Spotify is huge in Europe. The online music site offers users the ability to listen to millions of songs on their computers or smartphones. Spotify has been working on bringing the service to the US, and now Bloomberg reports that Spotify could be available in the States by the third quarter of this year.

In Europe users pay about $15/month to use Spotify. It’s not clear how much a US subscription would cost, but that’s likely going to depend on Spotify’s negotiations with internet service providers and US record labels.

Spotify offers Symbian, Android, and iPhone clients, and according to Bloomberg the company is talking to Palm and Research In Motion about developing WebOS and BlackBerry software as well.

Grooveshark, Rhapsody, MOG, and several other companies already offer streaming music services for US smartphone users.
