Tired of being limited in your skips on Pandora? Just days after announcing their new added Apps, Spotify has revamped their Radio feature taking a rifle aim at their competitors. With unlimited skips, Spotify trumps Pandora, who limits track skips on every type of account. Spotify Radio is available to free users and subscribers and will include: (via Hypebot)

  • “Unlimited Stations – Choose a track, artist or genre and Spotify instantly creates a station of similar music. There is no limit to the number of stations users can create.
  • Unlimited Skips – This feature has not been available to Pandora free users.
  • All-new intelligent recommendation engine – Spotify offered no details regarding the technology powering their new recommendation engine.  Is it The Echo Nest? Proprietary?
  • Unlimited access to 15 million tracks.
  • Available to all – Spotify Radio will be available to both free users and subscribers. “
Spotify has 10 million active users and 2.5 million paying subscribers over 12 countries.
