Earlier this summer, Spotify held an event in New York City and announced a slew of new features. It was part of their initial jump into video. They also announced podcasts coming to Spotify, and Spotify Running. Basically Spotify Running is a group of playlists that can be played when you are out running in the morning to get you pumped up.
Spotify says that with their Running feature, they have combined the best music with recommendations based on your listening history. There are also multi-genre playlists as well as original running compositions. To get started, you just select your tempo and start running. Through their algorithms they will match the perfect music in time to your step, and in essence will help you go that extra mile. The update to the Spotify app is rolling out today through the Google Play Store, and should be available to everyone in the next few days.
For anyone that goes running on a daily basis, music is a big part of being able to run longer distances. It’s something that most streaming music services haven’t really tapped into just yet. But Spotify has, and being one of the more popular streaming music services out there, it’s libel to get others to tap into running as well. Of course when you’re running, you’re going to want to get a decent pair of headphones to listen to your music. So check out our top 10 headphones under $50, there are some really good ones in there, especially for those that are runners.
Currently, Spotify is available on a variety of platforms including Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Mac, Windows and many others. It’s paid version is going for $9.99/month and is a great service to subscribe too.
