BlackBerry Users Treated with Spotify App

Streaming music service provider Spotify has finally rolled out a dedicated app aimed at BlackBerry users with a taste in music.

Spotify has undergone a substantial growth both in terms of revenue, as well as in terms of number of paying subscribers ever since it was launched in the U.S back in July. As of the running month, the service enjoys more than five million active users, out of which 2 million are paying subscribers.

When it comes it to its mobile offerings though, Spotify has failed so far to live up to the expectations. It currently offers apps for Android powered devices as well as for the iOS platform that allow users to synchronize with the playlists they make in their Mac or PC.

The company, until now, did not seem to be enthusiastic enough when it came to offering apps for BlackBerry users. But, with this new offering the door to Spotify has opened for BlackBerry devices running on GSM Networks. The supported device models are 9300 Curve, 9000 Bold, 9700 Bold, Bold 9780 and 8520 Curve reports c|net (opens in new tab). The app is not currently available from BlackBerry App World but can be downloaded from here (opens in new tab).

More devices are expected to join the list in the days to come though. For accessing the application, users must sign up on a premium subscription plan to Spotify.
