Spotify in Ukraine (Yet another attempt)

Okay, so let's do this again. I know this topic had been discussed here several times, but we must insist until it's finally done.

 

Dear spotify, we really need your service here, and this is why. What do we have right now?

 

- Thousands of people use Spotify via VPN or some other doubtful services.

- Thousands of people pay for Spotify with help of their friends from Europe / USA, or using their secondary PayPal accounts, which is not what they want to do.

- Thousands of people have to use Apple Music / Deezer / Google Play / etc., whereas many of them admin spotify to be much better.

- Thousands of people want to pay you, but now their money go to google/deezer/apple.

- Hundreds of artists sucessfully promoting their music on Spotify, but they still have to use tricky workarounds to manage their artist pages and check their own records.

- Spotify is the only big streaming service not available in Ukraine at this moment.


Right here, on this very community website, a lot of listeners from Ukraine have been demanding it since 2014. And they still are.

 

We need spotify to work in Ukraine.

Sorry, but your answer is quite disappointing. You wrote a standard reaction to such an issue, not even trying to get into details.

 

This is not a spontaneous suggestion. People have been inviting Spotify to launch in Ukraine since 2014 (!). And all this time support team ignores us, just saying general words like "we are launching in new countries as often as possible...".

 

Just think how much the Ukrainian community is loyal to your service, that we still wait and want to use Spotify in our country, despite your indifferent attitude to us during all this time.

 

Even if you do not plan to launch Spotify in Ukraine in the nearest future, just let us know about your plans in details. Lack of information annoys many people, your potential clients. So please respect us and give us a more detailed response on this topic.

Hey @romaniv and @Hasteg,

 

Thanks for getting back to us.

 

We are not ignoring you! But the answer @Brunelicia gave you is the only answer we can give at the moment.

 

We are trying to have Spotify available everywhere in the world. It's not so easy however and depends on a lot of factors.

 

Spotify is coming to new regions regularly so be sure to register on this page and you'll get an email as soon as there is further info :)

 

Let us know if you have further questions.

 

Have a nice day.
