You’ll have to choose a package while signing up, and you can choose between the Free package or Premium package. The difference between both is that the free version allows you to only listen to the songs while premium version allows you to download them for offline listening. Also, there’re no ads in the premium version while free version has got some ads.
- Once you’ve signed up and logged in to your account, you can start searching for your desired music to start listening. Either you can get started with the top playlists given on homepage, or you can search for any of your desired songs using the search bar given in left pane. Once you’ve found a song that you would like to play you can start playing it by clicking the Play button on the left side of song’s name.
You can search for songs by using a number of different parameters: artist name, album name, song name etc. Also, as you listen to songs overtime Spotify will learn about your interests and will recommend new music based on those interests. You can find those recommendations by using the ‘Discover’ feature of Spotify.
So that’s how you can use Spotify using your web browser alone with help of Spotify Web Player. It’s one of the quickest ways to get some music in high-definition audio, which makes it a highly popular way of listening music worldwide. It’s such a successful service that music streaming providers in other countries have also taken this page out of Spotify’s playbook and launched their own respective versions of web-based music players. Therefore, you must give it a try.
