Spotify Music Sharing

Prompt

To redesign and optimize the way music is shared on mobile, or the“Share Flow”, by:

  1. Supporting Spotify’s new Activity Feed feature

  2. Simplify existing flow & fix any bugs

Analysis

In order to understand the problem, check out the way the "share flow" previously functioned and a breakdown of how users could share music in the Spotify App.


Iterations of Share Flow

Out of countless filled whiteboards and paper prototypes, here is a collage of some mid-fidelity mocks I made. 


Usability Testing

This is one example out of many rounds of usability testing and iterations on the design. To usability test I used Flinto and Lookback, tested about 8 people per round, and reported the results to my team.


Final Flow Examples

This is the final design that shipped in the Spotify app in the fall of 2014. Though they have since removed the "Activity Feed" feature, this design is still in the app today!
