Spotify

A music streaming service founded in 2008. The free service is ad supported, while premium membership includes mobile access, offline playing when not connected to the Internet and enhanced sound quality.

A Very Unique Media Player
Spotify's media player application for Windows and Mac is used for playback of local and streamed music, playlist creation and music synchronization to iPods, iPhones and Androids. Offering most of the functions of the iTunes media player, the Spotify player also provides access to apps that enhance the listening experience. Apps provide lyrics for many songs, music news, recommendations and playlist creation based on various criteria. For more information, visit www.spotify.com.
