If you use Spotify’s free tier of service, you may want to be aware of some changes that could be coming soon to your music streaming experience.
Spotify is planning to roll out a new version of its free streaming service in the coming weeks, according to a report from Bloomberg. The update is meant to make the free service easier to use, especially for users on smartphones.
Among the changes said to be coming are the ability for free users to access playlists more quickly and have more control over what songs they hear on top playlists.
While Spotify does offer a premium, ad-free music streaming service for $9.99 per month, more than half of its user base are free users. These rumored changes would make the free listening experience a bit more like the paid one, potentially giving those free users a bit of a taste of the premium experience that could eventually entice them to move to a paid subscription.
