There’s no doubt about it: streaming services like Spotify have revolutionized the way we listen to music. Where once enjoying music meant first rifling through a stack of CDs or paying (and waiting) for a download, Spotify instead offers 100 million tracks at the touch of a button.
Spotify has also changed how we find music. For example, personalized playlists, powered by algorithms based on the user’s music taste, meant that Spotify recommended over 30% of overall listening in 2017. Tracks by little-known artists that otherwise would remain obscure are pushed to the forefront and up the charts, thanks again to Spotify’s playlists.
