Spotify App Lands on Windows Phone 7Posted: December 12, 2011 | Author: flash | Filed under: Adobe, Android, Apps & Games | Tags: W7 | Comments Off
That’s right, Spotify has finally unveiled its new app exclusively for Windows Phone 7 users after making an announcement that it would bring the service to Microsoft’s newest mobile OS more than a year prior now. The new App can be obtained from the Windows Phone Marketplace, it requires a phone 7 device running version 7.5 or higher and a premium Spotify account. It’s very similar to what you would find on Spotify’s other range of
mobile apps, you can search, browse, play music, check out your friends
playlsits, stream music over Wi-Fi or 3g.
You can also save playlists
to you device from offline listening. With Spotify’s latest new Windows
Phone 7 addition Spotify claims it has apps for more mobile devices
than other music service, certainly a bold statement like this would
lend more credence to Spotify over its competitors, unfortunately
statistics suggest otherwise as the large majority of streaming services
are available for IOS, Symbian, WebOS and even the Windows 7 platform.
The list of its competitors that surpass it in this department include
Rhapsody and Pandora among others which have apps available for
Blackberry devices which Spotify does not currently, however Spotify
does have a new app in development which is available for the beta.
Spotify’s new app for Windows Phone 7 comes just in time as Microsoft
recently announced the availability of four new phones running Mango on
AT&T and T-Mobile USA.
The new phones include Samsung’s Focus
Flash and a refreshed Focus S, and HTC’s Titan and Radar 4G.
Microsoft’s latest update to Windows Phone 7 features a variety of
improvements including multitasking, voice commands, a revamped Web
browser and Wi-Fi hotspot mode.
