Before, songs are played randomly in the free version of the app within a playlist. If you want to hear a specific song, you have to skip over and over other songs until the desired song is finally played. This is a big disadvantage compared to the premium version. This restriction is at least partially gone, as Spotify provides each user with 15 playlists that they can control freely. If you use the browser or desktop version of Spotify without a subscription, you can play songs for a long time directly.

With these personalized playlists, Spotify can learn the music preferences of the free user better over time and always offer fresh songs, a feature only available to premium subscribers before.

The new version of the Spotify app for free users also includes a data saving function, which can minimize the amount of data consumed by streaming.

“Our customers always tell us that music discovery and listening is a personal experience, and we are enhancing the free experience with this in mind,” said Babar Zafar, VP of Product Development at Spotify. “This is the beginning of an evolution for Spotify and we will continue to make improvements that mirror our customers’ needs. This is not only about giving users a more customized free experience from the day they sign up, but giving them more control over their listening experience so they can easily find and stream their favorites anytime, from anywhere.”

With the changes, Spotify will also become more open and attractive to non-paying users. According to Spotify, the number of free users is around 85 million, with another 71 million paying monthly for the music streaming service. Nothing changes for these premium users.
