Spotify Releases Free Mobile Radio in the U.S.

For months, Spotify listeners were dying to get their hands on an iPad version of the music streaming service. Finally, that day arrived — and the service was $9.99 a month. Thankfully, the company has released a free version of its iPad and iPhone app to listeners in the U.S.  Much like Pandora’s, Spotify’s radio app offers continuous music on personalized radio stations.
Here’s how it works:
  • You can create streaming radio stations from single songs, playlists, albums, or artists.
  • There are 16 million tracks in the catalog to choose from.
  • You can create as many stations as you want, with an unlimited amount of listening time.
  • You personalize your stations in real time by “liking” the tracks to hear similar music.
  • The recommendation engine makes suggestions based on what other people are listening to on Spotify.
  • If you “like” a track, it’ll automatically be saved to your playlist so you can listen to it later.
  • The app is also social: you can look at your friends’ playlists and create radio stations based on their tastes.
