Microsoft has put a huge amount of effort, money, time, and resources into pumping up the Windows Phone Store. And there's no question as to why. Apple and Google both enjoy remarkably robust app marketplaces, and in the war of ecosystems, having an enviable app store goes a long way to attracting new users. Now, Windows Phone has yet another flagship app in its pocket: Spotify. What has become the most talked-about music streaming app in the U.S. now has a home on Windows Phone 8, and we'd guess that it'll surpass Microsoft's own music app in a short period of time.

The initial release is just a beta, but it'll still let users create their own playlists, discover new artists, and enjoy offline playback for paying users. Tracks you add to any playlist are also simultaneously available on your phone and PC.  

The app is free and so is the service for the first 30 days. After the trial expires, the premium service costs $9.99 a month. So, you in?

TL;DR: Win Phone finally gets app already available on every other platform on the planet.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
