Spotify Evolution

In the beginning, this application had some other drawbacks, indicating that users who wanted to access it for free, had to receive an invitation; otherwise you only had the payment option. Also, Spotify was only supported on one computer.



Fortunately years later, with the emergence of more devices and smartphones, Spotify developers created a mobile application. So that today it is available for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Windows Phone, Symbian, iOS and Android operating systems.

The success of this platform is increasing, although there is a variety of competition, people still prefer Spotify. Today it has about 232 million active users per month, has had about 100 million payments.

Its operation is simple, as it is similar to that of any other application. Taking into account that to access it, the first thing to do is register or create an account in this app. To do this, you need to download the program on your computer or install it on your mobile device.

Then proceed to register, you can do it with your email or you can log in with your Facebook account. Once you have your account, you need to choose one of the plans offered by the company. Among them, the most recommended is "Free plan" because it is totally free, but it has some limitations.


The other Spotify plan is "Premium" which, of course, offers better service, without limitations and with better sound. It also allows you to listen to music with or without an Internet connection.
