Spotify is coming to the Indian market

Yes, it is hard to believe that the streaming giant Spotify hasn't set it business on the sweet pie of the Indian market yet. But now Spotify is coming for the Indian market and targeting millions of subscribers in this sub-continent. Eventhough this has been in the planning phase for many years now, finally we have the app on Indian Play Store right now. You could actually go on there and sign-up for an account or buy a Premium subscription, however, the app is not working very smoothly yet.

From the official page of Indian Spotify, we know that the service is not available for the entire country yet. Despite that you could head to the app page on Play Store you could sign-up for a 30-days trial from now. Its premium subscription will be set at the price of 119 INR ($1.67) per month. And if you are a student you could get a discount of 50%.

The single time package.

The fight with Warner Music

After all that, it doesn't seem that this launch of Spotify in India will be all smooth sailing. Mainly because the streaming service is still fighting with Warner Music over the right of licensing in India. So, for now, users of Spotify in India couldn't listen to the music of Warner Music's artists like Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, and Cardi B.

The only thing we could do is hope that the two will find a shared ground soon enough  ( even if they don't love each other) so that there won't be any restrictions for the users anymore in the near future.
