My Question or Issue

I was awaiting Spotify's arrival to India with bated breath and immediately signed up for the trial when the option was up. But my glee slowly faded when I saw how much of my favourite music isn't available at all. I understand that Spotify is having licensing issues but I didn't think it would be this severe.

I could have lived without stuff that wasn't released in India at all, but a majority of the music that's missing is readily available on other streaming services like Apple Music.

I was so ready to cancel all my other subscriptions and switch to Spotify for good, but I don't know if I want to now. If this isn't sorted out by the end of my trial, I will not be renewing my subscription with Spotify.

I really hope that won't be necessary. I'm a big fan.

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for inquiring into this matter.

We're happy to report that Spotify users in India can access music from Warner Music Group artists.

 

Happy listening!

Agreed, no grateful dead, no led Zeppelin and many many more missing. This is very disappointing.

Yeah, half of my favorites are greyed out! I thought I can immediately shift from apple music! Looks like it's gonna take a while. 

Spotify for india does not have some songs

Casual Listener

Hi, i use spotify free mainly on my windows device and occasionally on android. I live in India so i used a vpn to download spotify and created a us spotify account. Recently spotify became available in india so i changed my account country to india and it was fine but then i realised many of the songs that were available on spotify when i had us set as my country are not available.for example, ed Sheeran's most songs are not available like perfect and many others are not available. So i tried switching back to us and it worked it shows the songs.o just want to know when will all the songs be available in India.

Hey @Atharva_K!

 

Spotify would love to have all the world’s music available to everyone. However, some artists and tracks aren't currently available.

I'd recommend reading this article for more info.

Hope this helps!

@spotify people, at least give us some confirmation if the songs are gonna be available anytime soon. Like, practically none of even Ed Sheeran's songs are  available in India. Because I was excited about the release, I immediately bought the 1 year premium subscription, without knowing this issue existed since I never faced this issue with Google play music. Since the same songs were available in Google play as well as apple music, I know it's not an issue with the record label and India, bit rather the label and Spotify's india division.

Please either give a confirmation so that I can cancel the subscription or add the songs.

Bro it got released in India last night. You can now get it and it's 30 days free when you sign up for premium and then rupee 119 per month

I'm very much aware of that. Did you even read what I wrote lol.

What I'm saying is I was having some payment issues with my cards so had to get the one year subscription, which is still cheaper than getting one month free and paying for the rest of the year w/ monthly subscription. However that's not the point. What I'm saying is that A $HIT LOAD OF SONGS AREN'T AVAILABLE which were available on google play music. Just wanna know if it's because Spotify was just released yesterday or it was some issue which won't be fixed within this month.
