Many people like Spotify and use it on a day to day basis to stream and listen to music. But their experiences can get better and better if they know about these awesome tips.

Link your Facebook

If you like to tell your friends that you’re listening to, you should know that by linking your Facebook account to Spotify you can share your playlists with your friends and also see what they are listening to.

Import your iTunes playlist

For all those who use iTunes I’m pretty sure that you have your own playlists customized according to different moods. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could just import them to Spotify without creating them all over again? Well, you actually can do that.

Just follow these steps

Open iTunes –> select Preferences –> Advanced –> Tick the box marked Share iTunes Library XML with other applications. Then Go to Spotify –> click File –> Import Playlists –> iTunes.

Click on your account name in the top right hand corner à select Private Session from the drop-down menu.

Now, you are all by yourself in your own little musical world.

A new Family plan was launched sometime back and you get six premium accounts, with all the normal features included, as long as all the members live in the same house. Checkout this link for more information.

    Is it available in SL?. I use Deezer instead. It includes more songs, family plan, link with FB and above all, high resolution CD quality music (which is not available with spotify yet). Only better thing spotify offers is the layout.

    • Not officially available but can be used using a VPN. Deezer is pretty good as well. I personally use Apple Music due to the large collection of songs, even some Sinhala songs 🙂
