Spotify is now available in the Philippines

Are you a music lover? Want to hype up with the latest music?

This week, Coca-Cola Philippines gave an exclusive access to the music-streaming platform, Spotify.


Spotify was launched by Swedish startup, Spotify AB in October 2008. It’s available over 50 languages and can be used in Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7,Windows Phone, Linux,BlackBerry OS, Android,iOS, Chrome OS and OS X.

You can browse a wide variety of songs, sorted by genre, or artist. And upon listening to several playlists yesterday, I was stunned over the collection of songs by other Spotify users.

Good thing about Spotify is that you can share your playlists to each other. Also, you can create a community by following your favey artist, playlists and fellow Spotify users. You might get bumped to someone who loves to listen Beatles or Miley Cyrus.

How did I got an access? Here’s how:

  1. Send an email to with the subject line: Coca-Cola Spotify.
  2. You have to wait for a reply from them. They will send you the access code.
  3. Follow the instructions and download Spotify on desktop.


Why I’m hooked with Spotify? I can listen to my favorite music while working on my daily tasks at work.

Here’s the sneak peek of what Spotify looks like.
