Shenzhen, Guangdong -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/15/2016 -- Spotify, a commercial music streaming service provider, has launched a dedicated Gaming section or a new portal dedicated to video game music. All kinds of video game music can be found in this section, not only original video game soundtracks but also various playlists from community or Spotify itself.

Spotify provides a comprehensive and easily navigable original game music library. The soundtracks is made up of the official scores for a number of games, including the space exploration game No Man's Sky, Fallout 4, etc. There's also classics like Mass Effect, The Last of Us and Mirror's Edge, as well as the background music for mobile hits like Monument Valley and Bastion.

In addition to the original video game soundtracks, Spotify also includes both community playlists and curated collections from Spotify itself. People can find more traditional music here and pick up mood music suitable for playing a game. Playlists range from collections of soundscapes, to pop hits, to so-called Top Gaming Tracks, an eclectic mix which includes Smells Like Teen Spirit, Pompeii and Turn Down for What.

People not having a thing for video games can visit other portals like Mood, Pop, Hip Hop, Country, etc. to enjoy the streaming music on Spotify. Besides, people can browse through the interface by artist, album, genre, playlist, record label, and direct searches. Spotify also enables individuals to create, share, and edit playlists.

It is free to listen music on Spotify. According to Spotify, people can enjoy their favorite albums and artists for free but with occasional ads. To get rid of advertisements, people need to spend $9.99 on a monthly basis for upgrading to Spotify Premium which allows people to play on-demand, listen offline, and enjoy high-quality audio.

Spotify offers a good solution for people to listen music online or even offline, but it does not offer a solution for individuals to download music. A music downloading program is of great help for downloading music. The selection of an appropriate music downloading program could be a challenging task. On one hand, the program needs to be user-friendly therefore even software rookie will find it easy to operate. On the other hand, the program should be able to record both computer audio and online music. It is better if the program can automatically add music tags like artist, album, cover, etc. There are many programs that meet these standard, such as Leawo Music Recorder. The program from Leawo Software also allows users to schedule music recording task, manually edit music tags, and manage recordings.
