In the U.S. we often discuss web products that are only available in this country. Spotify, however, is one worth discussing even though it is not available in the U.S. Spotify is a streaming music service that has more than 13 million songs available for listening. Their free service limits the number of times you can listen to a specific song and is supported by advertisements. There is also a paid service that remove advertisements and provides unlimited streaming. Spotify’s Premium service now lets you buy songs in a playlist for play on a non-network device like an iPod. This service can also be used with smartphones.
The BBC News says that this new service will challenge iTunes.
However, since the service is only available in a small number of countries in Europe, this challenge will be a small one. Spotify is available in Sweden, Norway, Finland, the UK, France, Spain and the Netherlands.
