Windows Phone App News: Spotify finally arrives

After an eternal wait for users of Microsoft's smartphone OS, the Spotify music streaming system app will finally arrive in the App Marketplace later today. You'll need a Premium subscription to access the app.

Those tentative smartphone fanciers debating an investment in the Windows Phone operating system, now have an extra reason to jump on board, following the arrival of a Spotify app.

The music-streaming service has finally been launched on Microsoft's fledgling OS and will provide a massive boost for new Windows Phone Mango handsets like the eagerly awaited Nokia Lumia 800, which will arrive later this month.

The Spotify app, which has been available for iPhone, Android and even Symbian for what seems like eternity, arrives on Windows Phone boasting a beautifully-designed UI, very much in tune with the look and feel of WP7.

Of course, you'll need to be a subscriber to the Spotify Premium service, which costs £9.99 a month. It'll give you access to over 13m songs, offline playlists and more.

The Spotify app is also available for Palm-based smartphones, meaning that BlackBerry, which recently launched a BBM Music service of its own, is now the only major platform out in the cold.
