Music lovers rejoice: your streaming and listening experience has just improved dramatically. Spotify, the world’s largest streaming service, with over 191 million listeners worldwide, has just launched in Egypt! Yup, you can download the app and start building your very own unique music library TODAY!

Spotify is known for its revolutionary and highly personalised discovery and recommendation features. Based on your own curated playlists and frequently streamed songs, the app will provide you with a release radar, discover weekly playlists, and even recommend mood and genre-specific playlists. Not only can you save and stream all your favourite songs, but with a catalogue of over 40 million songs and 3 billion playlists, you can learn even more about yourself musically, and find artists you may have never heard of otherwise.

Music is not the only thing available on Spotify; the various podcasts on all sorts of topics are also quite popular with users of this app. You can find podcasts in almost any genre, from horror to comedy to lifestyle and self-improvement, the possibilities are pretty much endless.

Spotify also gives users the opportunity to follow artists to receive updates on new music, as well as follow and add friends, and share music easily to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, so you can exchange music and see what your friends are listening to! Think of it like a musical social media platform, where the interconnectedness can only help your musical library grow and evolve.

Spotify MENA is launching a fully Arabic product, with a wide range of local playlists such as “Today’s Top Arabic Hits”, “Oriental Chill Vibes”, and “Arabic EDM”. Cecilia Qvist, Spotify’s Global Head of Markets, stated that Spotify in the Middle East will allow music fans to “enjoy, discover, and share new music from both local and international artists simply and easily.” So no matter where you exist on the wide spectrum of musical tastes, there’s sure to be something for you.

Anyone can stream for free forever, or you can upgrade to Spotify Premium for the ultimate experience at only EGP 49.99 per month. This upgrade will allow you to enjoy music without ads, download songs to listen to offline, and the ability to listen to any artists at any time with unlimited skips.

Whether you’ve been waiting for Spotify to launch in Egypt for a while, or are just learning about the wonders of this streaming service right now, prepare to have your music world become a lot more interesting.
