Spotify is one of the more popular free internet radio station due to its engaging interface, the diversity of its content and the fact that Spotify’s base services are completely free of charge. Spotify users will have to download the Spotify app to their desktop or mobile device in order to play their customized playlist, and can try out a 30 day premium trial for a premium account which will allow them to play higher quality music, ad-free.
One of the premier free internet radio stations, Spotify (free in the US only) provides users with millions of songs from its impressive songs library, featuring genres such as classic rock, dance music, alternative rock, and so on.
As previously mentioned, Spotify’s basic services are free, however, users will be afforded the opportunity of upgrading their accounts to premium accounts for an ad-free, better sound quality experience. Spotify also offers its customers a 30 free trial so they can try out a premium account before committing to buy.
Though Spotify is free to use, allowing users to custom build their own playlists from its songs library, as well as share their playlists with their friends via the social connect feature, Spotify does not provide users with great accessibility. As the service is only available for free in the US and since, to access your playlist, and you would need to download the Spotify app to either your desktop or mobile device, as the service (unlike its competitors) does not offer live music streaming services.
