Spotify Comes to the iPod

Spotify is in the process of rolling out a new service to regular iPod users. This includes those with an iPod classic, iPod nano and iPod shuffle which will see each of the devices capable of being connected up to the Spotify app on the PC or Mac. Once connected with the regular 30 pin connector, the iPod will show up in a new Devices section.

With that connection, you can now sync across to your iPod any tracks that you own. You also have the ability to download tracks or/and complete playlists that you have saved. The pricing drops to as low as 50p per track in the UK depending on how many MP3’s you purchase.

Spotify has also launched the following:

Spotify Mobile app now available to all! iPod integration was your biggest request, but there are also a lot of Spotify Free users out there who are iPhone and Android phone owners. You asked for the ability to buy your MP3 playlists and sync to your phones. So we’ve got you covered too…

As of today, everyone can download the Spotify Mobile iPhone & Android apps to wirelessly sync your MP3 playlists in Spotify from your computer to your phone. Fire up your mobile app and see your phone appear in the ‘Devices’ section of the Spotify sidebar, ready to rock and roll. No cables required! And did we mention it’s now possible to wirelessly sync these playlists to your iPod touch?
