Spotify, the streaming platform announced a sweeping expansion of their audio streaming platform services to more than a billion people in 85 new markets (Nepal included) around the world with the support to add 36 new languages to the platform. Spotify’s broadest market expansion to date.

The announcement was shared during a Stream On event featuring Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The new markets mostly cover developing countries in Asia, Africa, The Pacific, and the Caribbean.

Spotify will be available on mobile and on the desktop with its desktop web player.* Spotify will offer Free and Premium plans all across the markets. Still, only in selected markets, Spotify will offer Individual, Family, Duo, and Student Plan options.*

Listeners will have full access to Spotify’s worldwide catalog. Spotify aims to deliver a Spotify experience to meet the unique needs of each market. In the majority of these markets, Spotify will launch with its full podcast catalog.* The company has said to work closely with local artists, creators, media partners, and local right holders to expand and include more offerings in their catalog.

Spotify, The Swedish company, which started its service more than a decade ago, is currently available in 93 countries and has 345 million monthly active users.

Spotify's earlier expansion of its services in India, Russia, and the Middle East has already brought millions of new subscribers.

Despite the enormous popularity, Spotify has long faced criticism over streaming royalties, which many musicians say are insufficient. Spotify had never turned to profit until 2019.

The music Industry of Nepal will have an enormous potential impact. The streaming platform company announcement has already made an impact around the world. And we Nepalese also warmly welcome it. Nepalese artists, music creators, news & radio shows will be most benefited along with the listeners. Nepalese Artists and music creators have had already uploaded their music, tracks, songs, and albums in the Spotify library even before its inception. But had to go through various hassles. But the hassles soon will be gone after the official launch. Nepalese artists will soon be able to release their music and albums without the harsh process and hassles. Nepalese artists will be able to promote their music around the world and run promotional campaigns with exposure to global audiences. Given so as stated by Spotify. If so, artists will be able to generate handsome revenue from it. Nepalese people will be able to discover and listen to music around the world.

Nepal and the Music Industry will hugely benefit from it.

I am really happy that Spotify is coming to Nepal. Along with expansion, they also announced that they are going to add HiFI audio quality known as "Spotify HiFi". The music quality is totally tremendous in HiFi and I am so glad that they are now including this. 

Let's hope that international payment and spotify gets launch at the same time so we can enjoy premium in Nepal!!!

Remember the days when you had to use a VPN to create an account for Spotify. Remember the days when you had to log in after every 14 days with a VPN just to use Spotify (if you used mobile/smartphone). Remember.
