Spotify Android app updated with bundle of new features

Some good news for you from Spotify today: the new version of its app for Android has been released, with support for version 2.0 of the OS -- aka Eclair -- and other new features

Greetings, Androids. Some good news for you from Spotify today: the new version of its app for Android has been released, with additional support for version 2.0 of the OS (aka Eclair), which means it'll work on the snazzy Motorola Milestone, or Droid as it's known in the States.

It'll add a feature previously available on the iPhone version, which lets you skip through tracks in your playlist by swiping cover art to the left or right. There's also a new homescreen widget that lets you play, pause and skip tracks without having to fire up the main Spotify application.

For sharing, you can now copy the URI links to Spotify songs for sharing on social network sites such as Facebook, Twitter or even via SMS and MMS. These are the links that fire up the Spotify app to start playing whichever song you've shared on a friend's computer or phone.

The update is free and available now. To get it, visit the Android Marketplace and search for Spotify, or visit m.spotify.com in your phone's Web browser and install it manually.
