Global Harmony: Spotify App Expands its Reach with 11 New Languages

In an exciting move to further embrace global listeners, Spotify announced on Monday that it has introduced support for 11 additional languages in its app. Music enthusiasts can now enjoy the popular streaming platform in Arabic (Egypt), Arabic (Morocco), Arabic (Saudi Arabia), Basque, Bosnian, English (UK), Galician, Macedonian, Spanish (Argentina), Spanish (Mexico), and Traditional Chinese (Hong Kong), bringing the total number of supported languages to an impressive 74.

As the largest music streaming service worldwide in terms of market share, Spotify boasts an extensive music library and a rapidly expanding podcast collection. However, it’s not just the vast selection that contributes to its popularity. Spotify’s commitment to inclusivity and its availability in regional languages sets it apart from many other platforms.

The app initially launched with support for 27 languages, and in March 2021, Spotify made headlines by adding support for 36 additional languages, including several spoken in different parts of India. This expansion coincided with the company’s announcement of plans to launch in over 80 new markets across Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, and Latin America. As Spotify continues its global expansion, it recognizes the importance of catering to diverse linguistic preferences.

“This expansion will provide users with an even more personalized experience, allowing them to access Spotify in their native or local language,” stated the company in a press release announcing the introduction of the new languages. “As more people gain access to Spotify, we can foster deeper connections between creators and their audiences.” You can find the complete list of supported languages on Spotify’s official website.

Coinciding with this language expansion, Spotify is also testing a fresh user interface (UI) on the web version of its platform. The update replaces the plain sidebar with a more interactive and expandable version, offering quicker access to playlists, podcasts, and other features. Additionally, the main section receives a redesign with rounded corner cards, providing a visually enhanced browsing experience.

While Spotify has yet to make an official announcement about the web UI redesign, it appears to be in the testing phase and available to a limited group of users. If you’re eager to explore the newly added regional languages on the Spotify app, keep an eye out for updates and ensure you have the latest version installed.

With its expanded language support and ongoing improvements to the user experience, Spotify is solidifying its position as a global music and podcast hub, catering to the diverse preferences and needs of listeners worldwide.
