PanARMENIAN.Net - An app for Twitter #Music has launched on Spotify, Digital Spy said.
All desktop Spotify users can now find and listen to full-length tracks direct from the Twitter #Music app.
The app is largely identical to the web service but gives users quicker access to music and its five charts.
Twitter's 'Superstars', 'Popular', 'Emerging', 'Unearthed' and 'Hunted' charts - which launched in May - can also be turned into Spotify playlists.
However, the music selection focuses on live Twitter data instead of the musicians users follow, meaning the Spotify service is less personalised.
The social network's other #Music partner Rdio has also received a special page for the service, providing 15 different #Music-generated playlists.
According to MusicWeek, in late August, the Electrospective Spotify app has launched, containing music from over 550 albums, over a time-span of 50 years, from the catalogues of Virgin, Parlophone, EMI and Mute. The Spotify app is the latest offering from the Electrospective project which was launched last summer to bring together electronic music from the labels. The project is now being curated by the team at Universal Music Catalogue, with more records due to join the line up in the future.
The app aims to fill what it sees as a gap in Spotify’s app store for electronic music fans, with genres including synth pop, ambient, dance and experimental.
The app’s home page offers event driven playlists, such as the set list from The Human League’s recent Kew Gardens shows, artist curated playlists from the likes of Mute records founder Daniel Miller and artist focused playlists such as the Daft Punk collaborators playlist. Also available is the function to create genre or period playlists.
