Why This is Wirefly BUZZworthy

The music industry is rapidly changing to keep up with technology and the way the world listens to their music. One major change that is really exciting is that Spotify will now allow users to listen to music on smartphones and tablets for FREE. In the past, you could listen to Spotify's free radio stations or pay $9.99 a month and listen to any music that you wanted by artist, album, playlist, and more. Well, now that is all free. You can listen to any song of your choosing and at any time for free. The only difference between mobile listening and tablet listening is that on mobile you have to listen to your playlists and songs in the shuffle mode, but on your personal tablet you can listen the same way as you would have if you paid previously. This opens up a new door to the possibilities of on the go music listening.

For those of you who haven't heard about Spotify yet, it is a great app for listening to your favorite music on any Android or iOS smartphone, tablet, or even your personal computer. Simply set up an account and you can save songs that you like, albums, or even follow your favorite artists. Once you sign on to any device, you will see all of your favorite music appear and begin listening immediately. There are also tons of already made playlists from other users that will suite your mood and listening pleasure. The Spotify app also has a social media likeness to it in that you can follow other people and have them follow you back. This is great for people who have friends with similar music tastes. So remember while you are out traveling this holiday season getting all of those gifts for loved ones, sitting in mall traffic, and driving to visit the folks; you now have Spotify to keep you company!
