[Other] IPv6 Support

When we will be able to use Spotify without IPv4?

 

Noting your current status:

* Spotify uses Fastly for content distribution, and Fastly has IPv6 support: https://www.fastly.com/blog/ipv6-fastly

* Spotify has supported IPv6 on mobile for a while: https://labs.spotify.com/2015/11/05/oh-ipv6-where-art-thou/, which helps you with heavily v6-centric mobile networks and Apple's  v6 requirements

 

Other large content providers report nontrivial amounts of IPv6: Google frequently serves more than 20% of content over IPv6, as does Facebook, as do general CDNs such as Akamai or Edgecast. Some networks, such as my ISP, are IPv6-native with tunnelled IPv4 to the Internet. Companies, including mine, are investigating IPv6-only office and DC networks to simplify security.

 

Most of the work is in the desktop client for you. Is this on your roadmap?

We have an IPv6-only network at work for reserach and development around IPv6 - guess what doesn't work? 

 

As an Administrator of a large network for student dormitories I see quite a bit of network congestion on legacy IP - but not for IPv6 Traffic to sites like Youtube in the evening. Quite a few users unaware of IPv6 notice this difference.

Spotify, what's going on? It's about time to support IPv6!

I'm switching to an IPv6-only network next month, I'm going to have to setup 6in4 within my network to be able to use Spotify, and I'm happy to let you know that Spotify is the only thing I use that has no IPv6 support.
