OPPO and Spotify team up for more customized music experience

Oppo is teaming up with audio streaming platform Spotify, to create an all-new easy, and customizable music experience on OPPO smartphones through its latest ColorOS 13.

ColorOS 13 is Oppo’s new interface based on Android 13 and is being rolled out since mid-August this year. It now integrates Spotify allowing Oppo smartphone users to add some custom widgets to it that can be accessed quickly from their home screen. 

What this means is that listeners can now enjoy their favourite music, podcasts, and audiobooks with easier access and convenient control over the Spotify app on the home screen of their OPPO devices.

Listeners may register for and use the Spotify service including Smart Always-On-Display (AOD) which lets users know what Spotify content is playing simply by glancing at the AOD and double-clicking on the music control panel, without the need to wake the device up. The AOD integration also allows users to access and control the playback of their favorite audio content from Spotify and access Spotify content recommendations – all without unlocking the device.

There is also a new Shelf feature in ColorOS 13 that includes an in-built Spotify Card containing Spotify content recommendations and through which Oppo users have access to their favourite music on the Spotify app just a slide away. The Spotify widget can also be added to the ColorOS 13 home screen to provide quick and easy access to the Spotify app.

An alarm integration in the ColorOS 13 Clock app also enables users to wake up every morning to their favourite Spotify tracks, playlists, and podcasts.

“Our partnership with Spotify represents a new exploration into the possibilities of smartphone operating systems,” said Gary Chen, Head of Oppo Software Product. “Through smart, convenient, and human-centric features developed with our partners, we are bringing a more intelligent and efficient operating system to users, enabling them to spend more time enjoying music and the other most-loved features on the OPPO smartphones.”

Ian Geller, Global Head of Consumer Business Development at Spotify said, “At Spotify, we’re always working to offer our users the best listening experience out there. Through our partnership with OPPO, we aim to elevate the Spotify experience through Oppo ColorOS 13’s smart and human-centric features, delivering value for existing and new consumers of both brands”.

Oppo says ColorOS 13 has been designed for simplicity and comfort with its Aquamorphic Design. It features a series of innovative and intelligent features that include Multi-Screen Connect, Meeting Assistant, Smart AOD, and Home Screen Management. Based on the Android Operating System, Oppo says ColorOS provides exclusive, intelligent, and user-friendly experiences to over 500 million global monthly active users. It is available in 67 languages, including English, French, Spanish, and Hindi.
