Are you on Spotify? Do you want to know what Spotify is? Do you think we can use Spotify to help promote Kris? If you answered 'Yes' to any of those questions, then this is the Question of the Week for you!
That's right - Spotify is like your own on-demand jukebox. Find any music you want, whenever you want it. Make your own playlists, share them with other listeners, and check out what they're listening to!
How Do I Get Started?
To start, you either need to get an invitation for the free service or sign up for the paid service. Check out one of the links below to request an invitation:
Once you receive your invitation email, go to the Spotify website to enter your invitation code, set up your account, and download the Spotify program to your computer.
Once you're up and running, add find your friends by searching in the Spotify search field. Just enter spotify:user:username to find them!
Ok, I'm Up And Running. Now What?
Share your user name here! Check out some new music and make some playlists. Got a question? Post it here and maybe your fellow Little Pawns can help.
Don't Forget to Scrobble!
Connect your Spotify and Last.fm accounts right within the Spotify application. Go to Edit>Preferences and select the checkbox to scrobble to last.fm. Enter your last.fm username and password, and you're good to go! If you don't have a Last.fm account, check out our series of posts on the topic. Scrobbling your plays to last.fm can help artists like Kris get some notice from the service and new listeners!
