Spotify winds up support for Windows app

Spotify, a digital music service that gives users access to millions of songs is dropping support for its Windows Phone app.

The company updated its Windows Phone app back in February 2015, and they won’t be releasing any further updates for their Windows Phone app.

‘’Our main goal at Spotify is to offer the best music experience on the market, covering all platforms. To clarify our recent information regarding the Windows Phone experience, we will continue supporting the Windows Phone 8.1 experience moving forward and we are actually improving our support for Windows 10 in our coming update 5.2, which will be available starting today” Spotify says.

Spotify however said that users can continue to use the app but it will probably lack quite a lot of features which they introduced in the recent months.

“We can confirm Windows Phone 8.1 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.”

About a Windows 10 app, the company simply hints that, “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.”

Hopefully, Spotify will release a Windows 10 app in the near future. In the meantime, the alternative to that should be Groove Music which offers some apps for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.
