Spotify (Adding Social Features)
Spotify is a leading music streaming service with a mission to help people listen to whatever music they want, whenever they want, and wherever they want.

The Objective: 
• To design social features for Spotify’s mobile app
• To follow Spotify’s existing design patterns
• To smoothly integrate the new features into the current app for a seamless experience

This is a speculative project, and I am not affiliated with Spotify.
I took all my findings from the research phase in order to create this persona, Tyler. Throughout the rest of the project I used this persona in order to help me make sure that all my design decisions are focused on Spotify’s core users.
User Flow 
After facilitating a group brainstorming session and coming up with a multitude of ideas, I created a product roadmap in order to prioritize which features I would design. I then created a user flow which helped me identify which screens and UI elements were needed to implement the new features. 
High-Fidelity Wireframes 
I created these wireframes in Sketch, based on Spotify's existing mobile UI. This helped give a clear idea of how the exactly the interface would look and function during the testing phase of the design. 

Added Features 
-Current Mood Survey  
-QR Code Sharing
-Live Listening Session
Revisions after Usability Testing 
After doing a series of guerrilla testing with Spotify users. I made the following changes. 
-Making the share option more accessible. 
-Increase functionality through a quick option to pass the remote
UI Kit
While I was designing these social features I maintained a UI Kit in order to document all the UI elements and patterns for future reference. (All icons were created from scratch inside Sketch)
