Sad news for Bollywood fans as numerous songs have been taken off music streaming app Spotify. The app announced that it's not been able to reach an agreement with the owners of the tracks after the old one expired.

The audio streaming and media service has reportedly failed to reach an agreement with the owners of a number of Bollywood tracks after the old one expired. Several well-known songs, including "Malhari" from Bajirao Mastani and "Kala Chashma" from Baar Baar Dekho, have reportedly been taken off from the site, according to media reports.

Spotify stated on its website that it doesn't offer access to all of the world's music and podcasts. "It enters into licence agreements with publishers and rights holders, just like any other streaming service, to make use of their tunes," it stated.

Taking to Twitter, many users reacted to the news. Here's how they reacted:

Spotify said it would continue "good faith" attempts to find a "creative solution" with Zee Music - part of one of India's biggest entertainment companies.

In order to encourage users to browse around the app, Spotify added a new feed earlier this month as part of its greatest overhaul to date. This feed takes inspiration from TikTok and YouTube. The modifications coincide with Spotify's growing shift away from the classic song and album collections it began with and towards new categories of content like podcasts.
