Part of Spotify's success is its ubiquity. You can access Spotify by launching the web player, by downloading the desktop apps (available for Chromebook, Linux, Mac, and Windows), or by installing one of the mobile apps (available for Android, iOS, and Windows Mobile). You can also find Spotify on TVs, set-top boxes, smartwatches, and home video game consoles. The desktop apps have an advantage over the web player and mobile apps in that you can use the former to play M4P, MP3, and MP4 audio files that are stored in your computer. This is a particularly cool feature for people who want to play all of their music streams and audio files from one central location. Unfortunately, the desktop app isn't compatible with M4A files. The Android app and iOS app, however, share an extra benefit. On mobile, Spotify has partnered with Genius, one of the web's most-popular lyrics sites, to offer Behind The Lyrics. This feature displays key lyrics (but not full lyrics!) as they're sung or rapped. There are no lyrics in the web or desktop apps. In addition, Behind The Lyrics delivers behind-the-scenes information, such as song facts or inspirations. It's a cool addition

Discover Weekly gets me hooked on music I've never heard before. This personalized playlist is issued once per week and can include new music from an artist I already like, or older tracks from unknown artists I might have missed. Spotify doesn’t actually know what I like. Spotify uses algorithms that basically say 'user X likes a song in category Y, therefore, user X may also like this other song in category Y'. Pretty Amazing Right? Spotify is truly everywhere. The user experience that this offers is a huge competitive advantage, and helps future-proof Spotify from losing to another product that is more convenient to access. No other music platform comes close to this level of integration. Even fighting a deep-pocket opponent like Apple Music, Spotify holds its ground by being a more accessible method of reaching your music. Spotify

Spotify is my go to music app. I started out using the free trial then switched over to a premium account once I realized that there was a discount for students. I love that you can also get Hulu and Showtime for free as a premium account holder. As for music I love the variety of music Spotify provides and how often it is updated. The app is easy to navigate and allows you to go offline (premium users)if you dont want to use your data. The only issue that I have been having is that sometimes the app randomly signs me out, an if I am in offline mode it will not allow me to log in again. This results in me having to uninstall the app and then reinstall to log back in. On top of that I have to re-download all the playlists I previously had downloaded. It doesnt happen often but when it does it's a minor pain. Still a really great app, and highly recommend!

It's a great media service with mostly everything you would want to listen to, on a beautiful app that works seamlessly on the phone and computer, and has an algorithm that honestly surprises me by how well it works. I do have Spotify premium, with the family plan which makes it even more worth it. I love the public playlists they release, and also the personal "Made For You" playlists that it creates for premium users like "Your Top Songs" and "On Repeat," which organizes what I like to listen to better than myself sometimes. It has a fun social aspect of displaying what your friends are listening to at the moment, with, of course, the great option for private sessions for when you need that.

I find Spotify to be so incredibly user friendly. I can build playlists, share playlists with friends, download music for when I don’t have service (I live in a rural area where my cell service drops some times), find entire albums old and new. The search feature is great and leads me to my desired song or artist quickly. I also love that it recommends music based on what I’ve been listening to. Also- no ads with a premium plan that my husband and I are on, so we basically have accounts independent of one another but again can share music. I love to see the music art, and also that some songs when selected display various facts about the artist and the song/lyrics while it plays. Very cool service, one I prefer over Apple Music and Pandora.

(+) - wide variety of music & even international music! - the ability to create & customize & collaborate on playlists - you can download playlists to listen to offline, which is perfect for flights - they even have podcasts - a family account is around $2-3/month. There’s also individual accounts with a student option, & i think those have included Hulu? The family plan is the cheapest, so you can just grab a couple friends to utilize this deal, which is what I do. (-) If you don’t have a paid account then the huge overload of ads + the inability to listen to songs you want in an order you want would make this a pretty terrible app

From music to podcasts, Spotify has a little bit of something for everyone! Much like Pandora that allows you to costumize your playliste, Spotify allows you to make playlists that are specialized to your tastes. But, unlike Pandora, Spotify allows you to not only customize your playlists but allows your to listen to podcasts from your favorite YouTubers, celebrities or your friends who have started a podcast. Spotify also allows you to listen to music from those musicians that may not be a hot recording artist and are just starting their career. Being a music lover, finding apps or websites that allows me to costumize songs that I personally like is more appealing rather than the radio. These apps and sites do not continue to play a hot hit song continuously to the point you just get tired of the song.

My favorite music streaming platform. It has a wide range of music from well-known classics to hidden gems. I love the wide availabilty of Japanese and anime music because I don't have to spend a ton of $$$ importing CDs from Japan. Though not all of the Japanese music (at least in the US version) is available due to licensing restrictions, so I do some importing but not a lot like before. I really like the combo plan with Hulu because it's a money saver for a college student like me. There's also podcasts available on Spotify which is great for people who listen to that as well as music.

I used to use Pandora for my music for awhile before my friend showed me spotify and it changed how I listened to music. Super easy to find all your favorite songs in one place. Buying spotify premium is totally worth it to get rid of commercials and be able to pick all the songs you want to listen to instead of constantly having to shuffle your music. Great suggestions for songs based on what you have listened to in the past and they have a bunch of already made playlists that update each week based on different genres of music. Fantastic app!

Love that I can find my music no matter what genre and decade. I’m a fan of the 60’s, the 70’s and 90’s. I like R&B, neo soul, jazz and Christian. I can also make a playlist depending on what I want to hear. Some days I want to hear upbeat and funky, other days I want to hear Christian and some days I want to hear my playlist that I’ve entitled “pissed”. Lol. I can also make playlists for my children. If you have a paid subscription, then you can avoid the commercials. Spotify is a great music streaming service. One of my favorites to listen to: Jill Scott - The Light of the Sun #spotify #music #jillscott #neosoul #randb #christian #funky #upbeat #playlist #children #subscription

It's pretty straightforward! It's been awhile since I first joined but I'm sure there's onboarding that asks for your preferences in music. There are tons of fun playlists out there as well as great podcasts. Once you start using it and saving all your favorite music, I recommend checking the "discover weekly" and "release radar" playlists. These are catered to you based on your tastes. It's one of the best features in my opinion!
