Hey all,


Do you think we'll see a beta app for Spotify on the Windows 8 Consumer Preview?

I'm running Windows 8 Consumer Preview and it works fine... The only difference I have noticed it duplicated the Windows Media Player Playlist if you had it on there... other then that... it works great.

I have it also. I would like to see an app for metro.

I see that slacker already have a metro app. Are there any plans at all?

Given that we've been asking for an iPad app since the iPad was released in 2009, and we've still not got one... I wouldn't expect a metro app anytime soon, or any plans soon either.


Also I thought metro apps were based in HTML and JavaScript... so it's unlikely that we'll ever get a metro app - since Spotify has previously said (in response to a web app) that they believe they can produce a better quality experience with proper desktop apps.


Maybe they'll surprise us... but I don't think it'll be a priority since the normal desktop app will work fine in Windows 8.

First was the record, then the cassette, the CD, then came along Spotify... that really did change everything!

But what about those that will be using the ARM processor?


Surely they will have to cater for that?

First off:metro apps can be

  • C++ (most used programmer language)
  • BASIC (most used windows programming language)
  • JavaScript an HTML (web language)

Agree, we need a metro version. It could show new releases on the startpage tile etc. They could port the Windows Phone player over to Windows 8.
