How To Update Spotify On PC, Mac, And Phone

If you’re a Spotify user, it’s important to keep the app up-to-date with the latest version with new features. Not only will this ensure that you have access to all the latest features and bug fixes, but it can also help improve your overall experience using the app.

In this article, I’ll show you how to update Spotify on PC, Mac, and phones. The steps are pretty much the same across all platforms, so you shouldn’t have any trouble following along.

Follow the instructions below to update Spotify to the latest version.

How To Update Spotify On PC and Mac

It’s quite easy to update Spotify on your personal computer. It will only take you a few minutes, and the process is pretty much the same whether you’re using a Windows PC or a Mac.

Step 1: Check the top-right corner for a Blue Dot

After logging in your Spotify Account on your PC or Mac, check the top-right corner, right next to your profile for a blue dot. If there is a blue dot, then that means a Spotify update is available.

Step 2: Proceed to the Drop-down Menu

Click on your profile picture and a drop-down menu will appear. From the menu, you will see “Update Available. Restart Now” if an update is available. Click on it to initiate the update and Spotify will automatically shutdown and restart.

Step 3: Wait for Spotify to Restart

Usually, Spotify will automatically update from this point and the app will restart itself. However, if the app does not restart by itself, simply launch the app manually and you will have the latest version of Spotify. The steps are the same for both Mac and PC users.

How To Update Spotify On Your Phone

Updating Spotify on your phone is a pretty simple process. You can easily update it through the Google Play Store or the App Store.

1. Open the Google Play Store (Android) or the App Store (iOS)

These are the two official app stores for Android and iOS devices respectively. It can be found on your home screen or in your app drawer.

The next step is to type “Spotify” in the search bar. A list of results will show up, find the official Spotify app and click on it.

3. Tap on “Update” Next To The Spotify Listing

After clicking on the app, you will be taken to the Spotify listing page on the respective app store. On this page, you will see an “Update” button next to the listing. Tap on it to start updating Spotify.

And there you have it, you have successfully updated Spotify on your phone.

How to enable Auto-Update on your Mobile Device

You can enable the auto-update function for Spotify on your Android device (no iOS automatic updates for iPhone and iPad) if you want a more hassle-free alternative. Follow the steps below:

  • Open ‘Google Play’
  • Search for ‘Spotify’ and open the app within the play store
  • Click on the three dots (menu) in the top right corner
  • Select ‘Enable Auto Update’.

Make sure to also check ‘PlayStore Settings’ -> ‘Network Preference’ -> ‘Auto-Update Apps’ -> and check ‘Over Any Network’ if you’re using your mobile data or ‘Over Wi-Fi Only’ if you’re using the WiFi internet connection.

Final Thoughts

That’s all there is to it, updating Spotify is a pretty straightforward process. You can easily update it on your PC, Mac, or phone with the steps mentioned above. Note that the web player is automatically updated if you are using it because it is browser-based.
