October 7th 2008 – Spotify launches in the UK

I’ve been looking through my old blog and found a post I wrote on the day Spotify officially launched in the UK.

Take a look at the desktop interface from then. No Browse, no charts, no playlists even. The way to navigate was via a search box or by choosing genres and decades which then presented albums/songs to you. Still, the experience was groundbreaking at the time and it was obvious to me that it was going to create waves in the industry.

Here’s my original blog post for that day announcing the official launch.
