I got this message yesterday & sure enough its gone today. Roku got rid of it some time ago as well. I guess its too difficult to keep track of all the accounts & millions of songs without it causing technical issues, at least thats kinda what roku said...anyway im glad i found a used PS3 the other day, so now i have spooterfy on my ancient 2014 samsung again.
As Spotify looks to improve the overall experience, the app will not be available on Samsung’s Legacy operating system on select 2015 and prior devices. For more information, and for other ways to stream on your TV, check this out.

So now the turn have come to Samsung´s product Spotify close down buy not continue their suport of libspotify. My self have a Bang&Olufsen unit that used to have a superb spotify integration but due to Spotify´s decition to stop supporting/developing lib spotify they instead forced all their existing partners to stop the interaction to Spotify.
They want to have all interaction via their on app it seems but I think Spotify is dropping premium customers buy this, I don´t see a need to have / pay for spotify anymore due to this behavour from them.
It's completely ridiculous, three years of premium subscription and my 2015 Samsung smart tv cannot play anymore! Congratulations, it's the best way to "improve the overall experience"! You've just lost another customer...
So Spotify "wants to improve" it's service to customers penalising them by removing a perfectly working app off a Samsung tv that's 2 years or older! Can you please explain how this is possibly an improvement, or even good customer service? Pathetically short sighted on your behalf. At least have the option of a historical app for older generation tv's than to just completly remove it! Yep fantastic customer service well done Spotify.
I agree, I think this is a very very poor show on Spotify’s behalf. A 2015 tv is not a legacy tv and you shouldn’t expect your valued paying customers to have to buy a new tv to be able to continue to use the service they pay for.
Same. That's pretty crappy that your answer to "improving" is literally just "take away from some people". I've had my premium spotify account since 2011, but I'm not going to by a brand new TV every time the software changes, so I'll cancel Spotify instead.
