Spotify launched in South Africa

The Swedish-based service gives users access to millions of songs from all major record labels, including a large selection of South African artists, they can choose to stream the music or download it for later listening if they upgrade their account. "We hope to better understand how Spotify listeners interpret music, so that we can improve experiences for both listeners and artists". The new feature allows fans to suggest different information pertaining to the song including an artists alias, explicitness and more.

Spotify's enormous lead over Apple notwithstanding, some industry observers believe that Apple Music may catch up to and overtake Spotify in just a few months because it appears to be growing at a much faster clip.

Spotify first began testing Line-In with a subset of its audience last fall. Clicking a ✓ indicates your confirmation of that data, and clicking the ✕ tells us that data is incorrect. "We've also seen that listeners are eager to describe the music they're passionate about in ways beyond traditional concepts like genre and mood". That's why the company added the ability to use tags as descriptors as well. The leading streaming music provider remains Spotify, which has 71 million paid customers for its premium service. New edits will also be checked before becoming official. If you're totally off from what other people suggest in past edits, it might be harder for your contributions to be considered. Back in 2014, Spotify acquired The Echo Nest, a music metadata provider, for a reported $100 million.
