I used to listen to Pandora all the time until I discovered Spotify. I like Spotify because I don't always know exactly what artist I want to listen to. You don't even have to make you own playlists with Spotify, because they already have plenty of pre-made playlists for you depending on what activity you are doing, what genre you want to listen to, or even what kind of mood you are in. So many times I find that Pandora plays the same songs, and same kind of music over and over again. They never play the songs I want them to. But with Spotify I always get to hear new songs, they always play my favorite songs, and I can always go back and listen to the same song without having to wait again. Spotify has such a wide selection of music to listen to, endless hours and days of music, whenever you want. Like I said I really like that you can favorite or star your favorite songs that you like so you can just go back into your stared songs folder, and listen to those songs whenever you want to. It's a great feature that most other music streaming websites don't have.

I like that I can choose what music I listen to based on the activity I'm doing for example working out at the gym. They have playlists already made based on the activity like cardio, dance workout, HIIT, power workout, running, and more. They even already already made playlists for going to sleep, eating dinner, inspirational music, kids, romance, and the list goes on. I like listening to the gym playlists, top tracks in the united states, and today's hits the most.

Spotify is also really easy to navigate through. They have abs and folders that you just click on that you can browse and find what you want to listen to. I mostly like to use the Spotify streaming on my laptop, but I also have it on my Iphone, as well as my tablet.

I would say that Spotify is the best music streaming website out there right now, and it's way ahead of it's time. Whoever made Spotify did a spectacular job.

I have the free Spotify, because I don't think it's worth it to pay since you get all the great same features as the paid program. I don't mind listening or watching the ads, because sometimes the ads even have things that I am interested.

If you don't already have Spotify you should download it, because it's completely free, and the best website, and app to listen to music on. I have already recommended it to a ton of my friends and family. The music possibilities are endless.

I have Spotify on my phone. I also have WiFi at home and most other places I go. So you would think that these two things would work great together and make my using Spotify and listening to music easy.

And in theory it would, if Spotify wasn't so laggy. I have a Android phone, that runs other music streaming apps with no problem. Spotify is the only one I I have issues with. Unfortunately it's not an every now and then issue either. It's a nearly every time I try to use the app problem. Which makes it a headache every time that I want to use it.

That being said. Spotify does have a good selection of music. They have many different generes and artists, making it easy to find music that fits your mood.

I do like that I can create playlists and share them with other people.

My biggest issues with it are that it causes issues and slows down my phone as well as it runs laggy too. These things need to be fixed so that I can better enjoy the app.

Fantastic music selection and home audio partner

Comments about Spotify Music Streaming Service:

Spotify allows me to build my library of all my old favorites by style, era and artist, while also picking up on new jamz based on my tastes. Spotify learns your tastes (you tell it your tastes) and you get to try out new artists and new tunes based on your selections.

Comments about Spotify Music Streaming Service:

I downloaded spotify on my laptop so I could listen to music while doing other stuff. I like being able to choose the artist and song I want to listen to which I can not do on a radio. I have to say Spotify took me a few days to get used to, it was pretty confusing to me. You can search artists or songs and then add them to your playlist or you can select already existing online radio stations or playlists from other users. Creating my own playlist was what confused me, but once I figured that out it has been easy to use. They have a huge selection of music genres to choose from and all the newest music out. I like exploring all the playlists and listening to music that is outside my comfort zone. I use the free version so there are ads every few songs, they are short and are not that bothersome so I will probably not upgrade to the ad free version. You can also connect to your Facebook account and follow your friends so you can see what they are listening too.

Good Free Controlled Streaming

By 

from Hartford, CT

Comments about Spotify Music Streaming Service:

I really like the free Spotify streaming program. I have it downloaded onto my phone and my computer. I like that I can listen to pre-made playlists, a friends' playlist, or entire albums. There's a lot of music available on Spotify, including new releases.

I like also that I can make playlists for my own listening pleasure. People can follow my playlists, and get notified when I make changes. I make them based on mood, event or for my workout. There are options to shuffle the list/album, as well as to loop it once you've gone through all the songs.

There's a search option to help you find the song/artist, although sometimes the suggestions it gives are a little weird. Once you find your artists you'll see the most popular songs of theirs, and then a basic discography.

You'll still get commercials on Spotify, every few songs, but you can design your listening experience much more specifically than the other popular streaming program with a free option. There's the option to pay for a commercial free upgrade, but I haven't done this yet.

Love listening to music through Spotify

By 

from Spring, TX

Comments about Spotify Music Streaming Service:

This music sharing website is amazing! You can have access to all sorts of music all under one program. No need for Cd's all over the place and the best thing is that the basic use of the website is FREE!!! The only drawback is that you don't actually own the music but it's on your computer as long as you want it. There's no limit to how many times you can listen to a song.

Another drawback is that it doesn't include every song out there due to copyright laws.

You can also pay a monthly fee and take Spotify with you on your phone/tablet.

You can learn about new and upcoming artist and songs that are quickly becoming popular here. You can listen to the song one time or add it to one of your playlists to get back to that song quicker and listen to it over and over again.

You can also queue up the songs on your playlists so that they will play in a specific order and skip the songs you don't want to listen to.

No thank you.

Comments about Spotify Music Streaming Service:

I really don't like Spotify. I tried it after I heard about how great it was. I already use a music streaming service but I thought I would give it a try. I have stuck with my usual music streaming service since.

I installed Spotify on my MacBook. It took a while to get used to the program. [My other program I had no install and there was nothing to get used to]. I went through a few stations and tried to customize them a little bit. I just didn't care for the stations and when I tried to customize them it really didn't feel customized to me. I continued to use my main streaming music service [which I still use to this day].

The main problem with this program is every time I would turn on my MacBook Spotify would pop up before any other program. It would then slow down everything else from loading. I would then get multiple errors from Spotify pop up, all regarding how it could not connect to the network [it takes a minute for my WiFi to connect, calm down Spotify!]. Basically it just froze my computer like crazy when I started it up and it was just a hassle. It also took a while to get Spotify completely uninstalled.

Really, there are WAY better music programs you can use. I don't understand the hype.

I absolutely LOVE Spotify, I use it every single day.
It is so easy to use and I think the Premium comes at a decent prize.
I've had it for around 6 months (the premium) and I'm very happy with it. The music selection is great and exploring new music is awesome.

Easiest way to listen to music

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Spotify Music Streaming Service:

As I'm writing this, I'm listening to the Spotify Music Streaming Service. Spotify is very easy to operate and navigate. There are pre-made playlists (right now I'm listening to Amy Grant Christmas Music Playlist). It is really convenient that you can select the type of playlist you like, or your favorite band, and it will continually play thru the playlist. You don't have to go back to the program that often to restart the selection or continually be looking for songs. It's also really conveient to use Spotify while at work, since there aren't any radios or speakers throughout my whole office. Each person is then able to tailor the type of music they like and listen to the music from their own computer.

This also gives you the opportunity to listen to new songs, as they are sometimes released on Spotify. You can listen to them in their entirety and decide if the CD is one you are interested in purchasing.

There are a few ads played between songs, but it is not in an annoying way. There is one short ad after maybe 6 songs. For being a free service, I am willing to listen to ads!

Great for streaming music at home or on the go

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about Spotify Music Streaming Service:

Spotify is one of my two favorite streaming websites/apps (Pandora is my other go to streaming app). The reason why i like using Spotify is because it has a large database of the music and musicians that I enjoy the most. I like that I can use Spotify where ever I am, whether it be at home on my laptop or on the go with my smartphone (iPhone) or tablet (iPad). I like to have music to accompany me. A streaming app like Spotify allows me to listen to music across multiple platforms without me having to sync up all of my songs or spend a lot of money on purchasing songs. Spotify has a large database of songs that I can stream for free (with ads). The interface is easy enough to use. I like the search feature, this allows me to search for specific songs or artists. I also like that the results are filtered from most relevant to least relevant. Another plus is that it also suggests similar songs and artists which helps me to discover different bands.

The one area where Spotify doesn't succeed as well as Pandora is creating Playlists. Creating a playlist is rather time consuming, actually it is way too time consuming. This is my only negative, otherwise I am very pleased with the songs and service offered by Spotify and would rate it an 8 out of 10.
