Spotify is a streaming music service that adopts freemium business model. Free version of Spotify doesn’t allow you to skip songs or select an individual song to play as you wish. However, those restrictions actually apply only on the mobile version of Spotify (Android and iOS). If you use Spotify on Web (Spotify Web Player) or desktop, those restrictions don’t apply. On Spotify Web Player, you can skip any song and play individual songs as you want. You can also create as well as manage playlists.
Spotify mobile — be it free or premium — actually allows you to create and manage playlists as well. But again, the songs within the playlists cannot be played sequentially. Instead, they will be played randomly. You won’t also be able to skip the currently playing song.
Spotify Web Player allows you to do anything regarding the songs, with the exception of downloading them. With over 30 million songs available on its database, Spotify is a great music player to accompany your daily routine at work. You can create playlists and add your favorite songs to them. Here is how create and manage playlists on Spotify Web Player.
