Spotify for Android brings the popular music streaming service to mobile devices. Millions of people across all demographics use the app regularly. For Android users, the app brings a fantastic user interface and tons of features. A given user can listen to his or her favorite music no matter the time or location. Spotify Premium, a subscription service, ensures the music never needs to stop.

Currently, over a million songs are available to Premium subscribers. That library continues to grow with new artists and new songs each day. Users can listen to entire collections of an artist's discography. Otherwise, they can build customized playlists or listen to curated playlists. A "Discover Weekly" feature provides each user with personalized music recommendations, too.

The Spotify app includes a large variety of features for users to customize their experience. Music can be downloaded to an Android device for playback at all times. Likewise, an offline mode allows users to take songs on the go without a connection. Files are downloadable at various quality settings to accommodate storage restrictions and listening preferences.

Spotify is perhaps Android's best music streaming service, and that holds true for other operating systems as well. While the Premium subscription costs $9.99 per month, the free version of the app provides a positive experience. In the end, many users choose to pay the subscription fee in order to enjoy all of the powerful features in the Spotify app. Regular users will discover few flaws with the app itself, and they'll love all of the music they can listen to through the service.
