Spotify's New Feature Will Let Users Edit Song Information

Spotify's New Feature Will Let Users Edit Song Information

"This will help us improve, extend, and confirm the metadata Spotify saves", says Spotify, "which will in turn help us improve user experiences and create a more comprehensive ecosystem for Artists & Creators". Like Apple Music, Spotify's premium service is also priced at $9.99 per month. Using the desktop app, users can access a new feature called Line-In by clicking on the three dots next to songs, albums, or artists, and selecting "suggest an edit".

Spotify first began testing Line-In with a subset of its audience last fall.

The South African launch comes ahead of Spotify's plan to list in NY.

The platform is now accepting music metadata suggestions from it users. The company explained, "Spotify considers the source, and thoroughly reviews and checks the accuracy of this information, before the suggestions are folded into the data that powers our services". New edits will also be checked before becoming official. And if you completely mess up on your hip-hop test, you might have a harder time making your future contributions about the genre count.

The world's largest music streaming service has gone live in South Africa, a day before the company is due to hold a press conference to announce its local launch. As it stands now, Spotify currently boasts more than 70 million paying subscribers and more than 159 million active users, the majority of which take advantage of the company's ad-supported tier.

There's no doubt that when it comes to streaming services, Spotify's leading the pack.
