The world’s music lovers may be on the verge of a new musical era thanks to a new streaming service called Spotify.
The service announced Wednesday that it had signed a deal with Google for access to the Google Play Music catalog.
The new deal means that Spotify is the first digital music store to be allowed access to Google Play music, making it the first major music service to do so.
Spotify is also the first music streaming service to offer free downloads to users on any device.
Spotify said the deal with the search giant comes with a 30-day trial period and it will launch in a few months.
Google Play is the company’s biggest music subscription service and its flagship app is available on iPhones, iPads, and Android phones.
The deal with Spotify comes with an important caveat: The music will be available to users who pay the $7.99 per month.
That means Spotify is not selling the music to users for free.
The music is still available for purchase, however, and users can stream it to a connected television or other device for a flat rate of $8.99 a month.
The company says it plans to offer a variety of new features in the future, including streaming a specific song for a limited time or for free with every purchase.
Spotify, which launched in 2015, now has more than 8 billion music users, according to research firm Nielsen SoundScan.
Spotify users will be able to choose from more than 60 million tracks, as well as access to exclusive music from some of the most popular artists in the world, including artists like Rihanna and Katy Perry.
Spotify has a long history of partnering with major music labels, but the deal is the latest in a series of big moves by the company.
Earlier this month, Spotify added more than 5 million artists to its music library, which includes artists like Beyoncé, Pharrell Williams, Beyonce, and Justin Timberlake.
Spotify also announced that it will soon be partnering with HBO.
Spotify launched its streaming service in April of this year, after a series, including the HBO streaming service, was created by the service’s founders.
Spotify’s CEO, Daniel Ek, says the new deal will help the service reach new users, which will help it continue to grow.
Ek says the service is a better option than other streaming services because of the ease with which people can buy and download songs.
He says Spotify has already added a large number of new artists, and he expects the service to add more in the near future.
