Spotify Making Major Moves with New Features

spotify-logoAfter announcing their partnership with Starbucks, you may have thought Spotify would slow down with any major announcements. That couldn’t be any further from the truth as today the streaming giant had a few more tricks up their sleeve.Spotify is on a mission to solidify and maintain their position in the streaming world. The company is focused on understanding how music fits into our lives and they are rolling out a richer mobile music experience built around the premise of how people live their lives.Check out the new features below as explained by Spotify.

  • The Now start page. From the time you wake up until tonight’s party, the Now start page serves you the right music day and night. Need a Monday morning playlist pick-me-up? Done. The right tunes to help you focus after lunch? We’ve got you covered. And because Now learns what you like, you’ll be sure to hear the right music – selected from our in-house experts and your personal collection – whatever the occasion. Recommendations will adapt over time to fit your taste and mood.
  • Spotify Running. Every week millions of you lace up and hit the road to Spotify. Music is the perfect running companion but sometimes you need even more motivation to push on. That’s why Spotify Running is all about helping you go the extra mile.We’ve combined the best music on the planet – recommendations based on your listening history, multiple-genre playlists and original running compositions written by some of the world’s foremost DJs and composers – all tuned to your tempo and seamlessly transitioned to ensure you’ll never miss a beat. Start running and Spotify will detect your tempo, matching the perfect music in time to your step – making you a harder, better, faster, stronger runner.
  • And that’s not all: this Summer we’re teaming up with Nike to bring new music experiences to their audiences around the globe. And later this year, you’ll be able to access the new Spotify Running experience through the Nike+ app. We’re also integrating the RunKeeper app with Spotify Running later this year.

On top of our improved music experience, we’re also introducing an expanded world of entertainment built around you:
