Spotify is an innovative, new, music interface that allows users to search and listen to music for free. Featuring never-before options like sharing play-lists with friends, listening to music with it on your mobile phone, and syncing effortlessly to social networks like Facebook, it’s an easy way to incorporate music into your every day life.
If you haven’t already joined, go to Spotify’s website to sign up with a username and password. After downloading the Spotify client on your computer, the fun begins!
Using the toolbar, search for any artist or song you feel like listening to. It will bring up covers, the originals, and every one who has played that song in the Spotify database. When you find one you like, simply star it! It will be easily accessible next time you want to hear it.
Connect With Friends
If you are like every other social-network user, connect Spotify with your Facebook. By doing so, you can choose which songs to share with your friends, see who else is on Spotify, and make collaborative play-lists.
Do this by hitting the “Import friends” button in the right upper corner of the Spotify application. Log into your Facebook and follow the directions – before you know it, all of your friends appear on the right hand side of your Spotify applications… from there you can view their favorites, their play-lists, etc.
Once you are connected with your friends on Spotify, create play-lists they can subscribe to. Every time a new song is added, they are notified and can listen to what you are currently listening to!
Another great way to share over 15 million songs with your buddies is to use Facebook. By simply clicking the “Share on Facebook” in the left-hand corner of the song you are listening to, it will show up instantly on your feed. Adding a soundtrack to your Facebook for your friends and family has never been easier!
Choose a Membership That is Right For You
Spotify has really reasonable rates for unlimited music listening. From $4.99, you can listen to music streaming instantly on your computer or phone, with no advertisements. If the ads don’t bother you, stick to the free account! If you run out of music time, consider switching to a premium account to keep listening.
Add a soundtrack to your life, wherever you are. Whether on-the-go with your mobile phone, or on the computer, the 15 million tracks and counting are sure to leave you satisfied.
