A man listens to an iPod MP3 player through earphones August 17, 2005 in Sydney, Australia. Research conducted by the National Acoustic Laboratories, to be released by the Australian Federal Government today, has found that up to a 25% of people who use iPods or other portable music devices will suffer from hearing problems as a result of listening to their players at "excessive and damaging" levels.

First, Spotify decided to collaborate with Storytel, which is expected to extend the popular audio streaming app into the audiobooks market. 

Moreover, the music streaming service also received new search filters for its iOS and Android versions. Specifically, the new mobile version of Spotify will offer advanced music and podcast search filters, which work when the user types something in the app's search bar. These new search tools include various categories such as Songs, Playlists, Albums, Podcasts & Shows, Profiles, Episodes, and Top Results. 

To give you more idea, here's how the new search filters of Spotify work.
