The Epic Games Store is a digital distribution platform, like Steam, where users can purchase digital copies of a wide variety of games. However, unlike Steam, the platform currently only hosts games and users have to rely on other services to purchase various software. But that could change soon as the Epic Games Store is expanding its portfolio, starting with Spotify.
Spotify is now available on the Epic Games Store!

According to a recent tweet from the official Epic Games Store handle, users can now download Spotify on the platform. If you are a fan of the popular music streaming service, you can follow this link to install Spotify on your Windows or macOS device. The Spotify app on the Epic Games Store is free to download, but you’ll have to pay for a premium membership if you want to get full functionality and remove all ads. If you have a current subscription, you will need to log in with the same credentials to enjoy the premium benefits.
Epic Games’ move to offer the Spotify app in its store comes just months after the company teamed up with other big-name developers to form the Coalition for App Fairness (CAF). Spotify is among the founding members of this nonprofit organization, which seeks to push “Enforcement and reforms, including legal and regulatory changes, to preserve consumer choice and a level playing field for app and game developers who rely on the most popular app stores and gatekeeper platforms. “The coalition formed in September of this year, just weeks after Epic Games sued Apple and Google for removing Fortnite from their respective app stores for bypassing app store fees with direct payments.
