Now you can choose songs yourself, but it's not completely open.
Spotify has revealed an improvement of service for those who do not pay and a few other improvements for everyone.
Somewhat greater freedom of choice
For the free version of mobile, the listener no longer desires to listen to random songs - instead, one can choose a song as long as it is found on one of the 15 custom playlists (Daily Mix and Release Radar).
How much music does it really do? Around 750, again 40 hours of music. Clearly, you are not, but it is far better than the alternative.
Two other nice improvements
In addition, listening to song recommendations based on their own playlists.
Another improvement is a new mode that cuts the bandwidth by up to 75 percent, saving you money on the data plan and frustration for those on the wrong network.
This says Spotify
Music brings people across markets, age, background, language, preferences, political directions and income levels. We in Spotify believe in music for everyone - and today we are one step closer to making this a reality by launching a new, improved and more personal way to discover music - completely free.
The new ad-based Spotify is a natural step for us who constantly works to develop the service in line with the needs of our users. The new version is being rolled globally to Spotify users on iOS and Android. Free on Spotify gets new mobile design and includes more new features, which will make the listening experience more tailored to what each consumer wants to listen to.
"Our customers constantly tell us that discovering and listening to music is a personal experience, and we are now improving the Free on Spotify experience with this in mind," said Baba Zafar, VP of Product Development in Spotify. "This is the beginning of an evolution for Spotify and we will continue to improve our products according to what customers are looking for. This is not just about giving users a more tailored Free on Spotify experience, but also giving them more control over the actual listening experience, so they can easily find and stream their favorites anytime and anywhere. "
We want all our users to have more control over what they are listening to so that they can discover new artists and find back to old favorites. 15 new on-demand playlists provide the option to select and play any song in a curated playlist, without skipping tracks or waiting for shuffle to find out if you want to listen. These on-demand lists become unique based on the taste of each user, and can contain lists like RapCaviar, Viva Latino, Ultimate Indie and Alternative R & B as well as personal playlists like Discover Weekly, Release Radar, and Daily Mix.
Free on Spotify gives users easy access to favorite songs, and discovering new music is easier. The service is even more suited to your taste. When you become a member, ask questions about what kind of music you like, and based on this, you will receive curated playlists in addition to personal playlists like Daily Mix. The new playlists are easily found on the new "Home" screen, which is constantly updated based on the listening activity of each individual.
Make Spotify your own
Tell Spotify what songs and artists you like with LIKE ♡ (or HIDE ⃠) while listening. Press ♡ to save songs to the Favorites playlist and press ⃠ to hide songs you do not want to listen to. The recommendations The Spotify app provides will be better and better as you listen more and specify preferences.
Create your own playlists
Playlists are central to creating a mood, whether it's for a morning workout or a party. The new update makes it even easier to create and edit playlists in Spotify. Give the playlist a name, search and preview the song you're looking for and add it to the playlist. While saving songs, Spotify recommends several songs that we think you will like.
Use less mobile data when playing music with Data Saver:
Music must be accessible to everyone in all markets - the love of a good song is what links different societies and cultures together. However, many users of Free on Spotify around the world are unable to listen to all the music they want because of the amount of mobile data streaming usually needs. That's why Spotify has developed Data Saver, a simple button that optimizes the listening experience so that you use less data while listening to music.
The new Free on Spotify experience will be available on iOS and Android and will roll out globally to all markets in the next few weeks.
