Spotify brings Pandora-like functionality to Android, stream free

Spotify's new app brings Pandora-like streaming to Android, stream free just like Pandora

| Apps News | Posted: Jul 31, 2012 2:02 pm

Stop me if you've heard this one before. There's a new free app that allows you to stream music by creating a radio station based upon a song. The kind of music playing can be adjusted by giving playing tracks a thumbs-up or thumbs-down. Why didn't you stop me? That's basically exactly what Pandora does!

However, the new app I am speaking of is not Pandora. Instead, it is a free streaming offering from Spotify. Spotify's new app does basically exactly what Pandora does, right down to playing ads to free listeners. I'm not exactly sure why anyone would pick Spotify over Pandora as they do the same thing.

 

Be that as it may, competition is good so we may see better apps out of both companies, fewer ads, or other incentives to use one app over the other. This same app was released for iOS last month and delivers the same functionality. The app is available in the Google Play store for free. Paying users don't have to listen to ads.
