Spotify expands to Canada, offers invites to selected customers

updated 06:35 pm EDT, Fri August 8, 2014

Trial period will be free, pricing expected to be similar to US premium cost

Roughly a month after first announcing its expansion into Canada, subscription streaming music service Spotify is now sending invites to people who signed up to receive notification when the service was imminent. Invitations are currently still on a limited basis, but the company is testing the service in Canada presently, Electronista has verified. Canada is not yet officially listed on the company's website as one of the countries it serves, but an official debut is expected in the coming weeks.



Pricing for the new Canadian service has not yet been announced, but is expected to roughly compare to the US $10 per month for premium service, allowing for currency translation rates, notes 9to5Mac. Users who have one of the invitation codes will not be charged until the service is formally unveiled.

The service, which acts as a sort of "universal jukebox" with on-demand streaming of millions of songs, is available in over 55 countries thus far. It's unclear if it will have to emphasize and promote Canadian artists, usually a condition of similar music services in the country.
