It looks like Spotify is closer to a deal in the U.S. Whether or not you folks in the land of red, white, and blue know it, this is a very good thing.
Spotify is a very cool music streaming service. Presently, one gets to choose from 13 million tracks, but I’m hoping that number will increase once the U.S. deal is signed. Everyone knows there’s a lot more music to be had in U.S. markets.
A few quick things really I like about Spotify:
- Easy to use interface. This matters a great deal to folks who don’t want to spend too much time figuring out how things work.
- The ability to share music on Facebook. Those of you who are my Facebook friends have surely seen the occasional song I share from my Spotify account.
- If a Facebook friend who has a Spotify account is interested in that song, they can simply click on the link and have a listen. If they really like the song they can simply click the “Get” button to buy it.
