For some reason Spotify has restricted access to certain features which cripples remote control apps.
Features such as Discover, Messages, Queue management and so on. It is difficult to understand how Spotify benefits by hobbling third-party developers who are trying to make Spotify even more useful.
The whole point of having a remote control app is that you do not have to get up from your chair, walk across the room to your PC, sit down and do the necessary. Then get up, go back to your chair and sit down again. Very frustrating… especially when you realise you have forgotten something and have to repeat it all over again.
Please do something about this. I use my remote control app, Remoteless, extensively when at home, and really miss having access to some of the features which are currently not available to remote control apps working with Spotify.
