What Spotify is

How does it all work

Spotify was created in 2008 in Sweden. The company has made agreements with many recording labels and artists to be able to use their music free of charge to share with their users. Spotify is available on computers, tablets and smart phones, which means that no matter where you are you can access your Spotify playlist as well as being able to download Spotify playlists created by your friends. The music you add to your playlist is not your own music, although on some devices you are able to use the files you have already purchased and stored. All Spotify music is streamed to you on demand.

The average song will take up around 5MB of space on your device, and having thousands of songs will limit the available space you have for other applications as well as your photos and other important uses. You can have playlists of thousands of songs right at your fingertips and not use up any of your phone or computer internal memory by using audio streaming.

Benefits of Spotify

Spotify tells you all this information, and then lets you share the song with all the people on your social networks. Spotify also has a function that helps you to find new music that you will like. Spotify keeps a record of what you listen to most and can suggest new songs or artists that you may be interested in.
