Spotify is encouraging users to "use your musical prowess to do good" and correct its music metadata to help artists connect with more fans, and help other people discover new music by fuelling its personalisation engines.

"We're incredibly excited to launch Spotify in Israel with a revolutionary new music experience", said Veronica Diquattro, Spotify's managing director in southern and eastern Europe.

Spotify attributes the fall to a cut in content costs following new licensing agreements with record labels and music publishers, it said in the almost 200-page filing. The app is accessible through the desktop app by clicking the three dots next to the album, song or artist and choosing the "suggest an edit" option.

"Over the past few months, we've confirmed our beliefs that listeners care deeply about the content on Spotify-they want the data to be useful and accurate", a company spokesperson told Variety.

Spotify, the world's largest music, podcast, and video streaming service officially launched in Israel on Monday afternoon, Globes reports.

Spotify boasts over 159 million listeners worldwide. Meantime, it has taken 5 months for Apple Music to gain 8 million subscribers.
