There are more and more columns of music with associated or compatible transmission services. In columns with Spotify, the service that is required is Premium, but this could be for a few days.
Spotify says that now allow subscribers of the free version to transmit music through the columns that support the Spotify Connect service.
Free Spotify earns more benefits
We have recently tried two examples of intelligent columns that depend on the transmission of musical services. In the case of Apple HomePod, this device only supports the Apple Music service, which does not have a free use model (only 30 days to try).
In the case of the Bose speaker, the Bose Home Speaker 500, you have several services that you can associate with this column, among them Spotify. If the Premium version was required earlier, it will now be possible, according to the company, to use the free account.
But when is it possible?
Do not turn off and turn off the column. To benefit from the change, hardware vendors must upgrade to the latest Spotify SDK.
The free level of Spotify still has its limitations compared to Spotify Premium, but in April, when launching the renewed service application, non-paying partners allow much more freedom in which they can listen.
Instead of being forced to mix clues throughout the catalog, the service gave users of the free version 15 automatically generated playlists that could freely choose the music playback, although they still had to listen to ads after some clues.
Of course, Spotify will not open much more, not even because the company's main business is the Premium model. That's why it imposes limitations on the free model, for example, it does not allow downloading songs for your phone or computer, to enjoy them offline and offer lower quality audio quality.
Premium users will stop paying?
There may be some who do it, but it will surely be a residual number. The fact that we can listen to music without ads, we can download songs to listen without connection, superior audio quality and other advantages, the investment is worth.
