Spotify features the title of the world's most subscribed music streaming platform, dwarf industry heavyweights such as Apple, Google, Gaana, and JioSaavn. The main attraction of Spotify is the ease of use, the elegant user interface and a large selection of curated playlists. License Issues aside, Spotify has a huge collection of music that totaled more than 40 million in 2018, although the company has not given any official numbers.

In a market as diverse as India Spotify will have a hard time serving everyone in a country as diverse as India. Apps like Gaana and JioSaavn offer music in more than 15 languages, while Spotify offers only 7-language content.

A place where Spotify did well is the price. Spotify has offered daily, monthly and yearly packs starting at Rs 13, Rs 119 (after the third month Rs 129) and Rs 1,1189. There is also a 50 percent student discount for the monthly subscription package.

These prices are ridiculous compared to what bills Spotify in the US, ie $ 10 + tax for a month (about 800 rupees). , In India, we see that almost all competitors offer roughly the same price, with Gaana and JioSaavn offering the lowest monthly rates of Rs 99.

Whether Spotify is a success, we will see Long term, but for the time being, here is a comparison table in which Spotify is compared to its counterparts in the Indian market.
