Spotify, the cool music streaming service finally comes to the Windows Phone.
Here is what Microsoft posted on their UK blog:
Streaming music on Windows Phone was already pretty awesome. However, today it just got a whole lot better.
What a lot of people have been waiting for has finally arrived. Spotify on Windows Phone.
For those of you who don’t know (who are you?), Spotify is the fastest-growing and most successful music service of its kind, giving you on-demand access to millions of songs, streamed straight to your phone (and no need for any buffering). It gives you the ability to create and share playlists from your mobile phone, and sync lists for those times you’re out of range.
In addition to one of the world’s biggest music libraries, Spotify lets you easily import all your existing MP3s so you can play all your music from one place.
Music is best shared
Like Windows Phone, Spotify has people at its heart. Would you rather have a machine tell you what to listen to or would you rather get suggestions from a friend with great taste in music? Whether you’re an indie kid, electro geek or pop music purist, Spotify on Windows Phone helps you get closer to the music you and your friends love to share.
Spotify uses the social power of Windows Phone to help you stay connected to what your friends are listening to. You can share top tracks and artists via Twitter and Facebook and browse your friends’ favourites right there from your phone.
Over 400 million Spotify playlists have been created by people so far. You can find many of these shared at sites like http://www.sharemyplaylists.com and http://www.bbcify.com, as well as uploading your own. Even better, all this is connected right into the Music + Videos Hub and taps into the universal music controls on your Windows Phone, giving you access to millions of tracks right from the heart of your phone.
Starting November 7, Windows Phone users can download Spotify from the Windows Phone Marketplace (available later today on Marketplace)
Over the last few day’s I have been using Spotify’s Premium service, and I have to say I really like it!
Do you use Spotify? What do you think of it?
