Streaming Music Apps - "‘PLAY GUETTA shows the potential of what streaming music apps can achieve"

Streaming Music Apps - "‘PLAY GUETTA shows the potential of what streaming music apps can achieve" | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it
Meanwhile on Spotify’s app platform comes the launch of David Guetta’s ‘PLAY GUETTA’ app. Back when Spotify launched artist apps back in June I said that they were a great start on the rod to relevance for streaming music services and music discovery but that there was a long distance to go (which was a polite way of saying that the first wave of apps weren’t very good). The David Guetta app is a different kettle of fish altogether. Whereas the first wave of apps had an air of unfulfilled promised ‘PLAY GUETTA’ is a rich, immersive and – crucially – massively social app. As a testament to the importance of Spotify’s app ecosystem, ‘PLAY GUETTA’ is built using the Soundrop SDK, itself a Spotify app.

Spotify: 'We have to turn ourselves into the OS of music' - The Guardian (blog)

Spotify: 'We have to turn ourselves into the OS of music' - The Guardian (blog) | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it
So, an iPhone app built on Spotify's API is now more popular than the main Spotify app – but since SpotOn Radio requires users to be paying for Spotify, this isn't a problem for the company.

A number of startups and media companies – including The Guardian – jumped on board Spotify's desktop apps platform when it went live. The next wave of apps may come from another source though: music labels.

"It's a really interesting platform for artists and labels to really enhance the experience around the music," says Garmark.

"In this digital age of music, the experience in some ways got reduced to just a track or a playlist. But with these apps, it can start getting back to the old way of immersing yourself in the album cover, or reading about the music while listening to it. And artists can use it to connect with their audience."

Spotify to begin rolling out browser-based music app in beta today (update: now live for some)

Spotify to begin rolling out browser-based music app in beta today (update: now live for some) | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it
Spotify today plans to begin the roll out of its first ever browser-based music player, The Verge has learned from sources close to the company. From the looks of it, the web player looks a lot like its desktop counterparts on Mac and Windows, including search, Spotify Radio, playlist editing and creation, and a "What's New" section. Like its desktop apps, Spotify on the web will likely be free to use but include audio ads and banners ads. The web app will roll out over the coming months, we're told, and will supplement but not replace the company's desktop apps.
