the new Spotify free

For a long time, we prioritised the Spotify Premium product. So in 2015, we set out to reimagine what Spotify Free could be. Read more about it here: Personalized Discovery: Listen to Music You Love with All-New Free on Spotify. The challenge of this project was to create a great experience for our listeners on free while taking into consideration music licensing limitations. The result is a free product that is easier to use and accessible to more and more music fans.

spotify daily mixes

Descended from Radio, Daily Mix is our take on user's music taste, organised through 1 or more bottomless playlists depending on the variety of music you stream. Mixes are regularly updated and evolve along with your listening habits. Daily Mix makes it simple to quickly tune into – and tune between – user's favourite stuff, any day of the week. We keep similar artists grouped together, no maintenance required, and we throw in some discovery tracks too.
