Spotify debuts on Windows Phone

We’ve been steadily working to add more devices to Spotify Mobile and we have an excellent addition to the family to let you know about. Earlier today our CEO Daniel took part in an event at Stockholm’s Royal Institute of Technology along with Steve Ballmer of Microsoft to announce that Spotify is now available for Windows phones 6.x!

Over the past few months we’ve been working with Microsoft to develop the Spotify app for Windows Phone and we’ve put together a demo video for you highlighting some of the great features, have a look.

The full list of features for Windows Phone includes:
· Search, browse and play millions of tracks
· Stream over WiFi or 2.5/3G – All your existing playlists are available
· Offline playlists – Play your music without an internet connection
· On-the-fly sync – Every track you add to a playlist appears on mobile and computer
· What’s New tab
· Wirelessly sync your local files to your phone
· Starred tracks – tag all your favourites into a special list

Windows Phone users can download the new app directly by visiting, and it will also be available for download on Windows Marketplace for mobile shortly.

And one last thing – we’re also very excited to announce that Spotify will be available on the upcoming Windows Phone 7, which from what we’ve seen is going to be just fantastic.


  1. Have just purchased HTC HD7 and it rocks.. just need Spotify for it or else will need to take advantage of a Zune Pass… come on Spotify.

  2. Anothter vote for a WP7 application from a premium subscriber with a WP7 Phone.
    Windows phone 7 works really well and is replacing Windows Mobile 6 the comming year. No more new WM6.5 phones.

  3. I successfully installed Spotify on my HTC Touch Diamond2, even though it’s not officially supported. It works well, but the volume keeps resetting down to about 10%. This is incredibly annoying! I would really appreciate if you fixed this bug.

  4. Come on, you and Microsoft told us that we’d have the spotify for WP7 on launch, its been over 2 months! Dont make me purchase a zune pass.

  5. Here is the answer I got from spotify support:

    “Hi! Thank you for your e-mail! Unfortunately, I can not say when the Windows Phone 7 client will be released. Keep an eye on our blog for all future platform and feature releases. Best,Felix–Spotify support team”

  6. One of the reasons I got WP7, read it would have Spotify app. saw that was in OCT thought should be out by now, how i was wrong. You can have my money Spotify… when you get that app out not a day earlier 😛 please hurry 🙂

  7. Been trying out my 14-day Zune Pass trial on my new WP7, but am really hoping the Spotify app is available as soon as the trial ends. Wishful thinking? Spotify, you have 13 days 😛

  8. So the wp7 client was announced over 6 months ago now.. And still nothing, not even any information on what the delay is? Come on guys, put us out of our misery..

  9. Oink!
    Windwos Phone is not Windows Mobile… Epic Fail No. 1! 😉
    Wrong ad in the Spotify Player… Epic Fail No. 2!

    No Version for the Windows Phone, still waiting and hoping!

  10. Dear Team-Spotify, to add to the long list of eager WP7-Spotify-hopefuls, can you shed some light onto; any indication whatsoever; when we can expect this to come out? pretty, pretty please? I am considering to cancel my premium subscription and wait until it’s out. Thank you!

  11. Hey Spotify,

    The Windows Phone 7 is out for about half a year now and still no Spotify client for WP7? I assume Spotify rates itself as a major service? The why still no client?

  12. Has development on a WP7 client been cancelled? Apparently you have developers working on the fruity iOS client instead, so making the announcement 6 months ago that Spotify will be available on WP7 makes one wonder…

  13. Knock, knock: Spotify, can you update the status on WP 7? Just a status would be nice (however Spotify on WP 7 would of course be nicer).

  14. @irishreid thanks for the link. Great to finally see the app working and coming in the future.

    @Spotify I’ve been getting majorly annoyed with the Spotify Audio ads stating that the app was already available, when it’s not. Anyway, well done on getting there eventually, but next time don’t go silent on us for 6 months!
