Music streaming services have a lot of music at their disposal, making that monthly subscription cost worth it for those who sign up.
Popular music streaming app, Spotify, is looking to enhance user experience with a new feature called “Spotify Codes”. This works pretty much like a QR Code and allows users to generate a code for a song, artist, album or even playlist, which can then be shared around social media for easy discovery.
Sharing music from the Spotify app has typically meant sharing a direct link from the app into another app.
A third-party developer named Andrew Chang was in the news recently for developing a third-party (and unofficial) Spotify app for the Apple Watch. While he faced some resistance from the Spotify team about this, the company has now changed its stance altogether by partnering directly with the developer for this new app.
One of the “issues” with streaming services is that, at any given moment, what you have in your library of songs may just not be there one day.
Spotify was previously rumored to be working out new deals with the Universal Music Group, which would see some big changes set in motion.
Apple Music Edges out Spotify in Terms of Monthly Unique Users, All Thanks to the 3-Month Free Trial
As per a new report published by mobile analytics firm, Verto, Apple Music is leading Spotify in terms of monthly unique users. This is thanks largely to the 3-month free trial offered by the service for new customers. The numbers were recorded in the month of February, so they’re pretty recent. The report found that Apple Music saw nearly 40.7 million unique customers last month.
Streaming music is a big deal these days, just one of the many reasons why Apple Music even exists, and Drake’s latest effort indicates it certainly isn’t changing any time soon.
