Spotify is a Swedish based music-streaming service/application which was launched back in October 2008. Through Spotify, you can listen to your favorite songs and podcasts for free. It is considered to be the best application to stream music and podcasts on smartphones. A few days ago, the company announced that it acquired Megaphone, a podcast hosting company for $235 million. Now Spotify can find out which podcast people usually listen to without them having the Spotify application.
We are still in the early chapters of the streaming audio industry story, but it is absolutely clear that the potential is significant. We look forward to Megaphone joining Spotify on our mission to accelerate smarter podcast monetization for advertisers and podcast publishers powered by a scaled audience and state-of-the-art technology
Just like few other services, Spotify is also not available in Pakistan. So, people had to use a VPN to make an account and use Spotify on their smartphones. However, recently a Verified Instagram Page “Spotify Pakistan” was made, which claims that the audio-streaming service is finally coming to Pakistan.
No official statement has been made by Spotify yet. However, we are quite hopeful now that Spotify will come to Pakistan.
