How to Use Spotify

After you download Spotify, launch it and sign in using your Facebook or email account. In the top left header of your player is a search function.

  1. Search for a song. Spotify has over 15 million tracks so the songs you like are sure to be found, with the exception of those by The Beatles and Led Zeppelin. Once you find your track, you may search for a band. You can also click on the track to launch the album, as well. After you find your track, add it to your playlist. This will store your tracks and albums in your library. The playlists conveniently list themselves on the left-hand side of the player and the library is there, as well. Search your heart out!
  2. Next, go to the left sidebar (where your playlist is) and click on App Finder. Not everybody knows exactly what they want as listening to music is about discovery. These apps are here to help you make a decision easier. Plus, you might discover some sick tracks.Once you open the App Finder, you’ll notice a display of Featured Apps, New Apps, and Top Apps. If you add an app, it will be found in the left sidebar under Apps. Launch a few. If you like Billboard Top Charts, there’s an app for that. If you like Pitchfork.com, there’s an app for that.
  3. Take musical cues from your friends on Facebook. Pair up your account with your Facebook pals and raid their playlists, subscribe to them, view their top artists and tease them on their timeline about their choices! Sounds fun, doesn’t it? Your friends probably have great taste in music, so it is possible to discover some hot new bands.
  4. Discover new music on Spotify. By clicking on the “Discover” tab on the left sidebar, you’ll see Spotify picks based on what you’ve been listening to and also what they’d like to sell you, which is usually new releases. You never know what Spotify will suggest and if you’re hungry for new tunes, this is the place.

Happy streaming!
