Spotify recently announced it has surpassed 100 million paid subscribers. How many of these music listeners know there's a built-in audio equalizer right in the Spotify app? iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners can choose from a selection of presets for different sound content, or customize audio frequencies manually.
Spotify can automatically create a radio station using music you already enjoy. In fact, a new radio station can be created from an album, artist, playlist, song, and more. Once you've opened the content in Spotify, the app can match this to a similar radio station playlist with a few extra steps.
The HomePod is normally connected to the owner's iOS device, which is used to deliver content and configure the smart speaker. But how can another person easily deliver audio to a nearby HomePod that's not paired to their device? Rest assured, sharing that song with your friend is simple, provided you have an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

Music lovers have a new option for streaming tracks on the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Pandora Premium is rolling out to all users, which means it can be added via the Pandora iOS app. The monthly subscription service offers on-demand listening features beyond the lower tier of Pandora Plus and the company's free radio. Beyond creating personalized radio stations that are ad-supported, Pandora Premium represents more competition for rivals Apple Music and Spotify.
