Spotify has officially landed in the U.S. The streaming music service that’s very popular in Europe has finally crossed the pond to grace us with its musical presence.

Spotify’s website raves, “The award-winning music service that’s taken Europe by storm has now come to U.S. shores. Millions of tracks ready to play instantly, on your computer and your phone.”

Spotify is a streaming music service that allows users to create playlists and then share music with friends. Spotify’s options include, making playlists, sharing them, searching all the world’s music, mobile music and more.

According to The Washington Post, the free service is only accessible by invitation, but it is expected to open up in the coming weeks. Engadget.com says you can either sign up for an invitation or pay to access Spotify. The service offers monthy subscriptions that include an unlimited plan costing $5 and a Premium plan that costs $10.

The free service reportedly has no time limits as part of its introductory offer, but like its European counterpart, it will eventually only allow users 20 hours of free play per month.

According to Engadget, Logitech announced that it will be offering Spotify service on Squeezbox Touch and Squeezebox Radio.
