Looking for an alternative to Apple Music, Deezer, or Google Music? We have a lot of options when it comes to music streaming services in SA but now South Africans can add one more to their list of choices because Swedish music streaming giant, Spotify is now available here in the Republic.

One of the key features of Spotify is its personalisation, which allows fans to find the music they already love with ease, and will also help them discover new music and artists to love, based on their taste and listening patterns. When a new user joins Spotify, they are taken through a ‘Taste Onboarding’ process, which helps Spotify quickly learn more about their music tastes.

Gamers will also be glad to know that you can enjoy Spotify on your PS4. You can listen to any song, album or playlist on demand, or even control Spotify via the PlayStation Music app through the Quick Menu without interrupting the game.

MyBroadBand recently released stats indicating that South Africa’s adoption of music streaming services had grown by over 300 percent between 2015 and 2016 – adding more weight to the argument that our market is open to more streaming options being added.

Users can listen for free forever, or alternatively can upgrade to Spotify Premium for the ultimate Spotify experience for only R59.99 per month, which gives you added features such as access to all new releases, ad-free listening, offline listening, and unlimited skips.

You can download the Spotify app today via the Android or iOS app store or by heading to the official website.
