Update: New reports say Spotify will officially launch in the US on Thursday, July 14 at 8 a.m. EDT! If you had signed up for an invite on Spotify's website, chances are high you may receive access to the American beta test of the service.
We've been waiting with headphones ready for the US launch of cloud-based music streaming app Spotify. Sweden-based Spotify updated its website today to announce its impending US arrival. With the tagline "Any track, any time, anywhere. And it's free!" This just may be the music solution we've been waiting for. Search for a favorite song and actually listen to the track in full at that moment.
Currently only available in European markets, Spotify allows users to stream music of their choice while connected to the Internet and save songs on a mobile device or computer to listen to while offline. Similar to other streaming services, Spotify offers a free version with the occasional ad or premium options with a paid subscription. Details on the US launch date are still murky, but, of course, there are other online music services to keep your head bopping in the meantime.
