Spotify Makes an Early Appearance in the Windows Store

UPDATE: The Spotify Music app for Windows 10 is now available for download from the Windows Store.

We learned last month that Spotify would bring its app to the Windows Store sometime this year. And while that still hasn’t happened yet, they’ve made a step in the right direction. And you can now view the Store listing for the Spotify Music app online.

What you can’t do, at least not yet, is install the app. Which, as you may know, is just the standard desktop application wrapped in a Desktop Bridge container.

Here’s the official description:

Love music? Play your favorite songs and albums free on Windows 10 with Spotify.

Stream the tracks you love instantly, browse the charts or fire up readymade playlists in every genre and mood. Radio plays you great song after great song, based on your music taste. Discover new music too, with awesome playlists built just for you.

Stream Spotify free, with occasional ads, or go Premium.

There’s no word on the public release, but I’d guess it will be pretty soon.
