Spotify Likely to Expand to Thailand and Vietnam This Year

It appears likely that Spotify, the popular Swedish music streaming service, will expand to Vietnam and Thailand this year.

Two sources recently told TechCrunch that the company is planning to launch its music streaming business in Thailand and Vietnam, while also looking into expanding to India.

Spotify declined to comment on the issue for the tech news site, but they are currently hiring for "music editor" positions for the two Southeast Asian nations. This is common practice before a full country launch, and the jobs would be based at Spotify's Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore, TechCrunch shares.

The news source adds that in October 2015, Spotify announced that it was hiring a music editor for Indonesia, only to launch in the country six months later.

The streaming service currently has around 100 million registered users and over 50 million paying subscribers in more than 60 countries.
