Spotify is officially in South Africa and here's how much it costs

In Israel, Spotify faces competition from worldwide streaming services such as Apple Music, Deezer, and Tidal, as well as local services offered by Israel-based cellular carriers.

The Swedish-based service gives users access to millions of songs from all major record labels, including a large selection of South African artists, they can choose to stream the music or download it for later listening if they upgrade their account. Now, they've launched a new feature which allows its users to add information to song credits.

By experimenting with the tool, Line-In, it hopes to better understand how Spotify listeners interpret music, so that it can improve experiences for both listeners and artists.

From there, they are taken to Line-In's web interface, which lets them suggest a wide variety of attributes, including the language of the lyrics of any given song, aliases used by an artist and even links to external websites. They also check to see on how accurate your past suggestions have been. Spotify says more features will come to Line-In over time. If you're totally off from what other people suggest in past edits, it might be harder for your contributions to be considered. The company held a festive launch event this morning attended by some of the company's senior executives. In the process of recommending, selecting and playing music, it accesses 5 petabytes of this data every single day.
