Quora Answer : Why is Spotify so popular when it's UX is pretty bad?

Dec 23

It has a huge catalogue of music. It's where most of the music is.

So it's hard to compete with. As that's what users go to first to try to find the artists they like.

As to whether the UX is good or bad. It's pretty good (easy / obvious to use) for the things that Spotify WANT you to do. It's terrible for things that they don't particularly want you to do. (For example, I was trying to copy the web URL for an album from the mobile app. As far as I can tell, there just isn't a way to do it)
