Music app gets Android user streaming

Spotify is now available on Android

Those recycling mobile phones for a music-focused device may be interested in one reviewer's latest comments.

Although it is available to download for free, Drew Smith explained in a piece for Android Guys that the Spotify Mobile does come with a £9.99 subscription that may be off-putting for some.

He explained that for handsets that use the Google operating system the streaming audio service - which has already been popular with home computer users - is easy to navigate and use.

"I've found that since signing up for Spotify Premium, I've actually started to listen to more music as when I hear any tunes on the radio or from a friend or see music advertised," Mr Smith added.

However, he concluded that ultimately, Android users will need to balance the quality of the application against the value for money of the subscription fee.

Google-powered devices currently available include the HTC Hero, Samsung Galaxy and T-Mobile Pulse.
