The country has always been a music destination, and the advent of Spotify’s new offer will make it a more enticing place for music lovers, according to the country’s digital media regulator.
The Spotify service will offer free music, along with a selection of genres including electronica, hip-hop, R&B and pop, the Indian government said on Thursday.
It will also have a music hub and music recommendations and playlists.
India has been a popular destination for digital music streaming services since its launch in 2014.
However, the service is still relatively new in the country.
In October, Spotify released a beta version of its free music service in India and said it would start offering the service in the near future.
The new offering comes after a number of high profile music festivals, including Super Bowl, Coachella, the Super Bowl party and the Indian Music Awards, were cancelled in February, and more than a dozen Indian music acts were forced to cancel concerts.
