Spotify is the most famous music streaming service that has entertained about 140 million users all around the world till now. It was launched in Australia about six years ago. It facilitates the users over there with two ways of enjoying the music streaming. Not only this, but this platform also helps the artists of Australia to gain more Spotify followers.
Spotify free users in Australia can enjoy the music free with an ad-supported subscription. It allows the users access to the music library with 50 million songs, audios, and podcasts but with restrictions and caveats. It does not allow the free users to select one specific strain to play through the mobile app. For this, they need to choose a playlist, any album, or shuffle play to serve up the track in random order. But they can create the playlist, share, like, and download the music on all compatible devices. Moreover, Spotify free users cannot enjoy music streaming without an internet connection, and if they are outside their region, they will not be able to use Spotify for up to 14 days at one time.
Spotify users can enjoy the same streaming and access to the music library without supported ads if they have a premium subscription. These users can access the premium features of the Spotify app on Android mobiles. They enjoy high-quality audio at any place, even outside their region, without an internet connection also.
