Spotify is updated to compete with Apple Music
The introduction of the streaming music platform of the Californian firm, Apple Music was a new obstacle for Spotify, but the prestigious application has not stalled. Spotify developers have decided to counterattack the Cupertino company with new features that appeal to the public.
To stay on top of streaming music applications, Spotify presented a new update plan that will bring more features. Recently, personalized playback, the news section and the possibility of playing videos and podcasts had been included, but everything seems to indicate that there is still more.
Spotify redesigns its streaming music service
Spotify has a big problem and it's called Apple Music. Since Apple presented its music service via streaming and its online radio available 24 hours, the main managers of Spotify have been thinking of different possibilities to recover users and prevent migration. It doesn't seem to be a simple task when Apple It has such a reputation and can carry your application installed by default on thousands of devices, but still Spotify has an advantage. It has been in the market for several years and has established itself as a brand specifically dedicated to the online music service via streaming.
The latest major update of Spotify added custom playlists on iPhone and iPad, but with all the time they had to present their application, in Apple They added similar options. Today Apple Music has half of Spotify users and continues to grow, the fear of Spotify executives is that users migrate to the platform of Apple and thus end up losing first place among music apps via streaming.
The new update of Spotify will arrive to Android and iOS simultaneously and shortly, but the official release date for these new features is still unknown. Nor was too much information given about what could be included as new, but if they are looking to avoid migration to Apple Music will surely be new functions with a level of importance greater than a simple bug fix. Otherwise there are many possibilities for users to continue moving towards the application of Apple.
In the war of music applications via streaming, Spotify continues to lead the market, but does not sleep on the laurels and already thinks of new options to continue increasing a difference that is being reduced over time. What do you think they will add to differentiate themselves?
