In Israel, Spotify faces competition from global streaming services such as Apple Music, Deezer, and Tidal, as well as local services offered by Israel-based cellular carriers.

Spotify has found a new way to beef up its knowledge about music: The company has begun to solicit music metadata suggestions from its users, asking them to describe genres of albums or moods of songs. Through submissions, Spotify will review the suggested edits and make sure it matches up to what other users also suggest.

The tool is now only available to desktop users, and is accessible by clicking on the three dots next to Artist, Album or Song, then choosing "Suggest an Edit". There's even an option to select what kind of mood the song is.

"Issues like this are the responsibility of our content partners to correct, so our only recourse is to send the issue up the chain and ask the label or artist to resend the metadata".
