Spotify readying launch in Canada

Spotify coming to Canada

Another music streaming service is coming shortly to Canada. Following Google Play Music’s recent launch in Canada, it’s now Spotify that’s getting ready to make its way to Canada. To do so, it has begun to ask interested Canadians to sign up for an invitation to try out the service ahead of its official launch.

A statement received by iMore suggests that the launch is still a few months away. As Spotify explains, it needs the time to ready a truly Canadian experience.

We know there is a lot of excitement and demand for Spotify in Canada and we want to reward those fans who have patiently waited for the launch, so we will begin sending out invitations to users who have signed up on the online waiting list shortly. Over the coming months we will be gradually inviting users on to the service in an attempt to systematically scale Spotify in the most manageable way possible.

When Spotify launches in a specific country we always make sure that the experience is curated for local tastes and culture. That means great local content and local curation of the music discovery experience. Spotify in Canada needs to be much more than just the Canadian version of Spotify in the US. That is why we are taking our time to make sure that the service we launch in Canada is the best possible experience for music fans from B.C. to Nunavut to Newfoundland.

If nothing else, the fact that Spotify is coming to Canada means more choices for consumers when it comes to music streaming services.

The Spotify app is available for Android, BlackBerry 10, iOS and Windows Phone.
