Radio has always been the way people discover music – listeners get turned onto new artists they come to love and then buy their music to tune in whenever they want. Even with the rapid advance of technology, this path is no less true today than it was 30 years ago.
Spotify offers the ultimate version of a record store, giving access to nearly every track ever recorded, anytime, anywhere. But the trick is finding the stuff that’s just right for you. On 8tracks, nearly 1m DJs actively curate playlists, introducing more listeners to both familiar and lesser-known, independent artists. We complement the algorithmic playlisting on Spotify with a curated touch that spans every imaginable style, for any time and place.
It’s with this in mind that we’re pleased to announce our new integration on the 8tracks iOS app, allowing you to automatically save favorited tracks from 8tracks to a brand-new “8tracks Discoveries” playlist on Spotify. The gems you uncover on 8tracks can now be enjoyed with on-demand playback anytime you want.
How it works
1. Download the latest 8tracks iOS app version here (version # 3.3.72) if you don’t have it already.
2. Sign into your 8tracks account in the app, then tap this link or the images below, and follow the steps to connect your Spotify account. Or, you can just tap the ✩ to favorite a new track in the 8tracks iOS app and you’ll be prompted to connect your accounts.
3. Once your accounts are connected, 8tracks will automatically create a new Spotify playlist in the top position titled ‘8tracks Discoveries’ where new tracks you favorite in our iOS app will be saved. That’s it!
There’s more to come on the Spotify front in the months ahead:
- Save your favorites to Spotify on web and Android as well as iOS
- Import your past favorites to
get lost in nostalgiarevisit fond memories with a soundtrack to match
- Potential deeper integration to give DJs and listeners more ways to listen and share the music they love
Meanwhile, we’re working on an upcoming Alexa integration, which plays particularly well with all of the amazing ways our community has tagged playlists over the years; “Alexa, play me happy shower music with Journey and Michael Jackson.”
And our upcoming crowdfunding round on Wefunder will directly support us as we make progress towards new integrations and features. Learn more here about how you can become an investor and get a lifetime upgrade to ad-free 8tracks Plus.
