Spotify has gotten exclusive rights to stream music by British rock heavyweights Led Zeppelin.
The deal, announced Wednesday at a press event in New York City, signals growing acceptance of a medium that has been widely derided as unfair to artists by both musicians and what's left of the music industry.
Spotify also announced more services for its freemium mobile users.
The company will now give tablet users the same freemium service they were previously only allowed on desktop, Spotify's CEO Daniel Ek said at the event. Ek also announced that Android and iOS smartphone users would also have access to a new kind of Shuffle service.
"We don't want to make another radio type service, we want to make something really great," Ek said.
