Dans le monde des algorithmes prescripteurs, Spotify vient de franchir un nouveau pas. Depuis quelque temps déjà, le service de streaming musical suggérait des dates de concerts pour les artistes d’une playlist en cours. Il suffisait de se laisser porter, d’écouter et de voir une mention apparaître avec les dates et lieux où le groupe se produirait. Maintenant, Spotify joue également la carte de la recommandation, en suggérant d’assister à des concerts d’artistes qui semblent… [Lire la suite sur ActuaLitté]

Spotify ouvre ses statistiques aux artistes pour les convaincre de rester

Les artistes ne croient pas vraiment au modèle mi gratuit / mi payant de sites de streaming musical. Spotify active un levier pour tenter de les convaincre : ouvrir (gratuitement) les vannes de la data.

De nombreux artistes considèrent que les sites de streaming musical offrant un accès gratuit financé par la publicité ne sont pas assez rémunérateurs. En 2014, Taylor Swift a (bruyamment) retiré ses titres des plates-formes en ligne, et de nombreux artistes l’ont imitée. Depuis, … [Lire la suite sur L’Usine Digitale]

First Click: Ok Apple, I’ll quit #Spotify because I’m a sheep (The Verge)

I’m canceling my four-year-old Spotify subscription not because Apple Music is a better overall service than Spotify, but because it’s better for owners of Apple devices. I’m an iPhone owner and I’ve grown accustomed to asking Siri to play specific bands, songs, albums, or playlists. “Hey Siri, play Beats 1 Radio,” I say and she delivers. And when I add a song on my iPhone at the gym, it’s automatically… [Read more on The Verge]

#Spotify has been growing even faster since the launch of Apple Music, according to its CEO (Business Insider)

Spotify‘s growth rate has actually increased since the release of Apple Music, CEO Daniel Ek said Monday, according to Bloomberg.
