Spotify's new Touch Preview feature is going to change the way people listen to new music. The music discovery tool addresses customer outrage after the music streaming company's redesign last year took away the ability to hear 30 second preview clips in the Discover section of the Spotify app.

Spotify Touch Preview is a small change to the user interface and also a global preview solution. Regardless of where you are in the mobile app, you can tap and hold to activate a 30 second music clip. From there, you can drag your finger through a list to a new song and the app will automatically play the next 30 second preview. You can also browse albums and playlists this way.
