being premium-only makes it kinda pointless. The minority of a minority will use it.

I am the consumer. I think that Spotify sucks. Cool, you get to listen to 128 bit rate songs. You might as well plug your speakers into a potato and smack that shit with a stick.

Yeah with a premium account you can adjust the quality. You get what pay for.

Also, lol to all the people saying who listens to music on their TV. Ever heard of Apple TV? A lot of people have their sound system hooked up to their TV, easier to stream through it than unhook that system or switch plugs when they want to listen to music.

Almost exactly what I do. Run spotify from phone to Apple TV. Apple TV to speaker system. I could not be happier with the quality and ease.

precisely, Smart TVs just eliminate the mediator of Apple TV.

You people are crazy, I can't tell the difference between 128 and 320. I did countless tests too.

Setting the stage for Apple to make this idea actually worthwhile sometime in the next 2 years.

Samsung shouldve made it free for spotify to be used on their devices. Then I'd care.
