Spotify To No Longer Support Windows Phone Devices


The world of technology has been progressing at a really rapid pace of late, and many changes are coming out in recent times. One of the biggest noticeable new age trends has been that of streaming content.

Be it streaming music services or streaming television, the streaming content has been HOT and has had wide scale acceptability. One of the leading names when it comes to streaming music content has been that of Spotify, and the company continues to impress with its features and services.

However, Spotify users who use Windows Phone devices are in for a major disappointment as the company has announced today that they are no longer going to support the Windows Phone OS.

This means that the users who have Spotify app installed on their phones will continue to be able to use the services, but will no longer receive any new updates or upgrades.

The last update that came out for Spotify for Windows Phone devices was in the month of February.

“We can confirm Windows Phone 8.x is no longer supported. You can still use our Spotify application on the associated devices but it will no longer receive any further updates and download the application. We apologize for the inconvenience,” Spotify said.

However, there is still hope that the application will continue its services for the users of the Windows 10 Mobile OS, which has a universal appeal.

Universal apps are the next big thing Microsoft has been focusing on, where the same app interface can work on mobiles, tablets as well as PC.

With regards to Spotify on Windows 10 Mobile OS, Spotify customer support rep Tsvetan commented saying: “Regarding Windows 10, we can’t say at the moment if or when any specific release will be out, but as soon as there is something new, you will receive a notification on your device that an update is available and prompted to download it.”

Microsoft Mobiles has been going through a really rough time in the markets, and the company is working rather dedicated towards developing the markets further in the world of technology.

Users of the Windows Phone devices are getting to experience the best of technologies, and with the departure of Spotify, a major name departs the company. Microsoft is soon expected to mend the bridges with Spotify over the same.
