Once users have accessed the Line-In web interface, they can make suggestions about the song's genre, mood, and other attributes. The app is accessible through the desktop app by clicking the three dots next to the album, song or artist and choosing the "suggest an edit" option. The premium account will cost users R59.99 per month, the same price as competitors Apple Music, Deezer, and Google Paly Music.

"Listeners describe music in different ways, and understanding that information will help improve, extend, and confirm the information that describes music on Spotify", a Spotify spokesperson said. "We hope to better understand how Spotify listeners interpret music, so that we can improve experiences for both listeners and artists".

Spotify first began testing Line-In with a subset of its audience last fall. They also check to see on how accurate your past suggestions have been. New edits will also be checked before becoming official.

Cape Town - After much speculation Spotify officially launched in South Africa on Monday. The premium service will be priced at $6 (NIS 19.9) per month and include tracks by local and worldwide artists as well as playlists compiled by local radio stations and celebrities. However, Spotify is the world's biggest streaming music company with more than 70m paying customers and offers a range of music discovery tools favoured by its fans. In the process of recommending, selecting and playing music, it accesses 5 petabytes of this data every single day.
