Spotify for Android allows users to create shortcuts to favorite bands playlists and albums on their mobile home screen. Exclusive to the Android version, the ideal resource for users who want to quickly start a personal playlist or who want to save new albums to remember to listen to later. When you touch the shortcut, Spotify starts in the playlist, thus speeding up the action to listen to the music through the app.
To test the feature, we used a Moto C Plus with Android 7.0 (Nougat) system. However, the function is only available for tablets and smartphones with newer versions of Android.
