OPPO announced today a new partnership with Spotify to create an all-new simple and customizable music experience on OPPO smartphones via its latest ColorOS 13 Android OS.
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 can register for and use the Spotify service, thanks to the Spotify app being fully integrated with many new smart features in ColorOS 13. This includes the following:
Smart Always-On-Display (AOD): The AOD provides Spotify listeners with a completely new way to access their music, podcasts, and audiobooks. Spotify users can now see what Spotify content is currently playing by looking at the AOD and double-clicking on the music control panel without having to wake up the device. Users can also access and control playback of their favourite audio content from Spotify, as well as access Spotify content recommendations, without unlocking the device.
Shelf: ColorOS 13’s new Shelf feature includes an in-built Spotify Card with Spotify content recommendations, allowing users to access their favourite music on the Spotify app with a single slide.
Home Screen Widgets: The Spotify widget can be added to the ColorOS 13 home screen to provide quick and easy access to the Spotify app.
Clock: The ColorOS 13 Clock app includes an alarm that allows users to wake up every morning to their favourite 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.”
ColorOS 13 is designed for simplicity and comfort with its Aquamorphic Design and includes a number of smart and intelligent features such as Multi-Screen Connect, Meeting Assistant, Smart AOD, and Home Screen Management. ColorOS, which is based on the Android operating system, offers unique, intelligent, and user-friendly experiences to over 500 million global monthly active users. It comes in 67 different languages, including English, French, Spanish, and Hindi.
