Spotify is looking to expand its support for its free music streaming service, if rumors are to be believed. The Verge reports that Spotify is trying to negotiate with music labels to allow for this feature. Currently, Spotify’s free streaming service is ad-supported, and only available on a computer. This deal would see the free service expanding to mobile devices.
Spotify is one of the few alternatives to iTunes that is currently growing. Spotify’s biggest advantage is that it is streaming, and so can be transferred from device to device. Apple’s attempts to bring iTunes to the cloud have so far been met with little success, so it seems as if Spotify is trying to play its cards in a way that ensures that it will become the dominant music player on mobile.
Would you replace the venerable iTunes and iPod.app combination with Spotify?
