Nice one, Spotify

I was using Spotify this morning, as I regularly do, and suddenly noticed this information in a corner. Ever since they switched to limiting listening time, I’ve wondered how I’ll know how many minutes and hours I’m using. I sort of assumed that at the end of the limit, I’d be rudely presented with a ‘your time is up’ notification. I’m really glad they’re making it transparent right from the beginning – being friendly rather than dictatorial. Good job, Spotify.

And good luck with your impending US launch next month (even if I first heard Daniel Ek mention the launch over 2 years ago at SXSW!).
