Anghami for Windows Phone lets the MENA regions enjoy popular tunes

Music streaming services like Spotify aren't available worldwide. While millions of consumers can tap into huge collections of music tracks for a monthly fee, there are some regions that aren't covered by the popular companies. This is where services like Anghami ( come into play, which supports the Middle East and North African regions (MENA).

Today, we're looking at the official Windows Phone app, which has just launched on the store.

For those who aren't familiar with Anghami, the music streaming service boasts 3 million Arabic and international songs for you to enjoy when on the move with your Windows Phone. Should you reside in MENA countries, you'll be able to download the official Windows Phone app, search through songs and enjoy some absolute gems either with a portable speaker or your favourite headphones.

The official Windows Phone client acts much like other solutions from competitors in that regard. You're able to enjoy music from the likes of Fairouz and Rihanna, downloading said tracks over Wi-Fi to then listen without relying on a mobile data connection - perfect for those who slap on the headphones when travelling. Playlists can be curated to include all your favourite tracks for different moods and times.

Each track is available in great quality, which matches the gorgeous interface on offer for consumers. Whether you enjoy tuning into your favourite playlists while in the car, on the train or even when running, Anghami for Windows Phone is a sweet solution for downloading and enjoying digital music.

You can download Anghami from the Windows Phone Store. It's worth noting that this app is region restricted and works on Windows Phone 8 only. While it's free to stream, a premium subscription for unlimited downloads will set you back $4.99 a month. Thanks to everyone who tipped us!

  • Good to see this app in wp8 platform...always the official apps are welcome
  • Couldn't agree more. Especially for regions who have felt somewhat neglected in the past.
  • I waited for this app for a long time and I would like the Anghami tram to publish this app lag-free and bug-free.
  • Finally!
  • Thanks for supporting ME region
  • Omg finally, I was so jealous of my brother that he got this app on his xperia phone!
    Thanks for the tip!

  • yummy and I thought this was  a Music app! Didn't realise they got their kit off. Downloading...    
  • Great, I actually enjoy Nokia Music for Arabic music as well, but that's great news for people in countries where Nokia Mixradio isn't available.
  • BTW MENA is short for Middle East North Africa ie; Arabs :)
  • He made it clear in the article :)
  • This is actually a must have app in the Middle East. This will be huge for the platform over there as most BlackBerry users are transitioning to iPhone.
  • Great addition for streaming music on WP8 :)
  • Um can I download Justin Bieber? Yes that was a joke!
  • But a could and smart move for those not only outside the US but those here who don't listen to top 40 music, or so called American music....i used to work in many restaurants and everytime I went into the kitchens, sorry not trying to stereotype, just the way it is alot of times and they are great cooks and workers too!!!! I always heard Mexican or middle eastern music and I wanted to put an ice pick to my eyes lol, but they felt the same way about my music! Good to see they have choices too now!
