After months of speculation, it looks like Spotify has finally launched in the Indian market. This comes right after the reports emerged that Warner/Chappell Music (WCM) has filed a case in Indian courts to stop the launch. The official price of the service was spotted on the Spotify website though there is no official word from the Company. The competitive pricing indicates that the company is aiming to go full force to fight with the competition. According to the official website, the yearly subscription charge for the service has been set at Rs 1,189, which is about Rs 99 per month.

How to get started with Spotify, buy Premium

The official Spotify app for Android and Apple iOS is now available on Google Play Store and Apple App Store. If you don t see the app then wait for some time and it will be available on your device. If you visit the official Spotify website then it still shows the message that the service is not available in India. Though users can still set their account up, or log in using Facebook to get a head start. The free version of the service is available but it comes with some limitations.

The free version does not allow users to play music on multiple devices at the same time, the playback is interrupted with ads, users can t download music offline and they can t listen to the music in high quality. In the case where users already have a Spotify account then they can now change the country to India. This step is essential to make the purchase for the Premium account.

To start with the purchase process users need to head to www.spotify.com/in/purchase/offer/30-day-trial/. Once here, login using your Spotify or Facebook account and enter your credit card details to make the purchase. In addition to the credit card, users can also make payments with the help of UPI or Paytm.
