Yesterday a report claims that Spotify quietly dropping support for their Windows Phone 8.x app. bu now its seems like that news was “misinformed” (fake). Spotify updated their Windows Phone app to version 5.2 this update comes with a note to Bug fixed and improved Stability.
The previous “misinformed” statement from Spotify was :-
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.
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
But Spotify give a quick reply to clear this error and said :-
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.
They also said if you’re interested in a Universal Windows App for Spotify you can show your support from here.
As Spotify is one of the biggest Music streaming service, so pulling their app from Windows Phone would have been another negative point towards Microsoft’s Windows Phone OS. But we’re now very glad to here that Spotify still supporting there app and give a quick update to erase the error created by a misinformation.
