Today, streaming music service Spotify launched in the US with all four major music labels on board. At the moment, the service is by invitation only but the widespread launch will have three options:
- Free ad-supported service: gives users access to a number of tracks through the web, lets users organize and listen to their own music and provides access to Spotify Social (allows users to post playlists to Facebook) . There will be no time limits as part of the introductory offer but eventually there will be a cap of 20 hrs per month.
- $4.99 Per Month: Ad free service and access to Spotify Radio mode.
- $9.99 Per Month: Mobile access to playlists, access to offline modes for desktop & mobile devices and access to exclusive content
