How would you like to get a notification when Taylor Swift drops her new album? What about when Lil Nas X drops a new song? Well with Spotify, it is super easy to do just that. You can opt to get push notifications or email notifications for new music, and we’ll show you exactly how to do that in this tutorial about Spotify.

Spotify’s “What’s New” Feed

Spotify has a “What’s New” feed that you can access at the top of the home screen. Just tap on the bell and you’ll see what’s new there.

This feed is exactly what it sounds like, it shows you what is new. So it’ll show you when new music from artists or bands that you follow are released. And it’ll also tell you when new episodes of podcasts you follow are released. So you can easily jump into your favorite podcast when something new is released.

You also have the option to sort it by music, or by podcasts. This is especially useful if you follow a lot of people and shows.
