Web Song Samples

When sending a link to a friend, it would be interesting if, in case they don't have spotify (in that case it would open the application directly in most of the cases) it could allow the user play a small sample of the song (like 10-15 seconds, whatever is legally possible for you), and then you can show a message saying "Want to listen more? Get spotify."
People would get the message better than if they just get a link to downloading an executable.

This is because many times I wish more of my friends had spotify to share music with them, but they don't see the benefits of the tool, or they just don't know the tool at all. Others just find it expensive, but nothing I can do about that... Smiley Sad

Hey discobanco, thanks for the idea. I can certainly see it being a good idea and I'm sure we'd get more people signing up.


I guess we'd need to get permission from all the rightsholders first though - which would probably mean renegotiating a lot of the existing deals to include allowing for samples. And at Spotify we're more focused on letting all users listening to whole songs rather than little snippets.

 

But there's definitely a good thought here. Hopefully we can make something of it at least.

Thank you so much for the quick reply!!! Smiley Happy
