Spotify testing Duo

Love it or Hate it Spotify is trying their hardest to reach as many people as possible and making a much money as possible.

In a new effort to increase revenue the company is now testing Spotify Duo. Duo targets couples who share a single premium account for £9.99 a month because a family plan is too expensive and of little use.

The company is also adding a new playlist called Duo Mix aimed at two members of the Premium Duo account. It features songs that you have both liked. You can choose between a chill mix and an upbeat mix. You can also filter out explicit content.

Spotify would introduce a new price point at €12.49 per month — it would likely cost £12.49 in the U.K and $12.49 in the U.S. at the moment duo is only available in Ireland and the only requirement is that you need to live at the same address.

Pandora adds back Apple Watch support with offline playback

When pandora removed support for the Apple Watch many users were outraged, finally the company has seen since and added back support plus they added offline playback for its paying members.

Pandora users must update to Version 1812.2 and be running watchOS 5, and be either a Pandora Plus or Pandora Premium user. The decision to drop the first generation watch makes sense as Apple made it easier for third party users in watchOS 5 to make apps with offline playback.

Pandora says “You asked, and we listened! By popular demand, we bring you a brand new, built-from-theground-up app that’s seamlessly integrated into the Apple Watch experience.”

Users can now:

– Access remote playback controls.

– Give your favorites a Thumbs Up directly from the Now Playing screen.

– Listen without an internet connection! Pandora Plus & Premium subscribers get access to offline content – no phone required.

– To get started, make sure you have watchOS 5 installed before updating Pandora.

Must have Music Apps

It’s been awhile since we posted about music apps to download from the AppStore and today we have two for you, the first one is called Zango and allows you to download songs to play offline.

The next app is called Music Mate and again this allows you to download music for offline playback.

Both of these apps also have the option to play radio stations as well which is a nice touch. Make sure you download these apps before they are pulled from the iOS AppStore.
