SPOTIFY JOINS
THE FIGHT

Spotify is pitching in to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and assist members of the music community affected by the pandemic. A spokesperson for the streamery issued the following statement.

Like so many, we at Spotify have watched this situation unfold and we’ve been exploring a variety of ways to help those around the world navigate the challenges posed by COVID-19. Spotify has always been a place for inspiration, entertainment and education. Our goal is to continue to be all those things, but during these uncertain times, we believe we also have the added responsibility to ensure our users are getting the most up-to-date public health information.

To accomplish this on a global scale, we’ve activated our platform and made a portion of our ad inventory available for governments and nonprofits to share that information with users around the world. We are also providing direct financial support for these efforts through the CDC Foundation Emergency Response Fund and COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO. There’s no question this is also a challenging time for our creator community, and we are working to assist them through MusiCares’ COVID-19 Relief Fund to provide much needed assistance. These efforts are only the beginning. We are actively exploring ways to further leverage the Spotify platform for good in the days and weeks ahead.

Spotify also shares that it is using its platform to provide trusted health information throughout Europe; for example, in Italy, the DSP’s users were invited to participate in the #iorestoacasa (“I Stay at Home”) social awareness campaign. Stay tuned.
