How Spotify Changed Music

How Spotify Changed Music | Music Industry | Scoop.it
Guest post by Kyle Bylin of sidewinder.fm, a music and tech think tank.

 

As Spotify moves from the fringes of the tech crowd to the mainstream market, it’s worth reflecting on how the online music service has changed the way many of us listen to music.

Not long ago, we went to great lengths to seek out and purchase albums for our collections. Now, we simply search for an artist on Spotify and add their entire discography to our library. With a single click, we can listen to their songs and not have to wait for a video to buffer or a download to complete. Rather than collect our favorite songs with diligent care, we capture them using the “Like” button with pure ease.

antònia folguera's curator insight, December 21, 2012 9:05 AM

Maybe the access to an infinite catalog of music anytime, anywhere and in every device is not the future. Specially if we keep on paying too much for bad internet connections at home and mobile (Spain). On top of this paying for premium feature services for photos, videos, etc.
