Issue: 

Since spotify officially launched in India, please enable the skill to be used in India. 

It doesn't need much work as no translation would be required either.

Wow. This should not take so much time. Really says a lot about what you really feel about the indian market to be honest.

 

Dissapointed.

Bump to this thread. Please prioritize this. 

 

I am considering shifting from apple music to spotify, and this is a key requirement. 

 

Already subscribed to premium, only to realize that this isn't place.

As response to complacency to integrate with Alexa, I hereby opt out of premium.

 

Now the painstaking task of migrating playlist to Apple Music. Probably will delete account after migration.

 

Thank you Spotify

Anuj Dubey

The problem is they think that it's launched.
Whenever you ask the support- what is the status?  their reply is- skill is already launched in India.
and then once you give them a proof -> no, then they say, we can't commit.
I think they might act faster/ listen if we spam them with DM/Tweets .

It's March 2020 now.  I pay Rs 119.00 per month. Google music is Rs 99 per month, and Amazon music is.. free!

 

And yet, no response from the team. It's as if like they are taunting us, "Hey, look at those poor, cheap Indians thinking they got a premium service by paying more :D".

And they had the balls to call us cheap when they tried to launch.

 

There are about 30% fewer songs than Google music for sure, and the only reason to use it is the recommendations. Given that that's free anyway, I'm not missing out on anything by canceling the subscription, am I?

I'll wait till the end of this month, after that I'll remove my subscription, just post this to Twitter and Facebook and let social media take it's course.

I said I'll leave. I left. 
I don't think they **bleep** about customer retention. I did not even get a feedback form, just a simple why do you want to leave?
Options:

- Like amazon/google better

- Pricing high

and a few other such. NO mention of "our features suck". Like, the overconfidence on here is dumbfounding.

I have premium account and why should I subscribe when I don't have complete interoperability? Spotify can you please listen to all of us and give us this new year gift? 🙂

Any update on this? It's been 5 months, it's not even a big deal, you just have to add the region

If you desperately want Spotify in Alexa(Echo), Go to Amazon.com (use Amazon.in login)>Manage Content and Devices> Change Country> US and enter a random US address. Then you can use Spotify in Echo(Alexa, Play my playlist *Your_Playlist_Name* from Spotify)... Remember to set Language to "English (India)" in Alexa app or else you need to speak in American Accent. 😂😂 Have fun ❤️

Please enable the Spotify skill for India. 

 

I have paid for Spotify Premium, and I want it to work with Alexa, the same as in other countries! 

 

What is the delay?

Hey @user-removed.

 

Thanks for getting in touch!

 

We're working on getting Alexa to work in India. We can't say when we will implement this though.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience! Let us know if you have further questions.

 

Have a nice day.

393 days ago you said "We're working on getting Alexa to work in India".

What is it about your Premium Indian customers that you don't like?

We can use Apple Music on Alexa, but I would like to use my Spotify Premium account.

Is this an insurmountable problem that only affects India, or is it that you think Indian Customers Don't Matter?

 

Please reply.

It's been 8 months, any update?
How long will this take anyway, unless amazon doesn't want your service on Echo, it should've arrived long back..
