Spotify announces unlimited free music on the web

Spotify preemptively strikes the streaming music market with the announcement of unlimited free music on the web

Spotify only recently raised an impressive $250 million, but how would the streaming music company use all of that money? Well, they have just slashed all of its limited on streaming ad-supported music on the web.

The streaming music outfit now allows you to have a totally unlimited music frenzy online, which comes in at a perfect time: a week before the launch of Beats, which was set to compete with Spotify with a gigantic marketing campaign, and promotional deals with AT&T and Ellen DeGeneres. Beats will be offering up a 7-day trial, which will make it much harder for it to compete with Spotify now.

 

Not only Beats, but everyone else: Spotify has the music streaming business to itself for the time being - and maybe the future.
