Just over a year after it launched in Israel, Spotify will finally become available in Hebrew.
The music streaming platform announced on Wednesday that, sometime in the next couple of weeks, the website and app will become fully functional in Hebrew.
Hebrew will be the 22nd language available in the app, which is currently operational in English, Arabic, French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Thai, Turkish and much more. Spotify said the Hebrew rollout will happen gradually across iOS, Android and the desktop apps, and will update automatically for those whose phones are set to Hebrew.
Spotify is the most popular music streaming service in the world, with more than 200 million users worldwide, though it declines to break that figure down by country. After a month in operation in Israel, the company said that users listened to 2.3 million hours of music in the first three weeks of its operation, and listened to a wide range of English and Hebrew music
. At the time, Spotify said 57% of its Israeli users are between the ages of 13 and 34, and 39% of them are based in Tel Aviv.
