streaming service Spotify is moving into Pandora-style Internet radio with a revamped iOS app for iPhone and iPad that includes a mobile radio service for paid and free users.
Spotify's mobile products were originally available only subscribers who paid for its premium service, which left users of the free service stuck with listening to Spotify only on their desktops.
But now Spotify will offer its radio streaming service to all users. Free Spotify users will have to listen to ad-supported radio, while paid users will get an ad-free experience. The new feature is an iOS-only affair for now; a Spotify spokesperson said the company doesn't have immediate plans to extend the radio service to other mobile platforms such as Android or Windows Phone.
