Using the desktop app, users can access a new feature called Line-In by clicking on the three dots next to songs, albums, or artists, and selecting "suggest an edit". In Israel, Spotify faces competition from worldwide streaming services such as Apple Music, Deezer, and Tidal, as well as local services offered by Israel-based cellular carriers.

Some of the data categories listeners are invited to make suggestions for include: explicitness, genre, aliases, languages, mood, tags, artist roles, and external URLs.

"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 explained to Variety. Last we heard, Apple just last month noted that Apple Music had 36 million subscribers, which is to say the company's streaming service saw a 5% bump in users in just about four weeks time. Suggestions will be vetted, and users' metadata recommendations will be ranked based on the quality of their past submissions.

Still, given the Raiders' subpar cornerbacks group, Smith was probably the best one among them the second half of the season. Smith's two interceptions against the Dallas Cowboys on December 17 led Oakland, which only had five picks on the year.

ITWeb is attending the official launch on Tuesday and will provide more details as they become available.

Spotify is the first music service of its size to launch a tool like Line In - but the move is consistent with the emphasis the company has put on data in the past.

Apple's Apple Music streaming service, which has been No. 2 in US subscribers behind Spotify AB, is quickly gaining ground against its rival and may overtake it this summer. Families with up to 6 users can subscribe for $14.99 per month.
