Major US wireless carrier Sprint has struck a music streaming partnership with Napster (formerly known as Rhapsody). The partnership, however, does not mean that subscribers of the fourth biggest mobile operator in America will be able to enjoy exclusive access to delicious Napster deals or even get to preinstall the official Napster mobile app on their handsets. But it does combine billing unto the customer’s smartphone plan.
T-Mobile has just revealed that it is adding more than a dozen new streaming video and audio services to its Binge On feature, which lets its subscribers consume all the video content they want without worrying about their data allotments getting affected in the process. A few of the newly added services include Spotify, Google Play Music, NBC, Univision, Radio Disney, and Tidal, just to name a few.
Apple Music, Apple’s take on music streaming subscription services, is now officially live, as promised. The tech giant has just launched its newest music service, which costs $10 per month and is now available in over 100 countries.
After only a few days after it was introduced, Apple Music is already starting to affect the music streaming services industry. And one of the first responders also happens to one of the biggest players in the industry -- Spotify.
Apple fans are finally seeing the result of Apple's high profile acquisition of Beats Music one year ago for a sum of $3 billion. Together with the official unveiling of iOS 9, the newest version of Apple's mobile operating system, the company also announced Apple Music, its first ever music streaming service.
Spotify has just revealed that it is bringing its impressive catalogue of music tracks to wearable devices, most especially smartwatches running on the Android Wear operating system for wearables, via its own smartwatch app which is expected to be launched in June of this year.
The Spotify wearable app will give consumers another reason to try out Android smartwatches. For years, smartwatches have been struggling to take off, but with the release of the Apple Watch earlier this year, more and more people are finally paying attention to wearable devices in general.
During a media event recently held in the city of New York, Spotify unveiled some new enhancements and additions to its service. What was once primarily known for its music streaming service now offers video clips, podcasts, and playlists that are more geared to whatever activity consumers are engaged in at the time.
This should be welcome news, especially for those who signed up for Spotify's three month subscription in December last year and whose trial has now ran out. Google is now offering a big discount for anyone who wants to try Google Play Music All Access, the company's subscription music streaming service.
Where is the fun in discovering a new song from an artist you stumbled upon on Spotify when you can't even get an idea of what it sounds? Thankfully, the Spotify app now comes with a few tweaks that addresses that concern. Users can now preview songs and even albums with having to fully click through them.
