Spotify Radio is now available on iOS devices for free. The function, which has been available on Spotify’s desktop application, is similar to Pandora in that it allows users to select a song or artist before Spotify begins playing similar content. Spotify’s mobile application offers a ton of features, including offline caching, playlists and more, but it has typically only been accessible to Spotify’s premium members who spend $9.99 per month. Those features will still require a subscription, but the Spotify Radio option is free. Like Pandora, users will only be able to skip a few songs before they’re forced to listen to one of them. In addition, songs will be recommended based on your history or liking or disliking the tracks Spotify plays for you.
