Spotify Drops Windows Phone Support–What It Means To Lumia, Surface Phone Users

The music streaming service Spotify has ended support for Windows Phone version of its app. The app which was last updated in February 2015 won’t receive any further updates, improvements or fixes according to the company. Users, however, still can download the older version of the app from the Windows Store.

“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.”

When asked about a Windows 10 app, the company stated: “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.”

The news is quite disappointing for Lumia phone users and shatters the expectations of eager fans of the yet to be released Surface phone as Microsoft continues to lose apps for its Windows Phone Store.

Others though believe that Spotify is instead looking to focus on a Windows 10 universal app, which the music app is planning to build and release later this year.

Microsoft Windows 10 Universal Application Platform will allow a single app to be developed that would work across all platforms including phones, tablets, PCs and even on the gaming console Xbox One.

The company is already suffering from lack of apps as the as top applications currently available on rival platforms of Android and iOS are missing from their Store. The best examples are Snapchat and Google’s apps, which exist in both iOS and Android but are nowhere to be seen on Windows Phone.

Additionally Microsoft dashed the hopes of users of Windows Lumia phones to gain a respectable catalog of apps, after announcing the killing of its Project Astoria, the bridge to bring Android apps to Windows platform.

The future of the Microsoft Windows Phone platform ,hence, remains bleak for lack of apps and its success with mainstream mobile users is quite limited. But given the exclusive nature of Microsoft Surface line of tablets, it is likely that the marketing of Surface phone won’t suffer as it is poised to target business users with productivity apps instead of social and gaming apps.

There, however, is no official confirmation about the Surface Phone flagship line, with rumors that Microsoft may even end its smartphone business altogether as it continues to suffer losses in Mobile division.
