Spotify is Now Available For Windows 8 Phones

Spotify, the popular social music streaming app, has launched an app for Windows 8 phones.

Here is more from the Windows 8 blog: “Spotify, which is being released as a beta, instantly increases the size of your music library by millions of tracks, making it easy to discover new songs and artists. You can create your own playlists, or browse and indulge in the ones your friends put together. Going off the grid? The app also lets you download and enjoy your playlists without an Internet connection. Tracks you add to any playlist are also simultaneously available on your phone and PC.”

Windows 8 phone owners can download the app for free. Like on the iPhone app and Android app, Windows 8 users can have a 48 hour free trial of the premium streaming service. After that, the cost is $9.99 a month.
