Spotify now publishes top 50 charts as free-to-play

Best of all, music lovers can listen to the top 50 tracks for free, without having to sign in or even register for Spotify. Why are Spotify doing this? Well, it would be a great way to get users to notice the service, take a look around, enjoy it and then sign up for their premium subscription. Right now, the music streaming service features over 24 million active users, but only 6 million of those are paid subscribers.

 

The top 50 charts should update automatically every Monday at around noon EST, with charts from previous weeks continuing to be made available for review, but it's not clear if users will be able to stream from them.
