Spotify is keeping mum though about what exactly will occur at the December 11th event. However, the media has a way of finding out anything and everything about a slated happening. And according to the latest news, it is a free mobile access scheme that Spotify wants to launch on the occasion of the event.
Up until now, Spotify fans could only gain access to premium music services for a $10 monthly fee. They could have the annoying ads deleted from the songs for a mere $5. However, these strictures were the product of a bygone age when things were slower. With the coming of smart phones and high speed networks, the rules have changed.
Currently, the world runs on mobiles. Spotify needed to diversify if it was to survive. People don’t own PCs anymore. Besides, there are new competitors on the scene such as Apple’s iTunes Radio as well as Rdio, Slacker and Deezer. To become a setup in its own right, Spotify will have to toughen up and smarten up.
