Spotify is a music haven. The app features millions of songs from a wide range of genres. In addition to offering myriad varieties of music, the app also offers a host of features that enhance its functionality multifold.
Spotify is the one stop solution for music lovers, regardless of the kind of genre they seek. From classical and folk to indie pop, rock and world music, this app offers it all. Users can also easily spot their favorite musicians, singers and bands and listen to favorite tracks.
Spotify comes in three versions – free, unlimited and premium. All the three versions offer unlimited music. However, they vary in terms of features and cost. The Free and Unlimited versions can be played only on desktops and laptops. The Premium version offers multi-device compatibility. It works on computers, mobiles, tablets and home entertainment systems. Users can download songs and listen to them offline as well. Unlimited and Premium versions do not feature ads.
Using Spotify, users can search through the song lists and hit the play button to play songs instantly. Browsing through the collections of artists, celebrities and friends lets users find new music.
Users can build their personal collections and create playlists. If users find and like a playlist that is created by someone else in the community, they can add it to their own. Music lists can be created for different occasions, moods and interests. For example, there can be a party list, a workout list, a “beat the blues” list and so on.
Sharing is an excellent feature offered by the app. It has been integrated with social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Users can share songs and playlists on their blogs and through email as well. Spotify also has a radio feature that plays unlimited songs continuously.
The app comes with a special feature for musicians as well. Musicians can upload their records and tracks on the app. They receive $0.004 every time a user plays their song.
The Free version is obviously free. The Unlimited version comes at $4.99 per month. The Premium version comes for free for a 30 day period. On the 31st day, users have to pay for the one month of free access, which amounts to $9.99.
Users who do not want to pay can cancel their subscription within 30 days. However, users are required to provide valid payment details before the free trial period begins. The trial period is activated once the payment details are verified. On cancellation, the details are deleted from records and user’s confidentiality is not breached.
