Spotify App on iPhone and Android hits Europe
Spotify, the European music-streaming service has secured a deal to launch a mobile offering on iPhone, iPod Touch and Android powered mobile phones, it said on Monday.
The mobile app is now available for premium subscribers in the UK, Sweden, Spain, France and Norway on the three devices, and in Finland for owners of the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Users can use the service for free in exchange for watching advertisements, or a premium fee of 9.99 pounds ($16.37) a month for access to a library of more than six million songs.
“This is a hugely significant day in Spotify’s short history,” Spotify’s Gustav Soderstrom said. “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,” he added.
