Spotify your music on Windows Phone

Spotify is launching today for Windows Phone. Like other subscription music services, Spotify gives you on-demand access to millions of songs. But the service, which costs $9.99 a month, also lets you share your music on Facebook, Twitter, and Windows Messenger—and do some other cool things on Windows Phone:

  • Browse and play your friends’ Spotify top tracks, artists , and playlists (I was surprised to see how many of my Facebook friends were on Spotify and even more surprising to see what they’re rockin’).
  • Pin your playlists as Live Tiles to your Start screen for fast access (something I’ve done numerous times with the Bluetooth stereo connection in my car).
  • Play music in the background while running other apps or when your phone is locked.
  • Pause, play, or change tracks when your phone is locked with universal controls

You will be able to download the Spotify app from the Marketplace later today.  In the interim, check out this video I made showing some of the Windows Phone highlights.

    I cant get it because I dont have the update yet for my focus v1.4... and tell them to stop saying that all the phones have the update....I'm really getting mad now I'm ready to go get the iPhone!

  • Ive been using it for free. What do y'all want us to pay $9.99 for, Zune or Spotify? I cant afford both man!

    Will this work on the v1.4 Samsung Focus?

  • @Saijo George: Spotify is now available as a Windows Phone app in the nine countries where Spotify is currently available: USA, UK, Sweden, Finland, Norway, France, The Netherlands, Denmark and Spain.

  • Spotify is available for download in the Windows Phone Marketplace: www.windowsphone.com/.../ca8d6603-a9ae-4a05-8643-baad091ecdd1

  • "Spotify is launching today for Windows Phone."

    Can you be more specific?  Is there a particular calendar we should be checking?  Will worm holes play a factor in determining what is "today"?  Is it "launching today" as in nodo was "available soon"?

  • I would assume it will be launched in app supported countries

    Sweden, Norway, Finland, the UK, the US, France, Spain and the Netherlands

  • Will this be available world wide or for the United States only? Considering it's a Swedish company, I would be really pissed if they decided to ignore us over here.
