Your music. Your grocery store. Your house. Your job. Everything.
Sure, you can listen to the in-game music will playing Pokémon GO, but what if you want your Pokémon experience to be the very best, like no other ever was? You could try streaming some Pokémon music on Spotify (if you don't already own it all and have it all on your phone already for some reason), which has caused Spotify's Pokémon music numbers to skyrocket.Read More
TL;DR: I know you are, but what am I?
Apple's come under plenty of fire for how thoroughly they police the App Store, especially when it comes to Android users' vocal preference for that platform's significantly more open App marketplace. (How else are we supposed to play our emulated SNES and GameBoy games, Apple!?) Now, Spotify has accused them of blocking an update to the Spotify app in an effort to hurt competition, but Apple's not having that excuse.Read More
Reports of Soundcloud's death have been greatly exaggerated. Remember two months ago when everybody lamented Soundcloud's financial losses? Here's their latest idea: Soundcloud Go, a paid subscription service.Read More

Well now, Spotify is offering even more by providing a video service as well!Read More

Kelly spoke to Spotify, where his playlist is hosted, to share his thoughts on how the songs helped him keep his wits about him.Read More

But you already used it and will stop now that everyone found it.
Spotify sure has their hardcore music fans pegged; they've debuted a new app that automates the process of making sure you were into a band before everyone else and thus assuring that all the money you've spent on bowties, skinny jeans, and old-timey home decor was not a waste.Read More
This makes us happy-ify!
Truly committing to changing the demographics of tech is a daunting task--but it seems like Spotify might actually be up to the challenge.Read More
It's the latest in frivolous lawsuit technology.
Record label Ministry of Sound is suing music service Spotify because its users can create playlists that mimic MoS's compilation albums and share those playlists with friends. Lest you think the United States has a monopoly on dumb lawsuits, this is all happening in the U.K.Read More
When it comes to distributing pop music online, Thom York is actually something of an authority on the matter.
Thom Yorke took to Twitter over the weekend to harangue music-streaming service Spotify over the low rates it pays musicians for the rights to stream their music. The Radiohead frontman -- who knows a thing or two about successful digital music distribution -- is responding to the low rates, which amount to fractions of a cent every time a song is played, by taking his ball and going home, removing his songs from the service. That means fans will not longer be able to listen to Yorke collaboration Atoms for Peace or his solo album The Eraser on Spotify.Read More
Twitter launched it's recently rumored music service today! Twitter #Music was announced this morning on Good Morning America, and comes in the form of an iOS app and web service. Notably absent is an Android version of Twitter #Music, so I'll focus on the web service which at the moment seems buggy and not fully formed.Read More
With the anticipation and excitement for Grand Theft Auto V reaching new levels daily, it's a wonder that it took this long, but it's finally happened: Rockstar's released playlists of all the Grand Theft Auto radio stations on Spotify and iTunes, starting with Grand Theft Auto III and even including handheld games like Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.Read More
Spotify has all but eliminated my need to ever buy music. For a few bucks a month I can queue up practically any song I can think of and rock out. Now they supposedly want to bring that same level of convenience to video. Reports say Spotify is going to launch a video streaming service like Netflix that will offer original content -- also like Netflix. That's all well and good, but I already have Netflix.Read More
Seriously, Finland? We understand that Internet piracy is a problem, but this is just too much. Police raided the home of a nine-year-old girl and confiscated her laptop -- her Winnie the Pooh laptop -- because she was accused of downloading one song off The Pirate Bay. That really happened. We all live in this world now.Read More
Microsoft apparently didn't learn too terribly much from the whole Zune fiasco, as the leaked pricing plans for their Xbox Music service aren't exactly competitive. It looks like a month of the unreleased service will cost a cool $9.99 in the United States, with a slight discount if users purchase a year worth. That's the same amount one might pay to Spotify for a Premium membership, which is honestly a better deal. Maybe they just think Xbox 360 users aren't aware of this fact?Read More
