Spotify expanding into Vietnam and Thailand According to Reports


Music-streaming service Spotify is planning to increase its presence in Asia with a move into Vietnam and Thailand reports TechCrunch which cites two sources close to Spotify. The report also says the music screaming company is eyeing a move into India at some point this year as well.

According to the report:

Spotify declined to comment when contacted by TechCrunch, however, in a tell-tale sign, it is hiring for “music editor” positions for both Vietnam and Thailand. Both jobs are based at the company’s Asia Pacific headquarters in Singapore, but the creation of that role is a common pre-cursor to a full country launch. For example, back in October 2015, Spotify was hiring a music editor for Indonesia — the company launched its service in the country six months later. That suggests that launches in Vietnam and Thailand could happen in 2017.


 

According to Spotify the service has upwards of 100 million registered users and more than 50 million paid subscribers. It is currently available in 60 countries worldwide.

The company is also considering an IPO in the future.
