Sorry to pinch your FAQ Spotify, but this is the one piece of information that isn’t very easy to find on your site that everyone wants to know:
So here’s the answer:
We’ve released our free advertising supported version in Sweden, Norway, Finland, the UK, France and Spain. In most other countries Spotify Premium is available for purchase.
Spotify is a great streaming music service. Its search facility is brilliant – letting you meander or focus or explore deeper in whatever way takes your fancy. In short, it fits with how you might want to listen to music at any particular moment.
Its perfect for that quick (embarrassing) foray down memory lane; that mood-themed background for a special evening; for switching to ‘radio’ mode and letting Spotify open up new worlds you would never have otherwise listened to.
I liked it so much that I happily blogged about it for a couple of months and gave away over 400 of the Spotify invites which access to the free service at that point required. An effective use of social media marketing, I thought.
But these days, UK residents can sign up for the ad-supported, free version of Spotify without an invite. Cool!
But the traffic to my blog proves that are a lot of people from a lot of countries who still think they can use Spotify if they get an invite. Either someone at Spotify isn’t getting the message across or they’re enjoying the rest of the world thinking it can get on board…
