Spotify Adds Free Access On Smartphones, Tablets
On tablets, all users (not just Premium subscribers) will find the same experience they encounter on the desktop, according to PC Mag. Smartphone users will be a tad more restricted, but can still access all their Spotify playlists.
Previously, non-paying Spotify users could only listen to Spotify Radio on the mobile apps. But now, they can discover new music, save, shuffle, and share.
In the mood to listen to Lady Gaga or Phil Collins without interruption from similar artists? Just search for a particular singer, hit "shuffle play," and listen to their entire catalogue.
If you'd rather discover new music, or are looking for inspiration at the gym or during Christmas tree trimming, visit the Browse option to find themed playlists (pictured), curated by Spotify employees for various moods, genres, and moments.
All Spotify users, however, can now get the Led out, thanks to a new partnership between the music-streaming company and legendary rock band Led Zeppelin. The group's Swan Song/Atlantic catalog is now available exclusively on Spotify.
In a slow rollout, the first two albums (Led Zeppelin and Led Zeppelin II) are online now. Each day through Saturday, two more albums will hit Spotify; on Sunday, the final six will be available, including the 2012 album Celebration Day.
