Spotify in the U.S. now open for all Thanks to Facebook, you no longer need an invitation to join the popular streaming music service.
CEO Daniel Ek announced that users can now log in with their Facebook accounts and have access to the free streaming music service.

As with other free users, the first 6 months are unlimited but are then reduced to 10 hours of music per month afterwards, unless of course, you upgrade to the premium subscriptions.

The first premium sub is $5 per month for unlimited ad-free music while the second, more popular option costs $10 and gives access to higher quality tracks, mobile access (tablet, phone, etc) and offline listening capabilities.

Facebook, at their F8 developer conference yesterday announced deals with multiple music-streaming service, bringing music "discovery" to the social network.

nah, i bet this will skyrocket. hell 10 bucks a moth is cheap. for anywhere, mobile acess etc. i of course would never pay any more than 10 a month tho. so if they decide to down the road, pull a netflix, price hike, i would leave them faster than a fart in the wind.
