Spotify launches in 3 new countries: South Africa, Vietnam, and Israel

Spotify have moved one step closer to streaming music to the entire world going live in 3 new countries.

Spotify is now live for music streaming in 64 countries around the world after launching in South Africa, Israel, and Vietnam. This introduces a massive new potential audience for the music streaming giant with 160 million people across all 3 countries now able to sign up to stream music on Spotify.

Customers in South Africa and Vietnam will be able to sign up to a 30 day free trial of Spotify Premium offering unlimited, ad-free music streaming. After their trials users can sign up for 59.99 South African Rand a month (roughly $5) or 59,000 Vietnamese Dong per month (roughly $2.50). Listeners in Israel can sign up for 19.90 NIS a month (roughly $5.80) however they don’t seem to be offered a free trial.

To celebrate their launch in Israel Spotify put out a video with big time artists like Maroon 5 and Major Lazer celebrating the launch.

Their launch comes within days of Apple revealing that their streaming growth has finally caught up to Spotify’s, though Apple Music still has half the number of paying subscribers. With these new territories signing up to Spotify it may be too soon for Apple to bring out the champagne.
