With this integration comes new playlists based on “hundreds of moods and activities”, which will be available in all subscription plans.

And speaking of subscriptions, the new plan will reach the following countries: Australia, Austria, Canada, mainland China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, UK and US.
