Spotify Premium adds personalized artist radio stations, improved search and more

  1. Spotify is rolling out a major update for its paid Premium tier that further improves on the popular streaming service.

    Streamlined navigation and personalized search make it easier for people to quickly find content, whether they know what they’re looking for or want to explore something new. If it’s the latter, the Top Genres section at the top of the screen is said to be a great place to start.

    The biggest new feature coming to Spotify, however, is called Endless Artist Radio. Similar in concept to the exploration feature that helped popularize Pandora, Endless Artist Radio allows a subscriber to build a playlist based on a specific musician or song. The feature offers an “endless listening stream” that’s updated regularly and can even be downloaded and played offline.

    It’s been a busy week for Spotify as the streaming music leader recently released a new smartwatch app for Wear OS devices and announced a partnership with DistroKid to help artists distribute their music on other platforms.

    Spotify’s Premium tier updates are rolling out now to Android and iOS subscribers around the globe.

    The offline radio is mighty impressive, I'm definitely going to check that one out.

    Kudos Spotify!

    On a different note, I just tried playing Spotify on Roku last night, and it stated that Spotify is updating the app for Roku and that it would return soon...

    Thank goodness too, because it was absolutely terrible.
