switch from Groove Music to Spotify

Spotify is on its way to Windows 10! During yesterday’s MicrosoftEDU presentation, Microsoft’s Panos Panay used Spotify while showcasing the new Surface Laptop, and mentioned that a popular music streaming service is coming to Windows 10.

Even though it wasn’t an official announcement, Panay clearly indicated that the official Spotify app is going to arrive in the Windows Store soon.

We still don’t know much about Spotify for Windows 10. The release date is unknown, and we have no clue if Spotify will have any exclusive features on Windows 10. We only know that Spotify will be well-integrated with Windows 10 S, as Panay used the Surface Dial (also compatible with the Surface laptop and Windows 10 S) to adjust volume within the app.

The only hint we can draw from the presentation is Spotify for Windows 10 could be released at around the same time of the Surface Laptop’s release, but since the Surface Studio is also compatible with the Surface Dial, it doesn’t have to be the case. Once again, we don’t know anything for sure, so it’s best to wait for official news from either Microsoft or Spotify.

It’s a very positive thing for Microsoft that a service with a huge user base, such as Spotify, is interested in developing a Windows 10 app. We all know that big developer names aren’t so crazy about Windows 10 as a platform, and they’re running away from it, rather than investing in Windows 10 versions of their apps.

What do you think about Spotify’s new Windows 10 app? Will you be using it once it gets released? Let us know in the comments!
