After finally launching back in the US a few months ago Spotify has now made its service available through Facebook allowing you to link your Facebook and Spotify accounts making it even easy to share the music you have listened to with your friends.
However as from today any new Spotify users looking to signup, must now have a Facebook login or a Spotify account signup is not possible.
When questioned about the new policy on the Spotify forums by users that didn’t have or want Facebook account. Spotify’s answer was straight to the point, no Facebook account no signup. From now on all new accounts require Facebook, if you don’t have a Facebook account you need to create one or do without both services.
“Let’s introduce music to your social life! Spotify and Facebook have come together to help you discover more free music than ever before. Just click any of the play buttons on Facebook to get started.”
