Spotify demos Android app currently in development

Spotify, a music streaming service very popular in Europe and the UK, has released a demonstration of an Android app the company is currently developing.

For those who haven't heard of Spotify, it is a multi-platform application which provides access to a free and legal barrage of online music. It's a streaming music player which has a similar feel to iTunes. Through it a user can get links to a large number of albums and tracks. Spotify use a peer-to-peer network along with streaming servers to provide their music. For more information on Spotify itself checkout Neowin's review.

According to TechCrunch the company plans to demonstrate an Android app fully at this weeks Google I/O event. The app itself is a work in progress but as you can see from the video (embedded below) it's functional, fast and addresses concerns that users may not be able to play music offline. The application streams music from Spotify and allows you to sync playlists and music in an offline mode to the device.

Spotify is rumoured to be working on an iPhone version of the application but it's not yet clear when this will be available or even if Apple will approve an application that will directly rival iTunes.
