How to Get Started with Spotify in Uganda
Similar to any other streaming platform, Spotify is an easy-to-use service that only requires you to have a steady data connection and a streaming device which could be your smartphone, computer, PlayStation, or streaming stick. However, the service has not partnered with any local mobile operator to ease streaming costs in terms of data, but we expect a reveal from a telco like MTN Uganda or Airtel Uganda since Spotify is a much better streaming service compared to Tidal, Deezer, or Apple Music.
Well, to get started with Spotify in Uganda, simply head to the service’s main website, hit the signup button to register with your email address and unique password, then, you’ll have a choice to download the Spotify App to your device which could be a Smartphone, Computer, or another.
Once registered, you’ll be able to listen to music for free, but have limitations like Ads playing in your streams, and no-access to downloads until you choose any of the service’s available subscription plans. So, why not stream some music to support your favorite artists? On the platform, you’ll be able to listen to both Ugandan Music, as well as International and Africal tracks you love.
