How to Install Spotify on Ubuntu

Spotify on Ubuntu, yes it is now available for Ubuntu. People at Spotify has made it possible for Spotify users to access it on Ubuntu. Ubuntu is the world’s largest Linux-based OS with a user base of more than a million. Developers at Spotify has therefore released an application dedicated to Ubuntu users.
Spotify for Ubuntu is still under preview but it works rock solid. I have been using Spotify from the past month on the Linux distribution version 12.10 and 13.04, and till now it has never crashed or has given me any problems. It is fast and reliable as it is on other devices. It is even better than its Windows counterpart.

What is Spotify?

Spotify is a great application with more than million users using it daily. It allows you stream unlimited amount of music for free. Though the free version uses ads to earn revenue to keep the project up and running but still you won’t mind it. Millions of music tracks have so much value than 15 second ads on this application.

There are also two paid option. The first one is for $4.99, it is ad free and you can stream all the music you want without any disturbance. The second on the other hand allows you to download any music available on it for off-line listening. Spotify Free allows you to listen to any amount of music you want to, but with ads in between.
It is a great application for music lovers and it contains all the song one can think of. I have been using Spotify for the past one year with a premium account and it works great for me. Gone are the days, when my hard disk had huge amount of music. All the songs that I have right now are on Spotify, a cloud type storage.
