The Best Features of Spotify’s New ‘Your Library’ Tab

Spotify is overhauling the “Your Library” section of its mobile app with a new layout, better search filters, and shortcut options that should make sifting through your ever-expanding Spotify collection a lot less tedious.

New library sorting options

The Your Library tab also now consolidates your music collection and podcast subscriptions into a single, searchable list. The default view displays your entire music and podcast library at once, but you can also tap to view just albums, playlists, artists, or podcasts episodes. As always, you can arrange your collection alphabetically (including creator names), by recently played, or by recently added.

For Premium subscribers, the “Downloaded” toggle filters your collection down to just content saved on your phone—a helpful option when you’re dealing with poor connections or limited data plans. All of these new sorting options appear at the top of the Your Library tab.

You can also toggle a new grid layout that uses large thumbnails for artist photos, album covers, and podcast logos. It’s not fully replacing the standard list view, but the larger images make it easier to quickly spot an item from your library. Tap the grid icon in the upper-right of the library tab to toggle the new layout.
