Spotify is a digital multitasking app that gives you access to music streaming services. You can stream and download millions of songs, podcasts and videos from artists all over the world, like Apple Music and Amazon Music Unlimited. The beauty of the Spotify app is that all its music is available for free. All you have to do is sign up using an email address or by connecting with Facebook. If you don’t want to commit yourself to Spotify Premium monthly subscription, you can just sign up and start enjoying the music.
The free Spotify app is an ad-supported app which means that your music will be interrupted by ads while the premium is ad-free. The free version only gives you access to your PC, laptop and mobile phone, but with premium, you get the full mobile development service.
How Spotify works?
Getting started with Spotify is pretty easy and you listening to your favorite music immediately. All you need to do is visit the Spotify website and sign-up. The best way to do this is through your Facebook account since it’ll make it easier to find and follow friends. You will also check what kind of music they are listening to and share songs. To get maximum privileges from Spotify, you need to subscribe to the Premium plan. This version allows you to connect to multiple devices with more features and flexibility. Once you are there, download and install a free Spotify app. You will get versions for desktop and iPhone/iPad and Android phones. Get signed up on those devices and start listening to your favorite music. The setup process is straightforward once you delve in, it gets interesting and fun listening to music from your favorite artists.
Can you download music from Spotify?
I will say yes and no. Why? The Premium version allows users to set music to be available “offline”, which is not the same as downloading music. However, you can try to cheat the system by downloading an album and at a later date cancel your subscription. The multitasking app doesn’t allow you to download the tracks to burn them to a CD or copy them to other devices. The offline mode is to help those who are trying to save their data or who are traveling to places with no internet access. Spotify Premium gives you access to more than 10,000 songs for offline listening and you can do this on up to five different devices. Users can download songs, albums or playlists on Spotify easily, all they have to do is switch the toggle next to Download on the album that you wish to enjoy while offline. Another way is to click the three dots in the top right and click “Download”.
How much data does Spotify use?
It all depends on the streaming quality. If you are looking for high-quality streaming, then the data burnt will be more. Here are shallow estimates of the amount of data Spotify will get through:
- When the quality is set to “normal”, an hour of music playback will use around 50MB of data
- Users can play around 24 hours of music for around 1GB of data usage, at normal quality
- You can use 1GB in less than 15 hours, at high-quality
- For 1GB of data, you can use in 7 hours, at extreme quality
- The video playback uses more data
The mobile data of your device helps you check and change the quality of streaming and download of songs.
With the advanced technology, entertainment has been pushed to the next level and people can now quality visuals and sounds. Spotify offers its users the best experience when it comes to online entertainment. However, for the best experience, you need to opt for the premium version of Spotify.
