The Windows Phone version of Spotify offers free music streaming at long last

Several months passed since Spotify for Windows Phone got overhauled and received some handy and incremental features. Today, however, is another pretty important day for all WP fans of the music-streaming service, as it seems that it has finally taken a specific page out of the book of its Android and iOS variations – the popular music streaming service is now free for all those that use it on their WP devices.

Up until now, one had to lay their hands on a premium subscription for Spotify in order to use it on Microsoft's mobile OS, but audiophiles can now stream their songs for free. Android and iOS users of the popular music-streaming app have been able to do this since last December.

There's a catch, however. You can't just play whichever of your songs you desire on Spotify for mobile devices. Regardless of platform and OS, the app only allows you to “Shuffle Play” through your playlists. If this downside does not bother you, you'll be able to listen to your songs in a random order to your heart's content. On the other hand, obtaining a premium subscription allows you to choose which song to listen to at any given moment.
