Alongside a new interface, music-streaming service Spotify has also introduced a way to save music to a personalised collection.

In response to user feedback, Spotify now has a new interface, featuring a darker colour scheme and a different typeface to before. The new look will appear progressively across desktop, app and web implementations of the streaming service. If you are using the desktop version, a notification will appear in the top panel asking you to upgrade which will give access to the darker look.

As well as the redesigned interface, Spotify has also introduced the Your Music feature. Now, a Save button will appear alongside artists or albums, allowing you to create a customised collection that can be accessed any time from the navigation menu. It will let you sort your saved music by artist, album or song, as well as giving access to files stored locally on your device. Your Music will be available across all platforms, so if you save artists from the desktop they will be available on mobile, and vice versa.

The Browse feature has been overhauled to give more accurate suggestions based on interests and will be localised, according to Spotify. On top of existing music suggestions, there is music news and a series of playlists based around genres and moods.
