Spotify is a music service that streams music to computers with little buffering time. It has a catalog of several million songs, and will be available to certain Android users to stream music — even if they are offline.
Spotify makes millions of songs, playlists, and user-created libraries available through subscription or ad-support. In its attempt to create an Android app that can quickly and smoothly play those songs, Spotify is on a path that could allow mobile users to keep larger MP3 collections at all times. Not a bad alternative to having only the songs users can fit or or choose to put on an SD card.
Due to licensing restrictions, several nations – including the United States – cannot access Spotify at the moment. The company is working on launching in other countries, but it is only available in Sweden, Norway, Finland, the UK, France and Spain at the moment.
