Thus surpassing its main competitor, Apple Music - present in 167 countries - Spotify opens the door to several African countries such as Angola, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau and Timor-Leste.
As in countries where the platform is currently present, the streaming service is divided into two modes: a free subscription and a paid subscription, the latter called Spotify Premium.
It is also known that the worldwide musical repository of the platform will be available in these countries, however the company has announced its intention to expand that same repository through collaboration with local artists. Musical recommendations will be adapted to users in each country.
At the end of last year, the Spotify platform had 345 million active users, with 155 million having a paid subscription.
"Audio is our story and our future. Our platform connects listeners with the art they love," said Daniel Ek, CEO and co-founder of Spotify.
