OPPO today announced a new partnership with popular audio streaming platform Spotify, to create an all-new simple and customizable music experience on OPPO smartphones through its latest ColorOS 13 Android-based Operating System.
With the Spotify app fully integrated with many new smart features in ColorOS 13, listeners can now enjoy music, podcasts and audiobooks with easier access and convenient control over the Spotify app on the home screen of their OPPO device in markets where listeners may register for and use the Spotify service. This includes:
- Smart Always-On-Display (AOD)：The AOD gives Spotify listeners a whole new way to keep their music, podcasts and audiobooks at their fingertips. Spotify users can now know what Spotify content is currently playing simply by glancing at the AOD and double-clicking on the music control panel, without the need to wake the device up. The AOD integration also allows users to access and control playback of their favorite audio content from Spotify and access Spotify content recommendations – all without unlocking the device.
- Shelf：The new Shelf feature in ColorOS 13 includes an in-built Spotify Card containing Spotify content recommendations and through which users have access to their favorite music on the Spotify app just a slide away.
- Home Screen Widgets: The Spotify widget can also be added to the ColorOS 13 home screen to provide quick and easy access to the Spotify app.
- Clock: An alarm integration in the ColorOS 13 Clock app enables users to wake up every morning to their favorite Spotify tracks, playlists and podcasts.
“Our partnership with Spotify represents a new exploration into the possibilities of smartphone operating systems,” said Gary Chen, Head of OPPO Software Product. “Through smart, convenient, and human-centric features developed with our partners, we are bringing a more intelligent and efficient operating system to users, enabling them to spend more time enjoying music and the other most-loved features on the OPPO smartphones.”
Ian Geller, Global Head of Consumer Business Development at Spotify said, “At Spotify, we’re always working to offer our users the best listening experience out there. Through our partnership with OPPO, we aim to elevate the Spotify experience through OPPO ColorOS 13’s smart and human-centric features, delivering value for existing and new consumers of both brands”.
