Music streaming services are all the rage nowadays, and if you haven’t given them a shot yet maybe it is time you do. Spotify recently rolled out a cool new feature to iOS devices they call “Touch Preview” that allow users to preview snippets of songs, albums, artists, or playlists before even hitting the play button. If you like the preview just swipe left to save the song to your library. It’s as simple as that. They have promised the feature across other platforms in the near future but as of right now it remains an iOS exclusive.
This made me wonder how many people actually use Spotify? Apparently the answer is a lot. Spotify is one of the leading music services in the world with over 15 million paying subscribers and 60 million active users, but it’s clear they won’t stop there as they are currently offering a few promotions to try their service for free. If you have yet to try it out, here are some ways to get your foot in the door.
Spotify has teamed up with LG electronics and are offering 6 months of free service with the purchase of a qualifying Smart TV or sound bar system. Once purchased all you have to do enter the serial number on the website, along with a photo of the receipt and contact information. Here is a list of qualifying products but be sure to do this soon as the offer ends on January 31st and is only open to residents in the states, DC, or Puerto Rico.
If you are not in the market for a Smart TV then head over to Spotify’s website and take the premium service out for a 60-day test drive. The free trial is normally one month but has been extended for a limited time. If you have previously tried the 30-day trial then you will not be eligible for this promotion as it is for new subscribers only. As the offer is available “while supplies last” it is probably a good idea to at least sign up today. Once the 60 days are over you will be charged $9.99 per month so make sure to cancel if it is not for you.
