Ever since Spotify debuted in the U.S. back in the summer of 2011, it’s been slowly taking over every platform it can think of by publishing its app on anything and everything with a connection to the Internet. Up until now, Windows Phone 8 owners have been left out in the dark as Spotify published an iOS and Android version of its application, to then move on to set-top-boxes and media streamers. The company has gone back to developing its application to mobile as Windows Phone 8 users are now able to download Spotify on their devices.
Spotify subscribers can download the Windows Phone 8 application immediately to start listening to their tunes on their mobile platform of choice, while non-subscribers can use the service for free for their first 30 days. Once those 30 days are up, you’ll need to cough up $9.99 a month for Spotify’s premium service.
Unfortunately, it looks as though the Radio feature has yet to make it into the Windows Phone 8 application. If you’ve been using that feature on other Spotify applications, don’t expect it to be on your Windows Phone 8 device with today’s release.
