Spotify Radio Question

Hi all, I'm new here and I was wondering if the Radio option will take time off the 10hrs/month limit on a Free account.

Including the custom and the genre radios.

 

Thanks

Hey! Welcome to the community 🙂 

 

Yes it does, anything being streamed from Spotify is counted in that limit.

It's really easy to create your own playlist radio station which reflects your music preference far more accurately. Just pop a bunch of your favourite tracks into a playlist then right click on it and start playlist radio.

I remember Spotify Radio Station "Hard Rock"  why was it removed?  I don't pay for Slacker but listen there more than Spotify I am paying for.  Slacker has a radio station genere "Hard Rock"  Spotify had several Rock Station options, but none of them work well for me.  Like I said Spotify used to have a "Hard Rock" Station, it was good for me.  Does Spotify plan on adding that station back to the list?  Why not?

Thanks for the quick reply.  I'll try what you've suggested.  This I've never tried, so it will be interesting.  However as nice as Spotify is all around, I enjoy the unexpected playlist of using the genre radio stations (except for the massive repeats LoL!)  For me to pick favorites of my own might defeat my goal, I have at least a TeraByte of my own music here I can listen to at will.    I'll make myself a list of unknown favorites while listening to the Slacker hard Rock station, then dial up the material in Spotify and try your method. The just of it is that I can not tolerate broadcast radio stations.

Thanks again.

No, you can only listen to Spotify content inside a Spotify application.

Something is wrong with the radio stations.I tried to play an artists radio staion today and i thumbed down the song they wanted me to have added to it but they kept giving me the same song over and over and over again as much as 15 times in a row the same song thumbed down.What's going on with the new radio station format?

That is weird @camaro-cowboy - did it eventually move onto another track or did you have to manually change it?

It eventually started working.Sorry i was so late replying.I didn't see anything in my email last year.I guess it was just a glitch that day.If you try to rush through the thumbs down or just skip too quickly,it will mess up in radio.

Can anyone tell me what is going on with the radio stations?When playing one of my stations,a cover will show up of a different artist and different song than what is actually playing.I am afraid of giving it a thumbs up and adding it even if i like the song because of the incorrect album cover and artist.Also i have noticed that you can at least remove or delete unwanted radio stations and have increased the number of radio stations you can have to 32. Where do those deleted radio stations go to?

I'm thankful for Spotify.  ...still after all my years involved with it.

Sometimes I can't belive how 99% of songs I hear are perfect for me.

...then I realize I'm listening to my "Good Song" playlist, or a radio station based off of my own playlist.
