Spotify says "G'day" to Australia. In other words, Spotify is now available for use in Australia. This should make a good number of Australians happy, including our very own Anthony Garreffa. Spotify is launching three versions including Spotify Free, Spotify Unlimited, and Spotify Premium.
"Spotify is a game changer," says Kate Vale, Spotify's Managing Director Australia and New Zealand. "This is a revolutionary new music service that's free, simple, and provides lightning-fast access to one of the world's biggest music libraries. We hope Australian music fans will love Spotify as much as they do across Europe and the US."
Spotify Free is, as the name suggests free, and is ad supported. Spotify Unlimited costs $6.99 a month and gives users ad free access to Spotify a user's PC. Spotify Premium is $11.99 a month and provides the same features as the two prior and also allows users to listen to Spotify on the go on a smartphone, tablet, or other mobile device.
Co-founder and CEO Daniel Ek:
We're unbelievably excited to be here. Australians are massive music fans and we've created a service that we know they'll love...Spotify offers everything you could possibly want from a music service: it's free, it's fast, it's easy to share and with more than 16 million songs we have one of the biggest on-demand music libraries in the world...Music is inherently social. That's why we built the best social features into Spotify for easy sharing and the ultimate in music discovery."
