Spotify Makes Big Changes: Here’s Everything You Need to Know

Spotify is soon making its biggest update in a long time, and this brings significant opportunities for all artists. In this article, we will cover everything you need to know about the music giant’s major changes.


Spotify Discovery Mode

Among the new Spotify updates we find Discovery Mode. This feature helps artists reach a larger audience. Then, songs added to this feature are distributed to more listeners through “Algorithmic Playlists” like Radio and through Autoplay (which plays songs after a playlist ends). Furthermore, all new streams that come from Discovery Mode, Spotify takes a 30% cut of the revenue. Spotify describes how this works in the following quote:

“A 30% commission is applied to recording royalties generated from all streams of selected songs in Discovery Mode contexts. Today those are Spotify Radio and Autoplay. All other streams of selected songs outside of Spotify Radio and Autoplay remain commission-free.”

Spotify Clips

You could say that Clips is Spotify’s own version of TikTok. Inside the app, artists will be able to upload 30-second videos. Currently, only selected artists have access, and the videos are uploaded to the artist’s profile. However, within a few months, more artists will gain access to this feature. Indeed this page is very similar to TikTok’s For You page. Adding this to your own Spotify profile can be a good way of improving it.

What Does This Mean for Artists?

These new features can mean a lot for all artists. For example, if artists use them correctly, it can lead to more followers and streams. However, iff they don’t use them, they won’t have the same opportunities to break through. We recommend all our artists to use Spotify’s new features as soon as possible! So, if you are among the first to test these features, you will have a good chance of being noticed.

More Changes to Come!

Spotify is working on some other small changes, such as new Promo cards. These features are not as important for artists and producers. Nevertheless, we believe that both Discovery Mode and Clips can be game-changers for the industry – so stay updated!
