Hi Richard,

 

Can you tell me if I can use the Sony Ericsson Expedia Mini android phone to play Spotify on. The x8, x10 and x10 pro are on the list but not this phone. 

 

Kind regards

If it's not on the list then it's not officially supported. However, if it runs Android 2.3.x then the app will probably work without too many issues. If it runs Android 4 then it will probably run, but with severe issues from time to time

I've just got the new HTC One X and after several attempts Spotify still will not open properly. It keeps asking me to log in and then says something like "new items" is not available in offline mode (even though I have an excellent wi-fi connection!).

 

The phone runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Is this not currently compatible with Spotify?

Hey all,


As of today, we're pleased to announce a special Preview of the new Android app, available at http://www.spotify.com/download/previews/

 

This should bring the app compatibility up to Android 4.0 - so if you had problems before, give it another go now, and let us know how you get on.

 

I'll edit the first post of this thread to reflect this.

Excellent news. Just out of interest Richard, for people who install this - due to it being a non-Play app - will updates still appear automatically in the Play store once it's released there, or will we need to manually uninstall this version and install the one from the app store?

I don't have a definite answer on that, but I imagine that when a new update is available through Google Play you'll be prompted to update in the client too. Assuming it just looks at the version number that is.

 

Not 100% sure about that of course, but we'll know nearer the time. Sorry I don't have a more definite answer right now.
