Like the brief romance between Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, the new Linkedin-owned Spotify playlists are confusing at best. That seemed to be the consensus across the web after the job-hunter’s platform of choice announced these bops in a tweet earlier this week, promising to keep listeners company during “every moment of your career journey.” There’s the “New Job, Fresh Start” playlist for when you start a new job, there’s “Never Give Up” for when you’re unceremoniously laid off from that new job, and when you’re inevitably back to hunting for another new job, the “Interview Time” playlist has you covered.

The Spotify apps are constantly updated, tweaked and refined, and that means a steady flow of new features for you to try out.

My favourite thing about Spotify has always been music discovery. So when the company started building personalised playlists like Discovery Weekly and Release radar, I was hooked.

The only problem was listening to all the new music takes forever. But an independent project from a couple of Spotify developers offers an amazing hack for exploring millions and millions of songs. They call it Discover Quickly.

Potentially yielding some bitterly-contested ground, Apple is thinking about allowing its users to replace their default essential apps like Safari, Mail, and Apple Music with third-party apps, Bloomberg reports.

Netflix just announced that’s developing a scripted series based on the “Swedish music sensation Spotify.” Based on the book Spotify Untold, the new Netflix show will tell the music streaming company’s origin story in the framework of piracy in the late Aughts. Whether or not this will be an exciting ride, remains unclear.

Chances are you’re already signed up for at least one music streaming service, but if you’re not willing nor able to pay a subscription fee for your listening, what are the options open to you? Several streaming platforms let you listen for free, with a few ads and restrictions, so we’ve rounded up what each of the best ones has to offer.

Streaming services like Netflix, Disney+ and Spotify might be required to issue emergency alerts from the American government if U.S. lawmakers have their way. TV and radio stations operating in the U.S. are required by law to issue emergency warnings, like the infamous fake missile alert for Hawaii issued in early 2018, but lawmakers want to bring those alerts to more platforms, as viewers use more and more internet-based services.

Spotify has announced that you can now smoosh your podcasts and music in the one playlist, or just playlists full of podcasts, if that's your preferred poison.

The handy new feature will enable you to finally have hours-long playlists for your tiring commutes, but you'll have to curate them on your mobile if you want to listen to them on desktop.
