Using the desktop app, users can access a new feature called Line-In by clicking on the three dots next to songs, albums, or artists, and selecting "suggest an edit".

Apple Inc.'s Apple Music is adding subscriber accounts in the U.S.at a higher rate than Spotify, and is on track to pass the No. 1 streaming service this summer, according to people in the record business familiar with figures reported by the two services. The new feature allows fans to suggest different information pertaining to the song including an artists alias, explicitness and more. In Israel, Spotify faces competition from global streaming services such as Apple Music, Deezer, and Tidal, as well as local services offered by Israel-based cellular carriers.

Spotify first began testing Line-In with a subset of its audience last fall. "Over the past few months, we've confirmed our beliefs that listeners care deeply about the content on Spotify-they want the data to be useful and accurate", the spokesperson said. That's why the company added the ability to use tags as descriptors as well.

Google Duo gets video messaging feature
That being said the "Request Money" option seems to be absent as of now, but the same was observed earlier in an apk teardown. The rollout of this feature has begun from today, with all devices holding the app set to receive this capability soon.

Once users have accessed the Line-In web interface, they can make suggestions about the song's genre, mood, and other attributes.

There's no doubt that when it comes to streaming services, Spotify's leading the pack. And if you completely mess up on your hip-hop test, you might have a harder time making your future contributions about the genre count. Based on the pricing of company stock traded on private markets, the company, launched in 2008 and headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, is valued at $23.4 billion.
