Spotify introduces new Gaming category with playlists and soundtracks from your favorite games

I'm not an avid gamer: puzzles, math games, brain teasers, anything that requires a bit of thinking and doesn't involve plot twists, that's my jam. But I know a lot of people who are taken by games, whether classics or new releases, and I know that many of them are completely fascinated by the music and soundtracks that accompany these games.

That's the category of players that Spotify is catering to with its latest Gaming category addition. Showing up today in Browse on mobile, desktop, and web, Gaming will include plenty of curated playlists like Power GamingRock Gaming, and even Catch 'Em All, as well as guest playlists from other Spotify listeners and avid gamers.

Spotify Release Radar is a personalized playlist with new releases from your favorite artists

One of Spotify's most beloved features are its playlists. You can create some, listen to those made by your friends or shared by strangers or musicians, and the service also curates playlists that are either tailored for you or available for everyone. Now Spotify is introducing one more personalized playlist: Release Radar.

Dropping every Friday, Release Radar will have the latest singles from your favorite artists — those you listen to the most — so you don't have to go looking for new releases from each artist or band individually. You might also find some new discoveries there as well, but the focus is on the music creators you already love.

Spotify beta switches the slide-out navigation drawer to a bottom bar

I don't like this recent trend of using bottom navigation bars. Not because it is reminiscent of iOS apps, but because I have gotten so used to sliding a navigation drawer from the side that reaching the bottom of my phone's screen is just not engrained in my muscle memory. Also, the way it's implemented often uses screen estate that can be better utilized to display more data than to provide switches to other tabs that I may not need or use all the time. But that's just my opinion.

It looks like the bottom navigation panel or bottom bar or whatever you want to call it is here to stay.

T-Mobile Adds Video From Spotify, Tidal, NBC, Univision, Noggin, And More To Binge On Service

Despite some technical objections, T-Mobile's unlimited video streaming option Binge On has proven to be a hit with the company's customers, just as the audio equivalent Music Freedom was before it. With these two programs, T-Mobile customers aren't charged against their data caps for watching or listening on participating services. Today Binge On expands to a few new services, and existing Music Freedom services are adding at least some video content to Binge On.

Aussie Telco Optus To Allow Prepaid Customers To Stream Music For Free

There's some great news if you're an Optus customer. Starting from May 2nd, they will be zero-rating a number of online streaming services for their prepaid customers, allowing them to listen to as much music as they want without racking up a heavy data bill.

Optus is making this available to new and current customers on My Prepaid Ultimate, My Prepaid Daily Plus, and other selected plans. Virtually all the big streaming names are present: Spotify, Google Play Music, Pandora, and the Gold Coast-based Guvera. It's not strictly limited to music either, as iHeartRadio is also included.

Noticeably absent is Apple Music. According to Gizmodo Australia, this is possibly because Cupertino already has a strong partnership with rival network Telstra.

Qus Lets You Stream Music From SoundCloud, YouTube, Spotify, And More In The Same App Plus Listen With Your Friends In Real Time

Do you like to use YouTube to stream music, but wish it had the audio-centric interface and exclusive mixes that SoundCloud does? Maybe you're really a Spotify loyalist, but you're itching for some Taylor Swift in the middle of your playlists. Well, Qus, a relatively newcomer to Android, lets you stream from any combination of these sources, plus Deezer and tracks stored locally.

Not only that, but Qus can help you solve another relatively common problem. We all have, at some point, lent one of our earbuds to a friend to let them hear the track we're listening to. If you were (or are) really enterprising, you have a headphone splitter to make things a little bit easier.

Up until now, SoundCloud has been mostly popular with indie artists and labels, amateur musicians and audio producers, podcasters, and regular users who like recording sound and audio blurbs and sharing them with the world. With SoundCloud Go, the service is announcing that it's made some licensing agreements with Sony, Merlin, Warner, UMG, and other major and indie labels to carry their catalogues.
