Spotify’s artist dashboard exits beta, offering streaming insights, profile management & more

It shows which Spotify features fans are using to discover and play an artist’s songs – something that can help with crafting promotions and partnerships. And it can inform artists about what other bands and musicians their fans like, which helps artists figure out who to collaborate or tour with, for example. And, of course, it will give data on listens – a figure that gets updated in real-time as the artist’s music plays – as well as song data, playlist data, and notifications when fans add a track to their playlists. – Sarah Perez, TechCrunch
