Apple has launched their iPads and watches, and in October they are going to launch the iPhone 12 which is pretty exciting for iPhone die-hard fans around the globe, Apple always updates the numeric value of the operating system whenever they are about to launch a new device.
So for the upcoming iPhone 12, they have launched ios 14 which has enormous numbers of features in there and that is pretty impressive Apple has always been impressive on showing their technologies to the world so the ios 14 has been launched and it has a feature which is that you can add the widget on your phone's home screen.
But now we are going to talk about one widget which is quite necessary if you are a music freak so it is about how to get Spotify at your home screen.
I'm getting to be showing you guys the way to get a free Spotify widget on ios 14, for the free Spotify widget what you want to try to first is open up the app store and what you would like to try to then attend search and sort in tune tracks that are "t-u-n-e-t-r-a-k-s" all one word hit search and this could be mentioned right here it was in beta now but now it's fully released within the app store so guys do tap on the download button right there and there we go now we've it now if you re-evaluate here on your home screen it'll first show up within the app library presumably so that's where you will find it.
When it's getting to open it will loads up some music it's getting to attend the center tab which is what we would like and you guys can see would like access to your apple music so just say okay and you'll choose apple music Spotify or last FM so it isn't only Spotify that this works with this is often super cool anyways.
If you guys have already got the Spotify application installed anyways once here you would like to scroll down and tap on agree and a bit like that when it's logged in so go back up there you'll see it says signed in anyways if you're going back up here you can see it shows the highest tracks currently available and you'll also just sort by artists or tracks and stuff like that but you are not going to really be using this part in the least so anyways what you would like to try to do is just x out of here and now it's getting to put our apps into edit home screen mode so let's re-evaluate here and you will be just getting to tap and hold edit home screen tap on the plus icon a bit like adding any other widgets.
Now you guys can see one for 2 track so there it's right over there like you do is tap thereon and you'll see they need one for apple music and it's going over they need one just Spotify so apple music and Spotify you'll add both if you would like to, I'm just getting to add the Spotify one so tap on add widgets and a bit like that we now have it now currently it isn't showing anything so what we gotta do is actually open up Spotify and play some music so I haven't used Spotify during a while I exploit title but Spotify i use here and there anyways I'm just going to enter play and let's examine okay so I'm playing some music immediately I'm just getting to play another song.
So anyways alright so let's go ahead and just keep it up playing this, you'll see immediately it doesn't show up or it does show up but if it stays not exposure for you then what you've got to try to to is again open up tune track and tap on rock bottom right and over here if you are going to scroll down you'll find a choice to refresh widgets now this may confirm that it works if it isn't really showing up anyways all you gotta do is tap on refresh widgets and hit close and also I'll a bit like the proper streaming servers that you simply guys are using over here so tap on Spotify and it also can customize the widgets but this is often a paid feature, unfortunately.
So I won't be showing you guys this because I know you guys keep it free up here on the channel but yeah you get all the app themes and icons complete widget customization so if I'm getting to return up here you guys can see I could choose different icons which is cool and monochrome inverted so I could also return oops let me return and I could also tap on themes and that they have different colors they could choose between also but I'm not sure if that's worthwhile anyway it's gonna exit out of here and you guys can see the widget is playing now this is not the simplest widget that we have immediately but it's just like the just one for Spotify so it's still cool to possess something show up on your home screen.
So all it does is show the album all cover the song name and also the artist and that's about it now I'm getting to tap on this it just exposes right here and so yeah what I like to recommend to you really use this is often just placed on your home screen I'm actually gonna move it to a different page on my home screen just because I don't love it on my last page anyways it's gonna move it so let's move it uh right here alright anyways once I even have right there okay so what you want to try to for this tiny trick that I'll be showing you guys is first to open up the shortcuts app show the shortcuts so let's go bring this up and that we want to do then is tap on the plus icon tap on add action tap on media and over there.
You would like to scroll down until you find where is it so keep it up scrolling down uh it is called skip forward so skip forward and skip back now you can add both of those and I'll show you guys the way to do this so I'm gonna go first add skip back so all I gotta do is tap right there and that I can see skip back to the start on iPhone anyways all I gotta do now's tap on next and name this.
So I'm just gonna name this back or whatever you would like because it doesn't matter anyway let's tap on done and I am also going to create another one so again add action let's return to media and this point I'm getting to proceed so you basically get some media controls right here which is super cool anyway skip forward and a bit like that just hit next and I'm gonna name this skip also I think I have already got this one so I'm just getting this skip two because this is often my second time making this so you guys will just have to name it to skip or whatever.
You would like anyways tap on done and exit out of here and now what I might do is open up the settings application scroll down over to accessibility and over here you would like to tap on touch and let's go all the way right down to back tap now you guys can see what I've been doing right here but anyways for the double-tap I'm getting to go tap right here and I am getting to choose let's plow ahead and scroll right down to the shortcuts so these are all the shortcuts that we added so I do have a bunch but anyways you want to scroll right down to those they made so for the double-tap.
So I'm just gonna return right there and let's go back up here so it's really cool so basically, every time I just double tap on the rear of my phone and my phone is quite shattered but it still works anyway let's go double-tap on the rear it's like just like that it will plow ahead and skip the song, so this is often a very cool feature to possess because quite brings that control so you've got a widget just on your home screen and if you do not want to play that song all you bought to try to do is double-tap and it'll attend subsequent song in order that is super cool and that I recommend for the triple tap just return song so again we will go back down to series shortcuts it should be within the b since that is what we named it and there it is back let's go tap thereon let's go and x out of there.
Now you guys can see for the double-tap I even have it as a skip and for triple-tap I even have it to travel back the track okay so when you have that set you'll attend x out of there I do not think I've Spotify premium but let me plow ahead and check out this but it does work I did test this out unless I did run out of skips but all right so uh seems like it did run that skip so discover the premium feature but it does work trust me on this so if I'm going ahead and double-tap right here it'll enter forward the track.
If you attend triple tap it'll go ahead and return a track okay so you guys will see the changes take effect up here you'll see there it's the boom and this is often super cool so it doesn't really have on-screen controls.
