Spotify Spots the Antipodes

Internet audio comes to Australia and New Zealand

Digital music service Spotify is now available in Australia and New Zealand.

Spotify says it gives listeners instant, on-demand access to more than 16 million tracks on their computer, mobile phone, iPad and beyond.

The company also announced the launch of the Triple J app in Australia. This app, says the firm, was specifically created for Spotify users and will showcase new tracks on the Triple J Hitlist, featured albums, and include past 100 countdowns. The app will also feature all the latest music news, says Spotify.

The service permits users to search for any artist, song or album and start playing. It is also possible to create playlists, and share music with friends.

The company offers three services, from free to paid subscriptions: Spotify Free with free, on-demand, buffer-free access to more than 16 million songs on your computer; Spotify Unlimited, which costs A$6.99 a month and includes all the features of the free service but with uninterrupted, ad-free access to Spotify; and Spotify Premium (A$11.99 a month) for access to all the music, all the time — online or offline, on a computer, mobile phone, tablet.
