Music streaming service Spotify is at long last gearing up to launch in Canada, and they're inviting some of those that have expressed interest to try it out first. The invitations will be sent out to a selection of those Canadians that have signed up at Spotify's Canada page, though it might take a while to get such an invitation if you're just now signing up.
Spotify chimed in with an official statement on the matter, saying that they "want to reward those fans who have waited patiently for the launch":
While the Spotify app is now available in the iOS and Android stores we have not officially launched in Canada. Right now users can download the app and sign up for a waiting list on Spotify.ca.
We know there is a lot of excitement and demand for Spotify in Canada and we want to reward those fans who have patiently waited for the launch, so we will begin sending out invitations to users who have signed up on the online waiting list shortly. Over the coming months we will be gradually inviting users on to the service in an attempt to systematically scale Spotify in the most manageable way possible.
When Spotify launches in a specific country we always make sure that the experience is curated for local tastes and culture. That means great local content and local curation of the music discovery experience. Spotify in Canada needs to be much more than just the Canadian version of Spotify in the US. That is why we are taking our time to make sure that the service we launch in Canada is the best possible experience for music fans from B.C. to Nunavut to Newfoundland.
With a gradual and systematic scaling of Spotify in Canada it may take a while before to get through the queue up invitation requests, but do know that The Great White North is at least one more step closer to finally getting Spotify. In the meantime, you can grab Spotify for free from Google Play.
