Music is a universal language that people should be able to access at their fingertips, without the hindrance of data costs or monthly subscriptions. That’s why Spotify has the Free tier, which offers the same quality listening experience that the platform is known for, but without the monthly subscription fee.
Personalisation is at the heart of what we do at Spotify, curating music based on every user’s listening habits, so the more you listen, the more you are setting the tone.
With playlists made just for you, whether you are on Spotify Premium, or the Free Tier, here are some of the features you shouldn’t miss out on:
1). Made For You
Spotify’s “Made For You” feature is where listeners can access various playlists that have been specifically made for them and are updated regularly. Users can easily find songs they might like compiled into playlists arranged according to genre, artist, mood and even decade. These playlists are created based on a person’s listening habits, which include tracks they like, save, skip, repeat or share on the app.
2). Discover Weekly
One of Spotify’s algorithm based playlists, “Discover Weekly” is a playlist of 30 songs that a user has not streamed before curated and updated by Spotify every Monday. With a variety of artists to explore, Discover Weekly caters to the needs of music lovers, helping them to discover artists, genres or songs they might like, but haven’t come across, yet. This playlist becomes more personalized and tailored to your tastes, the more you use it.
3). Daily Mix
This is a feature that feels like that friend who is excited to learn about things that you love the most, to buy them for you. The platform serves up to six personalised playlists based on your favourite songs and related music you might enjoy.
Each of the personalised playlist is different, and can be as diverse as a user’s listening habits. As the name suggests, this playlist updates daily so you know the vibes never stop.
4). Release Radar
Fridays are popular for releases of music around the world. Spotify knows this and has created a playlist that caters to that. These songs are new releases from artists that you follow. It helps music lovers keep up to date with the latest releases from artists they love.
5). Spotify Radio
Have you ever enjoyed a song so much, and wished you could find music that sounds the same, without having to physically search for it? This is what Spotify Radio is.
It is a playlist created based on songs, artists and albums you select on Spotify, and helps you find very similar songs that fit the genre or mood of a selected song or artist. The compilation is about 50 tracks following the mood of the initially selected song.
