Music streaming giant Spotify continue to grow its presence in the market by offering new entertainment- through streaming services in India.
Spotify has launched its service in India, hoping to tap into millions of consumers in a rapidly growing market.
Multilingual music recommendations and playlists featuring music from popular Bollywood movies are among the features on offer to attract users.
With the current move of the music streaming powerhouse, it will face stiff competition from rivals already in India.
It is branching out beyond music and recently launched in the Middle East.
The Swedish firm will compete with other services already operating in India, such as Gaana, Saavn, Google Play and Apple Music.
“Indians love music. It’s an inherent part of our lifestyle and culture, whether we pray, work, or relax,” Spotify India’s managing director Amarjit Singh Batra said in a statement.
“The mobile internet revolution has led to a rapid rise in the number of connected Indians, making music streaming the preferred way to enjoy music here,” Batra added.
India’s music streaming market currently has around 150 million users, said Tarun Pathak, associate director at Counterpoint Research.
That could reach up to 400 million users in the next three to four years, he said.
Spotify Premium will be priced at 119 rupees ($1.68, £1.27) a month, which is broadly comparable with prices offered by other services in India.
