The revolutionary music streaming service is about to conquer even more listeners. On April 1st Spotify announced the renewal of its global licensing partnership with Warner Music Group (WMG) and spreading further to “additional markets” which aren’t named yet.
Customers in India are especially happy with the renewal part since they now have access to the WMG-represented artists. The WMG’s publishing company Warner Chappell previously had the copyright and licensing issues with Spotify prior to its official launch in that country.
The Indian market, with its 200 million regular streamers was also crucial to the Sweden-owned Spotify. While the company has yet to reveal its India-related figures, music streaming business in India as a whole is expected to reach $244 million, reports Techcrunch.
