After years of holding out and playing coy on the issue, Spotify is finally adding Split View and Slide Over modes to its iPad app. These features have been around for years on the iPad, yet Spotify held off on adding it for some reason or another, but now that it is here, it is most welcomed.

The feature was first spotted by a Reddit user and then Spotify confirmed the new features in a statement to The Verge.

We can confirm Split View for Spotify is now available to all iPad users. Our goal is to continuously improve the Spotify experience across platforms.
