Spotify Is Moving Its Infrastructure To Google's Cloud Services

Spotify is moving, sort of. Until now, the company has maintained its own data servers, leasing space near listeners so that it can stream music as quickly as desired. Now the company is saying goodbye to that approach and saying hello to the Google Cloud Platform.

Spotify views this as an opportunity to cut costs and save effort. Google's data platform lets the music streaming company focus on what it likes doing and leaving the boring system administration to someone else's engineers.

Music With Audio Feedback: You Can Now Listen To Spotify On Amazon Echo

Amazon Echo (her friends call here Alexa) has been steadily improving since it launched a little over a year ago. Starting today, this little electronic monolith has a new trick up its sleeve: it can now play music directly from Spotify.

Playing music on Echo isn't exactly new: owners can already stream from services like Amazon Music, Prime Music, iHeartRadio, Pandora, and TuneIn. On top of that, Echo has always been able to play audio from any Bluetooth-enabled device. However, official Spotify support gives users a lot more control over their listening experience than having to manually manage everything (a common first-world problem).

Spotify Now Videos And Podcasts Leave Beta, Live In Android App Starting Today

Spotify subscribers are in for a treat today as the company's awaited video and podcast service has gone live in the Android app. Spotify Now, the company's start screen "hub" sort of thing, now features video content in addition to the mood stations and other stuff it's had since it launched last year. Spotify's beta app has had video and podcast content for quite a while now through a long-standing A/B test (over six months), but today marks the wide rollout of the feature to non-beta users.

Musixmatch Adds Spotify Connect, Streams All Your Playlists With Lyrics On Top

Musixmatch was known for the longest time as a lyrics application that found the words to a song you're listening to and displayed them in rhythm with the music. But Musixmatch has grown beyond that and over the past couple of years has become one of the most interesting music players on Android with local music playback, Chromecast support, and a nice Material Design interface. It is moving one step further now with the addition of Spotify.

If you have a premium Spotify account, you'll be able to use Connect to get all of your music inside Musixmatch. This includes access to all of your playlists and tracks just like you'd find them inside Spotify's app.

[Available All Around The World] You Can Now Redeem 3 Months Of Spotify Premium On All Chromecasts

It's Black Friday, and deals are popping up everywhere like crazy. The Nexus 9 saw its price slashed by a whopping $200 and the brand-new Nexus 5X is being sold at just $299 on the Google Store and B&H. But while those deals are definitely great and all, nothing beats free.

If you own a Chromecast, free is exactly what you can get. Right now, you can redeem 90 days of Spotify Premium for precisely zero dollars and zero cents. We're not entirely sure in which countries this offer applies, since Google only mentions the US, Puerto Rico, and Malaysia in their support page, but I can definitely confirm that it also works in Portugal, so there's a very good chance you'll be able to redeem it in many of the almost 60 countries where Spotify is available.
