Spotify opens free radio service on Android for all users (move over Pandora)
It’s been a while since I’ve logged in on Spotify, but yesterday brought along with it one reason for me to re-install the app on my Galaxy S III, at least to give it a try for a while again. Say hello to an all-new radio experience, typical to the one you’re probably accustomed with from Pandora.
The latest update to Spotify for Android is labeled 0.5.2.87 and lets users start a “radio station” based on their favorite playlist, genre, album, artist or song. You can also personalize your stations by voting songs up or down, and save songs that you like to your account with a single tap (something Pandora won’t let you do).
Best of all, the service is free to everyone — no Spotify Premium account or credit card information of any sort is needed.
If you haven’t already updated your app or, like me, bailed on Spotify a long time ago (thanks to Google Play Music, of course) and would like to check out the new features, hit up the download link below, after taking a gander at a few screen captures from the latest version.
Anyone still using Spotify? Will this replace Pandora as your #1 Internet radio application?
