Spotify extends free trial in the US, more

Streaming music service Spotify has removed the five-track playback limit for its free service in five European countries. At the same time, the unlimited free trial will be extended in the US, due to a claimed very high response. Exactly how many more plays will be available in Sweden, Finland, Norway, the Netherlands, and Spain hasn't been revealed, however. Nor is it known by how much the six-month trial in the US will be extended.

The five-track limit remains in place in the UK and France. European users also had an unlimited, six-month trial in April of last year, after the six-month trial period ended. The 10-hour monthly limit remains in place.

Spotify has been working with labels on removing the limit and it believes that an unrivaled free music tier is key to becoming the best music service. It also hopes to make its service universal in all of its markets by making the agreements with labels the same. [via TheNextWeb]
