Spotify launches push for more users

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, April 17, 2013

It has millions of users…and the Spotify music streaming service is pushing for more.  I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.  If you love music, chances are you already know about the cloud based streaming service called Spotify.  But in case you don’t,  it has begun advertising on TV in the U.S. and even on competitor YouTube.   What should you know about Spotify?  The basic version is free and says communications head Graham James…

“If you’re new to Spotify, one of the best things to do is just type in whatever song is your favorite song, what’s your favorite artist, and type it into Spotify.   And immediately, instantaneously, you’re listening to your favorite music.  We want to make it so you are as close to the music you love as possible.  So it is an a la carte service, you can listen to whatever music you want to.  There is a radio option that you can lean back and have music stream to you. ”

Spotify does require 10 dollar a month subscriptions for taking music with you on your mobile devices.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
