OPPO Teams Up with Spotify for Smart and Customized Music Experiences in ColorOS 13
Kenyan listeners can now enjoy music, podcasts, and audiobooks with easier access and convenient control over the Spotify app on the home screen of their OPPO device in Kenyan markets
Global leading technology company OPPO today announced a new partnership with popular audio streaming platform Spotify, to create an all-new easy, and customizable music experience on OPPO smartphones through its latest ColorOS 13 Android-based Operating System.
With the Spotify app fully integrated with many new smart features in ColorOS 13, Kenyan listeners can now enjoy music, podcasts, and audiobooks with easier access and convenient control over the Spotify app on the home screen of their OPPO device in Kenyan markets where listeners may register for and use the Spotify service. This includes:
Smart Always-On-Display (AOD): Kenyan Spotify listeners have a whole new way to keep their music, podcasts, and audiobooks at their fingertips. They can now 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 favourite audio content from Spotify and access Spotify content recommendations - all without unlocking the device.
Shelf: The new Shelf feature in ColorOS 13 includes an in-built Spotify Card containing Spotify content recommendations and through which Kenyan OPPO users have access to their favourite music on the Spotify app just a slide away.

Clock1: An alarm integration in the ColorOS 13 Clock app enables users to wake up every morning to their favorite Spotify tracks, playlists, and podcasts.
