Can all Spotify songs be accessed via Spotify Free?

Yes, all Spotify songs are available to all Spotify users, including Spotify Free and Spotify Premium. You can also enjoy the Spotify Premium features without subscribing to the Premium plan. Just use the AudKit Spotify Playlist Converter to convert Spotify songs to MP3. The converted Spotify songs are ads-free and playable offline.

What's the difference between Spotify and Spotify Lite?

Spotify Lite is available for Android. It is a simplified version of the Spotify app. It has a similar look and feels, but with a few key differences. It uses less storage, data, and battery to optimize performance, making it ideal for older devices and operating systems.

Spotify is not only available for Android but also iOS, Windows OS, and macOS devices. As the Spotify Lite works on Android devices, it doesn't work well with AudFree Spotify Music Converter. To download Spotify music offline with a free account, you need to use the Spotify desktop app only.

How much does Spotify pay musicians?

There’s no simple answer, as Spotify has a fairly complicated payment structure, but by delving into the site’s terms of service and looking at a few recent stats, we can get a good idea of how much (or how little) artists make.

First, it’s important to recognize that a paid play (i.e., a play from a Spotify Premium user) pays differently than a free play. When a Spotify user listens to a song with the free version of the service, the copyright holder receives a payment from the site’s total generated ad revenue. When a user listens to a song on Spotify Premium, the copyright holder receives part of the site’s total subscription income.

As ad revenue, Spotify Premium subscription counts, and total play counts change, so do the payouts. Average artist payments change significantly from year to year.

In December 2018, Digital Music News published a list of average streaming royalty payouts from various streaming services. Spotify ranked toward the bottom of the list with an average payout of $0.00437 per play (that’s about 4 tenths of a cent). The publication estimated that a musician would need about 336,842 listens per month to make $1,472 (the federal minimum wage in the United States).

Another crucial note: Digital streaming payments go to the copyright holder, not straight to the artist. If an artist is on a label, their payments might be split among producers, songwriters, distributors, sampled artists, and anyone else who had a hand in the creation and promotion of the song. In other words, the artist might get a small fraction of that $0.00437.

Here’s how the other major streaming services compare, based on the late-2018 numbers:

  • Napster - $0.019 per play
  • TIDAL - $0.0125 per play
  • Apple Music - $0.00735 per play
  • Google Play Music - $0.00676 per play
  • Deezer - $0.0064 per play
  • Spotify - $0.00437 per play
  • Amazon - $0.00402 per play
  • Pandora - $0.00133 per play
  • YouTube - $0.00069 per play

So, why are streaming sites so stingy? For one, they don’t make much money—or, in some cases, any money. The only time Spotify has turned a profit in its 13 years of business was the last quarter of 2018. At this point, music subscription services haven’t quite figured out how to make significant revenue from their user bases.

Every major streaming service changes its payouts regularly, so take the numbers above with a grain of salt. The takeaway is that musicians don’t make much, but streaming services don’t, either.

How does Spotify check your address for Spotify Family?

Spotify has launched its instant listening app for iOS users. But the sad part is that it has been launched only in Australia for the time being. The release takes place nearly a year and a half after the Stations app hits on the market for the Android users in Australia. At the time of launch, music begins playing automatically- a feature that spotify hits rival Pandora already supports.

Not so much had been heard about Stations since its debut which could be indicative of the fact that it was an experiment that didn’t work out as expected. But it now seems that is not the case, given the new release to iOS.

Why do you prefer Tidal than Apple Music or Spotify?

Among Tidal, Apple Music and Spotify, I would like to choose Tidal to enjoy music as it offers high audio quality to users.

But it also has restrictions as Apple Music and Spotify. That is users can use the music from Tidal on other devices and platforms.

Luckily, I found a tool called DRmare Tidal to MP3 Converter to help me so that I can use the Tidal music freely. But the music just can be used by your own.

Why is Google Play Music is going away soon?

YouTube Music is replacing Google Play Music as your new destination for music listening and discovery. Between October and the end of this year, access to Google Play Music will be removed permanently. We know that you’ve spent time building your Google Play Music library, so we’ve made it easy to transfer your music library to YouTube Music with just one click, including playlists, uploads, and recommendations.

If you haven’t tried YouTube Music yet, you’ll notice that it looks a bit different from Google Play Music, but know that it was built by the same team with the same passion. It also offers more than 65 million official songs, albums, and playlists, as well as many features you love and expect from Google Play Music.

With all that said, here are a few more things you should know:

Google Play Music library and data

In addition to transferring your library to YouTube Music, you have the option to download any music that you’ve purchased or uploaded to Google Play Music, as well as a list of the tracks, playlists, and radio stations in your library. We’ll notify you before you’ll lose access to your Google Play Music library and data. You can also delete your Google Play Music data.

Music Manager and uploads

Uploading and downloading music with Music Manager will be discontinued starting in 30 days. But don’t worry – you can always upload your personal music collection to YouTube Music or download your existing tracks via Google Takeout.

Music store on Google Play

Starting in 30 days, the Music store on Google Play will go away. It won’t be possible to purchase music on Google Play anymore, and all pre-orders will be canceled. Once you transfer, your purchases will move with you to YouTube Music.

A new home for podcasts

With Google Play Music going away, you won’t be able to listen to podcasts there anymore. You can transfer your subscriptions and episode progress to Google Podcasts, our dedicated podcast player available for free on Android, iOS, and the web. With Google Podcasts, you can sync playback across devices and discover new podcasts you’ll love. Transfer to Google Podcasts.

Radio and background play

Background play is only available to paid users of YouTube Music. However, the free version of the music app allows background play for your uploaded or purchased songs and streaming on smart devices with Google Assistant.
