Spotify is now available for Windows Phone. Like other subscription music services, Spotify gives you on-demand access to millions of songs. But the service, which costs $9.99 a month, also lets you share your music on Facebook, Twitter, and Windows Messenger—and do some other cool things on Windows Phone:
- Browse and play your friends' Spotify top tracks, artists , and playlists (I was surprised to see how many of my Facebook friends were on Spotify and even more surprising to see what they're rockin').
- Pin your playlists as Live Tiles to your Start screen for fast access (something I've done numerous times with the Bluetooth stereo connection in my car).
- Play music in the background while running other apps or when your phone is locked.
- Pause, play, or change tracks when your phone is locked.
