As we’ve rounded up all week, a number of third-party apps have rolled out powerful iOS 14 home screen widgets. Spotify itself has not updated its iOS app with widget support, but there is a third-party app available that brings Spotify widgets to your iOS 14 home screen.
One of the tent pole features of iOS 14 is home screen widget support. A number of Apple apps support home screen widgets, including the Apple Music app. The Music app widget is available in three sizes, so you can easily view recently played songs, albums and playlists on your home screen.
Since iOS 14 was released on Wednesday, many Spotify users have encouraged the company to add home screen widgets to its iOS application. So far, Spotify has not released an app update with home screen widgets, but the third-party app TuneTrack aims to address this issue.

How to add a Spotify widget to your iOS 14 home screen
TuneTrack is a third-party app that integrates with Apple Music, Spotify and Last.fm. The app is described as a way to easily track your music habits, create custom playlists and more. Over the last few days, however, TuneTrack has exploded in popularity due to its Spotify home screen widget for iOS 14 users.
TuneTrack is a free download from the App Store. Once you’ve installed the app, you can open it and sign in with your Spotify account. After signing in with your Spotify account, go back to your iOS 14 home screen, long press to enter jiggle mode, and then tap “+” at the top right.
Browse the list of applications you have installed with widget support until you find TuneTrack. From there, you can easily add the TuneTrack Spotify widget to your iOS 14 home screen and place it whoever you want. The Spotify Now Playing widget is updated every five minutes, or you can force an update in the TuneTrack app in the Settings menu.
And finally, TuneTrack also offers an Apple Music Now Playing widget, so if you do not like the default setting of Apple, you can also try TuneTrack.
