THE IPOD SHUFFLE is dead, but it still has ardent admirers. While Apple discontinued its tiny MP3 player in 2017, refurbished devices endure on eBay, a happy hunting ground for music fans who want to enjoy tunes without a cumbersome phone or the distractions it subjects them to. The twist is that it’s built for the streaming age: Vibe downloads playlists and podcasts exclusively from Spotify to its 8GB hard drive—four times as large as the Shuffle’s—making about 1,000 songs available offline.
Spotify seems to be focused on building stronger relationships with musicians, having added features such as easier music uploads and allowing them to submit tracks to playlist editors for consideration.

Here’s your standard game-changer quote, this time from Senior Product Director Michael Ericsson: “The release of our new eSDK will change the game for Spotify’s Free users who want to enjoy music on their connected speakers.
