Spotify has never been one of the strong supporters of the Windows ecosystem. Their Windows Phone app is nothing short of a disappointment and their Windows app is equally bad. But that could change soon.

According to an app review response from Spotify, it looks like they are ramping up their investment in Windows 10. Their Windows 10 app though not being a true UWP app, still supports Live Tile and Cortana integration. The app is only available on Windows 10 PCs, with Mobile still having the pathetic old app and Xbox having a completely different app.

With Microsoft killing off Groove Music, Spotify has taken to further honing their apps on Windows 10. Seldom do App developers respond to app review, and when they do, it’s generally something generic. Spotify’s response, however, shows that they are really devoted. They promise that they’ll continue developing the apps as we speculated, and will maintain the current apps.

With the good news being done, let’s come to the bad news. The Windows Phone app, it seems, has reached end of development. There’s no true UWP planned for all Windows 10 devices so Mobile is left out again. If music streaming is really important for you, Windows Phone is no longer a good choice.

    What do you mean by “really devoted”? It’s Windows, not Windows Mobile, it’s the OS of choice for the majority of users out there. Ignoring it is out of the question. Their app isn’t anything complicated either, just an interface to playlists and not much else after they’d taken messaging and lyrics away.

    Seriously, how can Microsoft push us to migrate from Groove to spotify and not ensure the Windows Mobile App is still working ? Even not expecting to be a very good App, just an App where we can keep our playlists.
