Following other tech giants like Meta, Amazon and Microsoft, Swedish audio streaming and media services provider Spotify is also planning to lay off people and it may start as soon as this week, a report by Bloomberg said. The number of people to be laid off is, however, not specified.
This comes as most of the tech giants have been announcing massive job cuts to lower costs. On Friday, Google's parent Alphabet said that it would lay off 12,000 employees.
In October, Spotify laid off 38 people from its Gimlet Media and Parcast podcast studios. It has a total of 9,800 employees worldwide.
