Spotify Radio App

Social music streaming service Spotify announced on Friday the release of its radio app for Android users. The announcement comes one month after Spotify released the same feature for Apple iOS users.

Using the application Spotify users can create stations based on artists, albums and other playlists from Spotify’s entire library of songs, nearly 16 million options all together.

Given the social nature of the Spotify app the program also allows users to receive inspiration from friends’ playlists.

Stealing a page from the Pandora music app users can also “thumbs up” and “thumbs down” song selections at which point the Spotify radio app will choose songs that best suit a listeners tastes.

One of the best features is a “like” button which will place song selections on a users desktop for later listening, a nice touch of mobile meets desktop. 

The Spotify radio app is free to download from the Google Plys Store but requires a premium membership for users wishing to avoid advertisements.

Will you be downloading the Spotify radio app for Google Android?
