I'm very happy to see this progress.

 

Out of interest, though, is this the epic new Android app which was mentioned earlier, or is this an ICS update for the phone app to solve the issues that people have been having?

 

I ask, because I assumed, perhaps incorrectly, that an epic Android reboot of the app would have included a tablet version, or at least a landscape view.

This is the new rewritten app, or at least a Preview version as such. As such, new features will likely be written in before the 'proper' release. I know that folders and Last.Fm scrobbling are on the way, for instance.

OK, thanks Richard.

 

I can see others wishing for a Landscape view as well, so hopefully that'll get  a push on the feature list. I realise, though, that tablet users are still the minority.

After some problems trying to log in with my facebook account, I tried with my Spotify details and that worked. The initial problems may have been just Spotify downloading my playlists onto the phone. I started to listen to some songs by James (Goldmother) and after a few songs, the software went offline even though there was a Wi-Fi connection. To be fair the phone had just had it's first major Android update less than half an hour before and the phone had re-booted in the process and took some time to re-start.

 

Well, after about 15 minutes the Software re-established the connection and it's been working just fine since. All my playlists are showing and have been listening to songs from my playlists trouble free for about 90 minutes now. The interface is very much what I'd expected all along so for beta release of this new ICS version of the software I'm very pleased so far: Artist biography, download for offline and normal, high and extreme quality, it's all there.

 

It would be nice to have the library available so I can find my favorite artists more easily, like on the pc interface. I hope it is coming in an update. Still, good work.

 

Thanks and well done

Hi all,

 

I'm glad to hear of this new update that will be coming out. I just want to clarify: is the Android support going to remain officially limited to the enumerated phones on the website or, with this update, will it be guaranteed for all Android 4 (ICS) phones? In otherwords, guaranteed to work on all ICS platforms or 'will probably work' status with non-listed phones?

 

I've had a Thunderbolt and I love using Spotify but the app has been pretty buggy and given that it's not officially supported, there's not much recourse there. I'm looking at http://reviews.cnet.com/best-verizon-wireless-phones/ for a replacement; none of these are listed as supported on Spotify, but a bunch will have ICS.

 

TL;DR - will 'officially supported' now extend to all Android 4 phones or still just those listed on the website?

 

Thanks
Nate

I imagine that we would update the list of supported devices once the app is officially released. I'm not sure yet if it will be all ICS devices, but since they're running the same OS it would be fair to assume the app would work across the board, as a general rule of thumb.

 

Just to cover my own back though, stick to the devices page for guaranteed supported devices.

On the Verizon Galaxy Nexus.  I tried downloading the preview app because Spotify quit working yesterday for unclear reasons..  It just loads a grey screen with a menu bar at the top and then hangs.  It eventually force closes.

 

Very disappointing.

Hello!

 

I have a Samsung GT-I5510 with Android 2.2. Dos'nt Spotify work on my phone?

My problem is that the app says that it is in offline mode all the time. When I have change the passwork (a help for this problem, that I found here on this community) the spotify works for 1-2 hour, then go to offline mode.

 

What is the problem?

 

Regards Knappen

I have a GTP1000, running 2.2 - The new app seems to work OK for me, but have only upgraded today. It ran the old app fine too.  In fact, it seems to run better than my 2.3 device
