Spotify said giving users more control over their music might encourage them to become paid subscribers. Some of the new features include Spotify's 15 most popular playlists including the Discover Weekly for on-demand playback.
Moreover, Free on Spotify also allows users to personalize their experience on the platform.
Specifically, Free on Spotify is getting 15 new on-demand playlists that let users pick and play any track without skipping or waiting on shuffle.
By proactively caching songs based on past listening and optimizing the streaming process, Spotify says its new Data Saver feature will save up to 75 percent of data usage, so you can listen without Wi-Fi and not worry about burning through your data plan.
Israel Air Force opts out of USA drill as Iranian threat looms
Zarif "is a foreign minister of a country that sent armed drones into Israel and fired missiles at Saudi Arabia", Netanyahu said. Iranian-Israeli relations have always been highly tense, as Tehran doesn't recognize Israel's right to exist.
By improving the free experience enough to keep people hooked, Spotify could effectively convince many more users to buy into their monthly subscription.
Spotify now has 70 million paid subscribers. You'll see the new features and have access to more music at the free level. The goal of this is for streaming and optimizing its media elements in order to make it more efficient.
The company went public last month, and at the time said it planned to boost its free offerings in an effort to both increase its advertising revenue, and to convert free users into paying subscribers of its premium tier, which does not have ads. Even after replacing Pandora from its departure in the local market, you still may be searching for a service that delivers music for free.
Recently listed on the New York Stock Exchange, the Sweden-based company also has a bit of a piracy problem, as a whopping two million free users are said to be constantly finding a way around mandatory ads.
Bill Haisten: If Russell Westbrook isn't great tonight, Thunder may be doomed
It is impossible to overstate the significance of Game 4, scheduled for 9:30 Monday night at Utah's Vivant Smart Home Arena. After the game, Westbrook was asked about how the Thunder allowed Rubio to play so well, and he responded with a guarantee.
He compared the service's free tier to broadcast radio in the 1990s, and how it drove business to record stores.
"Our customers always tell us that music discovery and listening is a personal experience, and we are enhancing the free experience with this in mind", said Babar Zafar, VP of Product Development at Spotify. The updated app now suggests songs that are similar to those they've already added right below the search bar, in the hope of making the playlisting process more streamlined.
The service is available in most of North and South America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and some parts of Asia. Unlimited data users who aren't anxious about data caps can just not use it to make sure Spotify isn't caching song data on their devices.
