Spotify’s additional features that will hopefully make it much easier to discover new music started to gradually roll out in late February within its web application, but today, the company has started rolling out those updates to its desktop application.
The update will add its new “Follow” tab on the left side bar in the desktop application after the application prompts you an update is currently available, which it will then install and restart to make the Follow tab available. The Follow tab replaces the not-so-often used People tab, which was just a list where you could view which Facebook friends were Spotify members. Once the Follow tab is available, you’ll be able to discover new music your friends as well as celebrities and a number of popular organizations are currently listening to.
As for the other two tabs, Discover and Collection, they have yet to be released, but we guess we’ll be happy with any updates with the service as long as discovering new music is made a lot easier.
