INQ Mobile is also believed to be working on developing a Facebook-branded mobile phone which expected to launch during the first half of 2011. Frank Meehan, chief executive of INQ Mobile, told that his company’s goal was to deeply integrate Spotify’s services into its upcoming mobile phones, which would enable you to search as well as play tracks straight from the massive catalogue via a Wi-Fi or 3G connection, where subscribers can also download a 3,333 songs directly onto their mobile devices.
Spotify’s Launches Mobile Application: Last week, Spotify launched a mobile application on Microsoft’s Windows phone 6 platform. The music streaming service, which has already launched a dedicated mobile phone application on the iPhone, Android and Symbian platforms respectively, has now made its premium mobile service available to those consumers with a Windows phone.
Music Streaming Service: Only those Spotify users who pay a subscription fee of £9.99 a month, can access their music library on the move. The Windows version of the mobile application allows Spotify subscribers to stream their songs over WiFi or 3G and rewind, fast-forward, pause, skip and shuffle their music collection. Consumers can also be able to multi-task, which means they can continue to run Spotify in the background, while texting or making calls.
Download and Play in Offline Mode: Spotify playlists can be downloaded and played in offline mode when there is no internet connection and the app allows users to sync ‘on-the-fly’, which means that every track that is added to a playlist, appears instantly on both a user’s computer and mobile.
