Spotify Review

There are plenty of websites that allow you to listen and/or download music. Spotify is one of them. Basically, Spotify is a commercial music streaming service that provides digital rights management-restricted content from record labels (including Sony, Universal, EMI and Warner Music Group).

You can search the music by artist, album, genre, playlist or record label. The thing is that “regular” users can only listen to music while “premium” ones can download it (after they pay a premium subscription fee).

Spotify is a music library with more than 20 million songs. Users can also create numerous playlists and edit them with other users, if they want to. A useful feature here is the fact that Spotify is able to remove duplicates from the playlist you and other users created.

If you’re familiar with Last.fm, then you probably know that Spotify does not automatically create preference-based playlists like Last.fm, but it integrates with this site. This integration allows Spotify users to send songs from Spotify to their Last.fm account and “scrobble” them. Scrobbling allows Spotify to learn which songs or artist users listen to the most.

Also, another useful feature of Spotify is the radio. A radio feature is available for both regular (free) and premium accounts. The radio creates a random playlist of songs based on specified genres and decades.
