Music-loving Android users, get happy: the new edition of Spotify for Android devices has been officially launched on the Google Play store. Huzzah!

The app, which has been available in beta form for a few weeks now (you can read our impressions of it here), is a large scale revamp of Spotify. There’s full support for Android 4.0 (although it’ll work just fine with older versions of Android, it makes full use of the Ice Cream Sandwich design theme), new navigation and a widget that lets you control it from your home screen. The overall speed has been boosted, too.

Spotify has also stuffed in gapless playback, Last.fm scrobbling, a play queue (just like the desktop Spotify app) and “extreme” 320kbps sound quality as an option.

The app itself is free, but you’ll of course need a Spotify Premium account to actually use it (beyond a 48-hour free trial). You can download it here at Google Play: Spotify for Android. Now, if only Spotify would update that once gorgeous Windows Phone app.
