Windows Phone 8 Finally Gets SpotifyBy: Zach Walton - February 8, 2013
Windows Phone 8 has faced an uphill climb since it launched late last year. One of the many obstacles on its way to greatness was a lack of quality apps, but that’s been slowly changing.
Microsoft announced that popular music streaming service Spotify has finally launched on Windows Phone 8. Just like its apps on other devices, Spotify for Windows 8 will bring a premium music streaming experience to users for $9.99 a month.
Unlike its app for other devices, Spotify has received a noticeable redesign for Windows 8 to fit in with the design theme seen across all Windows 8 products. It now sports a clean design that’s only marred by a putrid yellow background. Here’s hoping you can change the colors.
Spotify is also offering its usual one month of free mobile service for Windows Phone 8 users who want to try it out. You can download the app for free here and start listening to what passes as popular music these days.
