The company has announced a new feature, Line-In, where customers can add to the streaming service's metadata, correcting or adding to songs' current genres.
There's no doubt that when it comes to streaming services, Spotify's leading the pack. Spotify offers a free tier of service that is supported by ads. The new feature allows fans to suggest different information pertaining to the song including an artists alias, explicitness and more. Clicking a ✓ indicates your confirmation of that data, and clicking the ✕ tells us that data is incorrect. The premium account will cost users R59.99 per month, the same price as competitors Apple Music, Deezer, and Google Paly Music.
Once users have accessed the Line-In web interface, they can make suggestions about the song's genre, mood, and other attributes. "We've also seen that listeners are eager to describe the music they're passionate about in ways beyond traditional concepts like genre and mood". Based on the pricing of company stock traded on private markets, the company, launched in 2008 and headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, is valued at $23.4 billion.
