I know you are only trying to help but this "market-specific" excuse seems to the implicit answer for any such discrepancies. At least if EVERYONE in India is denied this feature I can understand but when that is not the case the whole thing seems shady. Very disappointing.
We're always looking for new ways to improve the product experience and often have different features available across markets due to various factors.
We are still testing the Personalized listening experience in India and that is why for now playlists such as Discover Weekly and Release Radar are only available to a limited percentage of users.
If this is a feature you'd like have it available to all users in your market, we recommend having a look in the Idea Exchange, to see if someone else has already made a similar suggestion, and if not post your own.

@Xenia That is not correct, limiting this to a smaller percentage while still charging customers is a shady practice. Spotify should be upfront when it says that a feature would not be available, even if you are premium. I have been a premium user since launch day, to deny me this feature while making this available to friends I recommended is difficult to digest. Having said that, I reached out to support and they are claiming it is an account issue. I recreated my account today and I have been instructed to wait 3 weeks to see if this comes. It is terribly disappointing to go through this, unfortunately I seem to have drawn the short straw. I would think that "market-specific", "still testing" are all suggestive of subversive practices, if I am paying I expect the FULL package and not some half baked product. I thought the community would be on the side of the cheated user but maybe I am mistaken. Either way this question can be closed.
That does not seem right, my friend in India has the same premium subscription and he has been getting discover regularly, so how can this discrimination be possible given that we are both in the same country. This does not make any sense, what is the point of being a premium subscriber when this basic feature is not available.
