Spotify now available in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong


Spotify logoYou’ve probably heard the news: Swedish online music streaming service Spotify is now available in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong. Following Deezer and KKBOX, and preceding Rdio (hearsay), Spotify is probably the only service which name quite clearly echoes its business in people’s minds: unlimited access to legal music, with a monthly subscription basis. Spotify has launched simultaneously in five other countries yesterday: Mexico, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Iceland, bringing its presence to 28 markets around the globe.

Spotify is a very light desktop app, looking like an iTunes library, where you can browse music, create your playlists and follow other users. Unlike other services, Spotify doesn’t propose editorial picks and playlists, and only features a handful of recommended albums and radios. Following other users is therefore advised to help you in your musical discovery quest!
