Spotify introduces new service tier with free streaming on Android, iOS tablets


Spotify fans the world over take note, the company is moving into the ad-supported model with a new app for both iOS and Android tablets. The company is introducing a whole new tier of service on mobile, providing users an opportunity to listen and search for songs on the go for free on tablets.

In fact, this is the very same service Spotify offers users on the PC, now available for your Android or iOS tablet. The new tier will be available on smartphones, but with a caveat. On smartphones, the free version requires some “shuffling,” literally. You can listen to the artist of your choice, but you can only do so by shuffling through that particular artists catalog of music. The good news is that you can skip through songs you don’t want to hear and add the music you want to a new playlist.

Spotify’s live-event is still streaming so keep checking as more details are revealed for this new tier of service.
