Spotify has taken another step forward in its expansion plans, today announcing that its music streaming service will now be available to customers in Denmark, solidifying its presence in Europe with the addition of another Scandanavian country.
Detailing the news in a blog post, Spotify says that it is “crossing the Øresund straight and bringing a world of music to Denmark”, offering the same three tiered services that it offers to customers worldwide.
This means that Danish Spotify users will be able to utilise Spotify Free, Spotify Unlimited and Spotify Premium, providing them with ad-subsidized streams, unlimited playback and with its most expensive option, access via their smartphone and tablet devices.
Spotify recently crossed the Atlantic and made its service available to consumers in the U.S, partnering with Coca-Cola and Sprite, Chevrolet, Motorola, Reebok, Sonos and a number of other brands to roll out the service via an invitation-based system which saw huge numbers of signups in the first 24 hours.
The company has also utilised Facebook’s new Social Graph to better share the music its users like and listen to via the world’s largest social network. It was forced to adapt its service slightly to allow users to opt-out of sharing the music they listened too, adding its new “Private Listening Mode” to stop updates being synced to Facebook accounts by default.
