Spotify launched in the Philippines with partnership of Globe Telecom

Spotify, the world’s most popular music streaming service, was launched  in the Philippines last April 8, 2014 at 71 Gramercy in Makati City. The very comprehensive music platform can be accessed through mobile, tablet and desktop. What better way to make music accessible worldwide for free is though Spotify.

Just a week before the formal launch in the Philippines, I was able to create my Spotify account via an access code (since the platform was only open to select countries) and the online experience is just amazing! The interface and features make music more enjoyable. You get to search for specific artists, genres and songs. If you don't have anything in mind because your music interests are just so vast, then you can just set it at random (shuffle). The things that you can do with music thru Spotify is just limitless.

Gone were the days when you had to purchase a song before you can listen to it. At spotify, you can listen to millions of songs from all over the world at your fingertips -- for FREE! You can listen to whatever music you want, whenever you want, on any device. Spotify makes it easier than ever to discover, manage and share music with your friends. Offering amazing audio quality of up to 320kbps and with a brand new design, playing your favorite music never looked and felt this good.

Listen All You Can
There are over 30 million songs available and updated daily, mixing global hits with one of the most extensive OPM catalogues available. You can also follow your friends and celebrities you admire for the music they listen to and for the tracks of the music artists. You can also organize the music you listen to.

Download the Spotify app and listen to any song, album or artist, on any device, for free. Shuffle play on mobile or play any song on tablet or desktop.
