Soundtrackr also set to offer WP7 app
Microsoft has confirmed that Spotify will soon be available for Windows Phone 7 handsets. The music streaming service, currently limited to European markets, is also being offered as an app for Microsoft's aging smartphones running Windows Mobile 6.
The Windows Phone utility allows users to search, browse and play music from a wide range of sources. Content can be streamed over Wi-Fi or cellular networks, while offline caching can be used to store music for playback without an Internet connection.
Spotify is only accessible for customers in Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, France, Spain, and the UK. Recent reports suggest the company has failed to strike deals with major labels in the US, although the service is expected to eventually arrive. [via CNET]
