Good news to those of you (us!) who live in Switzerland (or Austria or Belgium…)!

Thanks to Spotify – a company that was selected as a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer 2011 – you can now listen to your favourite songs and playlists whenever and from wherever.

ImagesCA6BDFOHRemember the day when you received your first audio cassette? Or maybe your first CD? Well, the cassette players and Walkmans were without doubt trend setters, but have now been replaced by modern technology we could not have even dreamt of in the 80’s and early 90’s.

Spotify’s musical library really makes it simple for every user to listen to their preferred tunes. When signing in, you can choose an option that allows you to listen to music free of charge. Or, you can make the most of your experience by paying a small monthly fee, which saves you from having to deal with online ads and allows you to access your playlists offline.
