This afternoon an event is taking place in New York where the news of the new Spotify free for mobile . And is that this giant of streaming music reaches a figure of more than 90 million free users, so they have considered that it was time to take care of this group of people a little.
And is that contrary to what happens with the Premium version of the app, Spotify free had since 2014 without receiving any time, which, in a world like the mobile platforms, is a long time. Many people start being a free user, and that is why from Spotify they have considered that it is necessary to offer more to make your product even more tempting and increase the number of users who switch to the paid version.
Until now, the free version of Spotify did not let us choose the song we wanted to listen to, being limited to the random lists offered by the application. now Spotify offers a total of 15 playlist , among which are some of the most popular such as Daily Mix, Weekly Discovery, Daily Top Hits or Radar of new features, but with the possibility to listen to each song as many times as we want , and with a total number of available music that approaches 40 hours. That is, every day, we will have 40 hours of music at our disposal.
And is that Spotify is aware that it is an instrument for musical discovery, and what better way to get to sane with the record labels and allow us to listen as many times as we want that new song that has gotten into our heads.
Another new feature of Spotify free for mobile phones would be the PlayList assisted, which is nothing more than a recommendation system based on all the playlists that we have created previously, and which aims to add new songs to our playlists.
Spotify does not forget about data rates, and that’s why it has created a new mode of low consumption, that uses compression for songs to use up to 75% less data than before. It will be necessary to prove it to know if there is notable loss or not of quality in the same ones, but of course, it will be very welcome for those moments in which we do not have WiFi at hand.
