If anyone is interested I have been looking into a way of making a 'spotifone' so that I can make an offline Spotify media player for under £50, as that's how I consume nearly all my music these days.

Results are in this thread (plus a couple of utter knob heads)

Good idea that, I always end up taking my phone biking with me as I basically only use Spotify and I don't like taking anything expensive when I'm likely to get soaked to the skin.

I think Apple and co miss a trick by not making a Spotify enabled Nano or something. But even that wouldn't have enough storage.

WOW...... why have I only just got this? It's awesome.
Pretty much everything I've searched for is on there, even obscure stuff and it saves me having to have gigs and gigs of music stored on my phone.

For some reason I always thought it was like Tune-In radio (which I love too) so didn't need it.


Really such a great app/service.

Thought it was only me, it's atrocious! You change tracks and 5 seconds later you see the name of the track... Not great when you are trying to drive!
;D  Mate of mine and me are the same, everyone swears we are brothers when we're out. He calls me slaphead, I call him slaphead, so when I see him I go "slap" and he replies "slap. People be looking and thinking what the f**k are these 2 on  ;D
but he's a blue nose, so he's a c*nt

+1 for hating the mobile app update. Abysmally slow and when it does catch up with itself half the time it just crashes.

Had it at home for a while. Like it. Installed it at work.  Damn thing won't let me log on because of work firewall. Anyone got any non career threatening workarounds?
A bit late perhaps but for me it works through the app though not through a browser.

Been using Spotify Free for years, always found it a great way to listen to albums before purchasing.

Recently got a deal with new mobile contract so I get Spotify Premium for free, for 6 months. As good as it is (not to have ads), I don't think I'd be willing to pay for it after the 6 months are up.

Also, I thought someone would have developed a sort of Ad Blocker to filter out the Spotify audio ads by now...  :-\

I pay, because I want to contribute to the artists. I know the system isn't perfect with money going back to the them, but Id largely blame the labels for that. Two or three labels pretty much own the entire music industry even that cool little indie independent record label you love.

What Spotify need to do to stop having issues with artists is to pull their free music or at least stagger the release so the paying customers get new records earlier. My other issues with it is, when I buy a record I can have it forever if I so wish, with Spotify, I don't have any such comforts. I am merely renting my music and am at the will of artists and labels on whether I get to hear it or not.

Overall, it's the best thing to come around since piracy basically fucked up everything, though it still has a long way to go until it is as fair as it pertains to be.

I've recently signed up.  I like the idea of having my playlists available offline whilst at the gym.  I think things have almost come full circle in regards to paying for music in that you pay for the convenience as opposed to the actual media.

Offline playlists are the reason I go for the paid version as well, personally I find that hugely useful for my commute each day.

I pay, because I want to contribute to the artists. I know the system isn't perfect with money going back to the them, but Id largely blame the labels for that. Two or three labels pretty much own the entire music industry even that cool little indie independent record label you love.

Overall, it's the best thing to come around since piracy basically fucked up everything, though it still has a long way to go until it is as fair as it pertains to be.

The problem with doing things like staggering releases so that paid subscribers for streaming sites get this later than the album release is that you significantly reduce the benefits of the streaming model, maybe the music industry is happy to do that, thinking it will drive more album sales, personally my view is that it probably just drives more piracy.

Streaming services as it stands actually offer greater convenience and functionality than piracy for many users, the same can't really be said for physically buying or even downloading an album legally.

I agree the economics may not be amazing for artists and labels but its a lot better than having the content taken for nothing, the golden days of being able to make a good living from selling recorded content is over for a lot of acts anyway, get exposure for your music any way you can and try to make money from touring and other ancilliary revenue.

Sorry for opening up an old thread.

Has anyone got the spotify family account? I was wanting to get my dad spotify for xmas and he lives in a different house. I doubt this is the initial intention for spotify family but would anything stop me doing this?

The only information on the FAQ say they can't be in a different country. Cheers

Could anyone who's on Spotify Premium do me a massive favour?

They emailed out loads of codes out for 20% off SONOS speakers randomly to Premium members in the last 24 hours and I didn't get one. If you did happen to get a code and you won't use the discount, could I have the code please? Renovating my house at the moment and this would save me a packet. Would be enormously grateful.

They killed that code whilst I was trying to buy this morning - about 10am. It accepted SPOT20 and in the 20 seconds it took to process the transaction, the code died. Typical. So now it is only open to those that got an email.

I've only just discovered this Spotify Family Premium. They don't seem to advertise it widely.

For a single account, it's £9.99. But for a family account, with up to 6 users, it's £14.99. Works out great value. So we've just distributed the spare logins amongst our family. Spotify stipulate that everyone must live in the same house, but I don't see how they can police that. So far so good anyway. Would definitely recommend.

If anyone has a family member with an NUS card then you get 50% off. I look like the 40yr old student on my card (I get it through work), but it's a lifesaver.

Hi, didn't know where to put this as I couldn't find a specific Google Home thread or one for Spotify so thought I'd put it here. Spotify are offering a free Google Home Mini for new and existing customers of their Family Premium plan. Link below:
