Spotify Releases Free Radio App for Android

The social streaming service for music lovers is putting a radio in the pockets of Android users everywhere. One month after releasing its radio app to iOS users, Spotify has brought the app to the Android.


Listeners can create stations from artists, albums, or other playlists from Spotify’s entire library of songs. The last time we counted, there were 16 million. They can also look at their friends’ playlists for inspiration.

Much like Pandora, the songs come up automatically. Listeners can give a song a “thumbs up” or a “thumbs down” to train the app to pull up songs they’ll actually like.

One cool feature is that any song that listeners “like” on the app will appear on their desktops when they get home.

Spotify’s radio app is free to download, but premium members (who pay a monthly fee) can listen to the radio without advertisements. The app is available now at the Google Play Store.
