Spotify released an update on March 14 that allows the user to choose where to store tunes by going to Settings, allowing for a more customizable playlist. Though having a playlist play your favorite tunes in a specific order is always great, enabling Shuffle Mode is always fun, as well.

Though the app is now free, upgrading to Spotify Premium gives you even bigger features. With the upgrade, you’ll be able to download music for offline listening so that no internet connection is required to listen to your music. Sound quality is also improved with Spotify Premium, and there are no ads that will pop up while you’re listening to music.

Junior Monika Rostekkuwazaki has Spotify Premium and enjoys the perks of listening to any song the app has available.

“[Spotify] has a lot of music on there, and I can download the songs and listen to them at any time,” said Rostekkuwazaki. “I listen to mostly anything, besides country, on there.”

Other top apps on Google Play include Color Switch, Stack, Clash Royale, and Piano Tiles 2.

Spotify can be downloaded for free through the Google Play Store and iTunes on Androids, iPhones, tablets, and PCs.
