The mooted Spotify application for mobile phones could incorporate Lastfm’s music recommendation function, it has been revealed.
Daniel Ek, founder of Spotify, outlined his plans for the mobile phone version of the on-demand music service at the Great Escape music conference in Brighton.
He told delegates: “We definitely want to have music recommendation.
"I'd love to work with someone like Last.fm and I think in a couple of days you'll see some sort of announcement. Something will happen.”
Mr Ek also reiterated that the mobile version of Spotify would be a paid-for service.
This differs from the online incarnation of the site, which offers free unlimited use in exchange for intermittent advertisements.
Alternatively, users can pay a £9.99 subscription for an ad-free service.
The Spotify app is expected to arrive across a range of mobile phones, but is likely to appear initially on the iPhone.
