Spotify To Acquire SoundCloud?

Spotify To Acquire SoundCloud?

Reportedly, Spotify is conducting advanced talks with SoundCloud about an acquisition or merger. While Spotify is a strictly “pay as you go” service, SoundCloud is primarily free. The latter does have a premium service, SoundCloud Go, but it is not highly adopted. The move could make sense if Spotify was looking to add more free users. An alternative take suggests SoundCloud will no longer be free after the acquisition. Hopefully the former is true.
