The leading music-streaming service Spotify today refreshed its iPhone and iPad app on App Store with native display support for iPhone X. The Spotify Music app for iOS now takes full advantage of all the pixels available on the 5.8-inch iPhone X display.

Apps that have not been specifically optimized for the handset’s 2,436-by-1,125-pixel resolution screen run normally, but are letterboxed with black bars at the top and bottom rather than being extended to the very top and bottom of the screen.

On a related note, Spotify announced today it’s acquired Stockholm-based Soundtrap, which has a web-based collaborative music recording and production studio for artists.

The Soundtrap service will continue to operate as usual.

Spotify Music is available at no charge on App Store.

    It’s about damn time

    I think developers have learned to wait to see how well a new display is adapted before spending time and effort to update to it. They waited to see how well the Retina displays would be adapted and fell way behind. They may not be as gun shy now, and after seeing the demand for the iPhone X, I think we’ll see a lot more of this and faster than in the past.

      Most of the top apps were updated on day one. Spotify is considered to be one of those top apps but they are always dead last to update.

    OMG stack the potential x million headlines
    “App x is now notch-compliant”
    How deep did we sink ?
    It will probably require an even larger notch to catch future attention…
