The streaming service has shared it’s entire catalog of music with a popular DJ App that’s free to download this week.
The Swedish music streaming service Spotify has just added its catalog which features over 20 million songs to djay 2, one of the most popular DJ apps for Apple’s iOS system.
The interface is responsive and user friendly, providing all the services of a regular digital DJ set-up with two turntables, a fully functional mixer and multiple effects. The app can toggle between Spotify and iTunes libraries and also allows users to share their set lists as Spotify playlists online. It’s available as a free update to all existing users but they will need a Spotify Premium subscription to access the music catalog. All djay 2 users can get a free seven-day trial of Spotify premium, and the app is free to download from the App Store until tomorrow.
