Spotify Now Supports iOS 16 Widgets

Spotify has announced a significant update to its iOS 16 system integration, adding widget support for the iPhone lock screen. With this update, users can now access their recently played tracks, playlists, albums, or podcasts with a single touch from the home and lock screens.

Before this update, Spotify had only essential support for what was playing, with no support for iOS 16 widgets. However, the latest firmware, 8.8.26, now allows users to add Spotify widgets to the home and lock screens like any other widget.

The new features are available for all Spotify users on iOS 16, and users are encouraged to update to the latest firmware for the best experience.
