Microsoft has confirmed that music fans will be able to get a Spofity app on Windows Phone 7 when the new operating system becomes available.
“Spotify is a great example of software innovation emanating from Sweden and Europe”, says Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft. “We’re very glad to work in collaboration with Spotify to deliver a high quality, outstanding consumer experience on the Windows platform with Windows 7 and Windows Phone”.
With Spotify on the start screen or in the music hub, you'll get a different music experience in a mobile phone, with instant access to the music you love, says Microsoft.
”We believe in a world where music fans can listen to whatever they want, whenever and wherever they want it. A world where people can listen to and share music instantly, simply and in fantastic quality”, says Daniel Ek, CEO and founder Spotify. “We’re delighted to be working together with Microsoft to bring the Spotify experience to Windows Phone”.
However, before you get excited thinking that the service will be pushed out on day one, think again; Spotify is being guarded as to the actual date that the new app will be available.
"Windows Phone 7 is an upcoming platform that has not yet launched. Spotify will start building the app, but we have no news today as of when the Spotify app for Windows Phone 7 will be available", it said.
Spotify has, however, confirmed that those still on Windows Mobile will also be able to get some of the music love.
All current users of the platform will be able to download the music streaming service on their phones.
