Spotify announces new features

11 December 2012

In a press event with Daniel Ek, Lars Ulrich and Sean Parker, Spotify last week previewed a host of planned new social features designed to enhance the discovery and sharing of music via its streaming service, including:

  • Follow-tab whereby users can follow music recommendations from artists, friends and media
  • Discover-tab which will make intelligent music recommendations based on listening history, followed artists and friends
  • Audio-preview which will allow users to preview music without disturbing current streaming activity
  • New Collection which will enable users to more easily save music to listen to at a later date
  • Mobile push-messaging for new album releases

New features will be rolled out in desktop update in the coming weeks, with a full cross-platform coming update next year.

Spotify made the announcements in a live streamed press conference hosted by CEO Daniel Ek who was joined by Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich  and Napster founder Sean Parker. Watch the video here.
