The rumor that the launch was imminent has been circulating for some time, but since this week it is official: streaming service Spotify is available in India.

According to Spotify CEO Daniel Ek, Spotify is tailor-made in India to deliver the best user experience. This includes, for example, displaying recommendations in multiple local languages, such as Hindi, Punjabi and Tamil. In addition, free Spotify users will also be able to play songs 'on demand' for the first time, instead of just in shuffle. Special playlists are also being launched, targeting the Indian market.

The subscription prices are also geared to the local market. They are therefore a lot lower than in Western countries. Moreover, it is possible to buy a day pass or a week pass, an option that is not available anywhere else.
