Spotify drops Facebook log-in requirement in the US

Rhian Jones

Spotify is dropping the requirement that all new US users must register with a Facebook account.

The registration page now holds an email registration option further down on the page, but confusingly, Spotify still tells users that a Facebook login is required at the top of the form.  

The development follows rumours of heated internal debates over the forced Facebook login, introduced in late September of 2011.  

Spotify relaxed the Facebook requirement in Germany back in June, the status of the change in other countries outside of the US is uncertain.
