Three apps will be available regionally:

  • Tunigo in Sweden
  • Gaffa in Denmark
  • Dagbladet in Norway

Soon the Spotify Platform will be available as a preview by going to this link on Spotify's site. But you can learn more by going to this app section on the site.

Clearly Spotify wants to be the place to go for everything that has to do with music. Incorporating third party apps that can contribute to the music experience certainly is a great place to start.

We will let you know how it goes when we get our hands on those apps.
