Microsoft had announced in May 2017 at its Surface Laptop launch event in New York City that Spotify will be coming to the Windows Store in the next few weeks. And today the Spotify app for PC has been listed on the Windows Store but earlier it cannot be installed by the users. However, now we can install the app.
Spotify had a Windows Phone app on Windows Store which they had stopped updating almost over a couple of months ago. Spotify is Desktop Bridge (Project Centennial) app which means it has been converted from the existing Win32 app that Spotify provides for the Windows users. It will be a full featured debut of Spotify on the Windows Store because of Microsoft’s Desktop bridge conversion service.
Microsoft launched their Surface Laptop with Windows 10 S which only allows only Windows Store apps for better performance for students. Since then Microsoft has been trying hard to bring various popular services on Windows Store through the desktop bridge. At build 2017 Microsoft has stated there are currently 1,000 Desktop Bridge UWP apps in the Store including popular apps like Evernote, Slack, Musixmatch, Adobe, Audible, Kodi etc.
Microsoft also announced at build 2017 that iTunes would also be coming to the Windows Store. You can download the app on Windows Store here.
