Editors' Review

+

Spotify is a music- and podcast-streaming service that distinguishes itself with wide availability across different devices, a variety of recommendation systems, and social media integration. As of March 2017, it counted 50 million paying users, making it the most popular service of its kind.

Pros

It's everywhere: You can use Spotify in your Web browser, but Spotify also has apps for mobile devices, desktop PCs, game consoles, and streaming boxes like Roku and Amazon Fire TV. If your car has Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, you get Spotify support there, too. No other music-streaming service has this level of accessibility. You can also pause on one device and resume on another.

Everything is available offline: Although this feature is not unique to Spotify, it is convenient. Subscribers can download albums and listen to them offline to conserve mobile data, or to avoid having to rely on a steady connection. Storage is unlimited, and download speeds are reliably fast. You can also choose from several different levels of audio quality (lower qualities use up less storage space). This feature is limited to three devices per account, however.

Plentiful music-discovery tools: Spotify presents genre playlists, personalized dynamic playlists called Your Daily Mix, a partly personalized collection of tunes called Discover Weekly, and a Release Radar playlist based on the albums that you've added to your library. Spotify can also generate a playlist based on an individual song or artist of your choice, which you can fine-tune by voting up or down on each track (though only subscribers can choose specific songs or albums to play). If you queue a single song or album, the Autoplay feature will transition you to a contextual playlist when the song or album is over.

Unique content: Spotify Sessions contains a large library of performances recorded live by high-profile artists. This can be a fun section to discover alternate takes of your favorite songs, and you won't find them on other services.

Cons

Could have a more humanized presentation: Apple Music has a live radio station called Beats 1 that features concerts and well-known DJs talking on-air between songs, and there are prerecorded shows available on demand and hosted by people like Pharrell Williams, Vince Staples, and Mike D. Spotify, on the other hand, doesn't have live stations, and its playlist curators are so behind-the-scenes that you wouldn't be blamed for thinking the whole thing was run by algorithm.

Bottom Line

Spotify is an excellent and highly personalizable music-streaming service that can be found in more places than any competitor. Judge for yourself by listening to the free version, or sign up for a free 30-day trial of the subscription version.
