Spotify rolls out radio streaming for Android

PanARMENIAN.Net - After adding a radio feature to its iOS app in June, Spotify has now done the same for Android users, Mashable said.

The feature, which is available only to Premium subscribers, lets users listen to an unlimited number of stations and songs.

Users can also create stations based on an artist, album or playlist, or save songs to their Spotify playlists. Finally, giving certain songs thumbs up (or down) should better tailor the stations to users’ interests.

Spotify users who aren’t Premium subscribers can try the feature out by signing up for 30-day free trial. The app is available over at Google Play.

Over at the Global Business Summit on Creative Content in London, Spotify’s CCO Ken Parks also announced Spotify now has more than 15m active users and more than 4m paying subscribers — a significant improvement over the 175,000 paying customers the service had in August 2011.
