Spotify has recently rolled out a new rewards program in India, which allows subscribers to earn points that can be converted to cash. In addition, the platform now offers ad-free listening, group listening sessions, and voice isolation for podcast creators.
If you use Spotify for your music, you may want to know how to avoid the ads. After all, they are pretty annoying. The free version of Spotify lets you skip a song every fifteen minutes, but you get interrupted by ads in between.
You can also use the premium version of Spotify. The Premium Plan starts at $9.99 a month. With this subscription, you have access to a huge library of music, plus offline listening capabilities.
The new Premium Plan offers ad-free streaming for six months. However, this is only available to new subscribers. If you have an existing subscription, you will have to pay the full price.
The Sponsored Session is another way that you can get some ad-free listening. This ad unit is similar to a video ad, but only shown when your screen is in view.
The music streaming app, Spotify, has announced the rollout of its new rewards program for users in India. This new feature will enable users to earn rewards through the use of its premium plans. The program is designed for the Asian market and will be rolled out to other countries soon.
Until now, the company offered premium plans for up to Rs 119 a month in India. However, starting December 2020, it will begin offering more affordable options to Indians. This includes a Premium Mini plan that allows ad-free listening for a week. It also features the option to download songs for offline playback.
Spotify is currently testing the Premium Mini plan in India. This new feature allows users to download up to 30 songs. The company is not revealing any other details yet.
Group listening sessions
The biggest digital music platform, Spotify, has introduced a new feature: Group listening sessions. With this new feature, users can listen to music together with friends, and control the playback with their device.
While the feature is still in beta, it will soon become the norm. It is now possible for Premium Mini subscribers in India to join group listening sessions and receive rewards for their use of the app.
To participate in a group session, you will need to create an appropriate playlist, and invite other users to join your session. Then, you can listen to music, control the playback, and share your experiences with friends.
For non-members, a group session costs $4.99. You can create and join group sessions with up to five people. When you have created a group session, you can choose tracks to add to the main queue, which will be queued on the device you initiate the session.
Voice isolation feature for podcast creators
Spotify, the largest music streaming service in the world, is rolling out a new voice isolation feature for podcast creators in India. It has also announced a new programme that will help emerging podcasters grow their audience.
In addition to the new audio isolation feature, Spotify has rolled out a podcast audio enhancement tool to improve the audio quality. The feature, dubbed as the “most valuable editing tool” by Spotify, is available to all users. The company describes the feature as being a simple, one-button solution to reduce background noise and enhance recorded audio.
The audio enhancement tool is available for free to all Anchor creators. Earlier this year, the company began rolling out video podcast publishing to select markets. However, it was not yet possible to know if video podcasts increased the amount of time listeners spent watching.
Greenroom Creator Fund
Spotify has recently launched a new rewards program in India, with the intention of increasing its user base in the Asian region. The company is planning to launch the program in other Asian countries in the near future.
The program will offer rewards to users for using the app. It will also feature challenges. The program will be available on iOS and Android devices. It will provide premium subscription access for one account. It also includes ad-free music listening.
The program was originally announced in June last year. It was meant to encourage creators. It will pay them based on the number of tune-ins. However, it has not yet been confirmed whether the fund will still be paid out. The amount is estimated to be about $100 million.
