Spotify…

2 Mar

A quick note to mention how unbelievably fantastic this piece of software is.

For those who don’t know, Spotify is a little piece of software genius which emerged from Scandanavia last year, that allows music lovers to listen to practically any song under the sun, by any artist, free of charge, at the minor inconvenience of a short advert every twenty minutes.

Spotify, in my eyes is the future of music, it will seriously give i-Tunes a run for it’s money, allowing users to find what they want to listen to, instantly.

No downloads, no hassle, and most importantly, no cost.

Another fabulous feature of Spotify, is the collaborative playlist option, allowing users to send it to a friend so they can both add tracks to the same playlist, a great way of sharing music, and exploring new genres.

With deals with major record labels, and a number of independent ones, Spotify seems to be the sought-after piece of software right now.

Spotify will be a God-send for smaller bands hoping to make a name for themselves, with a recommendation system with each artist, pointing users in the way of bands they perhaps may never heard of, amongst bigger names.

Spotify will also play a large role in beating music piracy, with the need to download music at an all-time low, why spend hours searching for illegal downloads when you can access the music you love, effortlessly?

Needless to say, Spotify is causing quite a stir, and rightly-so.

A great piece of software, for any music lover.

    I actually love it. Although I haven’t come across an advert yet… maybe I’ll change my mind. I will update you on this matter.

    Glad I could be of help. Adverts appear every 20 minutes or so, straight after a song; but the beauty of Spotify is that the next song comes straight after the advert, so after a while, you learn to barely notice them. :]
