Music streaming service Spotify has expanded its international footprint, Bringing Audio to 80+ New Markets including Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Pakistan.

This expands Spotify’s rollout in South Asia to four countries, leaving only Myanmar. Over the past fortnight, Spotify also launched in several smaller countries around the world, including Botswana, Gambia, Gabon, Brunei, and Georgia. Relatively larger markets like Nigeria and Kenya also got access to Spotify overnight.

In Nepal, Spotify Premium costs $2.99 per month (around Rs 345),  LKR 529 in Sri Lanks, PKR 299 in Pakistan, and BDT 199 in Bangladesh.

Our dedication to international artists and listeners is unwavering. Working closely with local creators and partners, we’ll deliver a Spotify experience that meets the unique needs of each market, with scaled language translations and specialized payment formats. These 80+ markets represent more than 1 billion people—potential Spotify listeners who have yet to tap into the power of our platform.

Spotify offers digital copyright-restricted recorded music and podcasts, including more than 70 million songs, from record labels and media companies. As a freemium service, basic features are free with advertisements and limited control, while additional features, such as offline listening and commercial-free listening, are offered via paid subscriptions. Users can search for music based on artist, album, or genre, and can create, edit, and share playlists.
