Spotify is a Swedish proprietary music streaming service that allows instant listening to specific tracks or albums, with virtually no buffering delay. Music can be browsed by artist, by album, by record label or by created playlists as well as by direct searches.
The service can be downloaded for free, but it is currently needed that one receives an invitation from an existing member to sign up for an account. When using the free version of Spotify, there will be broadcasted commercials in between songs and commercials will be shown in the main window. The free version is only available in Norway, Sweden, Great Britain, France and Spain. One can also choose to be «Premium Member»
by paying a monthly fee of 99 NOK (also available as a day pass for 9 NOK), which gives access to all songs without any commercial breaks. In Norway, Spotify Premium can be bought at Narvesen and 7-Eleven.
Spotify offers music from many of the great record labels, including: Universal, EMI, Warner Music and more.
