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.
