Spotify Launches New Features

Spotify recently launched new features, including one that will allow users to sync the songs in their Spotify playlists to their iPods.

In addition to the new opportunity to sync music to iPods, the Swedish music service has changed the way that customers are able to download music. Users who take advantage of the service’s free plan will now be able to purchase songs in bundled packages rather than individually.

Users of the free service will be able to access Spotify’s iPhone and Android application as well, allowing them to sync their playlists to their phones.

“From today, Spotify really is the only music player you’ll ever need,” Daniel Ek, the company’s founder and CEO, said in a statement. “Our users don’t want to have to switch between music players, but they do want to take their playlists with them wherever they go, on a wider range of devices, more simply and at a price they can afford. Now we’ve made that possible on one of the world’s most popular consumer devices.”

The European music service has over 1 million subscribers, but has yet to launch in the U.S. — although Spotify has signed deals with EMI and Sony.

The new features are available to customers now via automatic update.
