Spotify on Symbian arrives!

Spotify on Symbian S60 is here! We got a sneak peek for Spotify on Nokia blowers a few months back, but now it’s here and ready to download, on an even wider range of phones than we first thought. And yes, that includes Samsung and Sony Ericsson handsets! Read on for the full list.

As of today, you can now download Spotify for Nokia and Symbian phones from It works in just the same way as the Spotify iPhone app, letting you stream and cache songs, and even allows you to play them in the background as the Android Spotify app does.

Spotify on Nokia: Everything you need to know!

As expected, Spotify on Symbian is for premium subscribers only, but the big surprise is just how many handsets, with all sorts of resolutions, are supported. As well as flagship models such as the N97 and 5800 XpressMusic, you can get it on the new E-series phones, and because Symbian S60 is cross platform, even on the Samsung i8910 Omnia HD and Sony Ericsson Satio.

Symbian S60 has a huge install base so Spotify just opened up its app to a huge number of people. We asked the music streaming service if it had plans for Windows Mobile and BlackBerry OS next but were only given the standard response from a spokesperson (“We want to get Spotify on as many mobiles as possible”) so read in to that what you will.

    I’m impressed at the wide support, would have thought screen resolution might have limited it to just a few Nokias. Now if only the E71 had a normal headphone slot…
