The evolution of music has taken us to some weird places. From recording music on cassettes to burning CDs and listening to them on our Discman, on to MP3s and now live streaming, we’ve experienced it all! In the world of music streaming, one name is top competition – Spotify. Whether in Malaysia or anywhere around the world, Spotify is known to be a fast and easy way to get any song, tune, or soundtrack with the access of internet or Wi-Fi.
Know your music provider
Before you use a service, you have to know some information about the company. The same goes for your music provider. For a start, Spotify is known worldwide and has headquarters around the globe such as Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Canada, Singapore, Turkey, Hong Kong, and Mexico. Spotify was created to bring the best music of your choice straight to your ears.
Originally from Sweden, Spotify is the biggest streaming service that offers music, podcasts, and video streaming. Since 2008, it has provided its millions of users easy and affordable access to music on their phones, computer, and other devices. There is a vast selection of tracks on Spotify that is right at your fingertips. With that, it’s easy to select the music you want to listen to, whether you’re working in the office, working out or relaxing.
How Spotify works is simple in theory. There are a few forms of Spotify you can use; desktop app, mobile app, on your gaming console, tablet, or literally any gadget of your choice. For now, there are two versions of Spotify you can use through these mediums – Spotify Free and Spotify Premium.
Spotify Free & Spotify Premium
As soon as you download Spotify in app form or on your desktop, you automatically are given Spotify Free. Spotify Free and Premium both work in the same way. The only difference is that Spotify Free has advertisements that take up much of your listening time. These ads can be particularly annoying and you will only get a limited number of skips (of ads) per session before the app forces you to listen to it. Advertisements also hinder your playlist from a smooth transition from song to song. This could be detrimental if the playlist is used for special occasions such as a wedding or birthday party.
Hence, we recommend that you use Spotify Premium.
Benefits of using Spotify Premium
There is a huge competition among music streaming services. So why choose Spotify over the rest? Here are some benefits that separate it from its competition.
Spotify is a one-stop shop for all your music, podcast, and video streaming needs. It boasts features similar to that of its competitors such as a library of millions of tracks and a large number of playlists made by users. Not to mention, it enables users to access video content and internet radio as well as podcasts.
New music on demand
What sets Spotify apart from its competitors is how it leverages data to provide a more personalized listening experience to its users. It uses cutting-edge technology that learns and sorts data to analyze your listening habits and provide recommendations like playlists and song suggestions based on the artists or genres you’re frequently listening to. A feature that exemplifies the use of this technology is Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist. It displays 30 new songs you’ve never heard of before but might be of interest to you. The songs in the playlist are picked based on the tracks you’re currently listening to. For example, if you’re always listening to pop music, Spotify will add a fresh pop track on the Discover Weekly playlist that might suit your musical taste.
Customizing and sharing
Spotify playlists offer a huge part of the user’s listening experience. Users sort through all playlist to see which one they like. They can also customize their playlist and can share it with their friends so that good music is propagated. With that, Spotify enables sharing on user playlists which is one of the best ways to enjoy music.
