Spotify is introducing a new and improved “plus” button in place of its heart icon
The heart icon on Spotify will soon be replaced by a “plus” button that lets you save music and add songs to particular playlists. In a blog post, the music streaming app noted that in order to save a song or podcast to your library and then add it to a playlist of your choice, you will now need to tap the new “plus” icon twice.
As it appears that Spotify has been testing the change since the latter part of last year, some users already have the combined “plus” button on their app. The Spotify app used to have a “heart” icon that could be clicked to like a song and save it to your library. It also had a separate “add to playlist” button that was hidden within the app’s three-dot menu.
This new “plus” button allows you to not only save songs and podcasts to your library or other playlists, but also add entire albums, playlists, and audiobooks, as Spotify pointed out. When the content has been saved, the button will change to a green checkmark. It is now available worldwide on Android and iOS and will be available to all Spotify users in the “coming weeks.”
