Spotify is a commercial music streaming service providing digital rights management-restricted content. Music can be browsed or searched by artist, album, genre, playlist, or record label. Free subscriptions can listen to music, interrupted by targeted advertisements. Paid "Premium" subscriptions remove advertisements and allow users to download music to listen to offline.
The service has also introduced social functions such as the ¨Follow¨ feature which allows following friends or artists and verified artist profiles.
Spotify was launched in October 2008 by Swedish startup Spotify AB. As of January 2015, the service has approximately 60 million users with 15 million subscribers.
Spotify offers music via on-demand streaming only.
Streams are offered in DRM-enforced Vorbis q5 or q9 format.

Spotify Analytics is the free tool that gives labels and distributors the data they need from Spotify by providing streaming stats and understanding performance across your entire catalogue.
If you run a label that has music on Spotify, you can use Spotify Analytics to access a number of features that aren’t available in Spotify for Artists—including album-level data, custom date ranges, playlist submission, and CSV export for every chart. In the coming months, we’ll be adding even more features, and we want you to be ready to take advantage.
We recently updated the onboarding process to make it simpler and more secure for you to get access to your catalogue in Spotify Analytics. To sign up, you’ll need a Spotify account, your work email address, and—if you’re the first person from your organization to request access—the URIs of at least 3 albums or songs that you’ve previously delivered to Spotify.
