Spotify launches mobile app with on-demand playlists for users

25 April 2018

Users can select exact tracks to listen to within these playlists, rather than being forced to rely on shuffle, and can skip as many times as they want. The service will now offer 15 free playlists to listeners, with about 750 songs constituting over 40 hours of playback.

Its new free tier could give enough exposure to the app for Indians to recognise Spotify's superior technology.

Revealed at the Gramercy Theatre in NY, the app will allow users free access to 750 tracks over a maximum of 15 playlists, without forcing them into a shuffle mode. Spotify announced a data saver mode, which allows users to stream on slower networks, while also saving data.

But the way Spotify sees it, if more people try out the app and are satisfied with the free tier, the more chances they choose to upgrade to the $9.99 monthly plan.

Spotify's free tier represents broadcast radio for Spotify, and is a critical piece of Spotify's overall strategy as paid services like Apple Music continue to grow.

This free version enables its users to not be " stuck shuffling anymore".

The move is part of an effort to attract more paying subscribers.
