Sometimes the Windows Phone platform gets forgotten or otherwise overlooked by developers. Such has been the case with Spotify, which has been serving up free tunes to Android and iOS users for some time now, but hadn't extended the same courtesy to Windows Phone. Well, that changes today -- Spotify has finally brought the free mobile music experience to Windows Phone users around the globe.
"From today, Windows Phone owners can enjoy access to millions of songs across their smartphones for free," Spotify announced in a blog post. "Listen to all your playlists, discover new music, or simply sit back and dig into your favorite artist's entire back catalog."
The Spotify app for Windows Phone now lets WP users stream all the playlists they've created along with playlists of people they follow without ponying up for a paid subscription (albeit only in shuffle mode). They can also discover new music, save, re-shuffle, and share.
In addition, Spotify introduced a series of improvements throughout the app, such as making search results look better and making it easier to browse artists.
You can download the Spotify app for Windows Phone 8/8.1 at the Windows Phone store.
