Spotify Enlists Its Users to Add Music Metadata

Spotify has announced the launch a new tool that allows its fans and music lovers to suggest additions to the information it has about music on Spotify.

"Listeners describe music in different ways, and understanding that information will help improve, extend, and confirm the information that describes music on Spotify", a Spotify spokesperson explained to Variety. Cue said Apple has 8 million subscribers now in the free trial period, the first time Apple has disclosed the number of trial users.

All desktop Spotify users can access the Line-In tool by clicking the three dots next to an Artist, Album, or Song and selecting Suggest an Edit.

The company said this is its first venture in Africa.

The platform is now accepting music metadata suggestions from it users.

"We've also seen that listeners are eager to describe the music they're passionate about in ways beyond traditional concepts like genre and mood". The goal is to leverage the wisdom of the crowds in correcting and expanding Spotify's data over time, which could give it a competitive advantage against rival services like Apple or Pandora, for example.

Beyond contributing data by searching for artists from the Line-In homepage, users also can opt to take quizzes to share their knowledge or track mood or explicitness, while contributing data. New edits will also be checked before becoming official. And if you completely mess up on your hip-hop test, you might have a harder time making your future contributions about the genre count. Back in 2014, Spotify acquired The Echo Nest, a music metadata provider, for a reported $100 million.

Apple, Spotify, Google and other services charge US$9.99 ($13.10) a month for music.
