Spotify is set to shut down the service it used to host in an effort to focus on more music, and is now moving to a new site that will provide a “more personalized experience for our users.”
The move, announced Tuesday, comes just weeks after Spotify launched a new streaming service called Beatport.
While the service is free, it will include a subscription to Spotify Premium, which will let users stream tracks and albums by artists.
Spotify Premium is also currently available in Canada.
Spotify’s new service will also allow users to download and stream music without the need for a subscription.
While Spotify’s service was previously available in the United States and Canada, the company said it would be bringing the service to Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
The move to a more streamlined service is expected to make it easier for Spotify to get music from the same artists, groups, and albums that it currently hosts in its catalog.
Spotify previously had several streaming services that allowed users to stream artists and tracks from around the world, including Spotify Connect, which was launched in 2016.
Spotify Connect is now no longer available in Europe, Canada, Australia and New England, according to a Spotify spokesperson.
Spotify announced the move to Beatport in January.
The company has been in a tough spot with its music streaming business.
Spotify has been losing subscribers as consumers continue to use streaming services to download music.
Spotify said in November that it had lost 4.9 million users in the first half of the year.
Spotify is also the most-used streaming service in the U.S., according to the research firm iSpotcheap.
Spotify lost 5.1 million subscribers in the quarter that ended in May, down from 5.4 million a year ago.
