How to Design a Music Player App – A Lesson From The Giants1

Apps like Pandora, Spotify, Soundcloud, etc. are popular due to the convenience they bring to the users. If you want to create a music player application, it’s good to get some insights into the UX of popular music streaming applications. Let’s take two giants – Spotify and Apple Music for example, and see how their core component (player) works.

There’s an obvious contrast between these two apps. Both the apps highlight the visuals but have a different color scheme. Apple Music is predominantly white while Spotify goes with the dark color. With Apple Music, the volume bar eats up most of the space. (Users can adjust the volume using buttons on the phone – Major facepalm for Apple Music!). On Spotify, there are more options like skip, play, repeat, etc. available.
