Spotify to enter 21st century, get browser-based player

By 09.10.12

If you listen to music at work, and would prefer to listen to your music through a browser like every other civilized human being, Spotify has frustratingly tried to stick you with a custom streaming app. For those of us who don’t have download privileges at work, that’s pretty useless.



Thankfully, they’re fixing the situation.

By all accounts, the terrible desktop app, which hasn’t been meaningfully updated in a year, will be ditched in favor of just opening a window in your browser. You know, like Amazon, Google Music, and most other music options in the modern day.

Part of this has been Spotify’s focus on mobile. They’ve been using their close ties to Facebook as a fairly unimpeachable ad network, and have four million subscribers to their mobile apps. They also have plenty of advertising revenue, but, again, that comes mostly from people tuning in on their smartphone or tablet.

That said, those who’d prefer to listen to their music when they’re on someone else’s computer finally have gotten some love. So rejoice! You’ll no longer be stuck with the musical selections of Joyce from accounting.

About Dan Seitz... Dan Seitz is a semi-professional nerd (he'll have to code a homebrew game for the NES before he goes pro). He grew up fiddling with video game systems, computers, cameras, and other technology you should never hand to an eight-year-old if you want it back in pristine condition. Currently, he lives in Boston with his girlfriend, her cat, a Shih Tzu, and far too many objects with processors.
