VIDEO: Spotify application on Google Android
We’ve heard it from head office and we’ve seen it on the iPhone but there’s something very warming about this video of Spotify in action on the Google Android platform. It might be the way they’re using a Mac as the computer while flaunting the non-Apple software on the non-Apple touchscreen smartphone, but then it might just be that the app looks like it’s running pretty damned smooth. See what you think.
We knew the cache potential of Spotify already but I’d be interested to see how many tracks you could have in an off-line playlist before you phone falls over. Loving the instantaneous syncing with laptop and the OTA search looks pretty good too although, let’s face it, that won’t have been a demo over 3G.
Still work in progress, as the man says, and no release dates yet but what do you think on first impressions? Would you pay the premium for Spotify Mobile?

It looks great, but it’s the networks themselves that pose the problem. ‘Fair usage’ bandwidth limitations and streaming banned in the ‘terms of service’ for contract phones really impede my ability to get too psyched about Spotify on the mobile.
Sure ‘there’s Wi-Fi’ but that was never the point of Spotify on this platform. It was the convenience of OTA whilst travelling on things like the bus that got us salivating about this service to begin with, and as it stands I just don’t see how that will work.
