The Stockholm-based music streaming platform developed by Swedish company Spotify Technology is launching in 13 new markets in the Middle East and North America, bringing its service to 78 countries in total.
The company made an announcement in March when it opened for public listing and opened an office in Mumbai with 300 employees.
The service which became operational in 2008, reportedly has about 83 million paid subscribers.
Spotify is a freemium service; basic features are free with advertisements or limitations, while additional features, such as improved streaming quality and music downloads, are offered via paid subscriptions.
The service is compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux computers, iOS, Windows Phone and Android smartphones and tablets, Amazon FireTV Devices, the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One home consoles.
Music can be browsed through or searched for by filters like artist, album, genre, playlist, or record label. You can create, edit, and share playlists and tracks on social media, and make playlists with other users.
Spotify provides access to more than 40 million songs.
The present Indian scenario is already dominated by key players like Gaana, Saavn, Hungama, Airtel Wynk, Google Play, Apple Music and Amazon.
*Disclosure: Gaana was incubated by Times Internet that owns ETPanache
