Top Tools: Spotify

Spotify is a digital music, podcast, and video streaming service that gives you access to millions of songs and other content from artists all over the world. Basic functions such as playing music are totally free, but you can also choose to upgrade. 

There are lots of music streaming services to choose from, but one that stands out for me, is Spotify.

Spotify competes with the likes of Apple Music, Google Play Music etc and also does podcasts and has been successful because it is stable, and has genuinely useful features like super-smart playlists, podcasts and social sharing, and most recently video podcasts.

Spotify can be used for free but for a better ad free experience you can sign up for a subscription. Spotify gives you 4 choices a single account a ‘couple’ account a family account (up to 6 Accounts) great value for £14.99 and a bargain student account for £4.99.


Spotify will suggest tracks for you to listen to and if you are on a subscription you can shuffle and skip tracks freely. The free account lack these options.


Some of the features of Spotify are;

  • Search
  • Library
  • Shuffle play
  • Download music and podcasts
  • Share music and podcasts
  • Spotify Radio
  • View lyrics
  • Podcasts
  • Videos

  • Follow friends and artists
  • Friend Activity
  • Artist profiles
  • Crossfade tracks

Podcasts on Spotify are a great and recently increasing feature. While it doesn’t give you the option to rate podcasts on Spotify, many high profile broadcasters have sworn their allegiance to the platform.
