“Until now, Spotify for Artists has only spoken one language,” says Spotify in a blog post.
Spotify adds its “vision” is for a music industry where “all artists across the world have access to data and tools that help them build their fanbases and grow their careers.”
The update now enables Brazilian Portuguese, Canadian French, Czech, Dutch, European French, European Spanish, Finnish, German, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Malay, Polish, Spanish for Latin America, Swedish, and Turkish.
These 16 additional languages are now available on the Spotify for Artists web and mobile app.
Spotify also says it plans to make more languages available in the future.
The announcement comes as non-native English language artists have continued to pull in huge numbers on the streaming platform.
