12 Essential Facts About Spotify:

  • It is operating in around 79 countries.
  • A user devotes time to 40 artists weekly.
  • 10% of US adults tune to Spotify many times a week.
  • Over 20,000 songs are added every day on the platform. (Source: App Inventiv)
  • Typically, Apple charges a 30% transaction fee on all the in-app purchases that take place in every app published via Apple App Store. As a result, they also charged Spotify for its in-app subscription method. (Source: Tech 25s)
  • Spotify is similar to, but not quite like its competitors. It’s like Spotify takes the best parts of various streaming companies and mashes them together. There’s an offline download available, dedicated mobile apps, a free version, and much more. But it doesn’t force you to pay through the nose for all of it — users can choose different subscription options. (For more on the competition, scroll down below the list.)
  • Spotify offers free accounts (but only for people with invitations). Get invited, and you don’t have to pay a single cent if you don’t want, and you’ll get six months of unlimited streaming. But there are trade-offs: First, you’ll have to deal with advertisements. Second, after that six months is up, you’ll be capped at 10 hours of streaming per month. (Word has it that a maximum cap of 5 plays per track may also be instituted.) And there are no downloads or mobile access with this option. For that, you’ll have to get a Premium subscription.
  • Spotify has two paid service tiers. Aside from the free account, there are two other options: Desktop-only, no-cap Unlimited plan for $5 monthly, or $10 Premium, which offers both PC and mobile access, and offline music downloads. (In other countries, Spotify eventually changed its TOS over time, and now many European users are apparently quite upset about the U.S. service’s currently cheaper prices. So enjoy it while it lasts.) [EDITED: Corrected to transpose Premium and Unlimited.]
  • Spotify music catalog may or may not vary from those available abroad. Licensing negotiations can be tricky, and even though some are reporting that Spotify’s full inventory is available in the U.S., some users have complained about some missing artists or titles. Confusion and roadblocks may just be a fact of life for now — at least until the music labels (not to mention TV/entertainment companies) get their heads out of their… well, you know.
  • Spotify doesn’t have every song known to man, though. Spotify’s catalog — with 13 to 15 million tracks — practically doubles Rdio’s, but can’t touch GrooveShark’s. So it’s a respectable size, but don’t be surprised if your favorite indie band’s not on here.
  • Spotify lets you create playlists. Find songs you want to hear, and then drag and drop to create playlists for listening. You can also share with friends, thanks to simple and easy Facebook integration.
  • Spotify offers desktop and mobile apps. You can listen to your Spotify songs and playlists via Android or iOS apps, or via the desktop client. (Source: Tech Nobuffalo)
