    Good news for Spotify users in the U.S. They can play for free on iPhone and iPad. The latest update to Spotify's iOS app includes the new radio feature, giving free users in the U.S. access to an unlimited amount of music on the move.

    The new radio feature for iOS is seamlessly integrated into the Spotify service, creating an unmatched user experience of listening, discovering, saving and sharing music, from a catalog of more than 16 million songs.

    • Create limitless streaming radio stations from single songs, playlists, albums or artists
    • Create an unlimited number of stations and listen as long as they like
    • Save tracks to Spotify playlists - any song that users “like” will be saved, so they can find the songs later
    • Personalize stations in real time by “liking” tracks to hear similar music
    • Browse friends' playlists and create radio stations based on their tastes
    • Hear great new songs from Spotify's state-of-the-art recommendation engine, based on what millions of real people are listening to

Free users in the U.S. will hear advertisements from the following launch partners: Chevrolet, Durex, Heineken, Red Stag by Jim Beam, Lipton Iced Tea, Macy's, McDonalds, Progressive, Red Bull, Taco Bell, Verizon Wireless, and Warner Bros – all of which are current Spotify advertisers.

    The app is available in the app store on iTunes.
