Articles about Spotify
Spotify is a digital music service through which one can listen to songs and podcasts for free. Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, it was founded in 2006, but launched two years later. Currently one can access some over 50 million tracks on this international media services provider. To note, Spotify is a freemium service, which means basic features that come with automatic music videos or ads will not cost one anything. Meanwhile, one can get additional ones - offline listening and commercial-free listening – via paid subscriptions. It can be played on most devices, like Windows, macOS, and Linux computers, and iOS, and Android smartphones and tablets. Established by Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon, Spotify currently has 286 million subscribers, with 13 million paying for it.
