Over the past decade we have seen music buffering services in the industry rise tremendously. The idea of music buffering services is to bring you millions of songs, of all makes, for whatever situation you land yourself in. Buffering services have forced big players like iTunes to follow in their path or unfortunately get left behind. Buffering websites claim they are contributing positively to the industry with the underlying fact that music seems to be growing again. But like anything else on earth where there is ups, unfortunately, there needs to be downs and for buffering websites it’s certainly been the case, especially during the last couple of year.
Music buffering sites in general all operate in similar ways. The majority allows consumers to use their service for free, with the downside of having to be handled by advertising in between songs, but also have a paid version of the service, where you pay a collection price per month or year, and lure little to no being interrupted. Buffering services, in short, have banks of music from a wide range of artists and makes where customers are usually allowed to customize their own profiles with any music they choose, create playlists of their own and use the services radio setting where they curate songs for you. Before music buffering services started growing, paying a collection price for a single song on iTunes and uploading it on your device have also been the most traveled path. In our age it is clear that buffering services are taking on, from movies to music, buffering seems to be the most efficient way of operating. There are many buffering services to choose from in our point in time, such as, Pandora, Google Music, Amazon Prime Music, Apple Music, etc. But I want to focus on you that has impacted the the most, or so it seems, Spotify.

Spotify, founded by Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon, launched in 08 praying of changing the way we listen to music forever. Along with most buffering services, Spotify allows you to search any artist, track, album, type or playlist to find exactly what you’re looking for. Spotify also allows you to “follow” your friends and artists in the industry to see what they’re listening to. Spotify joined up with Facebook where users with Spotify accounts could choose an option where the recent songs they listened to would pop up on their Facebook profile. In my opinion this became Spotify’s best decision as far as growing their service. Today, Spotify has 1, 500 employees, 75+ millions users, music available in 50+ dialects and is available in a software form on virtually every platform.
