Hey, the new version of Spotify support Windows 8 completely. I think the version is 0.8.5 and this is already available, so you receive an update soon.

Dancecore streaming everywhere with unlimited 2M/2M mobile 3G network.

I think the new version isn't made for Windows 8 but it could work better since the older had issues. Surely a Metro App is coming at somepoint. No ETA to my knowledge.

Last time Windows 8 Full support was said to be released when the WIndows 8 starts to come with OEM / with the computers and not only for MSDN subscribers or such.

I'd say try the new version out if it works...

Surely this is just me and my legendary 2 cents :)

PS. I don't work for Spotify.

Thanks. I'm using 0.8.4 so I just have to wait I guess (haven't found a 'check for updates' button in spotify yet)

There is a 0.85 link circulating here somewhere.

It works just fine, but runs on the desktop, and thus not as a tile. A tad annoying, but W8 is 2 days old at this point :P

Would love to see them hook into windows 8 like the (microsoft) music app does (control via the popup that you see when you change volume).

 

Does not even have to be a metro app, just some more usability :)

Maybe I'm just cursed or something, but I was running 0.5.2 which would run fine for about five minutes, then freeze and crash, but Spotify.exe would run in the background and the only way to kill it and try again was to reboot.

 

Upon finding this thread, I downloaded 0.8.5, removed old version, installed new version, same exact problem. Like, no different from before at all. What gives?
