Install Spotify 0.9.10 – new Black Theme in Ubuntu

Spotify recently released an update to its native Linux client version to 0.9.10.x. This comes with a new stunning dark theme which was initially made available only to windows, mac and mobile devices. This release also comes with refreshed typography and rounded iconography.


According to Spotify Official blog

Our new design makes accessing your favourite music smoother than ever before. The new dark theme and refined interface lets the content come forward and ‘pop’, just like in a cinema when you dim the lights

Noticeable changes made

  • Local files playback now works with libavcodec54
  • Track change notifications via libnotify
  • OpenSSL is now version 1.0.x

Available only on 64bit

Unfortunately, this release is only available for 64bit OS for now. The 32bit version should be made available as soon as testing is done and confirmed stable.
