Add the Epic Games Store to the list of places where you can download Spotify. The streaming giant has released the desktop version of its app to Epic’s Digital Marketplace, giving you another way to get the software if you don’t want to go through the company’s website or the Microsoft Store. For now, at least, there isn’t any special feature to be found in this version of Spotify.

But it is nevertheless an important version. Spotify’s inclusion on the Epic Games Store suggests that Epic plans to offer more than just games through its digital storefront.

Not only are they two of the most vocal critics of Apple’s App Store policies, they are also founding members of Ranking for application fairness. This is the group that is trying to pressure Apple (and Google) to cut their development commissions. Is a Fortnite crossover in their future? We can’t say for sure, but we don’t think this will be the last time Spotify and Epic will work together.
