Starting today, users in these regions can enjoy the music streaming service, which brings 50 million tracks, 4 billion playlists, and localized music curated for the local audiences.

Spotify is also bringing 200 new playlists from artists in the newly added regions, which will be available globally. Spotify for Artists, which brings live statistics and tools for artists and labels to manage their releases, is also available. The Russian market, in particular, is one where Spotify is betting big with even more local artists, special playlists and music recommendations.

Instagram music stories that allow users to share Spotify tracks will also be available in Russia. Podcasts will not be available upon launch as the Russian podcast scene is still not mature enough for Spotify’s liking.
