Spotify Launches New Version Of Windows/Mac App – Brings Playlist-Sased Radio, Post To Tumblr & More

Spotify has announced tons of new features to its application on Windows and Mac OS, while it rolls out Version 0.8.3 today. The new features include:

  • Ability to listen to radio stations based on a playlist or an album: When users are on any album or a playlist they can click on Start Playlist Radio or Start Album Radio to listen to similar music using Spotify Radio.

  • Instant Search: Instant search, made popular by Google’s search engine has made its entry to Spotify app. This will let users hover over results in the search suggestion drop-down, or use the arrow keys to navigate between them, they’ll render automatically in the main view.

  • Sharing made easier: Users can now right click on any album, playlist or track and select “Copy Embed Code” to get embeddable HTML codes for users to easily post Spotify Play Buttons on their website or blog.

  • New Sharing options: Spotify has not only made it easier to embed a song but has also added new sharing options. Users can now share any music content from Spotify directly to their Tumblr, and get a shortened link for Twitter.

Earlier this month, Spotify launched its iPhone and iPad app. Spotify, which was available only in US, is now available in 12 other countries including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK.

The update will be rolled out to users, but the impatient ones can download newest version of the app from Spotify website and enjoy the new features.
