Spotify Trumps iTunes Radio With Curated Playlists For Every Moment And Mood
When we wrote about the previous major update to Spotify, we noted that it had the potential to make the app the best music streaming service on iOS. Well, if that update hasn't fully realized said potential, the latest update to Spotify will most likely do. The app's previous update introduced Discover, a feature that lets you discover great music from Spotify's personalized recommendations. For its part, the app's new update, which is yet to go live, introduces Browse, a new feature that lets you discover even more great music in several different ways. Browse seems to combine the best of iTunes Radio and Songza in offering curated playlists in addition to presenting the latest in music:
According to Spotify's announcement (via Engadget), Browse will be gradually rolled out today on iOS as well as on Android. Of course, we'll be sure to let you know once this significant update goes live in the App Store, where Spotify for iOS is available to download for free.
