Spotify launches

By October 7, 2008 No Comments

I got an email this morning announcing the full launch of online music service Spotify.  Happy days!  I love this service, and have been using the beta at home for a while now as my primary source of recorded music.

For those that don’t know it Spotify is a music streaming service – the model I have long believed will dominate.  You can get it for free with ads of for £9.99 a month without.

The full launch, along with an announcement of deals with all the record majors comes on the heals of a rumoured €15m investment round.

In related news, the recently launched Myspace music is getting bad reviews, possibly because it is has put appeasing the big record labels ahead of building a compelling user experience.  The same can’t be said of Spotify, which has a great UI.
