Hi,

I wonder if Spotify is the only streaming service currently integrated with the new last.fm. I hope you'll continue adding more of them, including Google Play Music which I use myself.

Hi, thanks for your feedback!

Currently the new persistent player streams from both Spotify and Youtube -- if there are multiple audio sources, you'll see an arrow next to the service's icon on the playback bar which let's you toggle between them.  

We're looking into supporting other services in the future (audio and music video), so let us know which services you use and would most like to see supported.  Speaking personally, I'd love to see Soundcloud and Google play supported.  I'm also wondering if local playback could be supported as well.

Edit for further clarification:

If a YouTube link is available, you will see a drop-down option from the player at the top of the page, and choosing YouTube from the player will attempt to play videos for that session.  If we haven't been able to match a YouTube link to the track, you won't see the arrow.  

We plan on adding more streaming partners and the ability for users to set a preferred source in the future.
