Spotify for Android allows users to create shortcuts to playlists and albums of favorite bands on the home screen of the phone. Exclusive to the Android version, the feature is ideal for users who want to quickly start a personal playlist or who want to save new albums to remember to listen to later. By tapping the shortcut, Spotify starts in the playlist, streamlining the action to listen to the songs through the app.
To test the feature, we use a Moto C Plus with Android 7.0 (Nougat) system. However, the feature is only available for tablets and smartphones with newer versions of Android.
Check out how to create shortcuts to your favorite playlists and albums on Spotify for Android.
