Spotify's Free Tier Now Offers (Some) On-Demand Music on Mobile

Spotify

Spotify calls the new feature as "assisted playlisting".

Users will get unlimited access to 750 tracks from 15 top playlists (including Discover Weekly). The company says these changes will help boost the number of users on its paid premium service.

When a user signs up, Spotify will ask them to select at least five artists that they like, so that the firm can build recommendations and playlists around those interests. Fifteen new on-demand playlists offer the ability to pick and play any track within our curated lists-without skipping tracks or waiting on shuffle to bring up the music you love. It'll be specific to each user; if a heavier Spotify user will have more cached.

Their exposure to new music, the company hopes will broaden their musical horizons while also encouraging them to pay for the premium service.

Photos Capture Special Moments From Barbara Bush's Funeral
The funeral service was Saturday at a church in Houston . 'It would have been exactly what Barbara Bush wanted, ' McGrath added. It is unclear what the two were discussing but they both briefly smiled and now the moment has gone viral on social media.

Spotify said it has also engineered the new free service to take up 75 percent less mobile data to draw in users who have limits on their cellular packages. Recommendation methods will be folded into in other sections of the app.

"We know it's the only way we're going to achieve our goal of getting billions of fans" chief R&B officer Gustav Soderstrom said as the press conference. Most recently, Spotify said it had 71 million paying subscribers and 90 million on its ad-supported tier as of December.

Spotify's free tier now offers access to shuffled playlists, but on-demand playback is kept behind the Premium paid tier.

Over in the world of music, it's much the same, and while Australian versions of services don't always have the ads, frequently they do, and they usually cut down on the features, as well. On the old version, there were five buttons (Home, Browse, Search, Radio, and Your Library). This will lead to reduced quality of the songs that are being streamed.

The music-streaming company is giving Spotify free customers access to certain features that were only available to those who subscribe to Spotify Premium. Initially wooed by its futuristic design, the two become quickly irritated when they realize it can't play Spotify or Pandora playlists. Do you use the free tier or are you a subscriber?

Spotify didn't forget to revamp its aging user interface.

While Spotify hasn't yet confirmed when it plans to enter India. This made the premium version of Spotify more appealing.
