Spotify have proven to be a company that does not respect their customers. maybe they have a new genius manager who smoke a lot of mary jane and one morning woke up with the brilliant idea to **bleep** everything and then asked for promotion
The Samsung TV app the Roku app, and the Amazon Fire Stick app are gone. Something is really wrong. this doesn't make any sense. Spotify would not be willing to loose so many premium customers. That is a lot of money. Something is wrong.
I took a little bit of the money I got back from the TV dealership after complaining about apps disappearing, and spent it on a Google Chromecast.
The Chromecast supports Spotify so I am yet again able to use my TV as a makeshift sound system in lieu of a good old stereo (although the Chromecast does need to be controlled by my smartphone i.e. a less flexible solution than having a native TV Spotify app).
YouTube, Netflix, HBO GO, Prime and others are still updating their apps on my 2014 Samsung TV, but Spotify not only isn't, but decided to take the app down all together. It's obviously not about the users' convinience, at least you could explain what it's about. I'm unfortunately canceling my subscription after 5 years.
