What a joke! Can't listen to it at work, now can't listen on my TV. It's like Spotify is actively sabotaging it's own business. Improving the service is not excluding the customer

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...

Holy unbelievable discontinuation, Batman!

My 7-series Samsung TV which cost me $1500 and was marketed as having Spotify and Skype among other software, is just over 3 years old. First Skype disappeared - annoying but no deal breaker, since I only used it occasionally. But Spotify was my second most used TV app next after Netflix! Until today, apparently!!!

 

I just got home from working long hours all week and turned on the TV - my only excuse for a sound system at home - to listen to a Spotify playlist and it's gone! No explanation, no nothing. Are you **bleep**ting me? I've had a Premium account for years and this is how you treat me? Well you can take your streaming service and shove it!

 

Thank god where I live products have to work as advertised for at least 5 years, or you can return them for a full refund according to law. Spotify's name was used in the ads. Guess how happy Samsung is gonna be when half of Norway starts returning our 2 and 3 year old TVs for refunds due to YOUR **bleep**up!

I found a workaround, I guess. maybe 2.

The app seems to be gone forever, since it will only be available on Samsung TVs with Android software....

Guys, but try this:

install Samsung connect or Screen Mirroring on you phone, tablet or whatever android device you have, mirror it to your smart TV and play it that way. You will see the phone super narrow phone screen on TV, but I have an option in my Samsung TV to turn the screen off. But the sound plays fine. If you have any home theater connected to your TV, you can play it through it.

I still need to try the second option, i.e. via the built-in web browser. that should work as well and imho that will be also ok, since I hated the app although it was convenient to use any workarounds.

I really hope I helped just a bit.

 

edit: I tried the web browser, but it says it does not support the spotify web player...

this would leave us with playing music via spotify app on an adroid device and mirroring the device's screen to tv.

I can't find any other workaround right now.

Quality of sound is a bit off, but I will live with that.

I'm buying PS4 soon, so I'll have the app back

My solution is buy chromecast if you dont already have it and download the soundcast app to play from laptop/macbook
