If you are a Spotify fan and an iPad user, you must be aware of the struggle when you are working on some app and also want to browse through your playlists and stations to find the next track. You have to switch between the two apps which can be annoying if you have to do it quite often. This is why the latest Spotify update is a must install for you as the team has finally added the much-requested multitasking support.
Spotify version 22.214.171.1246 update is the one that you will need on your iPad. The multitasking support will allow Spotify users to make use of Split View and Slide Over functionalities. The first feature is about using two apps simultaneously and side-by-side without having to jump between them. It also gives you the freedom of adjusting the size of the app's multi-tasking window depending on your need or preference.
As for Slide Over, it allows you to keep using one app as you do usually which is the full-screen view. On top of that app, you can open another app that basically overlays and can be panned around. To use this, you will have to add Spotify to the app dock and then access the dock by swiping up while using the app you are working on. Next step is to tap and hold on the Spotify app icon and drag it to the main interface. This way, you can access the app without having to exit the app you are primarily working on.
These new Spotify multitasking functionalities on the iPad have been rolled out for everyone around the world. The only thing you need is an iPad running iOS 9 or higher and latest Spotify app version.
