Until now, Spotify’s free accounts provided unlimited ad-supported streaming via its desktop client for six months, until it then imposed a cap on your streaming. Now, that cap is being scrapped.
As of now, Spotify has removed the caps from its free web service. You’ll still have to put up with ads, but you’ll now be able to listen to that favourite album on repeat ad infinitum. The change applies around the world, so you’ll be able to take advantage wherever you are. The new feature is no doubt a result of a healthy $US250 million funding injection that Spotify managed to raise last fall — and will daunt its streaming competitors too. [Spotify via TechCrunch]
