Spotify introduces the announced variety of offerings to paid and free users. The first will get access to new albums two weeks before the rest.
Spotify is one of the few music services that works for popular artists for free. Of course, you can also pay for the subscription, but this does not affect the music offer, but only for additional options. But this will change now.
Music labels have long disliked the policy of the site, which provided the music they were able to listen to for free. They pressed for a change of strategy and finally got their way. Spotify has just announced that it is introducing a variety of musical offerings.
Subscribers to the service, who pay a subscription every month, get the latest albums of well-known artists so that they receive two weeks free of charge. The change of policy is part of a larger deal with the Universal Music Group, where certain albums will only be available for a limited time.
Artists will decide whether their latest albums will be available for two weeks exclusively to subscribers or whether they will be able to listen to them all at once.
