STRAY KIDS - 5 STAR ON SPOTIFY
Spotify is a popular digital music streaming platform that allows users to access a vast library of songs, podcasts, and other audio content. With Spotify, users can listen to music on demand by streaming songs directly to their devices, such as smartphones, tablets, or computers. Spotify offers both free and premium subscription options. The free version is ad-supported and provides limited features, such as shuffle play and occasional audio ads. The premium subscription removes ads, allows unlimited skips, and provides additional features like offline playback, high-quality audio streaming, and the ability to select and play specific songs on-demand.
Use any Valid Email Address to create a Spotify Account, then activate a 30 day free trial. You do have to enter a payment method but it does not charge you till your trial is over. We suggest using the FAMILY PLAN FREE TRIAL it allows you to add 5 additional Spotify Accounts to your 'family' allowing all of them to have access to Spotify Premium Subscriptions.
If you have a PAYPAL Account you can get a 3 month free trial or you can also use your Outlook or Hotmail accounts to see if you qualify for a 3 month free trial thru Microsoft.

HOW DOES SPOTIFY COUNT STREAMS?
- Song stream: Counted when someone listens for 30 seconds or more
- Release stream count: All song streams from the release added up. If a song appears on multiple releases, it counts towards the stream count on every release.
- Downloaded Music & Streaming Offline: Spotify counts streams when the listener come back online & logs into Spotify, which must happen at least once every 30 days for the streams to be added.
Once you create an account & log in the first thing you should do is check your settings and anytime you log into your account on a new device or after an app update make sure they are still set accordingly.

THREAD OF 5 STAR / S CLASS
HOW TO STREAM?
- Volume at least at 50%,use headphones or mute device do NOT mute Spotify, but adjusting the volume sometimes in Spotify is considering interacting with the app & seen as human behavior.
- Make sure to turn off AUTOPLAY (Home > Settings > Playback > Off).
- DO NOT LOOP OR REPEAT the songs.
- DO NOT shuffle the playlist, it could play the songs back to back and be filtered out.
- When sleeping or passive streaming, use queue playlists, meaning queue 3-4 shorter playlists instead of one 8-9 hour playlist.
- You can use 3-5 Spotify accounts at the same time, but don’t use the same account on multiple devices. Use different browsers, use cellular data instead of Wi-Fi, etc BUT NEVER USE A VPN.
- When the playlist is over, DO NOT LOOP OR REPLAY THE SAME PLAYLIST. Use a new one, try to only use each playlist once a day. Grab a variety from Fanbases and STAYs. CHECK THAT ANY PLAYLISTS YOU USE FOLLOW ALL GUIDELINES BEFORE STREAMING!
