Worth the wait?

It's been a long, painful wait, but Spotify (www.spotify.com/th) has finally launched in Thailand. 

The unlimited music streaming service announced its arrival with a Facebook post saying "#SawasdeeSpotify" this morning. 

Spotify is available both free (with ads and lower sound quality) and "premium" paid subscriptions across mobile, computer and tablet.

Prices start at B129/month for the indiviual package, which is on par with competitor Apple Music (B129) and compares favorably with Deezer (B155) and JOOX (B139). A family package, covering up to six people who live at the same address, is B199. You can currently try it out first with a 30-day free trial.

After downloading the app, it asks you about your favorite artists and bands then gives you something they call a "Welcome Playlist." Regular features like the Discover Weekly and Daily Mix Playlists are not available yet in the Thai version but will launch soon.

Anticipation for Spotify's arrival has intensified since a job ad looking for a Music Editor for Thailand was spotted in May.

Launched in Stockholm in 2008, Spotify is a digital music streaming service that claims to offer over a million songs. Previously people who wished to access the service in Thailand could only do so by using a VPN.
