It was a long time coming, but Spotify is finally live for one and all in Canada.

Following an invite-only period that kicked off earlier this summer, Canadians can now access the music-streaming service that has steadily been taking the world by storm over the past six years. Today’s full public launch comes more than 3 years after it finally arrived in the US.

As with other markets, Canadian subscribers can access around 20 million songs across mobile, tablet and desktop, with audio-quality of up to 320Kbps. The free ad-supported tier is limited to shuffle only on mobile devices, though you can upgrade to Spotify Premium for $10 (CAD) per month to unlock everything and remove adverts.

You can access Spotify on the Web, Desktop, Android, iOS and Windows Phone. For offline mode (Premium subscribers only), there is a 3 device and 10,000 song limit, which equates to 3,333 songs maximum per-device.

Spotify is available in more than 50 markets around the world.
