Swedish-based music-streaming service Spotify has already conquered Europe, and Americans are finally getting a chance to try it out. Spotify, which launched today in the United States, allows users to stream music from a preexisting library of 15 million songs, as well as share playlists with friends, take music on the go or import music from your computer.
There is currently a free ad-supported version of Spotify, though users can upgrade their packages for either $4.99 or $8.99 per month (download the program here). Premium users are able to use the service without advertisements, and songs have better sound quality.
Spotify launched in Europe in 2008, with 13 million tracks available for users. As of press time, it has 10 million registered users in Europe and over 1.6 million paying subscribers.
