The highly popular Sweden based streaming music service Spotify has finally confirmed that it is all set to launch its service in the US.
Its been a while now since reports of the company opening up shop in the States started surfacing all over the media, and needless to say, music fans all across the country were eagerly waiting for official confirmation from the company.
“The award-winning music service that’s taken Europe by storm will soon be landing on US shores. Millions of tracks ready to play instantly, on your computer and your phone. Any track, any time, anywhere. And it’s free!”, Spotify announced on its website.
However, the most important question probably on each and every waiting music-lover's mind is: how “free” is Spotify going to make the soon-to-be launched service in the country?Existing companies in the US that offer similar services to Spotify, including Napster, Rdio, MOG and Rhapsody are not free and charge users somewhere between $5 and $10 on a monthly basis depending on what plans they want to go with.
If Spotify truly comes up with an absolutely free service, it could have a far reaching impact on how US users look at the music subscription services industry.
