It has been reported by TechCentral that Spotify will offer a free 30-day trial to its Premium service, which costs R59.99/month after the trial period ends, similar to that of Apple Music. There is also a free tier. That Premium price matches the local offerings from Google, Apple, Simfy Africa, Deezer and others.

The official launch of the company will be held in Johannesburg on Tuesday with the Spotify app also now available in the Google Play Store for Android phones.

Further details about the Spotify service, pricing and content will be made at the press conference.
