Spotify is now in the US!!!
This is going to change the way we listen to music, the way we share music, the way we discover music. I can’t wait to see how this site will unroll and become apart of peoples lives.
The application is really easy to navigate, and it looks like this is something that will take over iTunes. There are playlists that you can create and you can see what playlists your friends create, you can share the playlists, you can share albums, you can share songs, and its all FREE. At first the subscription services don’t seem appealing but then I got the Spotify app for my Iphone and I could possible see myself paying to utilize this service. Ideally if I could create playlists with music from the desktop app transfer those to the Iphone app, and listen to music I want to create life is good right? Like I said good bye Itunes.
I logged onto Spotify this morning to listen to a new cd that came out today and I got a notification that said I had been selected to send out some invites to friends. The thing is you have to have a gmail account in order to get the invite. So here is the deal, if you have a gmail account and want to try out Spotify fill out the form for the newsletter. I’ll also send you a free song from Jessy Ribordy of Falling Up for subscribing. I will run this little promotion till Friday and then send out all the invites. Sound good?
Below is an excerpt of some people from my Google+ feed using Spotify.
Michael H Be Tee Dubs, check your spotify. I just shared an album with you
Michael M nice how the crap did you do that…still trying to figure this out
Michael H – Dude, it’s pretty cool. I was having trouble too. You can click and drag the albums and songs around. All I did was drag the album art over to your name on the right side of the screen.
Michael M – yeah..just figured it out…you can also right click on the song and decide if you want to share it on FB, Twitter, Spotify or messenger
Michael M – thank you for the songs my friend…finishing up this song by Explosions in the Sky and will listen to your stuff
The big question I have is do you think it will cut back on people pirating music?
