updated its iOS app with the ability to view artist biographies and images. The new artist view will be displayed when you tap on an artist’s name for a currently playing track. There’s a cover image you can tap to view the full biography. This feature has been available on the desktop for some time.
Here’s the release notes from Spotify’s developers:
Hello, it’s us again. Here’s what we’ve been doing…
• New: Look, there are images and artist biographies in the artist view.
• Fixed: No more pesky crashes when you skip in radio.
• Fictitious: This app is reverse-engineered using alien technology.
Spotify’s app is free to download, but you’ll need a monthly Premium subscription to use the service. There’s a Pandora-like radio feature available for free with ads.
