New markets will have access to the service’s full global content library and Spotify will later adapt the catalogue to suit local tastes. Another added plus is that Spotify, according to the report by Engadget, will be working with local artists and rights holders in order to expand the libraries for each market.
This is great for all artists as people will be able to access their content on the major streaming platform.
There was no date mentioned for the launch, the report said: “over the coming days”. But I can live with “Spotify is coming to Zimbabwe” for now.
