As announced at Microsoft’s Build event Spotify has arrived in the Windows Store. The app is the desktop app ported using the desktop bridge and is essentially the standard downloadable app packaged for the Store. This is important as Windows 10 S only allows apps to be installed from the Windows Store and over time Microsoft are pushing developers to go down the store route.

While I would prefer to see a true UWP app its at least good to have the option to download the app from the store. I think for now I am sticking with Groove, what about you?
