Spotify finally goes free on Windows Phone

It has been a long time coming, but Windows Phone users are finally able to stream Spotify music for free.

Until now, those using Microsoft’s mobile OS could only stream Spotify on their handsets by signing up for a premium subscription. But through a new update to the app, users can simply hit “Shuffle Play” and enjoy music without any payment.

Steve Guggenheimer, Corporate Vice President at Microsoft commented:

We're excited to see Spotify made available for free on Windows Phone. This puts a much-loved listening experience in the hands of Windows Phone fans across the world, and beautifully showcases both our platform and the Spotify service.

The free version of Spotify first became available on iOS and Android back in December 2013, so it has taken a while to arrive on Windows Phone. You can grab the updated app by tapping on this link on your Windows Phone.
