From today, Windows Phone owners can enjoy access to millions of songs across their smartphones for free. Listen to all your playlists, discover new music, or simply sit back and dig into your favourite artist’s entire back catalogue.
Updated for Windows Phone users today – Spotify’s free mobile experience lets you shuffle play:
• All of the music. Listen to all the playlists you’ve created and playlists from the people you follow. Spotify lets you discover new music, save, shuffle and share.
• Your favourite artists. Want to listen to a certain artist? Just hit shuffle play, sit back and listen to their entire catalogue. Don’t settle for something similar. Don’t settle for just one track from the artist you want to hear every 20 minutes.
• Want the right playlist? Just Browse. Going for a jog or to the gym? We’ve got the playlist to help you go the extra mile. Hosting a dinner or getting ready for a big night out? We’ve got you covered. We even have playlists for different moods, so regardless of whether you need an upbeat boost or something more relaxing to wind down to – we’ve got just the thing.
We’re also introducing a series of additional improvements throughout the app. Search results look better than ever before, and we’ve made it easier to browse the artists you love and discover related artists you might grow to love.
“We’re excited to see Spotify made available for free on Windows Phone,” said Steve Guggenheimer, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Corp. “This puts a much-loved listening experience in the hands of Windows Phone fans across the world, and beautifully showcases both our platform and the Spotify service.”
“We’re all about bringing more music to more people,” says Dave Price, Director of Product at Spotify. “Today we’re doing just that by bringing the best free music experience to Windows Phone users across the globe”.
Spotify Premium continues to offer the ultimate listening experience with on-demand, ad-free access to your music in high quality. In addition, you can sync playlists to your phone for use in offline mode. This comes in handy any time that you do not have an Internet connection. Spotify is also available in its ad-supported, free version on all devices.
Spotify is available to Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 users right now, and can be downloaded in the Windows Phone Store.
