Spotify is Officially Available in the United States

The day has finally come, folks – that sweet, sweet music service that was only once available to our friends ‘cross the pond is now available in the United States. I’m talking about Spotify, of course. To start, you’ll need an invitation code to join the service for free, but getting Premium or Unlimited packages will allow you to get started on your own. Here’s a quick breakdown of all three plans:

You should note that free accounts can only listen to 10 hours of music per month. If you’re a heavy listener, you might want to consider ponying up for at least premium service. For us Android folks, anyone who wants to use it on their mobile must pay for the Unlimited plan.

It’s unfortunate, but those are the breaks for a (seemingly) premier music streaming service. We have not had a chance to use Spotify before today, of course, so we can’t say it’s worth it. But if everything we hear is true, it certainly will be. Head over there now to get started. [Spotify]

    According the graphic to listen on the mobile you need the Premium plan…not he Unlimited.

    Anyone confirm this? I would consider the $5/mth but not so sure about the $10/mth.

    • Johan Winther

      Yes, that’s correct. You need a premium subscription for the mobile service.
      You guys in the US are lucky though.. Here in Sweden premium costs $15/month..

    I would love to try it, if I like it I’ll subscribe. jasafar AT yahoo.com. Thanks!

    i’m already a grooveshark mobile subscriber. is this better??

    • Johan Winther

      I personally think so because there are no legal controversies (labels are suing them) and you can have songs you already own in playlists (local files) with songs that are online.

    love grooveshark btw.

    ” If you’re a heavy listener, you might want to consider ponying up for at least premium service. For us Android folks, anyone who wants to use it on their mobile must pay for the Unlimited plan.”

    Isn’t it the other way around? Premium is needed for Android folks. and Unlimited is needed to listen for longer then 10hours

    • Ogami Itto

      Spotify Free gives you unlimited streaming…no 10 hrs/month cap. And yes, only the Premium will give you mobile streaming.

  • Ogami Itto

    “You should note that free accounts can only listen to 10 hours of music per month.”

    This is not true.

    Via Gizmodo: “Spotify has confirmed to us that free accounts have unlimited streaming, unlike European accounts which were recently capped at 10 hours per month.”
