Spotify introduces lock screen widget for iPhones

With iOS 16, Apple brought widgets to the lockscreen on iPhones. Now, months later, Spotify has introduced the lockscreen widget for iOS.
The lock screen widget of Spotify will be available to all users running iOS 16 and later. However, users need to have the latest version of Spotify.
Announcing the lockscreen widget for iOS, Spotify said in its blog, “The new iPhone Lock Screen widget is available to all users. To add the Spotify Lock Screen widget to your iPhone Lock Screen you will need to have iOS 16 or later. If you’re not seeing the option to add the Spotify widget to your Lock Screen, make sure to update Spotify to the latest version in the App Store.”
Earlier, Spotify users had to use third-party apps to create widgets. But now, they can use the first-party Spotify widget. To put a widget on the lock screen, press and hold the lock Screen, then click the Customise button and tap the Lock Screen option. Now, select Add Widgets, choose Spotify from the list, and tap the widget.
To add Spotify’s Recently Played widget on the home screen, long press the home screen and tap the ‘+’ icon. Now look for Spotify in the menu, and tap the “Add Widget” button below the widget. There are two sizes available for the widgets.
The Spotify widget on the lock screen will open directly without the need to unlock your phone and search for the app icon or widget. This can be convenient if you need to access your music or podcasts while you’re out quickly and about or driving.
While Spotify has brought the lock screen widget, and there are also two home screen widgets, it still has not yet introduced built-in compatibility with HomePod. Unlike Apple Music, one cannot fully use Spotify using Siri on the speaker. Additionally, Spotify does not support AirPlay 2.
