Here's proof Spotify will launch in Thailand soon
Time to ditch the VPN?
It's been a long, painful wait, but it looks like music streaming giant Spotify may finally be about to launch in Thailand.
Our reason for thinking this is a newly posted job ad seeking a Music Editor for Thailand on the BetaList website. Part of the description reads, "We are looking for a world-class Music Editor from Thailand to join our Shows & Editorial team. This position will oversee Thai music for the curation/programming team at the company."
While the job is actually stationed in Spotify's Singapore office, a large part of its focus will be on the creation of "localized Thai music playlists."
Launched in Stockholm in 2008, Spotify is a digital music streaming service that claims to offer over a million songs. Currently people who wish to access the service in Thailand can only do so by using VPN.
Spotify offers both free (with ads) and "premium" paid subscriptions across mobile, computer and tablet.
What does Spotify's seemingly imminent arrival mean for the likes of Apple Music, Deezer and JOOX?
