I'm building my own device based on Android. I want it to play music without having to connect to Spotify or SoundCloud. Any one know of a service provider I can use for this (at minimum cost)?

I'd like to stream it from something like Spotify - but I don't want my users to have to create their own user. I'd like to create a general user and under that have profiles for my device owners.

    Let's turn the question : where would you like to fetch your music ? Internal memory? DLNA server in your house? – Goufalite Mar 12 '17 at 10:14

    Can you clarify the question please? Do you want to stream from something like spotify, or do you want local music? Generally, music will be locked down to ensure you pay for it properly. Alternatively, you might be looking for some CC licensed music. – Sean Houlihane Mar 12 '17 at 10:55

    @dafnap I've edited the extra details into the question so that it's easier for other users to find. You can edit when you have extra details—this will bump your post to the top of the list and get more attention. Good luck with finding your answer. – Aurora0001 Mar 13 '17 at 17:25

    @dafnap You will need to edit your question to capture the details which the comments have asked about - then maybe it can be re-opened. It will probably help if you also explain why it is better for your users to follow this path rather than authenticate your device on an existing account. Unfortunately, this probably means discussing the details of your product. – Sean Houlihane Mar 14 '17 at 13:00

a service provider [...] (at minimum cost)? [...] something like Spotify

Well actually there are plenty of providers "like" Spotify (depending on the definition of "likeness") and predating Spotify by decades: Internet radio stations, e.g.: http://www.radiocaroline.co.uk

SHOUTcast alone has 20k+ stations. Find an extended list of providers on Wikipedia (too many to rehash it here).


I think the question needs to be narrowed down to get better answers.
