There are more and more music columns with associated or supported streaming services. In colonies with Spotifi, Premium service is required, but it can take several days.
Spotifi says it will now allow users of the free version to stream music through columns that support Spotifi Connect.
Free Spotifi captures more benefits
We recently tested two examples of smart columns that rely on streaming music services. In the case of Apple HomePod, this device only supports Apple Music that does not have a template for free use (only 30 days for an attempt).
In the case of Bose speakers, the Bose Home Speaker 500, you have several services that you can connect to this column, among them Spotifi. If a previous version of Premium was required, now, in the opinion of the company, it will be possible to use a free account.
But when is it possible?
Do not exclude the column. To take advantage of this change, hardware vendors need to upgrade to the latest Spotify SDK.
Spotifi's free level still has constraints on Spotifi Premium, but in April, when it launched a rebuilt service application, it enabled users who did not pay much more freedom in what they heard.
Instead of being forced to change paths through the catalog, the service automatically generated the users of the free version 15 automatically generated playlists from which they could freely choose the music playback, although they still had to listen to the ads after several tracks.
Of course, Spotifi will not open much more, even because it is the core business of the Premium model. Therefore, it imposes restrictions on a free model, for example, it does not allow the download of songs to your smartphone or computer, to enjoy them in extraordinary situations and offer lower quality audio quality.
Will Premium users stop paying?
There may be some who do it, but that will certainly be the rest of the number. The fact that we can listen to music without commercials, we can download songs for listening outside, the top quality sound and other advantages, worth the investment.
