Spotify, the digital music service, is delighted to announce the

available only on the desktop, wherever they go.

Key features include:

  • Access to millions of tracks with Spotify’s constantly
    updated catalogue
  • Continue to run Spotify in the background while making calls,
    browsing the web etc
  • Search and stream music instantly. Browse by artist, title or album
  • Create and synchronise playlists. Updates from the desktop
    application will be synced instantly and vice versa
  • Playlists can be downloaded and played in offline mode when you
    have no connection, are on a plane or subway, or abroad and subject to
    roaming data fees
  • Listen to tracks and albums in their entirety. Rewind,
    fast-forward, pause, skip and shuffle
  • View cover art for all tracks and albums

The mobile service has been made available exclusively to Spotify
Premium members in the majority of our launch countries including the
UK, Sweden, Spain, France and Norway. Spotify is not yet available on
Android Market in Finland.

“This is a hugely significant day in Spotify’s short history,” said
Gustav Söderström, director of portable solutions at Spotify. “Since
our launch last October, we’ve worked hard to provide our users with a
high quality service that gives them access to whatever music they
want, whenever they want it.

“As of today our users can access that music wherever they want,
providing them with the best of both the online and offline worlds.
We’ve now made it even easier to listen to all the world’s music,
anywhere on the planet.”

To sign up to the mobile service, music fans should visit the Spotify
Premium
product page to purchase a monthly or annual subscription.
