What's This?

Times are tough; technology is evolving through innovations associated with it. Some are currently happy with their brands who continue to update and/or upgrade their apps and services. But now, some some sad news for Windows phone users. This past weekend, there has been confirmation that Spotify has indeed ended support for its Windows phone app.


The popular music streaming service has also said that it will no longer update the current app that users have right now. According to MSPoweruser, the Spotify app for Windows was last updated in February 2015. Users can still continue to use the said app, however, it might prove to lack a lot of features particularly those that the streaming music service has released the past few months.

On a tweet that was posted by user Alessandro S, who the music streaming has confirmed the news to, the music service said that they confirm that the Windows Phone 8.x is no longer supported. Users can still use the music service’s app “on the associated devices but it will no longer receive any further updates and download the application.” The company has also apologized for the inconvenience.

The company also says that as soon as there is something new, users will be receiving a notification on their devices that an update is available and they will then be prompted to download it. TheWindows 7 phone version of the popular music service was launched by the company in 2011 followed by a Windows 8.x version that was launched in 2013 reports Windows Central. The app is still currently available via the Windows Store and works fine with Windows 10 Mobile devices.
