Swedish auto streaming platform Spotify has added new features to its app. Users will now see new options for text resizing, buttons with the increased readability, and a beta for the podcast transcripts.
These three new features will be made available in the coming weeks and will be rolled out for both Android and iOS users.
As the company is introducing auto-generated podcast transcripts, which will allow the users to read the text of the specific podcasts on their mobile phones either with or without sound.
The users will be able to scroll and navigate the feature quickly through specific episodes and they can tap on any written paragraph to start playing from that point.
However, the feature is currently being made available for only Spotify Original and Spotify Exclusive Podcasts users.
The company also confirmed that the transcript feature will be available for other podcasts in the future as well.
In a Blog Post, the company mentioned that enabling users is here to increase the text size in the app, as it will improve the overall navigation of the app and giving listeners better control to personalize their experience.
The iOS users can adjust the text size by going to the Settings section > Accessibility and then selecting “Display & Text size”. Users will tap on the “Larger Text” for larger font options and drag the slider to select the font size which they want.
The music streaming app also said that the upcoming update will also change the layout of the buttons. It will offer a user-friendly experience for low-vision and virtually impaired users.
Spotify will soon allow their users to download the playlists and podcasts on Google Wear devices and for the Samsung Galaxy Watches.
