Spotify Launches Service in Israel at $6 a Month

Spotify has announced the launch of Line-In, a new platform geared towards allowing Spotify users to recommend metadata tags for songs and albums.

From there, they are taken to Line-In's web interface, which lets them suggest a wide variety of attributes, including the language of the lyrics of any given song, aliases used by an artist and even links to external websites. "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".

Spotify first began testing Line-In with a subset of its audience last fall. Based on the pricing of company stock traded on private markets, the company, launched in 2008 and headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, is valued at $23.4 billion. They also check to see on how accurate your past suggestions have been. "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", its spokesperson clarified. New edits will also be checked before becoming official. If you're totally off from what other people suggest in past edits, it might be harder for your contributions to be considered.

Spotify has launched in South Africa.

Amazon Music Unlimited has 16 million paying subscribers, and Pandora Media Inc has 5.48 million total subscribers. The leading streaming music provider remains Spotify, which has 71 million paid customers for its premium service.
