I've been writing about Spotify launching in India for the last three years. The music streaming service was slated to make its debut in 2016, but licensing hurdles put an end to that. The rumormill suggested an eventual launch in 2017 and last year, but it wasn't to be.
Early this year, it was revealed that Spotify signed a deal with T-Series to stream its vast content library globally, paving the way for a launch in India. And as we head into March, the streaming service is finally making its debut in India, with the app now live on the Play Store. Here's how much Spotify costs in India, and ow you can get started.
Here's how much Spotify costs in India
Spotify monthly plans start off at just ₹119 ($1.65), and you can get an annual plan for just ₹1,189 ($16.70). You can also pick up short-term plans — including a day pack, seven-day plans, and more. Here's the full breakdown:
- Annual plan - ₹1,189

- One-day plan - ₹13
- Seven-day plan - ₹39

There's a caveat: if you have a premium account from another country, you'll first have to get rid of that subscription before you can switch your account to India.

The streaming service is now live in India, so all you need to do is head to the Spotify website to start the free 30-day trial. You'll be able to select a plan shortly thereafter.
