spotify is building a hardware team to take on homepod and echo

Spotify is cranking up its hardware efforts, building out its team as the streaming music company prepares to launch what’s expected to be its first smart speaker. A number of hardware-related job openings have emerged at Spotify, though it’s the new Operations Manager role which really spills the beans. “Spotify is on its way to creating its first physical products and setting up an operational organisation [sic] for manufacturing, supply chain, sales & marketing,” the job advert reads. “We are looking for a passionate and seasoned Operations Manager that will contribute in the creation of innovative Spotify experiences via connected hardware.”At the same time, there are several other open positions listed by Spotify for other hardware-related roles. The new Project Manager for hardware p

spotify might be building a smart speaker of its own

The ads show that the new "operations manager," "senior product manager: hardware production" and "project manager: hardware production and engineering," would be handling manufacturing and supply for the new product. That suggests Spotify is ready to start manufacturing soon, as the Guardian points out.Spotify is easily the most popular streaming app and works just fine on most hardware products. However, it's impossible for Android users to stream it over the Apple's HomePod (Mac and iOS users can do it via Apple's proprietary AirPlay protocol). That eliminates a bit chunk of users from both Apple and Spotify's ecosystems, depending on their loyalties.If Spotify does release a smart speaker, it could support Alexa or Google Assistant, or both, like models from Sonos and others.

spotify might be making its own smart speaker

A job posting on Spotify’s website suggests the company is looking to build a hardware unit of some kind.While no clear indication is given of what that product might be, it’s most likely a smart speaker.The smart speaker war is already in full swing, so it might be too little too late for Spotify. But it might have one distinct advantage.The fight for music streaming supremacy is mostly between Spotify and Pandora, the two largest services available in the United States. However, Apple and Google have a huge advantage over the two that might enable them to steal their thunder: hardware. With Google’s line of Home products and Apple’s new HomePod, the ease of getting customers to sign up for the platform offered by their hardware manufacturer could push Google and Apple to the top.Spotify

spotify’s hardware ambitions seem like a risky distraction

We can't be sure about what Spotify is actually trying to build in Stockholm, but its search for employees are in line with what you'd expect from a company trying to make a smart speaker. Last April, Spotify was looking for people with expertise in voice recognition and natural language processing. And more recently Spotify sought out someone with "graduate-level expertise" in natural language understanding to join its team in Boston and "multiple years of industrial experience in building conversational agents via speech or text (e.g., chatbots)." This focus on a spoken interface could apply to future, voice-controlled versions of the Spotify app, but it's not much of a stretch to think Spotify could be trying to build a Google Home or Sonos rival.Let's say for the sake of argument that'

spotify close to 'creating its first physical products'

Spotify's plan to create its own streaming hardware appears to ramping up, if several recent job postings are any indication. As spotted by Music Ally, a new job opportunity for an "Operations Manager -- Hardware Product" lets it be known that the Swedish company is "on its way to creating its first physical products and setting up an operational organisation for manufacturing, supply chain, sales & marketing."How far along in the process of creating its own hardware is unclear, but this hire would "define and manage" key elements like distribution, supply chain, logistics and customer service for the product(s). As some have pointed out, the ad suggests Spotify may be near the finish line in terms of designing the hardware and are now gearing up to manufacture it.The job is based in Stock

spotify for xbox one released today for free and premium users

Spotify for Xbox One is available for download today, with the new streaming music app finally launching on Microsoft’s console. Late to the game after the version of the Spotify player for Sony’s PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, its arrival is nonetheless a welcome one for gamers looking to escape the normal soundtrack for their favorite titles. It also takes advantage of Spotify’s cross-network control system, so that you don’t have to leave whatever you’re playing to change track. Just as on desktop and mobile, there’s support for all the usual Spotify playlists – including those organized by mood and genre – and access to your weekly Discover playlist and the new releases. Importantly, Spotify for Xbox One also supports background playback. That means, even if you’re playing a game, yo

students can subscribe to spotify and hulu for $5 per month

Yes, you read that correctly. For $5 per month, students can have the equivalent of a $10 Spotify Premium subscription bundled with a $8 Hulu subscription. If you want to see if you're eligible, you can visit Spotify Premium for Students' webpage. You must subscribe directly through Spotify to take advantage of this deal (in other words, if your cell phone plan comes with a free Spotify subscription, you're out of luck). And Spotify does verify enrollment through SheerID, so if you were hoping to use your old undergraduate email address to game the system, that's probably not going to work so well for you.Spotify has had a special pricing plan in place for US college students since 2014; it expanded the program to a total of 36 countries earlier this year.

spotify and discord join forces for group listening while gaming

Today we’re hearing of a rather surprising team up between Discord and Spotify. This new partnership will allow you to link your Discord and Spotify accounts, opening up a bunch of new music listening options when you’re chatting with friends in Discord. Perhaps the coolest of these new features is the ability to listen to Spotify tracks as a group.On the surface, Spotify functionality within Discord will work in a way that gamers are already used to. Just like it does when you’re playing a game, Discord will show others when you’re listening to Spotify in the user list of each server. From there, you can click on a user’s name to see exactly what they’re listening to.In the pop-up panel that appears when you click a username, you’ll see information like song title, artist and album name,

apple music paid subscribers to top spotify in us

According to folks in the record business, Apple Music has seen its paid subscriptions grow by 5 percent per month recently compared to 2 percent for the Swedish-based Spotify. Assuming this rate continues, Apple Music will overtake its competitoin total subscriptions this summer.As The Wall Street Journal explains:Apple’s music-streaming service has been quietly gaining ground in part thanks to the popularity of the company’s devices: Apple Music comes preloaded on all iPhones, Apple Watches and other hardware the company sells.Spotify’s expected to remain the No. 1 music subscription service, at least for now. This is remarkable given that Spotify’s available in 61 territories vs. 115 for Apple Music. First introduced in June 2015, Apple Music now has 36 million monthly paid subscriber

songshift 3.0 and switching between apple music and spotify – macstories

For the better part of this year, I’ve been using both Spotify and Apple Music. In my opinion, each service does a few things exceptionally well, but, unfortunately, I can’t have all of them in a single music app.Spotify’s discovery tools for both old and new songs are simply unparalleled in the industry: Discover Weekly continues to surprise me on a weekly basis just like mixtapes used to do. Spotify is everywhere (including my Amazon Echo); I like how it organizes releases on artist pages; and, it’s got a richer selection of user-generated playlists. Apple Music, on the other hand, looks much better than Spotify (I love Apple’s focus on album artworks and large photography), features built-in lyrics, is deeply integrated with the Apple ecosystem, and I’m a fan of the social feed launched
