Spotify's Spiffy Update Adds Radio Streaming to Android App

Paul Lilly

Good news for Android users who are fans of Spotify. The spunky streaming music service just launched its free unlimited radio feature on the Android platform for users living in the U.S., bringing the service up to par with its iOS counterpart that received the same upgrade about a month ago. Previously the only way Android users were able to listen to free music on the go with Spotify was to sign up for a 48-hour trial.

"Exciting news for Android users! Starting today, you can now enjoy Spotify on your Android for free!," Spotify announced today . "Our latest app now offers free radio - the only radio where you can save the songs you love. It’s never been easier to discover, save and enjoy an unlimited amount of music on the go."

The entire catalog -- "millions of songs" -- is available on mobile. Music listeners can fine tune their streaming experience by creating stations based on artist, album, or playlist, and then give songs a thumbs up or thumbs down. Essentially the same can be said about Pandora, and like its rival, Spotify will interrupt the stream with occasional ad breaks for free users.

Unfortunately for Kindle Fire users, Spofity is still not available in the Amazon Appstore for Android.
