How does Spotify work?

2. On the Signup page, it is recommended to sign up with Facebook if you have a Facebook account already. This will make it easier to follow and find friends, see what musics they’re listening to and also share yours with them.
3. For the device you want to use the app on, simply download and install the application for free. Check the version before downloading, as there are Desktop, Andriod, iPhone, or iPad versions of the application.

Latest updates and services on Spotify
Spotify is planning to debut its in-app podcast subscription offering sooner. The company also decided not to take a cut from podcasters who choose to sell in-app subscriptions and also will allow its users to manually set the pricing that they want.
Users on the Spotify iOS app will be routed through the subscription website to purchase and set their subscription prices, thereby allowing podcasters to skirt around Apple’s fees. The company decided to announce this news right after Apple’s podcast integrated its own in-app subscriptions with plan subscriptions of $19.99 yearly to list their subscriptions as well as a 30 percent cut for the first year of subscription, and so this drops 15% for every following year.
Spotify also made it easy for her podcasters to sell access ad-free, bonus, or early-access content at any price they want to set.
The opportunity to also manage subscriptions across different or multiple platforms’ backends was allowed. Even though Apple doesn’t allow her podcasters to use RSS to distribute their unique and exclusive contents, they have to upload them manually through Apple’s system. Spotify has never accepted RSS, and presumably, her subscribers will have to do something similar to get their subscription content on the platform’s service.
