iOS 4 Compatible Spotify App Launches

Spotify has launched an update to their Spotify iPhone app that allows you to play music in the background. The update requires iOS 4 if you want to play music in the background while using other apps.

Spotify say that listening to music in the background is the most requested feature and thanks to the release of iOS 4 on the iPhone, it now has made it possible.

Several new features have been added to the application which includes the already mentioned multitasking support (only works on the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 3rd Gen).

Spotify iPhone App Features

* Use the headset remote and lockscreen buttons to control Spotify playback
* ‘What’s new┬Ł tab has been added showing you newly released albums, the top 100 tracks in your country, and the social feed
* Share tracks and albums to your Spotify friends!
* Battery consumption is improved when the app is in the foreground or paused.

It’s a decent update and well worth downloading now if you are a Spotify user on the iPhone.
