Can Spotify Stream in the Background?

Spotify, which is Europe’s version of Pandora, might be able to stream music in the background while you use other apps on your phone.  This according a long press release put out by Windows, which I read at Mobiletechworld.  This is a necessary function in my opinion.  If I am listening to music I don’t want to have to turn the music off just to use another app, that is the definition of buzzkill.

Right now only 1st party apps can stream in the background but if spotify can be added to the music hub or get it’s own Live Tile then it should be able to stream in the background while you complete other tasks on your phone.
