Spotify has enabled its free music streaming feature to Windows Phone users. Available for Android and iOS users since December 2013, the feature allowed users with a free subscription to access existing playlists on their devices through the Shuffle Play option.
Previously, only premium subscribers were able to stream music via the Windows Phone app. With today's update, free users can also stream content from their playlists. In addition, Spotify has tweaked presentation of search results and made discovering new artists easier. Here's a look at some of the highlights in the update:
- All of the music. Listen to all the playlists you've created and playlists from the people you follow. Spotify lets you discover new music, save, shuffle and share.
- Your favourite artists. Want to listen to a certain artist? Just hit shuffle play, sit back and listen to their entire catalogue. Don't settle for something similar. Don't settle for just one track from the artist you want to hear every 20 minutes.
- Want the right playlist? Just Browse. Going for a jog or to the gym? We've got the playlist to help you go the extra mile. Hosting a dinner or getting ready for a big night out? We've got you covered. We even have playlists for different moods, so regardless of whether you need an upbeat boost or something more relaxing to wind down to – we've got just the thing.
