Indian music streaming service Dhingana has launched an app for Windows 8 smartphones, as it seeks to broaden its presence across all key mobile platforms.

The Spotify-like streaming service targeted at Indian and Bollywood music fans is already available on the Web, mobile Web and as an app for the iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry and Windows tablets.

The Windows Phone Store app will help users discover new music by recommending more albums or playlists based on what the user is currently listening to. It features genre-specific listings, where users can listen to top songs and featured albums within a chosen genre. The app also lets users share songs and playlists with friends via Facebook, Twitter or email.

“We expect that this launch will only add to the growth of our loyal listenership across the Windows eco-system,” said Swapnil Shinde, the co-founder and COO of Dhingana.
