Spotify, one of the world’s leading music and audio services, has announced an impending hike in its subscription packages. The Verge, an international technology website, revealed Spotify’s price increase as it was announced on Monday. “
So that we can keep innovating, we are changing our Premium prices across a number of markets around the world,” The Verge quoted Spotify’s official statement on Monday.
“These updates will help us continue to deliver value to fans and artists on our platform.” This decision from Spotify will affect its hundred-million subscribers across 51 countries.
The world’s leading music and audio service has an estimated 515 million users and about 40 percent of that population are monthly subscribers. It is the first time in 12 years Spotify has increased its subscription prices across board. Users who have enjoyed audiobooks, podcasts and music have been curious about how the subscription hike would affect their location.
However, Nigerian subscribers can breathe a sigh of relief as Nigeria is not among the countries listed to be impacted by the new subscription package.
The countries officially listed to be impacted by the new subscription package are Andorra, Albania, Argentina, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Ecuador, Estonia, Finland, and France.
