DIGITAL JUKE BOX Spotify has been configured to work with Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.
The move was announced by the shy, soft-spoken CEO of Microsoft, Steve Ballmer.
According to the Spotify blog, the outfit has been working with the Vole for some months to develop a Spotify app for Windows Phone 7. The software is already out on Windows Mobile 6 and will be running on Windows Phone 7 when that hits the shops,
Spotify on Windows Phone 7 can search, browse and play millions of tracks, stream over WiFi or 2.5/3G, use offline playlists so that you can play your music without an Internet connection, wirelessly sync your local files to your phone as well as create starred tracks.
Windows Phone 7 users can download the new app directly by visiting m.spotify.com, and it will also be available for download on Windows Marketplace for mobile shortly.
Microsoft is trying make its new Windows Phone 7 as "with it" as possible. We'll see. µ
