Music streaming service exit music has officially launched in Australia.
The music streaming service was launched on Thursday.
Exit Music Australia says it will offer a variety of music from major artists, and the service will allow users to access and listen to music from their favourite artists.
It launched on a smartphone app in Australia last week and was available on Android phones and iOS devices.
It has over 400 million users across the world and was launched by Australian entrepreneur Matt Kiley.
Exit’s music service has had more than 3.4 million downloads since its launch in the US in May, according to the company.
Kiley told the ABC it was an exciting time to be an Australian artist.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to launch our music streaming platform in Australia and we look forward to working with our Australian partners and fans,” he said.
The Australian government is set to announce its music policy later this month, and music streaming has become a focus of the government.
In August, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced the government would introduce a new policy to restrict the streaming of music and other media by internet service providers.
The change will mean any Australian who streams music through a VPN service or through third-party platforms will be banned from accessing the internet for one year.
The move comes as more Australians are streaming music and media on the internet.
