RumorTT: Spotify to launch browser-based app, would include redesigned look

RumorTT: Browser-based, redesigned version of Spotify is coming

| Internet & Websites News | Posted: Sep 9, 2012 1:25 am

TechCrunch is reporting that music streaming and discovery service, Spotify, are close to launching a browser-based music player that would either compliment, or replace, the desktop Spotify application.

The desktop Spotify application hasn't really had a proper update in quite a while, with people wondering what's going on. But, if we're looking at a redesigned desktop app, pushed into the confines of a browser, it would make things much easier, and much more streamlined to push changes into the app.

 

This would save having to update the app, restarting it, and all that jazz. TechCrunch also reports that along with the browser-based app, Spotify would throw in a redesigned look which would help users discover music and playlists recommended by influencers.

 

There's also talk of a lower-priced subscription coming, too. At the moment, Spotify offers three options: free with ads, $4.99 for ad-free per month, or $9.99 for offline listening capabilities per month.
