Facebook Account Now Required for Free Spotify Accounts (US)

Spotify launched in the US a few months ago. More recently the company opened up the free service as a free for all. A change has now been made which now requires new signups to go through Facebook to get an account. What this essentially means is that anyone now wanting a free Spotify account also requires a Facebook account so that the account can be opened up.

When questioned about the new policy on the Spotify forums by users that didn’t have or want Facebook account. Spotify’s answer was straight to the point, no Facebook account no signup. From now on all new accounts require Facebook, if you don’t have a Facebook account you need to create one or do without both services.
