Spotify to launch in South Africa this month

Spotify, music streaming service, will launch in South Africa this month. “Spotify has some news to share. Please join us on Tuesday, 13th March to catch all the details,” an official invitation said.

Spotify is the gold standard for streaming, which has become the dominant form of consuming music. “Spotify is the world’s largest global music streaming subscription service with a community of over 159-million users, including over 71-million Spotify Premium subscribers, across 61 markets,” the email invite reads.

South Africans have been able to stream the service by being a premium customer in other markets, typically the United States.
