Spotify Begins Beta Test of New Web Player, Full Launch Expected Next Year
Spotify users can soon get their music on without having to download an app, as a beta test is currently under way for a new web player. Only a small number of people were invited to the beta test, but it should launch in full next year. Spotify did not provide a specific release date or anything for the web player, but said "more details" will be available next year. Early reports on the web player say it won't require a subscription to use and will be ad-supported, which is exactly how the free version of Spotify's desktop app works. Spotify's web player could be a good option for people at work or school who can't download programs to their computer, as it would at least let them listen to music with ease. Keep it tuned here for more updates on the web player and when it'll go public.
