Spotify, the Swedish music streaming platform that made its debut in India last week, said that the company has crossed over one million users on the platform. A company spokesperson told IANS, "One week since its launch, Spotify now has more than one million Indian users, across both its Free and Premium tiers".

With Spotify taking on the big players in the music streaming service like Saavn, Apple Music, Gaana and Amazon Music, the company basically had arrived in India just a week ago that comes with all new features as well as regional music.

There are more than four crore songs available on the platform with 300 crore playlists for music fans in the country.

The company also recently hit the hurdle when the music label, WMG, filed for an injunction in the Bombay High Court over licensing rights.

The app is now available on mobile, desktop and tablet that is free to download and users will only have to spend Rs 119 a month to upgrade to Spotify Premium.

Spotify's music recommendation engine can be tuned to Hindi, Punjabi, Tamil and Telugu

For the first time on Spotify Free, smartphone users in India can play every song on demand.
