Commercial music streaming service provider Spotify is now officially available in the Philippines through a partnership with Coca-Cola. Originally available in select countries over the world, Spotify brings free and legal on-demand music streaming service to Filipinos with over 25 million tracks available, from both international and local artists.
If you’re too excited about the music streaming service and you went straight to Spotify’s official website, expect to get a “Spotify is currently not available in your country” page. Well, that is pretty much normal, as access to Spotify Philippines is currently on an exclusive invite basis as of the moment. But don’t fret, as we have all the info you need in order to gain access to Spotify, as well as the details on how to run the app on your computer.
To sign up for a Philippine account for Spotify, all you need first is to shoot Coca-Cola Philippines an e-mail. Fill in the subject box of your e-mail with “Coca Cola Spotify” and send it to [email protected] You’ll then get an e-mail response in no time, with a unique Spotify activation code, just like the screenshot below.
After getting the e-mail, just click the Sign up link on the image or simply click this. You’ll then be directed to a page just like below, where you’ll be prompted to enter your desired username, e-mail address, birthdate, gender and activation code for your Spotify account.
After successfully signing up, all you need to do is to download the Spotify app compatible to your computer’s OS. Don’t worry, as Spotify knows exactly what OS you are using.
Finally, run the Spotify app on your computer to start streaming your favorite tracks, on-demand and legally.
Additionally, you can take advantage of the 30-day free trial of Spotify’s premium service, as part of their preview promotion. When activated, this allows you to stream unlimited music on your desktop, without all the annoying ads.
Sadly, the Spotify app for smartphones and tablets are still unavailable in the country, as well as the optional paid subscriptions users can avail for off-line playback of tracks and music downloads.
So, go ahead and send that e-mail to Coca-Cola to get your exclusive invite and start streaming your favorite tracks legally, on-demand with Spotify. And share to us your experience with the comment section below.
