Online music service Spotify has launched a Windows Phone app which supports mobile devices running Windows Phone 6.0 through Windows Phone 6.5. A new version for Windows Phone 7 devices is expected soon as well.

The Spotify app for Windows Phone will let users stream millions of tracks from the Spotify web service. You can stream music over WiFI or a mobile broadband connection, and you can also cache songs to your device for playback when you’re offline.

The mobile app lets you browse or search for tracks. You can star songs to add to your favorites list, and wirelessly synchronize files between your phone and computer. When you create a playlist on a computer it will also show up on your phone, and vice versa.

Spotify is available in a number of Europena countries including France, Spain, and the UK. It’s not yet available in the US. The basic service is available for free, but you’ll have to sign up for a premium account to use the mobile app (you also don’t have to put up with ads if you go premium).

Spotify also offers apps for iOS, Android, and Symbian.

You can check out Spotify’s Windows Mobile demo video after the break.
