Spotify confirms it has ended support for its Windows Phone app

The popular streaming music service Spotify has ended support for its Windows Phone version. The company has confirmed to one of its customers that the current app will no longer be updated.

Spotify launched a Windows Phone 7 version of its app in 2011 and a Windows Phone 8.x version was launched in 2013. Twitter user Alessandro S posted a support email he received from Spotify on the future of the Windows Phone version.

"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."

The app is still available in the Windows Store and it will also work on Windows 10 Mobile. Spotify would not comment on if will release a native app for Windows 10 for PC Mobile, saying only, "as there is something new, you will receive a notification on your device that an update is available and prompted to download it."

Thanks again to Alessandro S for the tip!
