Not to fault the app, but expecting it to have every song you can think isn't realistic. There are lots of older tracks and independent music that aren't included. Fortunately, Spotify is testing the ability to let Android users import songs from their devices or PCs.
Wong's screengrabs depicted the ability to select folders, specific artists, albums, and songs that live outside of the Spotify app.
The move could be a big deal for Spotify, as users would have less of a need to have multiple music streaming apps.
Wong also noted that Spotify is testing a Save For Later option for podcasts and redesigning the library layout. The makeover would make podcast menus cleaner as well as create a playlist of songs you like the most.
In Spotify, podcasts episode listings are a bit bulky. Under the episode title and number, there's a text preview of what the episode is about. On podcast apps like Google Podcast, for instance, only the title is listed and how long the episode runs.
It wouldn't be a huge change, but it could cut down on scrolling time when you're looking for an episode.
