Many US Internet users have never heard of a company called Spotify, but tomorrow morning that is going to change. Â Spotify launching in the US is significant as it will trigger a change in the way we consume our music. Â Some of us here in the US have had access to Spotify via a variety of tricks and knowing the right people.
I have used Spotify for the last 6 months and the thing I love the most about it is the simple integration of Facebook so I can discover music my friends are listening to. Â This is something Apple has never gotten right with iTunes. Â In iTunes I get to see what the most popular music is across the US, but I have no idea what my friends are listening to.
Spotify fixes this problem by letting you create playlists that you share with friends, and the entire Spotify network. Â Being able to mix your local music with streamed music creates an endless library of tunes. Â Rumors of giving Spotify a free 20 hours per month of music is generous despite the ads. Â I have paid for my Spotify account from day one so I can get music on my iPhone/iPad too.
Welcome to America Spotify, our ears thank you!
