Spotify Adds One Click Download Feature To Online Music Service

In a move aimed at easing the concerns of many in the music industry and paving its way into the US market, leading online music service provider Spotify has started offering a single click download feature for buying music tracks on its platform.

Spotify has tied up with 7digital to offer tracks for download and the option for buying music will allow it users to purchase quality tracks that come at 320Kbps MP3.

An interesting aspect of the download feature is the fact that once a user purchases a track, it gets into their online Spotify collection besides downloading onto their local computers.

This gives a user the flexibility to access their music collection from any system connected to the internet or re-download the purchased tracks in case they have been accidentally been removed.

With Spotify adding a purchase option on its platform, many analysts believe that it will serve as a viable revenue model for the music service which primarily runs on an advert supported model.

Moreover the buy option also allows the company to make itself more in tune with regulations in many countries including US, where it may be planning to roll out services in near future.
