I trust we will have the same level access to western music as they have. None of this region blocking business i see so often on youtube.

Spotify Premium price in India starts from Rs. 13 for a day, while the weekly and monthly subscription plans of Spotify are priced at Rs. 39 and Rs. 119. On the other hand, the quarterly, six-months and yearly Spotify subscription plans are priced at Rs. 389, Rs. 719 and Rs. 1189, respectively.

Premium vs Free:
  1. Audio quality: Spotify Premium offer music at a bit rate of 320 kbps, while the free version of the platform offers songs at 96 kbps on mobile devices and 160 kbps on desktops.
  2. Ads: Spotify (free version) will display ads after every four or five songs a user plays of skips; however, with Spotify Premium you won’t get a single advertisement while streaming online music.
  3. Music: Spotify Premium gives access to all the latest tracks which are made available on the free version after at least two weeks.
  4. Downloads: Offline downloads are only available on Spotify Premium and users will be able to download up to 10,000 songs per device. A Spotify Premium account can be accessed from five different devices.

Using Spotify since almost 2yrs. I think signing up via US proxy gives you a US regional account and you get to enjoy all top US etc lists and charts.
Now in India it might be another gaana type platform. And for global music lovers they have to wait or dig deep.

Lot of artists are not on Spotify as of now because of the clash with Warner.
I am on Amazon prime so Amazon Music is free and has everything.

I deleted my spotify account after they started removing Jpop, Kpop and other foreign songs from it. A lot of other countries songs were removed within one month of spotify coming to India and they were pushing only bollywood songs more.
I doubt it was because of licensing issues. Google Music , Apple Music and Amazon both have a lot of such foreign albums for sale or free streaming in their music apps.

Amazon Music has a huge amount of content, especially the genres (classical, oldies etc.) that I listen to. The list is very exhaustive. For the price of Prime, you get both video and music - it's actually very reasonable.

Spotify just didnt accept any of my Debit or credit cards. Never happened before with any service. So ended up taking Amazon Prime.
