Spotify UK invite only due to iPhone demand

Spotify this afternoon announced that UK users will once again only be able to sign up on an invite basis due to the new demand from iPhone users for the music streaming service. (hat tip to @andygirvan for spotting the blog post originally)

The iPhone app went live a few days ago, and has since been made available for Android users too.

The change will not affect premium or free users, but those now wishing to sign up to the service will require a friend to lend them an invite (ask and i’ve got a few knocking around).

For now though, you’ll have to sign up to the waiting list and hope for an email.

We’ll be watching for Spotify’s next step – will they beat iTunes to get The Beatles back catalogue for example – and which direction they will take next. It’s a service I fnid invaluable and I hope that this temporary shift will enable the Swedish startup to perfect their service in the long run.
