Spotify during live streaming announced its plans to expand to 85 countries and add 36 languages to its platform in the process.

The company’s reason for such an expansion is to make use of the additional people in countries across Asia, Africa, the Pacific, and the Caribbean to use its platform.

Following the expansion, Spotify will be available in over 170 countries.

In the next few days, Spotify will launch in countries like Nigeria, Tanzania, Ghana, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Samoa, Jamaica, Bahamas, and Belize.

“These moves represent Spotify’s broadest market expansion to date,” Spotify said.

Spotify launched in 2008 just a year after the first iPhone was released and it has amassed 345 million monthly active users across 95 countries. Of those, 155 million are premium paying subscribers.

While Spotify started out as a music streaming platform, it now allows people to listen to podcasts, audiobooks, and meditations.

The firm has spent hundreds of millions of dollars to secure exclusive podcast series including a new show from Barack and Michelle Obama that will feature Bruce Springsteen.
